Visited Emmas Cantina last week whilst on holiday. Have eaten there many times over the years. Can't put my finger on it but atmosphere seemed a little lacking from previous times. Food was still good. Don't know if the previous owner is still preparing the food. Unfortunately never been the same since Mike isn't front of house. However it is... More

A regular highlight of our trips to Lanzarote! The food is delicious with a range for spice-addicts and those with cooler tastes. And if you really want to push the boat out, try one of Emma's Margarita's while you are browsing the food list! They didn't invent this wonderful cocktail, but they have perfected it (says so on the menu).

Popped in here on our second evening in Puerto del Carmen, having read good reviews about it here on Tripadvisor and seeing it mentioned in several posts in the forum. Waitress, who if I remember correctly, was from the UK, was very nice, welcoming and helpful. I ordered jalapenos with stuffed cheese for my starter and my boyfriend I think... More

It was early evening when we arrived and there was one other table of diners. We ordered the chicken wings plus a rack of pork ribs combo as a starter to share. The ribs were dry and the sauce wasn't anything special. It lacked in presentation too. The chicken fajita had well cooked chicken, peppers and onions but needed more... More

Was here recently with my fiancée and was expecting good things due to feedback on trip advisor. However, it was simply not great. I always judge a place on the food first and it was nothing better than what u can do at home yourself. In terms of service, not bad, but for crying out load have you heard of... More

Ate here twice this year. Standard still as excellent as usual. Prices higher than the strip but so is the quality. Tried the pork ribs tonight. Delightful. Fell off the bone. Finished off with a chocolate Tequila. What more do you want! Lovely staff too can't wait to be back in October.
