It was a cold and windy market day to which we stumbled across this little gem. The hustle and bustle of the locals and the glorious scent of the food drew us inside. Inside turned out to be lots of windy paths opening up into rooms that were inviting and the food and drink were flowing. There was no room... More

Typical Spanish food and wine.... Fresh, tasty and mouthwatering! Typical Canadian dessert absolutely top of the class! The place itself is decorated nicely and you can see the owners pay attention to details... And the staff is extra friendly!

The boards to share in this place are a pleasure for the eye as well as the stomach, and also very good value. Tapas are of good quality and their home cut fries are amazing. Good choice of wine, good character and friendly staff, this place is definitely worth a stop if you're walking around Teguise and start getting hungry.

Great place - very busy and good atmosphere. Very good service and super menu - lots of really interesting dishes to choose from. Sharing board with local cheeses and meats and gorgeous olives, yummy puds too!

We have been coming to Lanzarote for 10 years and never visited this Tapas Bar. What a mistake. The food here is super. There were 4 of us and we ordered the Deli and Fish platter to share. Both substantial and gorgeous. The Bar itself is full of charm and the staff friendly and courteous. We will definitely be back.

A restaurant which features local dishes and ingredients. Our landlady recommended this restaurant. We went in for dinner and tasted several localities (try the different plates). The service started out fine, but I guess it got a bit to crowded to service everybody correctly with not even all tables occupied. To bad, really, it took some time to clear out... More

We have visited this restaurant twice during our two week stay on Lanzarote. The 'tablas' are really good, they are similar to a English Ploughman's, for two people to share. Last week we had the 'deli' with loads of Spanish cured meats, cheese, quince jelly etc. Today we enjoyed the 'de la mar' with smoked salmon, smoked tuna, mackerel pate,... More

Had four tapas dishes between two which was the equivalent portion wise of eight little traditional Spanish tapas. Couldn't eat another thing so exceptional value for money. Roast leg of pork and white bait especially good with some generous green leaves, most welcome as so many island restaurants don't seem to have heard of accompanying greens or veg. Internally It's...

my wife and I enjoyed our tapas, the food was very tasty and well presented, we did ask for the food not to all arrive at once, however it did come at once, I thought had expected a greater range of tapas, the menu is very much geared up for the tourist, the staff were very busy yet friendly and...
