Where to eat in northern Gran Canaria

Where to eat in northern Gran Canaria, La Aldea, Agaete and Las Palmas.

My favourite 5 places to eat real local food in northern Gran Canaria.

1. El Chozo – La Aldea

If you are looking for a place where locals go to eat, this is your place in La Aldea. Seasonal tomatoes grown in La Aldea, fresh fish, delicious homemade desserts, simply perfect. Ask for the daily local dishes and fresh fish.

Must try:

  • Ask for the fresh fish. They have different options every day. I had a great grilled sama fish. The grilled fish comes with papas arrugas (potatoes) and delicious salad (the avocado was the best I had in years).
  • Tomato salad. Did I mention that it is tomato season all year round in La Aldea? A must if you are a tomato lover.
  • Desserts are all homemade! I had a delicious bisquit cheesecake, heavenly.

Lunch for 2 including beer, water, bread, and coffee = 36 euros

Location: Paseo del Charco, 35479 Los Caserones La Aldea de San Nicolás, España

2. Restaurante Dedo de Dios – Agaete

Great views, fresh fish, local food, just the perfect place to eat near the sea.

Must try:

  • Always as for the fresh fish. Try the mixed grilled fish, delicious.
  • Fried octopus with vegetables. Tender octopus deep fried with paprika, so so good. I did not like the fried vegetables but the octopus was delicious.

Location: Ctra. al Puerto de las Nieves, 0, 35489 Puerto de las Nieves, Las Palmas, Spain

3. Terraza Angor – Agaete

The best place to eat fresh fish in Agaete is Angor. When you go to a place and it is full of locals it is always a good sign. I had the best grilled fish at Terraza Angor, a must if you are in Agaete.

Must try:

  • Ask for the fresh fish. They have different options every day. I had a great grilled sama fish, perfectly cooked and soft as butter. It is a dish to share and it comes with potatoes and grilled vegetables.

Lunch for 2 including beers (3), water, bread, starter, dessert and coffee = 42 euros

Location: Av. de los Poetas, 2, 35480 Agaete, Las Palmas, Spain

4. La Hormiguita Golosa- Agaete

Lovely ladies that run a coffee place in the old town. Go there to have some churros with chocolate, so so good.

Must try:

  • Churros con chocolate. Crispy and not greasy.

Breakfast for 2: 2 coffees with milk and 8 churros = 4,8 euros

Location: C. Concepción, 20, 35480 Agaete, Las Palmas, Spain

4. Bodega Los Berrazales

Not really a place to eat but a place to visit and have some delicious wine and coffee tasting. Bodega Los Berrazales is a small family-run winery surrounded by mountains and orange trees. I visited in March and orange trees were blossoming so the smell in the entire area was just amazing.

They give you a little tour to explain to you how they grow the coffee beans, make the wine… Then you can enjoy some wine tasting of 3-4 different wines with some local cheese, homemade jam, bread, chorizo, pound cake and delicious coffee. All that for 10 euros.

It is a family-run winery and they make you feel at home. I truly recommend this place.

Must try:

  • All their wines.
  • The homemade apple and coffee jam, loved it.
  • The COFFEE.

They also have a restaurant close to the winery, Casa Romántica Agaete. I did not have time to go there, next time but I am it is a must. Local food, seasonal products and really special dishes. A must for a special dinner.

Location winery: Paseo del Charco, 35479 Los Caserones La Aldea de San Nicolás, España

Location Casa Romantica restaurant: Km 3,5, 35480 Agaete, Las Palmas, Spain

5. Mr. Kale – Las Palmas

A popular place to have brunch in Las Palmas which is worth trying. I was a little bit hesitant to try this popular place as I am not into pretty food if it is not delicious. Must be delicious and then it can be pretty. Now I can say I was gladly surprised. The place is really cute, they have a large menu and the food we had was simply delicious.

Must try:

  • I had the special brunch, 2 pankes with cajun chicken, sauce, avocado, banana and poached eggs. A heavenly combination of sweet and savory ingredients. For sure a combination I will try at home.

No pictures as I was hungry 🙂 Check their Instagram for some photos.
