After having two poor meals on our first two nights in playa blanca we were recommended the tipicol and after having a very good first meal, we ate there every evening thereafter. The prices are also worth mentioning at just over 7 euros for a very good sirloin steak it represented excellent value especially when you would have to pay... More

Always a sign of how good a place may be is how busy and happy the patrons are..this place was busy most of the time. Service was fine considering the numbers of keen people who were prepared to sometimes wait in a que for a table. Very good value, we enjoyed everything we ate and their house salad was the... More

Great food. This is the 2nd visit here in 3 nights. Great atmosphere, fantastic food. This evening we had a fillet steak, a lamb shank and paella for 2 - this is one of the best paella we have ever had in a restaurant (and we've had a few). Would absolutely recommended a visit, but book a table as they... More

Been coming to Lanzarote for 8years, and have eaten at Tipicos several times during that period, but last night we booked a table for 8.30, for 11, we eventually we got seated at 9.20!, they took the orders of the tables around us, we're very very rude, when we asked countless times for them to take our orders. Starters eventually... More

We've been coming to Playa Blanca twice a year for several years and have always had at least one meal at Tipico's. I've found it a bit hit and miss overall, but lately it's been very poor. Last night they managed to get everything wrong and the 11 of us left pretty peeved. It's reasonably priced, but if your food... More

Visited here three times in two weeks and each time the meals were excellent. The restaurant gets very busy so it is probably best to book. We made the mistake of not doing this on our last night and couldn't get a table. The staff were excellent and there was lots of banter between themselves and the customers which created... More

We have been here before but it was out first choice back in Playa Blanca. Although always very busy the staff manage mostly to keep up great levels of service. (Having to ask for the bill 3 times!) The good and variety is excellent. Well prepared and always quality. From a burger to chateubriand, flames at your table! Be prepared... More

I used to love Tipico but it's definitely gone down hill over the years, in terms of service and quality. It's a very reasonably priced restaurant, with a good menu, and an excellent range of choice. BUT.... the service can be poor, even bordering on rude, and the quality of ingredients is very average. There isn't much to set Tipico... More
