We have eaten here several times during our two week stay on lanzarote and every meal has been superb. Meat dishes and fish dishes have been equally enjoyable and excellent value for money. We have always been greeted with a very warm welcome and would highly recommend it. The owner is always smiling and very accommodating- a must on your list of restaurants during your holidays!!

El Palenke has an unpromising exterior which belies the warmth of the welcome, the coldness of the beers and the quality of the grilled meats.

Unlike other reviews of El Palenke, we selected primarily the grilled meat dishes at this restaurant for our main courses and can vouch for the pork cops and lamb chops which were both excellent. Pollo Jamoncitas was very disappointing - dry and with almost no meat - so I would recommend you avoid.

Pretty good as starters were the Pulpo alla Gallega and puntillitas.

El Palenke is open noon to midnight at the time of writing, useful to know if you arrive late in the evening at Punta Mujeres.

My friend and I ate at El Palenke several times during our holiday in February 2013. We were always greeted with a friendly and smiling welcome. We enjoyed perfectly cooked fresh local fish. If there are two of you, it is a good idea to order two different fish on a platter, so you can share both - we especially liked the fish called "cherne" and "vieja". Of course they also serve grilled meats etc. Don't be put off by the rather modest sign outside ("bar/restaurant") - this is a good
restaurant with simple but excellent cooking at reasonable prices. We highly recommend it.
