Went to this restaurant based on other peoples review & definitely was not disappointed. Probably the best meal I have had in Lanzarote. It is not cheap but you are served quality food, excellent staff service with a smile, main waitress ( chef is husband) very helpful & informative regarding dishes. Will definitely return

The only negative part of my review is that I found this on our last night, so couldn't eat here more than once! Waitress was brilliant, very friendly and so informative about the menu which made our decision so much easier when placing an order. I had a steak (medium rare), it was awesome! Cooked just how I liked it,... More

We visited La Portena for my boyfriends birthday (the biggest steak lover you will find) and it certainly did not disappoint! We were warmly welcomed by the perfect waitress (the wife of the owner) who explained everything perfectly to us by relating their Spanish dishes to English ones which we loved, she was so friendly and funny and added massively...

I have reviewed this restaurant before and we have been a few times since then. Food is always excellent and the steaks in particular cannot be faulted. This was the first time we had drinking guests and boy what a difference in the bill. An expensive place to eat anyway but the price of spirits, which we had not noticed... More

Not the cheapest place to eat but the food is excellent and if your a steak man like me it's worth every euro.
