One of the classiest restaurants around and I think it is looking for a star in the Michelin. Lovely food accompanied with selected wines and impeccable service.

Proper but easy. No flip-flops or shorts. A simple shirt and a summery dress will do. Have a great night!

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.
