El Lago is slightly pricier than the restaurants on Arrieta's main drag but it delivers. I had a very relaxed lunch overlooking the coast and, unusually, am struggling to find fault.

My only regret is that I was not more adventurous in ordering one of the chef's daily specials of fresh fish, rabbit and kid goat.

A more sophisticated wine-list and smart service makes me think this place will be just as bright on an evening.

I'll be back.

After reading reviews we expected a really good meal. The starters we really good and we were looking forward to the mains but the fish was disappointingly dry.

This restaurant is in front of the sea.
If you eat on their balcon you can enjoy the view, and also the sea "music"!!!
The food is absolutely fantastic, we eat there lobster, shrimp, sole, Paeilla etc, but I really reccomend the fried baby squid!!!
The staff is friendly, we was there twice, and the second time they remeber us and thei bring the same wine we asked the first time!!!

My partner and I had lunch at this restaurant during our recent holiday in Lanzarote and were so grateful for the recommendation. It was perfect. Excellent fish, great wines, beautiful views, friendly, helpful staff and faultless service. Prices were reasonable and food could not have been better. It was exactly what we had hoped for and contributed to a perfect day.

The best restaurant I've found in Lanzarote. I tried grilled fish and squid and was excellent! I even ate paella and I recommend it with some good Malvasia.
