Excellent food, outstanding and friendly service, we loved it. It is quite pricey, but well worth it because they include so many extras, such as amuse-bouches. Restaurant was fairly quiet when we visited.

A very very nice restaurant with dishes worth coming back for again and again. Relaxed in a casual way but real sharp service.

La Aquarela is located close to the Radisson Blue (200m). It's a bit difficult to find the entrance of the restaurant as you have to enter first into a building (putting some signs would solve the problem) Excellent dishes, well prepared, well presented. Top quality ingredients. The service was also very friendly and professional Worth the money (around 65 Euro... More

Very nicely presented food. Upmarket classy restaurant in Aquamarina apartment complex. Overlooks pool where some people came just to hear the music - pianist was playing jazzy cool music Staff very good and attentive. Expensive and probably a little over priced but had lovely special Birthday dinner.

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

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.
