This is a place that I used to visit whenever I was craving great food. Not that expensive, they have a fabulous black rice, grilled octopus and you know that any dish that they serve it's going to be well made. Seafood is great in here, and so it is the iberic ham, potatoe omelette and the gazpacho (when they... More

Based on TA reviews went to El Pote last Thursday which was fairly empty. The choice & quality of the tapas dishes where excellent especially the fish - freshly prepared & individually served (which I prefer) Wine was great value & the service was friendly. How a typical Spanish tapas bar should be?

I ate with family, it was nice. The fish was delicious, as was the soup, although the service was a little slow.

We walked in El Pote unexpectedly and without reservation. The restaurant didn't look much from the outside but the friendliness of the people, the quality of service and the delicious tapas made up brilliantly for that. Simple but very good food. Highly recommended if you fancy tapas.

I wanted an early evening meal in this part of Las Palmas and this was one of the few open at 6:30pm. It was unimpressive to look at - just an ordinary neighbourhood bar. Very friendly, helpful service. I had a superb goat cheese salad which was so generous that I decided it would do for my main course. First-class... More
