The Italian Restaurant PEPENERO serves the most exquisite Italian cuisine. In our humble opinion it is probably one of the best Italian restaurants in whole of Gran Canaria. The Pepenero is located on the corner of Hotel Maspalomas Dunas Resort, close to the Maspalomas Golf Club and right next to the Lebanese Restaurant Beirut in Maspalomas, Gran Canaria.

We have been regulars for a long time in PEPENERO.  Here we can sit in a beautiful, relaxing ambience and enjoy good homemade Italian specialties with a nice glass of wine. The staff always makes us relax and enjoy.

The Food is Excellent

Simply said, the food is excellent. The menu is interesting with a nice selection of choice, offering true Italian specialties for affordable prices. Exquisite main courses can be ordered, such as Stone-grilled Meat, Butter/Champagne Salmon, Risotto, or their specialty Sautéed King Prawns, to name only a few.

When you come to eat at this restaurant, you do not come just for pizzas!  Although their authentic Italian pizzas are also truly delicious.

It is all the other amazing compositions, which are cooked to perfection and presented as if you were eating in a 5* restaurant.

Smoke grilled Octopus

No matter if you are a meat or fish lover, vegetarian or even vegan – you will find a nice selection of choices for starters, main courses and desserts to satisfy your appetite.

The food at PEPENERO is simply fresh and delicious and everything you would want from an Italian restaurant.

Another one of their specialties and their guest’s favorite (and ours) is the Spaghetti PEPENERO – Prepared inside a flambeed parmesan Cheese.

Ambience at Italian Restaurant PEPENERO

Restaurant PEPENERO is an informal but tasteful Italian restaurant with a touch of elegance and style every where you look. The restaurant is like one big cozy terrace were indoors blend nicely together with the outside. Its elegant and tasteful, which create the perfect atmosphere for your evening out.


PEPENERO also has a big front terrace which are ideal for a drink before or after your meal. Some days the restaurant has Live music and the terrace fills up fast from about 19:00 in the evening. If you would like a space on the terrace we recommend you make an pre-reservation by phone or online.

The Desserts

We love their delicious desserts. There is always a wide selection of typical Italian and international, desserts. There is something special for every type of sweet tooth. – Their Tiramisu is to die for 🙂


The Staff

The waiters at Italian Restaurant PEPENERO are friendly and efficient. They always make you feel welcome, joking around if you are up for it and remain their distance if you prefer privacy. The chefs are always immaculately dressed. It is obvious, the management puts a lot of pride and care into the restaurant, making sure everything runs smoothly.

How to get there

The Restaurant Its located in Maspalomas next to Hotel Dunas Maspalomas Resort, and if you come by car, there is plenty of street parking around the restaurant. If you come by foot we recommend you follow the big empty “riverbed” running through Maspalomas from the football fields past HolidayWorld all the way to the Charka. If you just follow the “river” towards the sea, you cant miss the restaurant.

Nice place with good food. However, location is away from the main nightlife areas.Prices are above average for maspalomas. Similar food available for less cost.

Overpriced and disappointing – presentation of food very good, but quality not so; I had a steak-based main that consisted of a minimal amount of steak, a significant part of which was tough and chewy.Very large venue, that was not very busy when I was there. The staff showed a varying degree of interest in me as a customer. Live music was a nice touch!

Met friends here for a meal, food was good, and it was great to get homemade tiramisu not bought in from a dessert supplier like most of the restaurants in the area.

A reliable restaurant - perfect when you want satisfying food at a good price. Pizzas are great although a little too big and loaded if you want to leave room for dessert.

We are at this moment sat in the restaurant, it's been open since December. We had some lovely food, and the guy playing the violin was amazing. Lovely staff, amazing service. Don't walk past because it doesn't look busy ,without giving it a go. You might want to head down to the beach front as you pass and ignore it, but don't because it's great.

The food was great. I asked for a rare steak, and I got just that. My husband got calzone, and it looked great and tasted amazing. The place was super nice, lots of effort put into the small things that made eating there more than just an enjoyable experience, there was various music been played and for the last half of our meal a man played the violin which was a lovely touch. My only criticism was I needed a steak knife, and the chips should have come with the meal this I'd the first time iv had to order them separately.
