Tagoror: "Restaurant in a cave" Isla de Gran Canaria Restaurant Tip by YPie

Isla de Gran Canaria Restaurants: 37 reviews and 47 photos

Go right up to the end of the Barranco de Guayadeque (take the road from Aguimes) to this place. It doesn't look too much from outside, but once you go in you are in a cave with a bar. There are tunnels going off, follow them and see where you lead. Some of them open up into dining areas (seats carved from the wall of the cave, stone tables), there is a little shop round the back, and far more than you would imagine form the front. I was lucky in a way to visit when it was raining, it forced us inside instead of sitting on the terrace and missing out on what was inside.

The food's good too!

Edited 311204 to say that I went back on 26 December 04 and the food's just as good as I remembered. If you go up on Sunday's they do special dishes like a fish stew and ropa vieja, and a lot of the people there are locals which shows that it's not just a tourist trap! Our meal for three (three courses including wine) came to just under 40 Euros from memory, and was absolutely huge!

This is without a doubt my favourite place to eat in Gran Canaria,.

Address: Barranco de Guayadeque
Price Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: Take the road up the Barranco from Aguimes, just before it runs out it heads fairly steeply uphill and you'll see the entrance to the car park on the right on a bed.
