I had high hopes for this restaurant as it looks pretty with a small number of covers and specialises in seafood. We booked it for the following day, having being told they were fully booked that evening. (although it was empty at the time 7pm). The menu prices looked high at approx €40 for a main course and we assumed... More

We saved here for our final evening, and being fish lovers were not disappointed. Yes perhaps it is a tad on the pricey side, but you do get what you pay for...and we loved it! The menu served up fish in many traditional meat style, beef substituted by Tuna or other 'meaty' fish. Very personal service and an open kitchen... More

We visited this small restaurant full of high expectations as the tables were laid up so beautifully,but were quickly disappointed. My mussels for the starter were hard & rubbery & appeared to come from a boil in the bag packet. My wife wanted a prawn cocktail but without the tinned asparagus mixed in, but was told in no uncertain terms... More

Been run by a german couple for over 30 years. They have specialised in seafood and doesnt offer any of the regular "i dont eat fish" dishes like burgers or pizza. The seafood they do serve is beautifully presented and the tastes are absolutely fantastic. Would recoomend anyone with a budget and taste for good gourmet food to pay this... More

A small and intimate restaurant where the table settings are provided with attractive and fine quality crockery, let down a bit by the paper napkins. The very size of the menu and the considerable stock of fish on view in the cabinet makes one wonder if it can all be used freshly prepared as there were only 8 diners present... More

Of all the restaurants tried on this visit to Gran Canaria, this was the best. For a place that can only seat about 14, the menu is enormous. It is fish restaurant and specialises in swordfish, tuna and sole(or an equivalent). Each one is offered in a staggering variety of ways. Just reading the menu can take a while -... More

We absolutely love this restaurant, and can honestly say that though we have been there many times throughout the years, we have never been disappointed. I absolutely love their gaius served with Berlin salad. The service is always great, and we can't understand why their TripAdvisor ratings are so low. For us no visit to the south of the island...

This small restaurant in the port of Mogan is run by a talented German chef with an obvious passion for fish and seafood. The quality of a restaurant is often inversely proportional to the size of the menu but this one breaks that rule. The menu is eclectic and extensive with fresh local seafood done in a myriad different ways... More

Compared to all the other restaurants, Caracola's offered a different menu followed by great food quality & presentation. In addition, the service was great, with the manager remembering us, even though we'd only visited once previously, with a week in between visits.
