Great steaks and service

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... read 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

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

We have returned to stay in Puerto Calero following an 8 year break. On our fourth evening we (having made a reservation which is a must) followed TripAdvisor recommendations here. Florencia welcomed us like long lost friends and we were soon absorbed by the ambience. The menu is extensive. Other than the starters it revolves round a choice of a... More

If you like steak, you have to go there. It was one of the best steaks I ever ate. Salad and desert were excellent to. If it wasn't the end of our stay in Lanzarote we would certainly return for another excellent meal. Very nice service. I advised them to put their gps coordinates on tripadvisor since it's not easy... More

Had dinner twice during our stay at Puerto Calero. Great steaks - couldn't fault it. Superb salads to accompany your steak and lovely chips. Great host - made us feel very welcome.
