Our guide to dining out in Maspalomas

We have shortlisted the best 6 gay-friendly or gay operated restaurants in our guide, however for dining we recommend escaping the Yumbo centre occassionally, hopping in a cab and checking out some of the best cusine the island has to offer!

A hidden gem within Maspalomas, El Salsete is a delightful blend local charm and excellent food; it is well worth searching out if you long for more than the typical tourist trappings which can be found on the south side of Gran Canaria.

Bamira is one of the finest restaurants in Gran Canaria. The cuisine is inspired from the owners adventure travels from around the world. The decor is superb and every dish is unique. Reservations are highly recommended.

Restaurante Calma Chicha serves contemporary Spanish cuisine with Mediterranen flourishes in a romantic setting. Try the gourmet menu, you will not be disappointed.

Close to the Maspalomas Dunes, Time Maspalomas is the town’s most charming Italian restaurant.The experience at Time’s is highlighted by the friendly staff and superior menu, comprised of homemade dishes. The atmosphere is relaxed, welcoming and cozy.

Las Rias specializes in seafood and fish from the fresh waters of northern Spain’s famous Galician rivers. With a menu of exquisite delicacies, first class table service, and beautiful panoramic views of the ocean, it’s one of the absolute top fine dining restaurants to visit in Maspalomas.

Located in the heart of Yumbo Centrum, Wapa Tapa specializes in a creative mix of traditional Spanish and contemporary international tapas. Simple yet fresh and exciting, a few of the dishes include Spanish cheeses, Canarian wrinkled potatoes and Galician-style octopus.

  • A local favourite!

    Make room for a wonderful, salt-fish sweet-potato ‘sancocho’, the local specialty accompanied by the typical ‘papas arrugadas’ or small salted jacket potatoes. Don’t forget to ask for a local wine to wash it all down: look for Denomination of Origin, Gran Canaria.
