Great experience

Dined here on our last night in Lanzarote in a group of 12. We had a table with a beautiful view of the sea. We all had several rounds of drinks, starters each and mains. Staff were very patient, friendly and attentive when taking our orders. As there was so many of us, staff explained that... read more

We enjoyed a very enjoyale fish meal in this Restaurant which is ideally located overlooking the sea. :On entering we were greeted by a very friendly waiter who took great trouble to find suitable seating for us. He then proceeded to explain the menu and the choice of wine that was available. The meal was most satisfactiory and the wines... More

Restaurant was busy but we got a good table towards the back as it was breezy and colder at the front. We had a chicken and beef kebab, tuna in a Canarian sauce and both had a local dessert. No problems with food or service. Good wine list and the usual Canarian rum free with coffee.

When I go to this restaurant I always have a chicken fillet with salad. It's not exciting or even Spanish but it is amazing. I don't know what they do to the chicken (I'm probably better off not knowing!) but it's the tenderest, juciest chicken I've ever had. The lasagne is also pretty good. The staff are lovely, the views... More

Have visted the Mar Casa many times over the past 10 years and have always been satisfied with our visits. We often go with some friends who live on the Island and also eat here regularly. Staff and Manager have always been courteous and friendly and the food has always been of a consistently good standard. The Canarian Soup (Potage)... More

The food and service is second to none. Nothing is too much trouble. Very friendly staff who are all great with the kids. Thank you to Alex for promoting it so well and convincing us to eat there. See you next year!

Had our first meal here while visiting PDC but needless to say did not return. The onion soup was defenitly the best part of the meal. I had fillet steak which was just like a beefburger but being so hungry scoffed it anyway. Wife has grilled sole and she said it was full of bones and extremely dry. Also expensive... More

The restaurant is nicely situated - great view of the port. The menu is standard fare - steaks/fish etc. Service OK - not inspired - many better restaurants elsewhere in Puerto del Carmen

The only thing I regret is that we didn't go into this restaurant earlier on our holidays but once we did we went back 3 times! The 'fish in salt' was to die for. My husband had the steak every night as he loves his steak and he said it was the 'best he ever had'! The staff were really... More
