If you are on the island you just have to go. The view is just amazing. The cafe is so so. Tip you will see loads of cars parked on the rough ground well before the mirador, drive straight pass to the site itself you will almost certainly be able to park, and it's free!

Take time to visit this very special place on Lanzarote. The drive up is a little scary but well worth the effort. The view from the top is spectacular particularly the steep cliffs below and the great seascapes. The building itself is a masterpiece of design and the restaurant adequate . Admission charges are reasonable also

Missable gift shop and cafe with out of this world views that are the (sole) reason to come here, and well worth it. Don't know how this lookout built into the live rock was able to have been constructed, but so glad it was.

Certainly a stunning view, think it was 4€ approx to get into the restaurant with the outside walkway to see the view but if you don't want to do that you can see from just along the road. We went in and had an ice cream and sat taking it all in. Interesting Cesar Manrique architecture again. Enjoyed it a... More

Tried to visit here on a previous holiday but there was heavy mist and to their credit the attendants stated not worth entering. Returned this time on a bright sunny day and it was certainly worth it. The views across to La Graciosa were spectacular and well worth the 4.50euros entrance fee. A great viewing area carved out of the... More

Very unusual building with an exceptional view of La Graciosa island from the top. Make sure you take your camera

Love the view of the island across which we visit the day before. Good for a drink and the view. Gets you to put the island into perspective

What a view on island La Graciosa. When you decide to visit that attraction pay attention on weather. It can be pretty foggy up there and it can ruin your pictures and visit. So plan your visit of Mirador del Rio on mostly sunny days to get most of it. Enjoy the view.

The views of La Graciosa are amazing and the building blends into the volcanic rocks quite naturally. Try a smoothie as you linger and watch the ferry plough across to the island. Well worth the trip

The views from the café and the viewing points are superb, they take your breath away. It's a bit of a hairy drive but take you're time and it's well worth it. Looking down on La Graciosa is a sight not to be missed. It actually brought a tear to my eye.
