the location seems to be in some sort of apartment complex, with a few restaurants and stores inside. The entrees are good but the appetizers could be better. the place is good but not great.

We Love this place, fantastic, genuine food and excellent service. Service is Michelin level. Mix of Spanish and Some local dishes. We come every year, IT is a true gourmet restaurant with all the demands you can have as a food lover. The wine choices are excellent, ask for local or Spanish wines. Spectacular view over the ocean. Go here!!

Myself, the wife & toddler in buggy Strolled in unannounced. I think we got the best table in the restaurant, close to the the piano man. (he was brilliant) The meal was a treat, the foods & produce were cooked expertly well. Great flavour, I had a few beers instead of wine, which probably was a mistake on my part.... More

Are here last year at Christmas and had a fantastic meal so decided to book again for 25th December again this year. As before the service, food and overall experience was fantastic and we booked again for the 30th. The Lobster Bisque was amazing as was the Suckling Pig and we loved the desserts. I love everything about this place... More

Difficult to explain why this restaurant hasn't got a michelin star. We've got michelin star restaurants in Sweden not better than this one. Food and sauces are amazingly tasty and well presented, wine menu is top selection and service is friendly and extremely profesional. Best restaurant in Gran Canarias. We also tried the sushi Bar after reading one of the... More

Came here for a birthday dinner while staying on Gran Canaria and it was great. It is a very high quality dining experience and worth the price. The waitstaff were friendly and welcoming when we arrived and we had a nice table overlooking the pool and nearby resorts. They started us off with some really great nice and creative appetisers...

Me and my husband tried it twice and we really loved it. Awesome food and service. Really deserves the Michelin Star! Our last night we decided to try the Sushi Oyster bar by The Aquarela and we had such a lovely experience! (Wished we had tried it before). Chef Dave was very close and friendly and made a superb sushi,... More

Visited here Fri evening and could not have been more impressed. On arrival I was informed that there was a table becoming free on the terrace if I would like to wait. Philippe the acting manager/sommelier was so attentive with the wine list and recommend some different wines than my normal 'safe' ones for each course!!! Delighted I did! The... More

Last time we visited Aquarella I brought my kids at 7 and 8 years. They were welcomed really well and the staff accommodated the few changes needed for them. The food is fantastic and Gregory is a fantastic host.

The restaurant “La Aquarela” is located in front of the ocean in Patalavaca, in the south of Gran Canaria. It opened more than 20 years ago with one goal, to offer the pleasure of tasting a refined cuisine in a privileged environment.After several years of an excellent reputation, it was actually from 1994 the restaurant La Aquarela rounded it qualities with the arrival of its new owner, Gregorio Fernández.Gregorio not only continues with the reputation of the restaurant on the island, but also rather consolidates its name, making it a reference.In its constant evolution, the restaurant knows how to combine the quality and consistency, offering its distinguished clientele a place to return, a place to enjoy self-indulgent moments.
