Excellent Dining

The service is excellent, food is superb (couldn't actually find any fault and we worked through most of the menu during our stay) and a good range - even for a couple of fussy teenage girls. Highly recommended.

Lovely restaurant. Well worth booking early to get a table with a sea view. The food was delicious in very traditional surroundings. Would recommend fish of the day as you know it is as fresh as can be.

Real spanish meal in the middle of tons of tourists restaurants. We had the pleasure of taking an amazing paella, and a mixed grilled meat, it was really good! the service was excellent compared to the rest of the island, quick and professional. I would really recommend to test this place if you happen to be here, as it is... More

Lovely restaurant with staff that couldn't be more helpful and friendly. We booked a table and were seated at a window overlooking the sea, so we had a lovely view. We had the chateaubriand, which was perfectly cooked rare , as we requested. My daughter had a vegetarian meal, which was rice with pineapple and was a lovely choice rather... More

We have visited this place on a couple of occasions without earlier booking. The food was very nice - tasty paella and a very good wine. Worth recommending. We would go there again. Definitely better than Casa Pedro in Playa Blanca (with prices not matching the quality - a bit of a 'rip off' to be honest). La Chalanita is... More

Our third visit to Lanzarote and once again visited this restaurant. Once again the food was delicious! Once again, the service was good and efficient but could have been friendlier (hence 4 stars) The food here is consistently very good and reliable whereas other restaurants in the resort have been more hit and miss.

Beautiful dinner for two -- very romantic setting, corner table next to the window overlooking the bay and the waves rolling onto the volcanic rocks. Everything we tried was excellent, but my steak was truly fantastic, sauce flavoured with Pedro Ximinez was spectacular. Tried a nice bottle of Lanzarote Cava too, it's right what they say about Cabernet grapes and... More

Visited this restaurant on the first night in Playa Blanca. The service was quick and attentive and the food was spot on. The restaurant and toilet were very clean. Fantastic views from our table out across the sea. Would recommend!

The most enjoyable dining out night in Playa Blanca this year. We booked a window seat 2 days in advance for a Saturday and still only got in time. Very popular restaurant and now I can see why. Premises very unique and well designed with great views. Staff the very best we encountered .Gluten Free options extensive for almost everything.... More

Just got back from a wonderful lunch at La Chalanita. A charming first floor restaurant with stunning sea views of the Playa Blanca bay without all the noise. With the air conditioning on it was sublime. I wasn't expecting much when I slipped for a light bite, but the smoked salamn and advocardo are calling me. Imagine my amazement when... More
