If you are looking for the best restaurants in Agaete, here we are going to mention our favourite places. From its coastline with fish restaurants in Puerto de Las Nieves, to the unique gastronomic proposals in Gran Canaria hidden in the spectacular Agaete Valley, we’ll tell you all about it below!
The 7 best restaurants in Agaete, Gran Canaria
✔ Restaurant Casa Romántica, Agaete Valley
If you are really looking for a unique gastronomic experience in Agaete, do not hesitate to visit the Casa Romantica restaurant in the Agaete Valley. You can enjoy one of their tasting menus the Tomás Morales from €52 per person (6 passes) or the Alonso Quesada from €65 per person (7 passes). You can also order a la carte. We shared the long menu so we could try some of the dishes from the menu. Everything is spectacular and, the best thing is that here they promote local produce with fresh fish from Agaete, coffee from the Valley, Canary Island wines, Canary Island cheeses, etc. Even the olive oil and salt that accompany the bread of Ingenio are from Gran Canaria. We recommend to book in advance.
✔ Angor, one of the best restaurants in Puerto de Las Nieves
This site is located right on the beachfront of Las Nieves. Of those on the avenue, it is the one with the best fame among the locals. We suggest you order the fried moray eel and the grilled redbanded seabream. It is a VERY demanded site, so if you plan to go on a weekend, we recommend you be there at 1:00 p.m. Angor restaurant is one of our recommended places to eat fish in Gran Canaria.
✔ Restaurant La Quisquilla, places to eat in Puerto de Las Nieves
We also like the restaurant La Quisquilla very much. Here you will find seafood, meat and rice dishes. We loved their shrimp salad, chickpeas with black pig and goat pasties. The desserts we tasted were also delicious. This restaurant is located right in front of the Occidental Roca Negra hotel. You can walk there from Puerto de Las Nieves, however, we recommend going by car because of the steep climb up to the restaurant.
✔ El Cápita restaurant, restaurants in Puerto de Las Nieves
It is a very cozy place with a friendly service and spectacular views of Puerto de Las Nieves. From its dining room you can also see Villa Tonina, one of the most beautiful houses in Agaete. They are the views that we showed you in the photo at the beginning. In addition to the good atmosphere here, you can eat a tray of fried fresh fish with Canarian potatoes for a very reasonable price. Both here and in Angor you can try typical Canarian food such as the gofio.
✔ Casa Lolo, restaurants in Agaete Valley
Another restaurant in Agaete that we recommend is Casa Lolo, in Agaete Valley. It is a kind of “bochinche” where we highlight its salad with fruits. They also do good meat and grilled squid. You can combine this restaurant with the circular route through the Agaete Valley that we recommend in the article on hiking in Gran Canaria.
✔ Refugio El Hornillo, El Hornillo small village
If you are looking for a different experience in the mountains of Agaete, we certainly recommend the Refugio El Hornillo, ideal to combine with a hiking route through El Hornillo and El Sao. We highlight the homemade bread baked in the refuge with local cheeses, the fennel stew and the stewed goat meat. All this in a small village of cave houses overlooking the ravine of Agaete. However, we recommend you contact them before you go as they sometimes close randomly.
✔ Mesón del bocadillo, Puerto de Las Nieves
Another alternative in Agaete where you can eat cheaply is the Mesón del Bocadillo. This place has become a classic every time we go on an excursion in this area of the island, either for a pit stop during a bike ride or simply to eat a delicious sandwich on the beach. Here you will find a wide variety of sandwiches and unusual flavours. The place is small, so we recommend buying to take away. It is always a better option to enjoy it sitting in the Puerto de Las Nieves than inside the bar.
Other restaurants that have a good reputation for eating in Puerto de Las Nieves are the Dedo de Dios restaurant and Las Nasas. On the other hand, if you are looking for more options where to eat in Agaete, we recommend Bar Perola and also Hondo Café, although we haven’t been able to try these two yet. Do you recommend any of them that are not on the list? Remember that you have more recommendations of restaurants in Gran Canaria with our favourites on the blog.
