Spain’s beautiful island Gran Canaria can be hit or miss when it comes to dining out. Many of the restaurants in the tourist areas know full well that those that are here today will not be around tomorrow and lower their standards accordingly.

Not so at the two restaurants inside the luxurious  Seaside Palm Beach Hotel palm-beach.com  where you can expect continually excellent food, service and ambience.

Trattoria provides diners with a seductive interior which is perfect for enjoying relaxed Italian meals. At night the soft lighting, coral-hued tablecloths and dark wood chairs create a mood which can easily inspire romance.

Diners are encouraged to begin with a selection of traditional Italian antipasti from the buffet. The tempting assortment looks beautiful, and Chef Daniel De Angelo gets full points for presentation as well as flavour.

Try ravioli filled with osso buco, gently fried zucchini slivers dressed with extra virgin olive oil or perhaps a selection of Parma ham and salami. The offerings change every two days so there is good reason to return.

Mains chosen from the á la carte menu are equally delicious. Don’t miss the juicy rabbit legs cooked with honey and pine nuts and served with grilled polenta. Fresh, locally-caught fish is cooked simply and served with perfectly cooked greens.

Just metres away is Seaside Palm Beach Hotel’s fine dining restaurant, an absolute ‘must try’ while on the island. Orangerie is a gourmand’s paradise and the perfect place to impress a guest. Candlelight illuminates the stylish interior dotted with potted palms and elegant furniture. Tables are well spaced to afford privacy, while the service is highly attentive but discrete.

The inspired menu is infused with the best of French haute cuisine. Settle back and enjoy perfectly prepared lobster, foie gras or duck à l’orange accompanied by some of the world’s finest vintages from the extensive cellar.
