Can't say enough good things about this place. Every element excellent, loved the accompaniments, fresh hot bread role etc. I had the fillet steak cooked 'blue' under recommendation from Flo ( a fantastic & funny front of house) it was absolutely perfect in every respect. Best I've had on the island by a long way. We'll certainly be back!

Visited La Portena on recommendation. First attempt were fully booked (need to book in advance). Went back two days later and had the most fabulous and tender steak. The owner made the evening - very attentive - giving excellent advice about not over ordering on sides dishes etc. She told us when we returned to make sure we were hungry... More

Visited last year and was a little disappointed my steak was undercooked but thought we would give it another go this year and we are so glad we did! The owner even recognised me and I do love the personal touch ;) the steak was amazing, even though they ran out of the red wine we had the upgraded wine... More

The ice cream sweet selection went on forever & each one better than the last.When we finished eating we just sat &... More

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...
