Welcome to Fataga
About 1.5km north of the village, parts of El Molino del Agua hacienda date back to the 16th century. The historic mill is hidden among a grove of around 1000 palm trees, and also offers accommodation. The restaurant has tables under the orange trees and a reasonable Canarian menu.
Located on the main road in Fataga, Bar Restaurante La Albaricoque is good for tapas and has sound local fare, including croquettes with a range of fillings, ropa vieja and carne de cabra (goat meat stew). The main draw, however, is the outside terrace with its wall-to-wall mountain views.
Bus 18 (€2.65, 50 minutes, four times daily) from Maspalomas to San Bartolomé stops here.
