“Relaxed, holistic restaurant with good local wine list.”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

On our first visit to Puerta Verde we ate the most delicious Asian prawn tapas - not what we would have expected on a tapas menu but utterly delicious with a mixed salad at lunchtime. The freshness of the salad was due to being grown in the garden on site by skilled gardener Susanne. Homemade ice cream changes regularly depending on what's good from the garden seasonally - strawberries during our visit. Her beautiful geraniums surround the tables and add to the overall bright and fresh environment.
We sat outside at pretty wooden tables listening to jazz from inside which made the checking of emails from home much more pleasant! Free wi-fi is on hand...couldn't help ourselves.
We returned for dinner and had a delicious Lanzarote Bermejo wine with a goats cheese salad to start, followed by rump steak with herb butter and a red Enate wine.
The menu is an interesting mix of local ingredients with some German influence - try the rosti with home made apple purée - but an overall European feel.
Susanne and Karl have created a great spot to have a lovely lunch, afternoon coffee and cake or relaxing dinner in Haria.

“Very good!”
Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

I went there on Saturday night, it wasn't busy at all, it is a small restaurant but the food is well presented and delicious ! The steak was tender and the chicken with spicy olive oil was phenomenal! It is not cheap but worth it!

“Marvellous Moussaka!”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

The food here was both interesting and unusual, while full of wonderful flavours, beautifully presented with great attention to detail. The basil soup and the vegan moussaka were a picture, scattered with red peppercorns and pretty garlic flowers! I did find them both a little too salty - maybe try Malden sea salt instead of normal cooking salt for milder seasoning. Otherwise, an excellent meal with delicious fruity, floral wine. The steak was tender and full of flavour, accompanied by equally yummy vegetables. It was difficult to choose which of the home made ice creams to try - all made with great imagination combining herbs and fruits - wonderful!

Bistro style reataurant, recently renovated, offering an interesting menu. A little more expensive but worth the extra. Delicious flavoursome food...

“Best restaurant in the village”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Food good, reasonably priced, attentive staff. Not the most atmospheric of surroundings as very new and modern but clean and bright.
