If you are travelling through the Canary Islands and you are wondering where to eat in Las Palmas… You are on the right place! We have prepared a list with some of the best restaurants in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. And we have included everything: local and international food, traditional and creative, cheaper and cheaper places…

If the gastronomy offer in the Canary Islands is as immense as the water that surrounds its islands, the capital of Gran Canaria takes the cake when it comes to good food. From the “pinchos” and restaurants that await you in the old colonial mansions of Vegueta, to the restaurant terraces in Las Canteras, one of the best urban beaches in the world. Here is our selection!

Casa Montesdeoca

If you are looking for a romantic restaurant in Las Palmas, Casa Montesdeoca, in Vegueta, is your best asset. Located in a colonial house from the 16th century, an emblematic enclave steeped in history a few meters from the hermitage of San Antonio Abad, the traditional Canarias market cuisine, with local and seasonal products, will make you fall in love from the starters to the dessert.

Almogrote, roasted octopus with vinegar, goat meat stew, rabbit in salmorejo or duck with apple are some of its best dishes. They are simply spectacular.

Qué Leche

Located in Triana, Qué Leche must also be part of the (very extensive) list of the best restaurants in the Canary Islands. Good family service in a small restaurant that, of course, fills up every weekend. So if you want to try their suckling pig with mashed sweet potato, the Cuban-style rice niguiris or the scrambled eggs with shrimp, among other incentives to delight your palate, don’t hesitate to make a reservation.

Mercado del Puerto

In the Mercado del Puerto you can eat good, nice and cheap. The restaurants are part of a building declared a Site of Cultural Interest, an example of modernist architecture in wrought iron.

It is also the first gastronomic market in the Canary Islands. Food stalls and tapas bars are crowded there, being one of the ideal places to have a drink near the beach, or where to have a snack before going out to live the night in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. What options do you have? Cachuk, Iberian Bocao, Moro&Martín, The Shrimp…

Llévame al huerto

In this ‘green restaurant’, of course, they pamper you, your palate and your body. As beautiful as comfy, located in one of the pedestrian streets with the most gastronomic events in the island capital, in Llévame al Huerto you eat very well and very healthy.

While there are meat and fish options, what stands out the most are the vegetarian and vegan delicacies. Their ‘healthy donuts’, the unforgettable toasts with wholemeal sourdough bread, their bowls… Everything is, we assure you, to suck your fingers.

Bululú

We continue with international food. The ‘Venezuelan touch’ is not lacking in Bululú, as well as a menu that fuses flavours and good prices, which has managed to retain the clientele who come every week to try their incredible patacones, arepas, watercress hummus, or the well-known tower of eggplants In addition, such is their success that they are in full expansion opening other Bululús in Las Palmas (you will find them in Las Canteras and Triana). Enjoy!

La Butaca de Betty

In the heart of Triana, a small restaurant stands out for the exquisite combination of ingredients that its dishes present, successfully achieving a fusion between Eastern and Western gastronomy.

You know that moment when you regret ordering a dish to share and want it all to yourself? Well, that’s what often happens in La Butaca de Betty. Tuna tartare with avocado, market ceviche, pasta bows with avocado and shrimp, black pork ribs, Lumpiang… Let your imagination run wild!

Lucira Gastrobar

This restaurant in Las Palmas is one of those that always conquers hearts and stomachs. This gastronomic oasis arose from the dream of two young chefs, María Justo and Samuel Martín.

This young couple, lovers of gastronomy and adventures alike, brings us to Las Canteras beach their particular version of the most incredible snacks they try on their trips around the world, just as they themselves proclaim.

Short menu in a show of flavors where, without going any further, the gyozas, the traditional Thai Tom Yum soup, are gratin or turned into croquettes. Delicious!
