The amazingly friendly patron has no English and service is not fast and there are no frills. It is truly an authentic Canaries experience. The traditional starter of potatoes roja sauce & goats cheese followed by two plates of both grilled and stewed goat with...exquisite ultra thin chips, plus a side salad of tomatoes and avocado. All excellent. And all this with a bottle of wine followed by generous free glasses of honey rum & and herbal liquor (brandy was also offered) for the amazing sum of 38 euros! Truly a must visit !More

Finally somewhere on Fuenteventura that is almost totally Spanish speaking. It’s not just for locals ( although there are lots in there) as there were several other Europeans in the room. This is not a big space, so don’t expect to show up at opening...time and get a table unless you’re in the first maybe 40 people. We waited until about 2 hrs after opening and waited about 20 mins at the bar. But it was worth it. The house specialty is undoubtedly goat or kid. But you can also have pork as well. Pretty limited menu, not much for a vegetarian here. Luis runs the place upfront but he speaks little if anything of other languages. There is one helper who can get by with some French. But just ask for cabrita or cerdo and the rest will follow. It appears the 38€ price is pretty much what you pay no matter what the two of you had. We had a beer and a bottle of decent Tempranillo with 4 courses each for that amount. Probably the best deal on the island.More

Staying just a mile away we were looking forward to eating here. The first day it was closed. A few days later we walked up to Tiscamanita and it was closed! We had a drink in Tio Pepe, not a jolly experience, and waited. Finally...on the verge of giving up and walking home to bread and cheese, we found it open. And was it worth the wait! The daughter speaks French which was marvellous, our Spanish being shamefully rudimentary. An amuse bouche of bread with local olive oil and black salt was glorious. A starter of Canadian potatoes with Goats cheese and mojo was delightful. Then tomato and avocado salad was refreshing. And then the old goat: tender, tasty and a joy. The service was wonderful and the clear pride of the proprietor in what they did a real pleasure. We want to go back!More

Cheap restaurant, very few choices for vegetarians (papas arrugadas with mojo rojo and goat cheese), almost none for vegans (mixed salad, avocado with tomatoes). Very limited choice but everything vegetarian I ate was good. My parents didn't like the fried goat (very fat and chewy)...but the goat stew was apparently ok. The coffee was great (with milk, cinnamon and lemon).More

A few things that would have helped me to know before I went: 1) The google maps location is 100% correct, it's a bit hard to find as the sign with "Casa Luis" is super small, whereas the restaurant seems to actually be called "Bar...Tiscamanita" or something like that, since this sign is very large on top of the building. 2) I would recommend to be there at 20:30 when they open, preferably before, in order to be first in the queue that will undoubtly build. It's less a problem of getting a table, but more a problem of everyone being super laid back - the people who arrived 4th had to wait 30 minutes until their order was even taken and 1:30h until their food arrived. If you don't mind that, then you don't have to arrive early, but I prefer to have dinner before 22:00 3) It helps a lot to speak some Spanish. You don't need a lot, keep your phone handy for quick translations, look up a couple of phrases before. Luis speaks 0 English and he makes no effort to do so either (which I find very charming, it's rare to find something so original) What you get here is a huge amount of food (we had similar dishes to everyone else who reviewed here), which came with a bottle of wine, a coffee and 4(!) liquors per person, for a grand total of 38€. This incredibly good price/quality ratio, combined with Luis, who you have to see in action to believe it, makes for a great unique experience you should not miss when in Fuerteventura. The only issue is driving home after all that alcohol... Cash only!More

We came here in the recommendation of a local and were not disappointed. We speak very little Spanish but that didn’t matter as Luis pretty much serves a set menu. You point to things on the wall (goat or fish) and then the fun begins....Canarian potatoes with Mojo Sauce and local goats cheese, a house salad (comes with tuna so ask for no tuna if veggie) then goat stew which was out of this world and baby goat - a bit chewy but interesting and tuna steaks. All with shoestring fries. I ve had smaller Christmas dinners!! Luis serves his very own type of special coffee and OMG it’s amazing. Comes with four layers, cinnamon, lemon and he insists in stirring it for you himself to get it jus right. It was sensational! This place may be hard to find - but worth the trip. It’s a one strip town so drive slowly and you ll spot the small sign. It’s 38 Euro for two Plus tip.More

What an amazing place.... hidden in a small village with Just a very small sign but the queue of local people outside before the doors open will tell you that you’re in the right place!! No menu, no prices, and you may have no idea...at all what you’ve ordered but a great place for traditional food and the experience. I recommend the avocado and tomato salad with locally grown produce, the papas and local cheese and if you’re meaty and love goat you’ll be in heaven!! You must order a barriquito to end the experience..... allow plenty of time to absorb and enjoy and feel like a true localMore

Turned up for late lunch. This little gem of a restaurant/Cafe was busy with locals & Spanish speaking tourists! The waiter... Luis the man... we found out later. Seated us at the bar. Expect approx 15 - 20 min wait. But worth every minute! Trust...the Gods! We didn’t speak any Spanish ... there is no menu. Just what you manage to agree per person cost and type of food you don’t like [yup we managed it with a few gestures & pointy fingers at pictures etc! :) ].... the rest you leave to Luis! We left after 3hrs & 7 courses... there was potential for more... as taken by fellow diners! Phew! Local, fresh, overwhelmingly tasty... complete gastro heaven! And immensely Value for money! This is the Real Deal when it comes to ‘tucked unassuming’ traditional Island Cafes/Restaurants. It’s so good, I’d implore you to travel here from wherever you are on the island of Fuerteventura! And ensure you have 2hrs plus to enjoy the food & family friendly ambience! Leave it the gods (Luis & his wife) and you shall be served heaven ...More

Thank you Luis for a wonderful dinner. We stayed at a local farm.Tiscamanita is a very rustic back to nature village for those who want to get away from it all with absolutely no airs and graces. We waited on the street for 90 minutes...in the mad wind for Casa Luis to open as we did not realize they open at 8.30 pm. We were so glad we waited as it was really very wonderful! Gracias Luis ❤️More

Casa Luis, a roadside family restaurant on the old road linking the south of Fuerteventura island with the north (or vice versa, if I reconsider!) is a great place to stop for lunch from a long journey. By family, I mean old style mom and...dad in the kitchen and Aunt Em bringing in the desserts from just three doors away. This is primarily a meat-oriented establishment but can easily cater to vegetarians (though not vegans, I fear) as the owners serve scrumptious salads with locally grown cherry tomatoes that will transport the average diner to Nirvana. Indeed, all the food is not only exquisitely prepared but dolloped out in ample portions. This writer would recommend NOT ordering the whole meal until customers have seen the first course. You may change your mind about the main meal. If you happen to speak Spanish, Don Luis will no doubt regale you with tales of his son, the ambitious trumpet virtuoso (and music teacher) who left the island to find work in neighboring Gran Canaria, much to the evident sorrow of his folks. But the lad does fly home on weekends and helps with the business. All this gossip is simply to emphasise the very familiar atmosphere and joy of this wonderful bar. By the way, be sure to set your sights on Tiscamanita and not Triquivijate. The two towns are often confused. Triquivijate has other attractions to commend it but they do not include Casa Luis alas!More
