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.

My son and I came here on day 3 of our holiday and thoroughly enjoyed the food. The service raised the experience to an even higher level. Mario was amazing! It was so good we returned for our last night and it did not disappoint.My pasta was gorgeous and my son loved his pizza. Bravo!!

We had some great pizzas here, especially the Capricciosa was delicious. The service was good and they were really kind. We were wondering why the place was pretty quiet (maybe because it was not high season), because of the quality and the good service. They even had a violin player playing classical music beautifully.

Probably the best lasagna I have ever eaten. Good prices, great service, lovely wine, just awesome. We will rerun before we have to fly home. We were early at 6;30 and when we left at 8:30 it was pretty busy so you might want to book.

The bresaola pizza was very delightful and so was the meat. They had live music which was very well played. We got our food in just some minutes and the personal was nice.

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.
