Always find Cervantes a good choice for a value meal and good service, we have eaten there now many times and never fails to provide a good well priced meal. Being set in the main street i find it better value than the similar type restaurants on the sea front.

Had paella here last night. Would be a fussy eater and have found some of the restaurants lacking flavour. Not here paella was so tasty, fresh and between us we finished the lot. Good wine with a bill of 30 euros. Totally recommend.

Visited while on holiday with my 2 kids after a recommendation from family. Fantastic food and service. Like the fact you could see food being cooked. Guitar player added to the relaxed atmosphere.

We have just come back from what I can only describe as an ok holiday to Lanzarote. Although we were all inclusive we were forced to eat out several nights. Walking down from the hotel we spotted a restaurant and just thought well why not. Wow, what a dream place to find. Garlic mushrooms for me and prawns in garlic... More

4 of us visited 2 having paella and 2 having sirloin steak. There appeared to be 2 working the chap manning the grill and a female waitress and I think they struggled. The wait was around 30-40 mins (for the paella) the steaks arrived as blue/very rare after we requested two mediums. So they were sent back, a short while... More

We were recommended to this restaurant and were not disappointed. Steak Diana is superb.and cooked exactly as you asked for them. We also had their paella and that was really good too. When we came to pay the bill we received free brandy. A really nice touch.

We visited this restaurant twice during our holiday, on both occasions the meals as always were excellent in quality and value for money. We have slowly worked our way through their menu and have yet to be disappointed with a meal or the service. We make a point of eating here on our last day before we leave and will... More

(I don't eat red meat) but husband loves steaks here....you see them bring cooked on the open grill....really tender he says. I've also had the paella which was lovely. Really different starter of squid, prawn and pepper....not served in usual hot oil...but in a lovely delicate source...beautiful restaurant and great service
