This place was recommended by a friend, and we were not disappointed. We also checked trip advisor prior to our visit. As the restaurant is not on the main prom, their food including the steaks were slightly cheaper. 2 of my family chose the fillet mignon, both Cooke to perfection. The chips were like home made, not the usual fries... More

Check out other reviews. This is the best food in lanzarote. Service is brilliant. No grovelling, no pretence just good service. The man works his t**s off, and does a brilliant job. We've been to this restaurant on numerous ocassions and can't complain about anything.

We visited for an evening meal and were pleasantly surprised by the food which on the whole was good. Unfortunately my chicken was pink so I had to leave it, although the prawns in garlic and sole were very good. Such a shame about the sour faced waiting staff. However at 8 more staff started and a few pepple who'd... More

WE had lunch and dinner here ordering fillet steak on both occasions. No hassle restaurant and very friendly service. At €11.90 for a delicious fillet steak it has no competition. Cooked to perfection and served with your choice of side dish. We will return.

If you want good food that is well cooked then this is one of the best restaurants in Playa Blanca.We visited twice every week having Tapas on one visit and the main menu on the second. There is a wide choice of authentic Tapas with some very good chorizo and baby green peppers. The main menu has a very good... More

Went here for lunch on our first day, we were the only customers and it took a while for the waiter to even realise we were there! Eventually got our lunch, food was OK, waiter just went through the motions. OK for lunch though.

The food on our three visits was great along with the service and priced a lot cheaper than the eating places down on the sea front . Irish coffee to die for. T bone steak what a treat .

The best place in Playa Blanca to get a reasonably priced meal. The flambé fillet steak in pepper sauce is our favourite. Staff very helpful and friendly

We visited there twice during our holiday, and on both occasions the food was excellent but on the downside, the decor was dated, toilets were third-world and they must serve a higher class of vegetables to accompany their meals: the ones they served were the best by a country mile of all the restaurants we visited, but nevertheless were minuscule...
