First class meal , attractively presented by attentive staff. Prawn & leek pie and smoked salmon on colacho toast were followed by fillet steaks and lamb shoulder, and then pineapple dessert or chocolate mousse - all of them excellent!

We had a lovely evening in this restaurant. It is run by a husband (who cooks) and his wife (who acts as hostess) - she was very warm and friendly. The menu is limited and, as with all fine dining, the portions were on the small side but food was lovely. A particular highlight was the slow cooked pork (which... More

We dined here last year and had booked for this year before leaving the UK. Annabel is very welcoming and is very enthusiastic about the food and her husband's specials. The meal was lovely, for me one of the stars is the lovely bread with the little tray of salt, fresh tomato, oil and butter, a real treat. I had... More

We visited La Cocina de Colacho in December when celebrating my husbands 60th birthday. The food and service was very good, and we would definitely visit again on our next visit to Lanzarote. The only disappointment was that there were only 2 other diners in the restaurant when we visited, so not much atmosphere, but it was mid-week and low... More

Definitely a special place. If looking for real good cuisine in a resort like playa blanca you will not expect too much. Do not give up, this is definitely the place you can go. Creative and well served, and you watch the making in the kitchen through a giant glass window. Service is charming, even the plates are eye-catchers. Food... More

Made very welcome by Anabel and kissed on the way out-always a bonus🤓 Very much nouvelle cuisine, plenty of meat but teeny carrot, teeny floret of cauliflower etc. However, beautifully prepared, complementary liquor at end of mealso would recommend. Small nene, probably five starters, mains and puddinds- but better that than loads of mediocre food.

Food was amazing as with the service. Certainly not expensive and worth every penny. Would definitely return

Visited 16/02/17 based on this being the top rated restaurant in Playa Blanca. The food was really good but the restaurant lacked atmosphere and there was an air of foodie pretentiousness which may suit some people, but not this reviewer. The leg of lamb was fantastic, but accompanying vegetables could have come straight from a WW2 ration book! Desserts were... More

We were staying in Playa Blanca and found the La Cocina de Colacho on Trip Advisor. We made a short notice reservation and were impressed by the warm welcome, excellent food and overall feel of the restaurant. Our party of four (including a fussy eight year old) had fourteen different dishes all beautiful to both eat and look at. If... More

We have been to Playa Blanca many times and for a strange reason never visited La Cocina de Colacho. We corrected this last night and enjoyed some of the best dishes that we have eaten here. It would be unfair to single out highlights, though I should say that the chocolate fondant was perfectly executed. Nothing was anything but superb... More
