What a wonderful place this is set on the first floor overlooking the square & marina. The welcome is like you have been going to this restaurant all of your life but this was our first visit. The food is top class with excellent service to top it all off, wines are reasonably priced with some excellent Rioja's. This is... More

On the harbour in delightful Puerto Calero, La Portena is cosy first floor restaurant well worth a visit - particularly if you're looking for a steak and some really nice accompanying red wine. It's a quiet and welcoming location and Flor is a most charming and engaging hostess. We particularly like the leisurely pace - there's time to enjoy some... More

what can I say? Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic. I came here last year with the girls and had a great time. This time was with hubby as I wanted him to taste the experience that we had previously. Couldn't fault anything, Hubby was absolutely delighted, he tucked into his bread and oils with gusto. Exceptional little pasties for starters, amazing. The... More

We love this place. The food is unreal. The best steak on the island. I recommend the mixed meat platter to share followed by a steak (obviously) and a nice bottle of wine. We had dinner on two occasions and can not fault it. A big thank you to Flor for her great service she is a magician when it... More

Gail and I have been going to La Portena for a number of years now and never had a bad meal. The steaks are to die for, as well as the starters. The lovely owners always remember you and couldn't make you more welcome. We are hoping to come out more often and this is the best restaurant by far.

My husband and I ate herefor my birthday whilst staying on Lanzarote and we both agreed that they were simply some of the best steaks we've ever eaten. Whenever we return to Lanzarote in the future regardless of where we're staying on the island we will travel to La Portena for dinner. The husband and wife team running the restaurant... More

If you are looking for a good steak while in this area look no further. Fantastic! Served with delicious salad, rosti potatoes or chips definitely a must!

Visited here near the end of our holiday and had a fantastic night. The food was amazing (massive portions, especially the sides, make sure you're hungry) and the staff were so friendly and welcoming. Can't praise it enough. It's a tiny place and it's not 'at the front' as such but don't let that put you off. Wasn't cheap but... More
