We stayed in a villa in Puerto Calero in Lanzarote last week and my husband researched the local restaurants beforehand. We celebrate our wedding anniversary on 25th Aug and his birthday on 26th Aug so we always take this week as holiday and go out to eat for those two occasions. We had reserved... read more

Service is outstanding, the ambient is very good. The food is sophisticated and tasty, very well prepared and with natural ingredients from Lanzarote.

This restaurant is worthy of a Michelin star. The very moderately priced (€45) tasting menu is really delicious. The chef did not for nothing win the Heineken 2014 price of best chef of the Canaries! The menu had a lot of great dishes but with the desert "Deep Blue" (Azul Marino) the chef really outdid himself! It was not only... More

Tried this restaurant after reading reviews on trip advisor! Couple of mins in taxi from Puerto del carmen.Nice small dining room with glass panoramic views. The room was cold because of time of year I suppose. The food is aiming to be fine dining but in my opinion was not very tasty or imaginative.Service also left a lot to be... More

Hotel Guest services mentioned this restaurant to me as one of the best in The Canary Islands and they weren't wrong. I would even go so far as to say it is as good or better than some Michelin starred restaurants I have eaten in. The restaurant is at the side of the main road, not far from Puerto Del... More

Fabulous food from a creative and imaginative menu. The passion for creating cullinary delight was evident in every course, and the service was both attentive and impeccable. Without doubt the best place we have eaten in any of the canary islands.

We were just exiting the airport in Lanzarote and found this gemme. Stop with the family for a late lunch. The staff were just so kind, great attention. The place eas really nicely set up and very comfortable. The food was imaginative, even if some were maybe a little bit pretentious ( like the fake green peas). Overall very tasty.... More

When we first went to this restaurant several years ago I would have given it a clean 5 stars. However we have been there many times since and each time it was a little worse. Service is getting slower. The food is still very good, however the menu has not changed in all the years we have known the place... More

We hoped we were in for a gastronomic treat,but what a disaster.Firstly the maitre d'h gave a lengthy speech about the ethos of the restaurant and the philosophy of the chef regarding respect for seasonality,working to preserve the integrity of the island blah blah!! It was really quite demeaning and unnecessary. The service was very slow.We waited one and a... More

This is a really innovative restaurant which produces quite stunning dishes and wines that are local and of the best quality. It has recently been nominated as the best restaurant in the Canaries and I think the chef is well on the way for a Michelin star The ambiance is one of relaxed efficiency with stunning views.
