Super restaurants - excellent food, great views and very friendly staff. Fish is to die for and so is the Chateaubriand. My favourite restaurant on Playa Blanca - can't wait to go back there later in the year.

It just seems to get better every time we visit this superb restaurant. The owners, Jose and Roman, are always so welcoming, it is like coming home to eat. Every attention is given to your comfort, and the preparation of the meal. Our favourite is the sea bass in cava, flambe'd at your table. The fish is cooked to perfection,... More

We had a nice meal - sea bass in salt - and decor nice with only drawback being very close tables. Service was good and reasonably priced. If you can get booked in early and choose a sea view this could give you a bit more space.

Visited upon reviews and recommendations. We hadn't booked a table but they did say they could just fit us in although it was early and there were only two other tables eating and both were already on main courses. The service was very slow, our flambé steak was well done and we asked for medium. No one came to enquire... More

Saw this restaurant from the seafront on a walk. Reserved a window table for the last night of our holiday. So glad we did, the best meal we had on holiday. Food was anaxing. Service fantastic, and all this in a beautiful setting. Value for money too. If you are in playa blanca book a table here

Food and location was good but our bill was €56 so we gave €60 and waited for 10 minutes for change so we could add to the tip but it never arrived. I hate that, so instead of maybe €10 tip they only got €4. Very presumptuous. Slow to return.

This was our 1st evening in Playa Blanca and La Chalanita set the bar high. Staff were friendly, views from the 1st floor are stunning and the food was excellent. We had the flambe fillet steak for main and it was cooked perfectly and the sauce delicious. Wished we had not had starters as this meant we couldn't finish all... More

Attentive staff, good food. It pays to book here as all the window seats get booked up. Although it says there is air conditioning it doesn't appear to work and it gets terribly hot. Popular restaurant.

Just back from a wonderful vacation in Lanzarote. If visiting the island and staying in the beautiful Playa Blanca do not miss out on a visit to this restaurant. This place is so popular you will be well advised to make a reservation. The restaurant is just off the main pedestrian street but can be accessed from the front promenade.... More
