We dined here several times during our week long stay in Lanzarote, this was our favourite place to eat at, out of all the different places we visited. The staff were very friendly and the food was always tasty with good sized portions.

Spent a few lovely afternoons sipping our drinks in the roaring heat last week just before the thunder and lightning. Reasonable prices, didn't have food so can't comment. Would call in again.

This lovely bar is owned and run by an English family. Food tastes great, good place if your missing English food. Sky sports so you can watch football or rugby if you want or you can sit out the front and soak up the sun with a cold beer!!

Breakfast was really tasty and reasonably priced. The staff however were not obliging in the slightest. We asked for a high chair and were left waiting a while (they weren't busy) and my husband moved a chair to another table to make room for when the high chair came. When the waitress did come back she barked at him "... More

Local to our villa stay, we were very pleased to have found the Purple Turtle. Emma and colleagues were really friendly and the food was great - try the 'zinger burger!'.

Breakfast was ok but extras wasn't stated clearly. Staff quite abrupt when asked to explain bill. Just down hill from Hotel and near Hypo Dino Supermarket.
