Knowing where to eat in Agaete and being right is not easy. There is a wide range of restaurants and all seem the same. Do not worry, keep reading and we’ll help you to choose the right one. As you may have appreciated, as well as reading in our post about this town, Agaete is a fishing village. Therefore, the best you can do is let yourself be seduced by their fresh local fish and seafood. Anyway, if you do not like this kind of food, we give you another alternative. So we recommend you two places, so you will not have to break your head a lot.
Where to eat in Agaete. El Cápita restaurant
Let’s start with the top recommendation. It’s the restaurant El Cápita. A very cozy place with family treatment 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.
In addition to the good atmosphere that is breathed in this place, you can eat a tray of fresh fish with potatoes wrinkled for € 12 for two people. This dish is called in the menu “parrillada“and the price indicated is € 24, but it is recommended to share it between 3-4 people. If you are just two, with a half portion is enough, so that you can to try other dishes from the menu. In this half ration come three local fish (one of them named vieja), papas arrugadas, mussels and prawns.
In the same way, we also suggest the combo. If you go with someone else and you are going to ask for the “parrillada“, with half portion of the combo it will be enough (€ 9). This combo comes with calamari, croquettes, squids, octopus, mussels, fried fish and papas arrugadas con mojo.
Finally, as it is a restaurant specialized in fish, the gofio escaldado here is deicious. You can not leave Gran Canaria without trying it. The gofio is corn or wheat flour. To make it “escaldado”, the fish-cooking broth is added to the flour. In Gran Canaria, we usually eat it with red onion. In this case we use the red onion as a spoon.
Menu El Cápita restaurant
As we usually do, we leave you photos of the restaurant menu, in case you have doubts before going. You will see that they have wide variety and that the prices are affordable. Therefore, we could catalog this restaurant as cheap within the Gran Canaria offer.
And here you can see the bill for two people. For less than € 15 you will enjoy fresh fish with the best views. Impossible to find a better place to eat in Agaete.
Mesón del bocadillo (sandwich place)
Another alternative that we propose you where to eat in Agaete is the Mesón del Bocadillo. It is right next to El Cápita restaurant. This site becomes a classic every time we go hiking in the west of Gran Canaria. For example, a technical stop on the way to Güigüi beach, both for breakfast and to take away to eat it on the beach. Here you will find a large variety of sandwiches. In addition, they are not common sandwiches. We like the cheese, dried tomato, arugula and aubergine sandwich, as well as the Spanish tortilla with caramelized onions… They also serve delicious Italian coffee. The place is small, we recommend buying to take away. It will always be a better option to enjoy it facing Puerto de Las Nieves than inside the bar.
We hope you have found it useful to know these options where to eat in Agaete and you love this town as much as everyone who visits it.
