Before coming to Lanzarote my husband did some research via the internet on the restaurants in the Puerto Calero marina and based on the good reviews on trip advisor he booked this restaurant back in the UK as a surprise for me and I can say to was an excellent choice. The restaurant is run by the husband and wife... More

Food, service, music, wine, chimichurri, it's al splendid. Without doubt one of my favourite restaurants of Lanzarote. By far the best meal you can get in Puerto Calero. Been here for 4 times, quality stays on top and personal service of a sparkling hostess.

Read about this great place after searching for 'best steak in lanzarote' and wasn't disappointed! Great wine, friendly staff, delicious meal...make sure you go hungry though as portions are huge. Anyone who we spoke to also had great meals. Brilliant find.

We ate here on the Saturday Night before flying home, We managed to get a walk in, and I was pleased as I wanted to visit before we came home. Lovely Lady who owns/runs La Portena, she was truly great, and made you feel very welcome, She explained the menu as we had never been to an Argentinian restaurant before,... More

Type of place to make an evening of it - service is best described as relaxed and friendly so take your time and enjoy. A few of us thought it was one of the best steaks we had ever had. The Black Angus steaks and Empanadas were particularly good. Huge portions so go hungry.

A wonderful family run restaurant run by the kindest and most welcoming people. Flo, thank you for making it special for us every time we come! The food is incredible, go for the black angus, it melts in your mouth, just don't have to many delicious empanadas first! We always come in on the first and last night of our... More

We saw this place on well rates on TA and thought we'd give it a go. It's in a nice elevated location with a view over the harbour. The husband and wife that run this place couldn't be more helpful, the menu is interesting and clear had a lot of thought put into it. We devoured the home made bread,... More
