Good menu to choose from, great portion sizes with a choice of baked potatoes, canarian potatoes or chips. Meals also served with nice fresh green vegetables. The waiting staff very friendly...

Lovely food at below the average price then what you will pay in the Yumbo. Lovely T-Bone steak for 21 euros and cooked on a charcoal grill to perfection. Well worth a visit

In an attempt to find a non touristic restaurant in a very touristic area, we found El Carreton. It was quite crowded at the time, with people that seemed mostly Spanish. To me that was a good sign already. The bottle of wine we ordered was opened in a very unique way by our waiter, one which I hadn't seen... More

This is first of all a steakhouse, but has many other choices on the menu too. You are warm welcomed, and if the restaurant is full, they offer you a drink on the house if you wait at a table outside. We visited the place twice, and tried both their big Galicien cotelete and fish, and the food was very... More

We have been going here for quite a few years......changes this year with new owners. Our waiter was excellent and spoke very good English. We always try and speak Spanish . A little disappointed in our fried gambas with garlic as they were very small. Our pizza ,on the other hand, was excellent. Well cooked and very large!!!

Went to the restaurant with kids at the ages of 9, 10 and 14 and two adults and we where all pleased with the food and service we got. I had meat and chicken from the grill and it was tender and full of taste. I highly recommend this restaurant if you traveling to the south of Gran Canaria.
