Best Breakfast in Puerto Del Carmen

We visited the purple turtle for many a cooked breakfast whilst staying in Puerto Del Carmen for nearly 3 weeks in September 2014! Great range of veggie brekkies as well for non meat eaters! Food was always hot and you could taste that it was freshly cooked! We also visited for a couple of evening... read more

We popped in here on our first morning for a full English Breakfast.... It was lovely, freshly cooked, exactly what we needed. The view was stunning. Staff were friendly and helpful, gave us a few ideas what to do, places to visit as it was our first time to Lanzarote. Couldn't fault a thing. Definitely recommend and will be back.

We visited The Purple Turtle one morning for breakfast. The food was nice and hot and well cooked. The teas and coffee's were also hot. The breakfast consisted of English bacon, sausages, eggs, beans, black pudding and toast . The staff were friendly and said they remembered us from previous visits in past holidays. I would eat there again but... More

If your looking for a pub in Lanzarote with a feel of cheap and nasty this will do. It's basically a sports pub with cheap beer and average food. Big screen TVs playing live football. They cater for families and that brings it's own drawbacks if you haven't got kids with you.
