It is my 13th visit to Lanzarote, I selected new and great looking restaurants at the beach promenade in the past, some of them were quite good. Some of them rather not to recommend and unfruitful. Bar Playa has since years the same great level of service and the same high quality standard of food. Not easy to find and... More

Nice bar overlooking the sea, some times crowded with divers from the business next door. Tapas are very nice and tasty, lovely "papas arrugadas con mojo" (canarian potatoes with sauces) and puntillas de calamar (fried squid). Also nice for an evening meal, less busy then, with a very good selection of fishes. Portions are big, and they always put the... More

Bar Playa is beautifully set overlooking the sea and the mountains. We found this little restaurant around eighteen years ago and spend most lunchtimes there when we stay in Puerto del Carmen. Lunchtimes can be very busy, especially weekends when the locals also use it. The food is excellent and the service very efficient. Most of the staff speak good... More

What a brilliant way to have lunch between dives or after dive drink. Fabulouse location with a view of the mountains and other islands.

This little bar is on the jetty at the west end of the old harbour, a lovely setting with stunning views across to Papaguya and Fuerteventura but Oh My God! The food is truly awful! I had a scallop of veal which looked and tasted like it had been run over by a lorry even down to the tyre tracks... More

If you find youeslf in Puerto Del Carmen you must visit Bar PLaya on PLaya Chica. The views across the Atlantic to the hills are amazing. The seafood is excellent the salads are fresh and very tasty and the prices are extremely reasonable. You cant beat a portion of sardines and a nice cold beer here.
