When we read the reviews of Emma's we knew that we would have to visit as my wife and I love Mexican food, however, our daughter doesn't. When we visited Valentina's, which is right next door and also very good, I popped in and checked the menu and they had some things on the kids menu my daughter so it... More

Went here on recommendation and had a really good all round experience. Nice welcome, great choice of truly Mexican food on the menu and excellent , attentive and friendly service although when we went, they were a staff member down and busier than usual.

I promised that I would leave a review and so I am. This is easily the best meal I had in PDC by a long long way. I knew that I wanted to try the house speciality Chilli Con Carne and that is exactly what I did after first going for a milder avocado starter. It was an incredible chilli... More

My wife and I were disappointed to hear some reviewers claim that Emma's was not so good as it used to be. We've been coming here regularly for 5 years so had to see for ourselves. We were not disappointed. I can't deny that the place lacks a little of the ambience of old. That may be because some of... More

We hadn't booked....and it was heaving at 8.30 pm....we were told some tables would be available about 9.15, we left our names and went and had a drink in a local bar. We returned as arranged, and sure enough tables were clearing. We were shown to a table and the menu was explained to us. Being a bit of a... More

The last time we visited Puerto del Carmen Emma's was chasing the top spot. It's obvious now that the only reason it's in the top 20 is due to it's past glory days. Lanzarote has a fine choice of restaurants now and if you're holidaying for a week or two, don't waste time here.
