My husband and I visited La Portena this evening. We hadn't booked and on arrival we were advised with many apologies that we would only be able to sit at an outdoor table as the ones inside were all booked. Although it's a lot colder than is usual on this island, we were happy to sit outside and so we... More

I visited La Portena on the 18th February 2015 whilst staying at the Lanzarote Hesperia Hotel. I had read the reviews and planned to book but it was only a last minute decision to phone, I managed to get a table at 9.00pm and so glad I made the call. When I arrived the restaurant was busy, there was a... More

Plus so great starts and potato side dishes overall easy to... More

Husband does the cooking on a Argentinian type grill and wife does front of house whoose bubbly personality makes it a good experience. The steak(s)... More

It tells you something when all the restaurants on the marina are empty but La Portena is full on a Thursday evening. Was encouraged by the reviews so visited with family. Warm welcome by the host made us feel comfortable and relaxed. She kindly explained all of the menu to us and upon ordering you are presented with freshly baked... More
