Las Palmas has by far the best set of restaurants in Gran Canaria.
From cheap and cheerful calamares and salad by the beach to lovely food from all over the world (I’ve counted over 40 national cuisine restaurants from Peruvian to Indonesian), you can eat out every night in the city and never get bored.
Las Palmas restaurant hotspots include the beachfront for seafood, Vegueta for Spanish food and tapas, the port district for almost everything and Guanarteme barrio for authentic tapas restaurants.
If you feel like home comforts, head to Cafe Suecia for filter coffee and cake, or Maria & Stewart’s Kitchen & Bar in Triana for Cesar salad and Scotch eggs. If you feel the need for a full English breakfast, you have to get the bus to the resorts.
Meat lovers can head to El Novillo Precoz for a steak feast. It’s so Uruguayan that the website plays the Tango.
