We have just had 2 weeks on Gran Canaria in a villa and just around the corner we found a take-away which was a thousand miles from the likes of McDs, KFC and even Chinese.

They had about 20 cooked dishes(if rice and potatoes were included), beef, chicken, fish, salads, pasta dishes etc. which were varied every day. The ingredients were really good - Basia will not eat supermarket 'pumped-up' chicken, but having tasted their really fresh chicken she was up for more. All the dishes we had - about 14 over the 2 weeks - passed Basia's quality test, for freshness and taste. It was all cooked in their kitchen in view and not ready till mid morning and closed at 1500.

The reason I am posting this is to ask Spanish Residents and Visitors whether establishments like this are common in Spain, both mainland and the islands?

Yes. We have quite a few near us that just do take away meals. Some restaurants also have a takeaway service.

The place I am referring to is dedicated to selling cooked food, not tapas and not part of another shop. It is just the sort of food that one would expect to be served at a restaurant - King Prawns were great.

I went there at 0930 and there was then no food on display, but I could see the chefs working in the kitchen behind the sales area.

The company website is -

buen provecho!

Comida a Llevar..A good find Geoff....like jumartoo said they do exist throughout Spain, some good some not so....but generally good value for money....I believe this service became even more popular during Covid times....
One restaurant that provides a good quality lunchtime menu near here will sell off the blackboard, each part of a 3 course menu...
Glad you enjoyed your time in Spain...

Thanks for that info.

Not our first time in Canaries - we have had two holidays on La Palma and one on La Gomera, over the last 6 years.

I have also spent time on Mallorca, Ibiza and coast between Alicante and Javea when I was looking for a boat in the late '80s.

Out of interest I priced a ferry from Cadiz to Gran Canaria and was a bit shocked at the price for a 7m MH and two person cabin at €1,300. But it is a 48 hour crossing. I think that if I lived there I would feel a bit cut off from Mainland Europe.

I assume that 75% discount is for Canaries Residents. Is it for trips to mainland and between islands? Is it only for people or also vehicles, including MHs?
