We took a drive to El Golfo, had no idea what we would find as we had never been to Lanzarote before. Anyway we decided to eat in this restaurant as it looks welcoming and has an excellent view of the sea. The waiters were extremely helpful on both occasions and spoke English (my Spanish is sadly lacking). This is a fish restaurant and you were presented with just the most fabulous choice of fresh fish on a plate for you to choose, and the waiter described each one in detail. The fish was then cooked and presented on a platter and de-boned in front of us. A side salad and Canary potatoes were provided. I can't recall ever enjoying fish so much before; so simple and unfussy. I also tried limpets which were just divine. Please please eat here, you can see from all the other reviews what a super place it is and you will not be disappointed.

We love this little fishing village near playa blanca. We have over the last few years been faithful to another great restaurant that we have reviewed before and when you have found a great restaurant it's difficult to try another.

Yet we did on this occasion and are so glad we did. Had beautiful squid, croquettes and the very best grilled sea bass that I have tasted. Combine the great views with the great seafood and el golfo is unmissable on any trip to Lanzarote.

A great little restaurant - the fresh fish they have is shown to you on a platter to choose and is very fresh and tasty. The service was excellent and very friendly. Good value too. My son had the steak and enjoyed this also. Would highly recommend !

We visited a number of local restaurants while staying in El Golfo. While this was not our number one choice overall, it was where we had the best fish. In spite of it being a slightly chilly night we were perfectly comfortable outside thanks to the sheltered dining area. The service was very good and the prices reasonable.
