I got invited to join to friends who one had aleready been here once last year. He called and we were happy to get a table at 20h30. Situated on the 1.floor it felt like coming to another "world" - and it felt good! Had a drink outside before starting to have a look at the menu. Trust the waiters... More

Friends and I have visited this restaurant many times. It is easily the best restaurant in the Maspalomas area. Always a pleasure to visit and a highlight of our holidays. Food is consistently excellent and portions are deliberately large and you are advised by the staff that it is a sharing experience. A different and enjoyable experience. Juan (the owner)... More

If you want a time out on the lower end restaurants around Jumbo head for meloneras. The concept of big plates forces you to share otherwise you will not make it to the end. Great starter was the Tuna carpaccio and the the crepes as desert. All the main dished we had were well prepared, tasty on beautifull individually decorated... More

We went to this restaurant recommended by friends, special because a mixture of asian and european food, excellent quality, service was ok, but the prices shown were not the reality, vat charged on top and when I paid cash the change did never come back, which is not ok. We'll go back to test again.

We had heard that Samsara was a fantastic restaurant, so one Sunday night around 8 pm we decided to try it out. The interior was beautiful and on the roof was a big golden Buddha. We were humbly greeted, but were told that we needed to do a reservation, even though 90% of the tables were empty! We booked a... More

Had dinner here and from start to finish, is a whole new dining experience. The entrance to the restaurant takes you through to a different land of Buddhas, artifacts and symbols from the Far East. If on your first visit, you are encouraged to share a starter and a main course as the servings are large, but incredibly tasty. The... More

Unlike most restaurants in Gran Canaria, Samsara looks and feels cosy: their outdoor lounge is a crazy mixture of patios, couches, beds, trees, plants, chandeliers... and their indoor is filled with kitsch artwork, religious statues and esoteric decorations. Service is attentive but not intrusive and they do recommend to share the food and order less than you'd normally do. Food... More

Having read about this place on Trip Advisor we had high expectations to our visit to this restaurant, and if not exceeded they were certainly met. After a friendly welcome we were shown to our table. Instead of gazing into each othes eyes, we couldn't help looking around us as the place is SO full of exciting and beautiful things/objects....

We happened upon this restaurant in mid December and we were surprised to find that it was fully booked. Luckily while we were chatting with the owner and studying the menu a couple finished their meal earlier than expected and after a short wait we secured a table.
