Our favourite experience

Whenever we go to Lanzarote we ALWAYS visit our friends at La Lapa, and are guaranteed a warm welcome, good food and wine and a very relaxing experience. Excellent value too

Arrived at lunch time ordered king prawns with canarian potatoes a glass of house wine followed by coffee. Lovely restaurant excellent service with friendly staff. We visited 3 times in 3 weeks so it must have been worth the journey from Playa Blanca. We always visit this restaurant for lunch when in Lanzarote as it is consistently good and has... More

We have been visiting this restaurant, several times a year, for over 10 years, but are still drawn by the excellent service and quality of the food. The Cherney is our favourite amongst the many fish on the menu, but if you get the opportunity, try the 'Fish cooked in the oven' This is not on the menu , but... More

It's not always easy to find light lunches but these were just right for us and after one experience we went out of our way to come back another day. The mussels were the most succulent we'd every experienced, and we also loved the garlic prawns and the garbanzos. Super staff.

Lovely restaurant, friendly staff and and amazing food. We arrived fairly early so loads of tables available and made to feel very welcome as we were with people who had been there previously. Can highly recommend the Garlic Prawns to start, and throw a bit of Mojo sauce in there to give them I nice kick! The Grouper (Cherney) was... More

La Lapa is special: it may not have the very best view in El Golfo or be the fanciest place in town but it serves the very best fish on Lanzarote. The fish is fresh, cooked to perfection and then comes with an explanation of what it is and - if you order the mixed plate - in which order... More

was at this place 4 years ago. Went back for sentimental reasons. The fresh fish was stunning again. Service with a smile. They may not have the seaview, but quality compensated.

Following on from my apocalyptic toilet adventure in my Yaiza review (El Volcan) we ended up in El Golfo reminding ourselves of the touristy bits that needed doing. We ate some sweets/puddings here and the staff were really friendly and approachable. The home made apple pie with cinnamon was delish......... Really recommend the place for its puddings (and view of... More
