We go there a couple of time on every trip to the island. Puerto Calero Marina is probably the most glamorous place in Lanzarote and the food in this restaurant Is always perfect. Florencia never changes .. A whirlwind of welcome and hugs ...and there is a sense of fun in the air . Steaks superb and very good Argentinian... More

My boyfriend and I ate here as a special treat the 3rd evening of our holiday (we were all inclusive in the Hesperia but fancied a change). It was the best decision we made all holiday! The whole meal was delicious and was the best steak I've ever had. The owner was a lovely lady who showed us to a... More

My hubby organised a birthday Meal here he made a reservation while still in The U.K. A little slow to respond so plan early but from start to finish the staff the atmosphere and the food were out of this world and to top it off a birthday cake made by the chef highly recommend a visit

Our last night in Lanzarote...could not have been spent better. By the light breeze of Puerto Calero marina, a great Argentinian/Uruguayan steak house. Excellent food, impeccable service. On the expensive side but worth every euro cent

Visited July 11 2016. Arrived for booking at at 9.15pm offered the option of moving to a table outside when other diners were leaving. Very attentive and lovely couple. All courses were excellent. Of course you pay for the bread, as in all restaurants here, but homemade tasty bread! . We were told the portion sizes and advised to only... More

Booked an outside table for 8:45pm in the evening and arrived a little bit early so was seated inside 'until our table was ready'. We were not seated in our correct seat until about 10pm, over an hour late. During our wait we had a 1906 beer and a red wine which were both very nice and they brought over... More

Having sailed from Puerto Colera previously I have eaten at La Portena before and recommended the restaurant to my partner, we were not disappointed and it is easy to see why it occupies the No1 slot on Tripadvisor for this area. It is a very popular establishment so I would recommend phoning for a reservation in advance, though they will... More

Found this restaurant on tripadvisor. Small in size but excellent service from owner and good quality food well presented with a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc wine from Argentina. Somewhat pricey meal but well worth a visit if you visit the Marina. Tip pre-book reservation on line before you go
