The view upstairs over the sea was awesome and the food was really colourful, fresh and delicious. Favourite restaurant in Lanzarote. Great cocktails too. Highly recommend!

We were disappointed with the service, we felt the waiter was very ignorant and fake. We had nachos to start which were very bland, for main the chicken enchiladas were also tasteless and dry. The chicken fajitas however were amazing.

Nice food and plenty of it but we had a waiter who didn't really understand English very well so didn't get the exact order we wanted but it was fine anyway. We sat upstairs by the window so was very pleasant

We visited this restaurant early December. There were only 2 other people dining here when we arrived. We were put off slightly by this, but found that many of the other restaurants were also very quiet at this time of year, so decided to give it a go. We ordered a jug of Sangria and Nachos with meat and chilli... More

I can only comment on the fajitas which I have every time I come, but they are always fabulous. There are nice views of the harbour as the cantina is accessed from the street behind the sea front and located above the front line restaurants. Its always a nice change from the regular touristy places.
