The Restaurant La Cabañita Park on the road to Palmitos Park is one of those MUST TRY places in the south of Gran Canaria. They open every day from 12 noon, so any time is a good time. If you like entertainment during dinner, we recommend to go on Thursdays or Saturdays when live musicians sing the most beautiful serenades while moving discretely from table to table.
We became regulars once we discovered La Cabañita Park. When we fancy sitting in a beautiful Canarian ambience and enjoying good Canarian food, we come here, only a stone throw away from Maspalomas.
The Food is Excellent
Simply said, the food is excellent. The menu is big, offering true Canarian and Spanish tapas for affordable prices. Exquisite main courses can be ordered, such as Filet Mignon, spareribs with palm honey or juicy beef skewers, to name only a few.
La Cabañita Park is well known for their grill platter for two: A table grill is brought to you and a plate of selected fresh meat cuts, which you can cook to your exact personal taste.
At the open-plan charcoal grill area, Chorizo Parillero (lightly spiced sausages), Canarian potatoes and Papas Panaderas, which are oven baked potato slices with red peppers and onion are ready from the early evening. The delicious smell makes the mouth water before you even sit down.
Everything is immaculately clean and well kept. The kitchen is wide open, showing off a big charcoal grill, a bread oven and glistening steel appliances. Anyone can watch the chefs efficiently preparing the ordered plates.
In the glass fridges next to the open-plan kitchen, you can inspect the fresh meat cuts ready prepared for cooking, and directly choose from there what you heart desires.
Ambience at La Cabañita Park
The Ambience at La Cabañita Park stands high and above any other Canaria restaurant we have ever eaten at in Gran Canaria. When you enter the restaurant, you feel like you are entering a park, in the true meaning of its name.
There are hanging plants everywhere, small trees in pots here, wines there, interspersed with antiques and running fountains, enveloping anyone who enters into feeling of relax and calm. Never would you think that you are a mere 10 minutes from the hustle and bustle of Gran Canaria busiest tourist town of Playa del Inglés.
We love the way they present the home-made desserts the authentic Canarian way. The waiter brings the whole tray with the different desserts to your table, and explains what each one is made of. When you pick the one you like, they bring you a new one from the kitchen.
The waiters at La Cabañita Park 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.
The Kids Play Area
La Cabañita Park is very popular amongst families with small kids, as the children’s play area lays central in the restaurant and visible from most tables. A bouncy castle, table football, climbing frames and much more assure that your children are entertained, while you can enjoy having a chat with your company over a glass of wine.
Celebrations and Birthdays
For celebrations of any size they have a adequate spaces indoors and outdoors. A separate room for up to 12 people with their own entrance. A room for 100 people next to the wine-cellar, and a whole banquet area for hundreds of people, who can be catered from the main kitchen.
How to get there
Only about 5 minutes drive from the AQUALAND on the way to PALMITOS PARK, if you come by car. There are plenty of parking spots which belong to the restaurant. A taxi costs about 12€ from the nearby Maspalomas. And the GLOBAL bus lines nº 45 or nº 70 drive right past.
