It is great to eat at a local restaurant, where you have to make the effort to find it , but it is worthwhile Fresh fish, which we chose from the platter to have grilled, along with a bottle of Bermejo, easiest the best local wine Service was friendly yet professional We will be going again

We only stopped for a coffee but after seeing some of the food come out decided to stay for lunch. I gad the grilled calamari which I can honestly say is the best I've tasted. My husband had grilled corvina fillet which was excellent. We had starters which although delicious left us very full at the end of the meal.... More

The beer was nice and cold. The tapas delicious. Main fish and seafood dishes looked wonderful. All very relaxed and children enjoyed it greatly.

Very relaxing place to eat with delicious seafood, particularly the octopus. More expensive than others though.

We found this restaurant by chance and we're not disappointed. Fresh fish, beautifully cooked, right on the sea front. No wonder it was full of locals.

This is the second time I have visited this restaurant and I wasn't disappointed. It was somewhat quieter, this time, but did not spoil the experience. They were still doing the seafood platter for 2 so I was a happy bunny. Presentation, service etc. all 5* - if you are hiring a car whilst on Lanzarote - and you enjoy... More

We found this restaurant by complete chance... we were exploring the northern tip of Lanzarote and came across a small village which seemed completely unspoilt... we parked and started to walk. The restaurant is situated right on the quay with uninterrupted views of the mountains and sea. Seating is both outside [on the quay] and inside if it is too... More

Superb location (on the quayside) with both an outdoor seating area (shaded) and an indoor section. Good range of fresh fish on the menu. I particularly enjoyed the seafood salad - well presented and served. Good to see so many locals eating here - I think we were the only tourists at the restaurant. Staff were very responsive and attentive.... More

It is a very good restaurant with friendly and happy people with nice singing coming from the kitchen. The food was all fresh and homemade, from starter to dessert. All very nice and tasty. Nice location. Giving the option to enjoy a non-touristy and local dining experience. Personally would prefer it over El Almanecer (other local restaurant, usually highty recommended)... More
