“Great recommendation”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

We are regular users of Tripadvisor, so chose to visit the number one recommended restaurant whilst in Lanzarote. This was La Cabana! Unfortunately, La Cabana was closed but the manager recommended that we try La Tegala down the road. So, we gave it a try. The restaurant is in an interesting glass box, which is elevated so you can have a good view around. The food was great, the service was friendly and the price was reasonable. What more can you ask for. We'll have to try La Cabana next time because it must be amazing to be rated above La Tegala.

“The Jewel in Lanzarote's Crown”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Passed this restaurant many times on the way from Arrecife to Playa Blanca and always wanted to try it. This trip we took the time to leave the kids at the villa and have an adult night out. My only regret is that we had not been here on our previous six trips to Lanzarote. This is a tremendously professional offer, the restaurant is interesting in design, its angular form makes the most of the Lanzarote wind and gives excellent views of the rugged and dramatic landscape. The staff are extremely welcoming and literally nothing is too much trouble for the pin-sharp professionalism of the Maitre-d - she even loaned us reading glasses and a small torch to read the menus! The food was well prepared (if a little slow - even for Spain), the tastes and texture combinations were clear indicators that German Blanco has spent time perfecting his art. Each course arrived with expert timing and careful presentation, it was a delight. The portion sizes were just right as we both left feeling very satisfied. We will certainly visit La Tegala again next year, the standard is the best we have had on Lanzarote (sorry Amura, your beautiful location cannot make up for the expertise from Mr Blanco's kitchen). A meal to remember in an exceptional location, well worth the trip and the cost, make an effort to make a special trip to this special experience.

“Nice gourmet restaurant”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

The architecture of the building is amazing. This is a gourmet restaurant, excellent quality but a little pricy. We ate here in our special night and we enjoyed it very much. The silence (despite the fact that is located by the street) and the panorama (towards the ocean) make the restaurant very special.

“Changed & even better!”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

The chef and front of house changed here start of June 13 and this great restaurant is now even better. I won't spoil too many surprises but if you like watching gourmet cookery programmes, with spherification, water baths and other amazing techniques, accompanied by wonderful tasting food and attentive waiting staff, then this is for you. And (for those in the know) we ended up spending less than at Amura in Calero. There was a tasting menu with wine accompanying each course (no small measures) but we couldn't do that justice so ate 3 courses off the a la carte - incl. local wine & an aperitif & amuse-bouches ....102E for 2. Tasting menu might be slightly more for 2, but not too much. Fantastic.
