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!!

Lovely meal with razor clams, a fish platter and paella between us. All very good and served with excellent local white wine with friendly welcoming service.

Feeling a bit peckish so popped in for a drink. Decided to try some tapas whilst there. The portions are good and the service was attentive and polite. Great Canadian potatoes and garlic prawns. We were very pleased on taking a chance on this place - pop in after visiting the sites !

We stayed at the hotelito next door for 10 days so might have visited frequently. However, we tried on our first evening, about 7.30 pm, and there seemed to be a couple of people at one table, but as soon as someone also sitting at the back saw us approaching he jumped up and turned out most of the lights....

I found this place after a hectic search for a good restaurant in El Golfo. There are quite a few to choose from... Keeping it simple, they have great quality food, nice portions and very welcoming customer service. A well recommended place to satisfy your Canarian appetite.

After a week of food frustration I found fish heaven in El golfo. When entering the village stop at the first restaurant on the right and venture no further. The starters of squid and prawn were divine. The mains, including a four fish platter, were even better. We were catered for individually throughout and that made us feel more than... More

Freshly caught fish - perfectly cooked and served with a smile - overlooking the sea with the sun overhead - what could be better. The village of El Golfo is noted for its fish restaurants but what makes La Lapa stand out for us are the people. Everyone seems to be having fun whilst enjoying their meal -you never feel... More

Excellent restaurant serving tapas and fresh fish. Second visit and third planned in June. Very relaxing , tranquil lunch watching people walk to other restaurants down by the sea- fools for not going to la lapa! Advice on which fish to have. Complimentary chickpea fish was gorgeous. Came away as I did last time with the list of fish I... More

If you visit Lanzarote this is a restaurant not to be missed. It's the first on the right as you enter El Golfo - go no further and you won't be disappointed. The atmosphere is so relaxing that you could stay for hours. The food is very fresh and excellent. During a couple of recent visits with friends we had... More
