The place is an absolutely must when staying in this end of Gran Canaria.Book in advance since a very popular place.The service is super friendly and knowledgeable.Food was amazing!Atmosphere is family style.I missed that the squid and prawn main dish was WITH curry, my bad.Their entrecote is actually a REAL entrecote, Soo hard to find on this island.Wine list typical Spanish wines with friendly prices. We selected the Paramos from 2018, Soo good!Worth a big detour!

Fantastic food and a wonderful atmosphere! I only wish I had more room to enjoy even more dishes. The staff were exceptionally nice and friendly. Faced with indecision about an extra dish, they graciously allowed us to share one to help us decide. Absolutely loved the experience! I’m definitely planning to return on my next trip to Gran Canaria!

Wonderful flavours, food well cooked, very fresh, well presented. We always visit when in Gran Canaria and Don Quijote never fails to impress - the restaurant is always bustling and busy, staff are friendly and efficient - led by the most exceptional owner who is very hands on and knows her business.Very recommendable, great value for money.

It was a disappointment, not because of the food which was perfect, but the service of the female waiter was almost rude! Our starter was served to some other customers and there wasn't a single explanation for us having to wait, and not even when we allowed ourselves to ask - we think it would be a good idea to work with a little customer service"You were told that we had made a mistake and that it would take us five minutes to make your two garlic breads and thus correct the mistake"We were told nothing and only got a very measured answer when we dared to ask....."She apologized, she informed you of the time it would take to correct the mistake"No, we were told NOTHING - therefore it could be good for you to work with customer service

Real bargain for the lunch time! Their daily menu is 12€ (drinks extra but you'll get little welcome included in the price) and everything is homemade and worth every euro- it's served from 13:00-17:00 I've ordered fish soup and homemade meatballs with white rice. Both dishes were very tasty 😇 The service is very attentive, quick and very pleasant. Try it if you're around. For the dinner time I think is necessary to book because this place is quite popular...
I think the first time I visited Don Quijote must be 30 years ago, when I was a kid. Last time (before now) was around 15 years ago. The meal I had the other day was just as good as I remembered from all those years ago. Very reasonably priced for the quality of food; wine was lovely; service excellent. Would definitely recommend. But be warned : come with an empty stomach, because you will be full when you leave!

We went twice in 10 days, and it is absolutely on point. Great quality food, fairly priced and nice location, the staff are friendly and attentive.The only downside is they shut in the summer. If not, we would attend every time we go to Gran Canaria, which is approximately 4 times per year.Keep it up, folks, you should be proud. It is excellent.

Wonderful varied menu - the dishes we chose were amazing - cheese pate (almogrote), croquettes, cod in a seafood sauce and the veal ossobooco (which was huge and absolutely gorgeous) - the staff were lovely. We had an outside table elevated with high bar stools which was perfect. My only criticism is that they brought us hot fresh rolls with hummus and butter which felt like a complimentary ‘amuse bouche’ but it was added to our bill - we wouldn’t have ordered this as we had bread with our pate and huge meals so it wasn’t necessary. I would decline this another time. Otherwise highly recommended and we will definitely go back.

Great experience! Our server did a wonderfull job and was providing service like any fine dining place you would visit. On top of that, the ossobuco was all you would want!I didn't take the best picture unfortunately but please do consider the ossobuco!

Definitely the best food we have had in Puerto Rico so far! We have tried menu of the day which were chicken salad and croquettos with chicken and Serrano ham for starters, and fish in green sauce for mains. It was delicious! The service was great, too. We wil be back! 🙂 Thank you!

My partner and I went here last night as the reviews looked great. I've seen so many reviews saying lots of other restaurants were 'The Best' in Puerto Rico but this restaurant was by far the best in every department. The staff are so friendly and attentive and so professional at their jobs. The atmosphere is so peaceful and the food was delicious. We will be back, thanks for a great night : )

Booking a table is essential as this family run restaurant gets busy even when it's quiet season.The reason for this is that it serves great food cooked to a high standard. Quality really counts here.Everything on the menu is recommended as everything is just great - including the frogs legs!The restaurant closes from end of May to beginning of September each year.

Best meal we have had so far in Puerto Rico by far. Excellent customer service, impressive the waiting staff could could converse comfortably in so many languages. The food was superb, we were surprised when the bill came as we would have expected to pay much more. Muchas gracias!

Food was very good, but serving was too slow. We got bored between the servings.The cutlery was high quality. Points for that also.

We were lucky to get a table inside without a booking.Excellent service from all the staff. Food is real quality, we both had a fish dish each for our main course. I would recommend anyone to try it.

The staff are so kind and pleasant. The curry and snails were incredible! Staff provided us with some sort of fruit shot at the end to top it off. Wonderful!

We had three courses night menu, where everyone could each select their respective dish. The food was visually pleasing and good, but slightly bland. The service was excellent.

We had the tasting menu for two in the corner restaurant, which is separate from the main restaurant. You need to book two days in advance. Really nice; for me the iberian pork was the best course, my wife thought it was the tuna; all the courses were excellent. You need to have plenty of time on your hands as it takes about two hours or so. Relax and enjoy!

What a fantastic restaurant. The food is top class and is exceptional value. We tried a lot of different restaurants in Peurto Rico but none could match for quality or taste. The staff were very helpful and friendly. An overall extremely enjoyable and satisfying experience.

Excellent food, not the cheapest but quality makes it value for money. Good service and presentation. You'll probably need to book most days but well worth it, many customers seem to be repeat business.

Very good restaurant!We had the chateaubriand "Puerto Rico" which was perfectly cooked.The employees really understand their jobs. They are extremely friendly, polite and attentive.The waitress spoke at least 4 languages.Location is very good as well, quiet and cosy near the beach, not as noisy as some of the other restaurants in the town's center.Highly recommended!!!

Yummy scrummy. I had the almagrote cheese pate for starter and the fillet steak Don Quijote. The only reason it lost a star is that the last two mouthfuls of beef were undercooked. But the rest was so delicious that I'm not actually that bothered.

We entered at 21:10 and host was not really welcoming and told us that we have to leave because they would close now. After we pointed out that it is still 50 minutes the host insisted, so we left and are eating at a much better place nearby.We will not come again.

Very nice Seafood and different meat based dishes. We had a shrimp cocktail as a starter, seafood pasta and smoked salmon in a nice sauce as mains + home-made crema Catalana as desert.Prices are fair and service was outstanding. Can definitely recommend!

This restaurant changed management (from mother to daughter) at the start of this season. Despite this the standard remains high with a few extra choices on the menu. I especially enjoyed their Teriaki Tuna. As someone whose appetite is reducing with age, I like the ‘senior’ portions, same food only smaller.
