Just near the sea side you can have your meal. They have very delicious tapas with sea food. Service is very fast and very nice workers. We had very big fish and prepared very well. It is a little bit expensive.

Having read the reviews, which are definitely mixed, we were dubious about going to this restaurant. I felt there were things for and against eating here. Against: it is true that it is like a canteen in some ways because they have far too many tables and they are fairly close together. At times it felt like we were on a railway concourse because the waiters were rushing around so much which did not make for a very relaxed atmosphere. Luckily we had a table by the window with a wonderful view of the sea and therefore, only one table by us. For: the service was good so we did not have to wait long. The menu extensive. The Paella which was for 2 people was beautiful and one of the best we have ever had. The portion size was good. The price of both the meal and the wine was reasonable.

Would I eat here again? I am not sure which is a pity. My main reservations are the closeness of the tables and the not very relaxed atmosphere.

We visited Gran Canaria in February and enjoyed the wonderful climate of the island with temperatures up to 28 C.
Sun is only one ingredient of a great holiday. Food plays such a important ingredient in any vacation. La Marinera restaurant is located literally on the water's edge and must be spectacular in the summer as the sun sets on the sea. The food is wonderful. While meat is available fish features on the menu. Being located close to the African coast the choice of fish may not be immediately recognisable to all visitors. Do not be put off..The fish choice is superb. Grouper in salt is succulent and divine. If you like white wine the local Canary Island wines are excellent due to the sulphuric content from the volcanic soil. Don't forget to try Tajinaste..magic!
We will certainly be back. Great vacation destination and with restaurants like La Marinera you cannot go wrong. Enjoy your visit . ,

It was like canteen food.... Not convincing. It was not absolutely bad, but really not good adn especially compared to the other restaurants which we visited on the Canaries not convoncing at all. All other restaurants were much better and cheaper. So, we recommend not to visit this restaurant.

Wonderful location for a fish restaurant. Fresh fish and fresh seafood. The paellan is good but too few clams and shrimps. The price level is slightly higher than equal restaurants at Las Canteras. Noisy on weekends.
