The 3 best restaurants in Las Canteras picked by locals

1. Las Canteras Restaurants: For a seafood and fish feast head to La Marinera

Located in an charming location at the end of the beach the restaurant is an institution in the island.

Their menu is largely based on the fresh catch of the day, the nicest seafood and classic local tapas.

Their food focuses on the quality of the product over the presentation. Some of our favorite specialties include clams, calamari, the tuna tartar and their fish croquettes.

The meats are also surprisingly good. However we do not recommend to have paellas here.

They have a menu with classic tapas like calamari, garlic prawns, fried fish and so on. They do halves or full tapas so you will get to try many different ones.

Prices are amazingly cheap and it is a great spot to stop by after a morning in the beach to experience the full local life.

4. Other places in the beach we love:

  • La Bikina. A sweet place for a cocktail and a bite. Their tuna tartar is fresh and nice and their nasi gorrein pretty good too.
  • Heladería Peña la Vieja. Artisan ice creams to take away. Nothing like enjoying an ice cream while strolling around the promenade.
