My favorite place in Gran Canaria is the Las Canteras promenade with wonderful views and amazing the restaurants. By the way, an interesting fact is that Italian cuisine is cooked here better than Spanish.
But on my list, besides the Las Canteras restaurants i also share 1 place in the mountains.
P.S.: I update this list after each trip. And we come to the island every year!
And if it’s your first time on the island, I advise you to read my article with the best places on the island – Top-11 Places to visit in Gran Canaria
Asador Grill de Yollanda
This is a traditional Canarian restaurant in the heart of the island. It is located in the mountains, a 5-minute drive from the Picos de las Nieves viewpoint. Chickens and roosters walk between the tables and will ask you for the food. Be sure to dine here on a day trip around the island. You have no idea what traditional food in the Canaries really is!
Breakfast places in Las Palmas De Gran Canaria
Bakery with delicious coffee, buns and desserts. And most importantly, the view. You eat your breakie right on the promenade with stunning views of the sandy beach and the ocean.
Location: Paseo las Canteras, 12
2. Mad Bread
A tiny Stylish cafe with a few tables inside and few outside. Here they do a very good coffee. However the baking is not that tasty as in the previous places. For the breakfast they have a variety of crepes, waffles, sandwiches etc.
Location: Calle Gran Canaria, 14
3. Juicy avenue
This is a healthy food place. They have avocado toasts, different types of fresh juices, smoothies, pokes and bowls. My favorite one is an açaí smoothie.
Location: Calle Sagasta 46
Best places to eat in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria:
1. Il Segreto Di Pulcinella
Oh my god. They cook such a good pizza! Restaurant is located a bit apart from the main tourist flow, but you need to try it out!
Adress: Calle Nidillo – Mirador de la Caleta – La Puntilla
2. Las Canteras Family Restaurant
Restaurant with a home cooked meals and huge portions. It’s run by a very nice Bulgarian family and I’d say that it’s the most soulful place on the promenade.
Adress: C. Tenerife, 24
3. Amigo Camillo
It is a super romantic place with a great ocean view and not expensive and tasty seafood.
Location: Calle Caleta 1
4. Los Calderos de Nando
This restaurant has huge portions at reasonable prices and very tasty seafood. I especially liked Ceviche. But the most important thing you should try here are the desserts. Here I ate the best Tiramisu ever. It was as cooked by an Italian grandmother.
Adress: Calle Dr. Miguel Rosas, 41
5. Restaurante Ons
A tiny but very good restaurant with awesome food and beautiful meals.
Adress: C. Portugal, 13
Best Ice cream in Gran Canaria
Heladeria Pena La Vieja
A shop with delicious Italian ice cream. Located right on the waterfront. On warm days, the line to the shop covers the entire promenade. Now the place became a chain and you may find this ice-cream in other shops and bakeries. But this one is the main one.
Location: 50, Paseo las Canteras, 4
Gelizia – coffee place with delicious Italian ice-cream. My ritual – come here and meet the sunset with Italian coffee and pistachio gelato.
Adress: Paseo las Canteras, 9.
