I went there for a quick lunch with my friend. We got two portions of tapas and two glasses of coke and payed about 18 €, which I deem a bit too high. Food was okay, the waiters seemed unnecessarily busy. Also, we got the impression that they didn't appreciate us as guests very much because we did not order... More

Was given in the most splendid surroundings. Fresh fish a plenty, salads, pasta and the most helpful service to boot - the waiter even boned the fish platter for us!!! Do try it, oh and by the way, the views are stunning too!

We went there for a quick lunch before going to el Parco National. We checked on Tripadvisor the reviews and we choose this restaurant. We set inside, as outside there was no tables available, but this was not a big deal. The menù is quite short, with no many choices. We asked for the Paella, but they said that the... More

Came here as I fancied trying limpets and what better place to go than a place named after them. We received a warm welcome from some lovely waiters and sat on the terrace next to the road. The road isn't busy and you can see the sea so it was a really pleasant spot for lunch. The waiters were so... More

We have been coming here for many years now and El Golfo is one of those places we always head to for the tranquility, fish restaurants and best sunsets. The guys at La Lapa couldn't be more helpful and congenial and the fish is sublime. We also appreciate the advice on wine and if you can't finish every bottle you... More

We tried a number of restaurants in Lanzarote, and found La Lapa to be the best by a mile. So much so, we ate there twice. The service was impeccable; friendly and informative. The fresh fish was perfectly cooked and the papas arrugadas (local potatoes) with the mojo sauce was delicious. I never write reviews on trip advisor but feel... More
