From the moment we walked in to the restaurant, both my husband and I wowed by the restaurant design which is modern and contemporary. All but a couple of tables were taken and it was a lovely atmosphere. From our table we could see the kitchen and it was fascinating to watch the chef at work. The food was absolutely... More

I have considered this reviews content for several days. We visited on Wednesday 6th Jan and I am writing this review on Saturday 9th. I have visited this restaurant on two previous occasions so thought enough of it to revisit. I last visited on Jan 2015. The menu stands out as very different from most playa blanca restaurants. The physical... More

Cocina de Colacho is an outstanding restaurant in Playa Blanca. There are some very good Spanish restaurants in the town, but this is a very inventive, highly skilled, beautifully presented cuisine. The food is incredibly fresh, well sourced and so tasty. The service led by the delightful Anabel, Colacho's wife, is friendly and very attentive. It was full of very... More

This restaurant fully justifies it's rave reviews. We were fortunate enough to eat here twice during our recent holiday. Colacho's' food is superb and beautifully presented. The King Prawns with Cava was the best king prawn meal I have eaten, and I've eaten a lot. Anabel's friendly and highly professional manner is the 'icing on the cake'. The wine she... More

You cannot really expect this top restaurant in Lanzarote, this is really something! Same restaurant in London or Madrid would be 2 or 3x the price… Colacho is really a great cook and his combination of great quality ingredients and his cooking technique makes it exceptional. I do pay a visit to his restaurant every time I come to Playa... More

My wife and I visited last night with our 5yo who very kindly dropped off to sleep within 10 mins having eaten earlier in the evening. Anabel offered us two tables, one of them tucked away like our own private dining which was perfect for our son in his pushchair to sleep. The previous reviews say it all, this restaurant... More

If there's a better restaurant in Playa Blanca I've yet to find it. Anabel makes you so welcome it's like visiting old friends. Although the menu isn't vast there's something for everyone and the quality of the food is second to none. It's located at the back of Marina Rubicon on the road from the town and is easily missed...

I was blown away recently by the evening spent at this restaurant. Not only was the food served delicious but the service that we received was probably up there with the best. I would recommend La Cocina de Colacho to all. Thanks for a lovely evening
