Casa Serafín is one of the best restaurants in Meloneras of Canarian food. Here you can try some local dishes such as papas con mojo or gofio escaldao, although they have everything. Fish, rice, meat, pasta, etc. It has been open in Meloneras since 1958. Before, they had a beach bar on the sand. Everything changed when the Meloneras shopping center was built where they are now. What a pity!
✔ El Churrasco steakhouse Meloneras €€€
Another of the Meloneras restaurants to consider is El Churrasco inside the Lopesan Costa Meloneras hotel. They are specialized in quality grilled meats. This restaurant is not cheap, but its location on the promenade with views of the sea and the sunset is one of the most privileged. The Churrasco Meloneras also has direct access from the street, even though it is inside the hotel. This grill is well known on the island, in fact they have another restaurant in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

If your budget to eat in Meloneras is small, we recommend you consider the option of the brewery Cervecería La Ruta. Its cuisine is more of a fast food type with hamburgers, nachos, samosas, papas bravas, etc. although they also have some salads and meats. In any case, if you order a hamburger and a drink you can eat for €15 with views of Meloneras beach. On Sunday afternoons they usually have a very good atmosphere and even live music.

Another well-known restaurant in Meloneras is El Caldero. Caldero is the term we use to refer to pots in the Canary Islands.

This restaurant has changed ownership, so we don’t know how it works at the moment. In any case, it is located in the Hotel Faro Collection, in a privileged location just a few steps from the beach and the Faro de Maspalomas lighthouse.
There are also other places to eat in Meloneras that have recently opened, such as the restaurant Kabuki Gran Canaria, the Nihao and the Ceniza Restaurant, but we have not yet had the pleasure of trying them.
