Great For Fish

Six of us had lunch here, the restaurant specialises in fish. I had Chiene which is a type of grouper fish, it was beautiful. The sea bream and mixed fish platter were also excellent. If you have children the restaurant has a good children's menu and the food is fresh, no frozen rubbish. We also... read more

We went for early dinner at this restaurant close to the "Green Pond" in the early evening and enjoyed a quiet diner with wonderful fresh fish and attentive wait staff. Despite the busy and hectic eateries at Playa Blanca in the evenings, we have been the only guests! The reason is, that they are overrun during lunch time with tour... More

Strange thing to say I know but he was lovely. We had barracuda, steak, homemade cheesecake and a gofio dessert. All of it was terrific and a reasonable price. Did I mention the waiter?

We visited this restaurant towards the end of our holiday and wished we had found it sooner! Fantastic staff, very welcoming and very helpful when choosing from the menu. Beautiful seafood paella, super fresh baby squid in a lovely light batter, delicious garlic prawns, all amazing. We will definitely be back when we return to Lanzarote next year, well worth... More

We have visited La Lapa many times during Christmas holidays on the island. The staff have always been very helpful and are passionate about the food they are serving. Exactly the type of simple fish dishes which we lack in the UK. Looking forward to returning in the future!

Definitely if you go to Lanzarote this is a MUST GO restaurant. Imagine you can find all this in one place: 1) Excellent music watching the sunset- almost in front of the beach (you can still the ocean from your chair) 2) Extremely nice staff - super friendly that makes you feel at home - you don't want to leave...

We last visited this restaurant 3 years ago and it still serves delicious food. We stopped for lunch and really enjoyed the garlic prawns and local Canarian potatoes. The staff are friendly and welcoming.

I would like to recommend this amazing restaurant and the beginning our expectations weren't to high but at the moment that one of the waiters invited us to go in we don't look back again. He recommended us to order "lapas" as the restaurant's name and fish immediately that what we did.... After few minutes not too much even with... More

Beautiful place, excellent staff and excellent fish! Great value! Would highly recommend to everybody! I personally had the prawns to begin with and then the fried squid, I eat these foods a lot and they were literally the best I'd ever had! I will be returning!!
