I've been coming to Lanzarote for years and this is the first time I've got my steak exactly the way I like it. I've had some great meals out on the island but this one really did stand out. From the choice of wines through to the advice that came with helping choose my meal, everything was just right. It's... More

We had a lovely meal there at the end of October and the service was very good also. The ingredients were good, the wine list was better than most in the area and the location is lovely also

Small restaurant on the marina run by a lovely couple from Argentina and Uruguay. The steaks are delicious and cooked on a traditional grill (wood ambers, no flames). Service is very friendly but also very relaxed so don't go there if you are looking for quick service. The food is well worth waiting for, there are nice views of the... More

Steaks here are to die for!! The staff are so friendly and so helpful. Everything is so fresh and cooked to order which means the service can be a little slow but definitely worth the wait. Can't wait to come back!!

Looked forward the evening having read the reviews. Make sure you book particularly if want an outside table. Closed Tuesdays. We both had the steak, thats what you go for, I asked for mine very rare/bleu and was a little surprised it was cooked more than that. Probably stopped us going back a second time. Side dish and salad portions... More

My partner and I visited La Portena towards the end of October. Despite us not having a reservation the lady kindly managed to fit us in, we also got a great table outside. The restaurant was full and with only two staff waiting on we had to wait over hour for our order to be taken! When the food did... More

You must visit here!! The best steak either of us have ever had. Everything we had was cooked to perfection. Black pudding starter is excellent and could give anything from Bury a run for it's money. Wine list is extensive particularly the reds. We had a bottle of Mendoza which was superb. Will visit again before we leave Porta Calera
