Restaurants in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
✔ Places to eat in Las Palmas local food
1. Restaurant La Marinera, Las Canteras €€€
La Marinera specializes in Canarian food. You can see the fresh fish of the day exposed in their fridge. If you want to try the local fish, we recommend the grilled cherne and the vieja fried. You should also dare with the gofio, made with the fish stew. We personally love the house salad and the fried octopus. They have an indoor dining room and also terrace overlooking the sea and the entire beach of Las Canteras.
2. Las Lagunetas, favorite restaurants in Las Palmas of local food, Triana €€
It can be said that it is one of the few places with good local cuisine in the neighborhood of Triana. In addition, the staff is very nice and familiar. Las Lagunetas has a double terrace and the interior is quite spacious, so it is not necessary to book, nor accept reservations … If you do not know what to order here, ask the waiter. We last had the opportunity to try the cherne fish with onion with gofio pella, potatoes and sweet potato out of the menu. Anyway, from their menu we recommend the roast pork leg (pata asada) and the papas con mojo or potatoes with mojo sauce.
✔ Restaurants in Las Palmas of Spanish food
3. Restaurant Nákar, Guanarteme €€€
This restaurant specializes in Basque Navarra cuisine in one of the coolest neighborhoods in the capital. The place is spectacular, the service attentive and its gastronomic proposals full of flavor. What more could you want? His chef is a young man from Navarra trained at the Basque Culinary Center and, after his experience as head chef at the Summum restaurant, he decided to open his own restaurant in 2021. The price per person is around €40, if you can afford it, it is highly recommended.
4. El Arrosar restaurant, best Spanish food restaurant in Las Palmas, Las Canteras €€
This restaurant in Las Palmas is specialized in Galician cuisine and rice dishes. We love their black rice and cuttlefish with garlic. In addition, in their menu they have Galician delicacies such as empanadas, octopus, seafood, etc. By the way, they also usually have coquinas off the menu, a delicacy that they cook very tasty. The restaurant is owned by the same owners as the Ribera del Río Miño (more posh and expensive).
5. Triciclo, Vegueta €€
Triciclo restaurant is one of the few places where you will eat VERY well and at a great price. Also, the service is good and fast. It is located in Vegueta and has a nice outdoor terrace. It is not a restaurant with years of experience, but its incorporation into the offer of the city has been welcomed by each of the people who have tried and talked about it. We recommend the octopus and potato salad: ensaladilla de pulpo. They accept reservations inside and also on the terrace.
6. Qué Leche, Triana €€€
Qué Leche is undoubtedly one of the best on the island. In fact, we have already recommended it in our post about restaurants in Gran Canaria It offers good service, but with a familiar touch. Each of its dishes is an explosion of flavors. Normally, you must book in advance, especially on weekends, since it is becoming famous and is tiny. We recommend the eggs with sweet potato, shrimp and truffle mayonnaise and the boneless suckling pig with sweet potato puree, although everything is delicious.
7. Deliciosa Marta, one of the best restaurants in Las Palmas, Triana €€€€
Deliciosa Marta is also one of the best restaurants in Las Palmas and in Gran Canaria. It has a delicious gastronomic offer and top quality service. Here you have to book at least 3 months in advance. We love their steak tartar, Russian salad and the truffled gnocchi.
8. Bululú Canarias, Las Canteras and Triana €€
Bululú Canarias has managed to retain its clientele through the fusion of flavors and good prices that it offers in its restaurants. Its owners are Venezuelans, so here you can try their delicious arepas and patacones. Anyway, we invite you to be surprised by its homemade foie gras, watercress hummus and the well-known tower of aubergines. They have recently opened their second restaurant in the La Cícer area with dishes more linked to the sea.
9. Anteo Bar Gastronómico, restaurants in Las Palmas (port area) €€
Anteo Gastronomic Bar offers a varied and fun gastronomic proposal. It has been part of the restaurant offer in Las Palmas since recently, but it is already emerging. Among its star dishes is the ceviche with red shrimp and the pork sandwich. In its menu you will find other typical dishes of the world with the Anteo touch, such as the Tikka Masala or the Mexican Aguachile.
10. Fuji, Guanarteme €€€
One of the best places to eat in Las Palmas Japanese cuisine is the Fuji restaurant. And it was the first Japanese restaurant in Spain. It offers creative Japanese food and also features the traditional dishes of this country such as soups, sushi and sashimi. For us, the best of the Fuji are the special sushis that are ordered per piece and the carpaccio of bluefin tuna. The site is much in demand, so remember to book in advance.
