“Favourite restaurant by the Meloneras beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

We dined twice at Hemingways during this trip to Meloneras.

In my opinion this is the best one of those many restaurants located above Meloneras beach. For me the seafood is the way to go, but also other dishes my family and friends have selected from the menu have been good they say. Add very nice white wine they have from Lanzarote to compliment a plateful of sardines or other fish or seafood from the menu, naturallay with some Canarian potatoes with mojo, what else could one need?

And as always, service was very friendly.

“Perfect Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

we arrived a little tired and worn out after having a stressful journey to find a supermarket to stock up our holiday villa! We were very hungry and I decided the tuna and prawn pizza was the perfect antidote and it was!! All of our meals were good on that occasion tho on the second occcasion one of our party had the taglitelle bolognase and it was really bad! In all fairness the item was taken of the bill and an alternative offered but the rest of us had eaten! I think maybe a new/different chef that night?

“Value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

The setting is superb, overlooking the ocean. We visited on a cool evening in December and were shown a table under the patio heater. The staff are attentive without being pushy. Can't go wrong here, something for everyone on the menu from locally caught fish with chips to pizza, to Canarian potatoes. Personally I wouldn't say the food was out of this world but it was plentiful and tasty.

“Smashing Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

After walking from the lighthouse in Maspalomas, we were in need of some nourishment, so we chose to stop at this restaurant, and so glad we did. We were well fed and watered and the waiters were very friendly, a very pleasant lunch break, we would recommend this place without hesitation.
