Please note that this list for the best restaurants in the Canary Islands is limited to Maspalomas, Gran Canaria. I highly recommend you visit this area if possible.
One of the Best & Most Unique Restaurants
Located in Maspalomas in Playa de Ingles, I went here almost every day during my stay. I believe that the Tipsy Hammock is one of the best restaurants in the Canary Islands. The environment is lively, outdoors, and fun. It is slightly more expensive than the other places but worth it for the food and amazing drinks. They have a typical English/American fare of burgers, sandwiches, and pizzas. Make sure you check their schedule routinely for live music and other performances. Get a few of the large drinks and spend a couple of hours relaxing here.
A small, German gay bar along Playa de Maspalomas, this place is perfect for a small meal while on this side of the desert. The staff is very friendly and has a great pub environment with amazing currywurst. Teat yourself to one of their pitchers of sangria to brighten up your day. While I was here during the day, I heard that they have a great scene for nightlife here as well.
A Spanish Tapas restaurant near Playa de Ingles, Mana 264 offers many delicious small plates in the comfort of Yumbo Centrum, a shopping center in Maspalomas. I suggest getting a few drinks in the area before, getting dinner here, then going back to the bars that you were at earlier in the night. All of their food was delicious and service impeccable, especially compared to other restaurants in the area which scream tourist trap.
