“La Ruta del Pincho” in Vegueta

“La Ruta del Pincho'' is a gastronomic trail that takes place every Thursday from 7pm in the historic district of Vegueta in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. A day with a great atmosphere in the area, making it a worthwhile visit. Below we highlight 4 tapas restaurants in Gran Canaria where you can try these tasty “pinchos” (small snack) with a drink from 2 Euros.

El Vasco de Vegueta

This restaurant specialises in tapas and pinchos. They also offer traditional Basque food and spoon dishes, such as Merluza a la koxkera, a hake dish accompanied by a green sauce and clams. The rations are generous and well priced.

La Barbería Restaurant

This restaurant is also a good option for nights in Vegueta. It's called this way because in its time it was a very busy barbershop in this historical neighborhood (La Barbería = The Barbershop). Nowadays, you can taste both a la carte dinners as well as sophisticated pinchos, making it one of the best places to enjoy tapas and wine in Las Palmas.
