Visited recently with my teenage daughter and two little ones. Already busy when we arrived so we were lucky to get a table. The waiter put several cushions on a chair for my little boy and lifted him on, yapping to him in Spanish which he loved. We had bread and sauces, one of which was the garlickiest thing I've...

Very friendly welcome and service. Waiter recommended mixed fish which was excellent. Much cheaper than other restaurants as it is not on the front by the sea but it was poor weather so made no difference to us.

Small family arrived without a clue but we were shown straight to a perfect table. We went with the waiter's recommendations on the fish platter between 2 - simple and superb. Had a great dessert too. Really friendly staff and lovely atmosphere for lunch.

If you happen to be in the neighborhood, give this unpretentious place a try. What can i say I had the best fried baby squid ever so I'll remember that for a while. Bread was fresh and the staff nice and not pushy.

Would not recommend if you want to eat seafood. There are many much better restaurants you would want to eat at in Lanzarote.

My wife and I went with friends to enjoy a superb lunch at La Lapa. Despite the overcast weather and the strong wind, the terrace was still full which is indicative of the restaurant's popularity. As usual, we opted for the mixed grilled fish, shared between four. There were 4 different fish provided. Naturally they were cooked to perfection and... More

We were shown the fresh fish of the day and ordered the grilled fish platter for four, with Canadian potatoes and salad. We had, Barracuda, Parrot fish,... More

Had visited the green pool at El Golfo and went in the tapas bar right on the car park...and promptly walked out again! Not for us! Spotting the main street and a well worn path across the lava we came to La Lapa and stopped to check the menu. My companion is fond of fish, and out came one of... More
