The Restaurant Allende 22º opened its doors in Playa del Inglés in March 2017. Since then it has become a busy restaurant in the Maspalomas area, probably because the locals like to go there on a regular basis. For us, the two obvious reasons for their fame are the cosy ambience and the good value for money.
Allende 22º started in Las Palmas City
Their success in the south of Gran Canaria follows on from their excellent reputation in Las Palmas, where they have several well-established eateries. For a quick lunch with their delicious BAO bun and a drink of your choice you will spend under 10€ per person.
In the evening people like to go for a full three-course dinner, on a romantic date, or a group outing before going partying in Playa del Inglés. The restaurant is appealing and affordable for everyone, young and old, the rich and the not so rich, couples, families and groups of friends and colleagues.
Fusion Food Blowing Away our Taste-buds!
Allende 22º serves the most delicious fusion-style food in a contemporary and elegant setting. It is taking dining to a much needed new level in Playa del Inglés, and we love it! Just check out the fried Eggplants with a delicious cane honey!
The menu is extensive, but the attentive wait staff will guide you through. We usually choose a selection of starters which we all can share. A BOA Bun with the pulled pork, as mentioned above and Steak Tartare (see image below) can never be missing from our starters.
Followed by Canarian pork ribs and ceviche of the fish of the day with passion fruit and coriander. They also have a great wine list from which we recommend the tasty local wines. Don’t forget to leave room for their delicious desserts!
The star at Allende is most certainly a combination of the incredible fusion food and the slick service. They have incorporated worldwide cuisines with typical Canarian and Spanish ingredients. Allende 22º has created a menu which is not only delicious but relevant.
Allende 22º, the Ambience
As mentioned before, one of the things we love most about Allende 22º is the relaxed ambience. The restaurant is divided into two sections. One area is more suited to couples or smaller groups, its cosy, elegant and beautifully decorated. The other area, slightly more open plan, is perfect for larger groups.
The modern yet cosy interior is somewhere you’d want to hang around in. It’s the place to sample a delightful meal but also to relax and enjoy a cocktail after dinner.
How to get there
A small downside is that there is no parking immediately next to the restaurant. It lays on the Avda Tirajana, the main street in Playa del Inglés. Not far from the Edif. Mercurio which houses the main post office.
On the up side though, there is always enough parking on the Avda de Gran Canaria and its side streets only a couple of minutes away. If staying in Playa del Inglés it’s probably best to take a taxi. Then you can also have another glass of wine and enjoy one of their delicious cocktails.
Allende 22º is open from 12:00 noon right through to midnight. It is very popular with locals as well as tourists, so we would urge you to make a reservation for the evening. And we certainly recommend you visit and then return to this page and tell us what you think.
