Went here for flambé steak, based on memory of last year. They are so family orientated. Really good value, melt in your mouth steaks. Home made fries what a nice change. Just as we remembered. Well done Cervantes! A view of the playground and people walking by entertainment in itself and not too far for ice-creams and a stroll by... More

Visited on numerous occasions and they always serve fantastic food. It is with out a doubt the best stroganoff I have ever had. The flambed steaks come exactly as ordered every single time. The starters are generous and the wine list has a great choice. A must try is the Carmelo Rodero red wine always served at the perfect temperature.... More

Decided to try Cervantes due to the reviews read. The steak was tasty and affordable but I would've like the choice of veg or canarian potatoes instead of chips! It seems chips with everything if your british. Next time I will ask for veg in my best broken spanish. The meats being grilled in full view of everyone is a... More

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
