You should take into consideration that the park is large and it is a lot to walk around, so you should get here in the morning if you want to see everything it has to offer.
The park has 3 restaurants available, with plenty of space and tables for the visitors.
We chose to eat at El Patio Majorero, the restaurant situated close to the Birds of prey show. The food arrived quickly and we tried the goat meat, hamburgers and also tortilla. It was a fine meal, good quality food for a restaurant situated in a zoo park. It was nice to take a break from all the walking and rest for a few moments.
