The good weather in the capital of the Canary Islands invites you to go out and socialise and, by the way, have a beer or two. Discover a charming garden, the most chic atmosphere, the most beautiful views of the city or the perfect place to disconnect. The adventure begins! We’ve convinced you, haven’t we? Are you looking forward to enjoying a refreshing drink on a terrace? Here are the 10 best terraces in Gran Canaria.
1. Mr. Kale Maspalomas
Mr. Kale takes the place of Swing Restaurant and will offer more than 150 dishes in a completely renovated environment, from the interior to the beautiful terrace. Mr. Kale was born in 2016 as the first pokebar in Gran Canaria with the aim of offering a healthy, tasty and enjoyable alternative. To achieve this, ingredients from the garden are mixed with the best meat and fish. Mr. Kale’s cuisine is based on the preparation of his dishes at low temperatures, the absence of fats, the use of embers and vacuum cooking. All of this is focused on reducing unnecessary calories but always maintaining the flavour and fun in each dish.
