It is true that the Qué Leche restaurant is more yummy than ever. We have been there about five times and it always surprise us. Their owners are a couple of chefs which studied and met each other at the famous Basque Culinary Center, in San Sebastián, Spain.
About Qué Leche restaurant
In their proposals they present a mix of flavors and a kind of influence of kitchens from different parts of the world with excellent dishes presentation. Each of the menu items are created by themselves and each dish is exclusive. This means that you won’t find a restaurant in Gran Canaria which imitates them. They have a very good service team, so let’s say that this is one of the best restaurants from the island. Without fancy things and you pay for what you order, no more, no less. In addition of what you can see in the picture below, they have two small bars where there is place for two people in each one and a pair of tables in the terrace. That’s it!
Qué Leche restaurant menu
Let’s get to the point! The restaurant Qué Leche menu is not that large. However, we warn you that everything will draw your attention, so that is quite difficult to chose. What they recommend and, we also do, is to order some dishes to share. So you can try more things.
The last time we went to the restaurant Qué Leche we were six people, so we could try a lot of dishes. We ordered as a starter squid croquettes with alioli, some kind of tuna tartar (poke), squids with pistachio, wagyu tataki, roast piggy and tacos with octopus omelette. As an appetizer (run of house) they served us carrot and apple crudités with some sauce and olive oil with hot bread.
Some of its dishes
We started with the squid croquettes with alioli. The alioli is a Spanish sauce made of garlic and olive oil. They prepare them so yummy!
Next, we tried the octopus omelette tacos. An explosion of sauces and awesome flavors. To be honest, they where de-li-cious.
We also tried the poke. This time they didn’t have the tuna one, it was made from another fish called in Spain medregal. It is marinated fish with prawns, pineapple, avocado and corn. And for the perfect snack it comes with some kind of nachos. Very tasty.
Another dish is the Saharan squid with ink, Parmesan cheese and pistachios. Though it was delicious, we liked the most the crunchy food which came with the squids.
The taste of the wagyu tataki was awesome. The wagyu is meat from a Japanese cow. It is said that there are four races of cows which could be named wagyu. The most characteristic things of this animals is that they live in a non stressful place and they are feed with a mix of cereals: rice, corn, barley and other kind.
If you like the roasted piggy, you should order this dish. Moreover, thanks to the sauce which comes with the mashed sweet potatoes it is super juicy. It is mouth-watering!
We enjoyed the meal with a good quality red wine from Gran Canaria. The Agala 1775. This wine is produced in the village Tejeda at the wine cellar Bentayga at 1775 meters high (as the name of the wine).
Let’s follow with the desserts. We ordered the cheese cake, the passion fruit cream and chocolate valrhona. The passion fruit cream wasn’t bad, but it was to sweet from my point of vire. You have to like a lot the sweet things or the passion fruit. There were inside some kind of small biscuits (streusel).
The chocolate valrhona wasn’t bad neither, they had a peanut touch. Maybe this portion isn’t enough if you are planing to share the dessert.
The cheese cake Qué Leche eclipsed the other desserts which we tried. It is also quite small, so we had to order another one. Sincerely, the best cheese cake I have ever tried.
Definitely, the restaurant Qué leche highlights because of the originality of its main courses and the mix of flavors. The desserts are not anything special, except for the cheese cake.

Concerning the price, we ordered for six people two dishes of each of the above mentioned ones + two bottles of wine + 4 desserts. It is about € 50 per person. You have to consider that the food is from very good quality. Additionally, the preparation an flavor of its courses are singular and awesome. Furthermore, you should also know that the red wine is also a good quality one from Gran Canaria, the restaurant location, the service, etc. So that, we can say that the relation quality-price from the Qué Leche restaurant is not bad. it is true that we order a lot, maybe we should better have avoided one dish, but everything is so yummy and we didn’t want to miss anything.
