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.

La Cabañita Park Balcony in Tree

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.

The Desserts

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 Staff

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.

Beautiful tranquil restaurant. We stopped for lunch after Palmitos Park, and the food was delicious, with big portions and affordable prices.We had 2 main courses, one was chicken and the other one was rabbit. We also had fried fish fillet with garlic sauce as a starter, which comes nearly as a full course by the size of the portion.I would recommend this place for lunch if you're nearby.Also, the fresh orange juice was delicious!

Simply amazing. On an island where almost everything is touristified so much that there's nothing special to experience, this place stands out: high quality food, traditional music to set the atmosphere, simply spotless service. Amazing.

Wasn't sure what to expect as is in the road where tourist passing by on the way to an entertainment place ,but when I see locals having food here,I knew we are in the right place.There was a warm welcoming offering plenty of choices as it was an early afternoon "dinner" , wasn't busy just yet.We choose in our best knowledge,meanwhile we were waiting I had a look a chef took a biig piece of meat from a fridge (there is window so you can see too.So he wasn't ashamed he cut of a very big chunk, placed it onto the grill,turned out that was my wife's choice of a stake.I had some starter or small meal as a baguette with olive oil some small chopped tomato and fine cut meat and it was soo delicious I was well happy with the place.All in all I think the price is very reasonable,food is quality service is very good and me as I use to work behind the grill:that was very clean as well.Typical place what I looking for,pure authentic and visited by locals as well.

This is one of the most cosy restaurants I’ve been to in GC. The decor is so extremely kitsch (and I mean that in the most endearing way) that it’s absolutely fantastic. I would recommend the Angus entrecot and the rabbit in garlic. You’d pay 3x more anywhere else for such a good steak. The owner/manager approached our table no less than three times to ask of everything was ok. Will come again.

This place was incredible. The atmosphere is nice and natural. Some nights there's a guy walking around playing a guitar which makes it even better. The wait staff was very nice and their English was pretty good as well. The menu had like 5 different translations which made life easier. We got the melon with cured ham and the garlic bread with ham and tomatoes to start which were already. But the spare ribs were the real show as they simply fell off the bone. Theyre probably the best ribs I've ever eaten. I couldnt recommend this place enough.

We absolutely love this restaurant up in the mountains. Food is always delicious and the staff is very friendly. On Friday and Saturday there is always live music. Staff recognises us each time and is always very happy to see us. There is enough space to park your car. During the holidays, it is wise to make a reservation :-).

Atmosphere is nice and cosy.Food was okay, but overpriced and far from the pictures. We ordered "ropa vieja" which shoved a huge octopus in the picture, but in reality, it was just a couple thin slices, couldn't even find it at first.Waitress was extremely cold and maybe not in the mood.

Great spot, authentic canarian food. You known its good because its out of the way and on its own on the road to Palmitos Park but is still very popular.While we were there some locals were setting up an area for a celebration the following day.5 euro in a taxi from playa del ingles.Some interesting dishes to share, like the sombrero mixed meats and sauces dish for two.Guys going from table to table singing and playing violin and guitar, they played 'last cucaracha' for our kids, they were lovely and really made the place and added to the ambience.It's all outside dining but feels inside.Worth a trip, the taxi driver was getting excited for us going in, you could smell the grill on the road from half a mile away.

