Good food but on the expensive side

This restaurant definitely requires a booking as it only opens 2 days pw and is very popular with the locals. The food and service are very good but it is pretty expensive for Lanzerote and we have had better for less money

This restaurant is a little off the beaten track but make the effort to track it down and you will not be disappointed. The whole dining experience is faultless, excellent food and service in a contemporary building. Only open on Monday and Wednesday evenings so I would recommend booking in advance.

Booked in for the Monday night while we were staying in the marina. Took my daughter and partner who had never visited the restaurant before. The food, as always, was superb and the service matched it all the way. My daughter was so impressed that before she'd even finished the meal she'd booked a table for when she visits the... More

Just can't rate this restaurant highly enough. We had the most amazing meal - not one duff course! Plus the service was great Annabel and her son Ignacio were so welcoming. The building is stylish and even the toilets are like walking through a private art gallery - cool! We've already booked for a second visit and am looking forward... More

This restaurant is only open Monday and Wednesday evenings and is fairly small so make sure that you book. Lovely place that makes a change from tapas. They have a good wine selection reasonably priced. Also there were specials of the day which me and my boyfriend both had. The lovely owner bought us a little taster of prawn and... More

Recently visited this restaurant as a treat for my girlfriend and I whilst on holiday. Despite staying in a local all inclusive hotel the reviews on here really made me want to try this place. Every single course was fantastic including the wine. If the black pig special is on the menu make sure you have it - was incredible.... More

Lovely evening. Annabel was an impeccable hostess and her husband's food was superb. The black pig was polished off by us all - even our 9 year old declared it delicious. My husband said the ice cream (home made) was simply the best he had ever eaten. After a lovely meal we struggled to get a taxi - which we... More

Great service, and had the best garlic prawns, very comfortable and relaxing terrace, it is at the end of the marina, but well worth the short walk

We found this restaurant via Tripadvisor last year and it was so good we went there twice. This year we returned and our welcome by Anabel was warm and friendly, also her son Ignacio has joined her as front of house. As usual the food, service and surroundings were stunning. A fabulous place to go for something different and away... More

This restaurant is simply head and shoulders above any other in Playa Blanca. We had 2 meals on consecutive Wednesdays ( they are only open Monday and Wednesday) and these were far and away the best of our holiday. Annabelle is an amazing host, very welcoming and knowledgeable and her husband a superb cook. Add to that the beautifully designed... More
