We sought a recommendation from the hotel staff for a restaurant where we could celebrate a special occasion - my birthday. La Chalanita in Playa Blanca was the place especially for a special occasion; excellent food and service but on the more expensive side. We booked and asked for a table by a window with fantastic views of the bay.... More

This is our favourite restaurant in Playa Blanca! We ate there last year and loved it so when we were back in Playa Blanca last week, we booked again...twice! The staff are so friendly and efficient and the atmosphere is always lovely. The food is deliciously cooked and the flambes cooked in the restaurant for the diners to see -... More

Once again this restaurant was on top form - fortunately we had booked a table by the window as the restaurant was full. The views from the window tables are beautiful even in the winter when it is dark. We are greeted on arrival and all the staff are friendly and have not changed for sometime. They did have difficulty... More

This place would of been perfect but we was taken there by friends and they spotted a few add ons to the bill. Pork dish and the steak for two were superb. If your happy to check the bill then you won't be disappointed

We really enjoyed our meal here. I had escalope in marsala sauce - really tasty. My husband had pork which was also beautifully cooked. Our starters of garlic prawns and melon and ham were very well presented and of excellent taste. A thoroughly enjoyable meal.

Been to playa blanca many times, but only just noticed this delightful restaurant. Set in a lovely position,the interior is so nice, lovely atmosphere and the food is brilliant. How I loved to have 'proper' vegetables and lovely Canadian potatoes as opposed to the dried up creations so many restaurants serve. Booking essential. We were lucky to get the last... More

Food is fabulous, cannot fault it at all. However, every time I use this place they insist on charging me for bread that I have not had. I never have bread, I always say no bread and still have to get it removed from the bill. Also they tried to charge for a more expensive dish which I didn't have.... More

On our latest trip to Lanzorote we've been here twice with the food being fantastic each time! Staff are very friendly and attentive. As a vegetarian with food intolerances aswell eating out can be a hassle in new places and the food can be bland but I had a lovely rice dish with asparagus and pineapple which was full of... More

This restaurant serves the same type of food as others in Lanzarote so we decided to choose from a special Christmas Day menu. The food tasted good and was a treat after the usual menu, it was well seasoned too. The wine was delicious, we splashed out on a reserva and the ambience and gentle sound of the ocean was... More

This was the restaurant that I most looked forward to visiting for some fine dining but I felt let down . The restaurant itself is one street up from the promenade and overlooks the sea. Pre booking is essential for a window table looking out over the ocean. The restaurant is cosy and inviting , great for a family dinner... More
