Well worth the drive and €4.50 entrance fee. The views are stunning, in all directions. We didn't have anything to eat or drink in the cafe, but you can still look at the view through the floor to ceiling windows, then go through the back to the outside area and different viewing levels. Not to be missed. The colours are... More

Well worth a visit for the exceptional and breath taking scenery. Have made two visits here and a holiday in Lanzerote is not complete without making the journey to Mirador del Rio.

We had heard of this place but never visited it on previous trips to Lanzarote. You have to travel to the northern tip of the island on an organised trip or by car/taxi. There is a small admission charge to what is a view point/cafe/shop built into the top of a 1,500ft cliff by Cesar Manrique. The view over to... More

We drove from Puerto del Carmen in our hire car, a brilliant drive across the island taking in plenty of sights and some slightly narrow hill side roads that made you glad you were not on a coach! I had heard a lot about this attraction and the stunning views it offered, however as we got closer the mist that... More

To only think how this was achieved. A simple yet remarkable construction on the peak of a mountain. Of course the view is astonishing but also the building itself is worthy of contemplation. Waiting for the clouds to clear was a zen moment worth the entry fee. Yes, it's also just a cafe... but how, but why, but with such... More

Well worth a trip up to the north of the island to see this wonderful structure. The view from the panoramic window in the building is breath taking. Its a César Manrique masterpiece of design and remains a classic. Before pulling off the main road to the development, try the little restaurant on the right hand side at the crossroad... More

We have been here twice, from the top of this you can see for miles. We took plenty of water and snacks . It is cooler as there is an amazing breeze but don't forget the sun cream.

Unlike other reviewers I thought it well worth the drive and €4.50 entry…assuming the day isn’t too cloudy (low cloud and mist will limit visibility which defeats the object of visiting - when first in the area we turned away because of this and returned later in our holiday on a clearer day). This attraction can be added into a... More

Throughout Lanzarote it is very impressive how through the influence of Cesar Manrique the volcano and superb views have been linked together to form a unique visiting experience. We worth a visit for the views alone
