Great food and service, the fish pool inside the restaurant winding through the tables is stocked with big fish, you'll love it. A very short walk to the beach.

Stopped here whilst on the way to Mirador del rio and was blown away by the Mixed Fish and Seafood platter. Unbelievable quality and value at €35 for 2 people. If you are in the area make you a pay it a visit.

Stopped for a drink, however seeing the tempting meals we ordered lunch! The freshest of fish simply grilled with salad and views of the surfers coming to shore - what more could you wish for? Efficient service and the restaurant was very busy. Well worth finding.

I went there with my family for dinner and everything was perfect! The food was delicious, they have great marinated tuna. The waiter was super nice. And THE VIEW.... beautiful :) The only bad thing is that the restaurant is hard to reach, it's far away from all the big cities. But it's totally worth the effort of getting there!

El Lago became our home restaurant to rely on. We started going for the wifi and drinks, but soon discovered the amazing staff and the best Queso asado on the island! Our fantastic server Anas, started to know exactly what we wanted every time we came in. Anas made us feel at home and welcomed! El Lago is perfectly located... More

Over three years since our last visit to this pleasant restaurant and the view, service and food are still very good. A warm welcome from the owner and fresh Canarian food to follow, fish is a must here accompanied by salad and potatoes and a view to die for, plus a cute little pregnant cat (shush don't tell Angel), that...

Nice little restaurant, what it lacks in atmosphere (with it being a small town) it makes up for food and service. Sirloin steak spot on, rare and cooked to perfection. Aras the waiter treated us to shots after our meal. Topped a great night. Recommend.

Best seafood we've had on lanzarote so far! Food really tasty and all piping hot! Baby green peppers and the seafood paella are good choices. Don't miss out on this lovely little restaurant with great views of the sea!
