Restaurant El Arrosar has the best paella I’ve tried in Las Palmas.

El Arrosar. As Noel said, for the price it’s the best I’ve found. I prefer arroz negro to traditional paella; they do both very well.

El Arrosar beats La Quilla and El Típico Español. But everybody has their own preferences.

El Típico Español

El Típico Español is a restaurant situated along the lively Las Canteras promenade with varying opinions from diners. Positive feedback highlights the delicious fish paella and fresh seafood. However, some visitors were disappointed with delays in service, less attentive staff, and dishes that didn’t meet expectations. While the restaurant offers a fabulous beach view, some find the prices relatively high for the quality of the food, leading to mixed reviews. While it may be a suitable spot for a drink or light snack, opinions about the overall dining experience and authenticity of Spanish cuisine differ among guests.

I had a nice paella at El Típico Español.

The restaurant El Típico Español has good paella.
Frank | 05-11-2022

Yesterday I went to El Típico Español, which had really good paella.
Max | 31-01-2022

I recently tried the Paella at El Típico Español, and it was quite good (much better than La Quilla, which I personally can’t recommend any longer).

But if you want to have a very good paella, go to Restaurante Las Salinas in Castillo del Romeral after a day in the South.

Other Community Recommendations For Paella

This place is the best for me for paella: Taberna Chica on Playa De Las Canteras.
Marcos | 15-07-2023

 I had vegan paella in Madre Del Amor Hermoso in Las Canteras, it wasn’t bad. Also, in Biocrepería RiscoCaido they sell vegan paella, but it’s in Artenara, and it’s closed until October. And lastly, Vegetopia has vegan paella, but I haven’t tried it. 
Sonia | 20-06-2023

I do not consider myself a paella expert, but Las Canteras Family Restaurant was very tasty and also the Google reviews mention that the paella is very solid.
Jelle | 16-11-2022

What about Ñoño El Chico? It’s on the paseo, super tasty and cheap tapas! They have a delicious paella on Sunday.
Rita | 13-11-2022

I tried Marea near Avenida Maritima and it was good. A bit expensive in my opinion.
Manu | 07-11-2022

 A local here! La Lonja & La Marinera (a bit more expensive) are very good! Enjoy!