Fantastic place, nice location in a walleye of Playa del English, 15 minutes drive from Maspalomas and nice roads. Free Wifi and welcoming staff. The food from the barbeque amazing, full dinner for to with drink's and dessert less than 40 Euro's. The food was incredibly good that we ordered, but it was possible to get a large selection of meat, cooked in many ways, we chose to get off the grill and did not regret it. It was half a chicken, and pork ribs, it came with a salad that was exceptionally fresh and good, a taste that most closely resembles world-class home-grown, but it is rare that vegetables are as tasty in Spain as there, real potatoes with a suitable amount of spices and a tasty sauce that matched the whole thing. The chicken had a taste that was a mixture of good spices, which made the meat delicious, and not too cooked, nor too spicy, so each bite was delicious all over. The pork ribs were in the master class in quality, and a lot of meat that flowed from the bones and cooked to perfection, so that only the bones were left on the plate. The service of the place was fast and good, with friendly staff and the wait for food was almost non-existent and after dinner the dishes were taken immediately. Shortly after that, the chef came with everyone the types of desserts on the tray, explained to us what was what, and although we were well fed and happy after dinner, we did not stand temptation and we got the best tirimisu I have ever tasted. There was a large selection of light wine and soda that came ice cold, with cloves and lemon slices and cloves in the heat. It was possible to choose a seat that had sun and in the open air and also in the shade without it being too much. Comfortable seats, tableware very neat and like new. It was a very cozy atmosphere and no pressure, nor waiting for service. I encourage everyone who wants to enjoy the food just from the city, all day in this place and if I could, I would have given my all a total of 6 stars if possible. Thank you very much for us, and it is a sure thing that we will go there again. But the price was exemplary for all this, and I doubt any place owns it The English coast can do better than this, at this price. And I have lived there for two years and I consider myself to be a speaker with some experience. Thank you very much, see you soon. Best regards and triple hooray. Good luck to you.

We expected more. Food is okay, but it tastes like canteen food with restaurant prices.Garlic bread costs 1,80€ for one small piece of bread. Ridiculous

Fantastic place with great food and atmosphere. We went twice. Both times food was 5☆! On the second visit there was a live music, Spanish duo with classic guitar and violin. It was very romantic and added authenticity to the place.Mixed kebab and fillet mignon is a must meal in there!

Not bad. We just had a few of the warm starters and really enjoyed them. Not fancy dining at all, but enjoyable for what it was. Every table there has an ashtray on it, but we managed to find somewhere where nobody was smoking. Also the decaffeinated coffee was a cup of frothy milk with a sachet of decaf.

Is a fun park for the family if you like climbing activities. I enjoyed the terrace overlooking the mountains. Their food is ok and the price is right. You don't have to pay admission if you want to hang out there, only if you are using the climbing area. I did all the climbing circuit/levels, and only the last one (red) is hard. The other ones are very easy even for kids after 10.

Pretty cool place. Being a bit off from the masses is a big plus for peaceful dinner. But what's the story of enormous portions? Come on, even the hardeating individuals like myself are not able to enjoy anything else, if main dish is gargantuan. I'm not a specialist, but suspect that it also harms business 🙂

Excellent Spanish restaurant. While the majority of resort restaurants are either openly Italian or mainly serve pasta and pizza with Paella, it's great to find something that feels like the real thing. It's in the middle of nowhere (on the road to Palmitos Park). There's no pasta or pizza. Plenty for kids. Our youngest, 9, had the spare ribs and loved them. Service and food are excellent. Wood fired barbecue and oven. We went on Thursday pm for the live music. Two very nice gentlemen and their Spanish guitars, with no English, move around the tables and charm you with their smiles and song. Easily the meal and experience we all enjoyed the most.

  1. The best restaurant I’ve ever visited.

    1. Wow, that is nice to hear. I will let them know. Judith

  2. 10 Min. taxi drive.

    This restaurant is about 10 min drive inland from Playa del Ingles. Do yourself the favor to visit. It will be the highlight of your holiday.

  3. Everything Top

    Fantastic place. A must if you like to try a real canarian restaurant.

  4. Perfect family restaurant.

    Such a wonderful restaurant. The food and the staff are top notch. But the décor and the details in this place are something to write home about. (even a playground for the kids) The place is so cozy that you don’t want to leave.

  5. Comming Back

    Everything was good. We will be back.

  6. 5 Star

    A real Canarian restaurant. This place offers the best of the Canarian kitchen. Here every guest receives top quality food to fair prices. Its a bit out of the way. But ones you arrived you will definitely feel a wow what a authentic beautiful place. Here you can have a proper holiday memory dinner. Its not just a meal. Its a place to talk about to friends and family.
