Every time I come to Lanzarote I have to visit La Portena. I am not a big meat eater but there is something about the food here I love. Be Patient its worth it.

Nothing new to add to previous reviews. In short : Great Service, Excellent steaks, good location - maybe special mention for the children's roast chicken which was really tasty note as previous it is expensive but well worth it. Recommended.

I live on the island and I've tried pretty much everywhere and I can tell you this is one of the best places for steaks. I Can't believe so many bad reviews from people complaining about the wait, what do they want it's a nice place and they are on holiday! I also read of people arguing about the price,... More

My wife and I love Lanzarote having had numerous most enjoyable holidays over the past 40 years or so. We also really enjoy eating out even though we now normally go all inclusive, but quickly get fed up with the same OK offerings every night. There are many good restaurants in Carmen, Teguise and Playa Blanca, but in my opinion... More

This is a good reataurant. It is popular and a reservation necessary. Dont be worried about portion size it is exaggerated. At these prices the steaks are good value. Thing to watch is sides. Enquire closely about price and size and hold the waitress accountable. No starters and no desserts we still Came out at more than 70 euros without... More

This is a really lovely place. Great steaks and atmosphere with very friendly service. The food and wine are reasonably priced and really tasty. The portions are very large so choose a salad between 3 and a Rossi between 2. The starters were a little limited but if you love meat you will love this place.

We booked this on the last day of our hols for a treat and we were lucky to get a table so i highly recommend you book in advance if thinking of going here. They don't actually have that many tables inside. And they have one long table where you could be sharing with other diners. The service was friendly... More
