“Such a peaceful place to eat”
Reviewed December 3, 2013 via mobile

Out family stopped here to get a bite to eat before visiting the famed beaches nearby. What a peaceful, pleasant place to stop. Food is super fresh and the service is excellent and friendly.

“Low quality, old disgusting fish and total rip off!”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

I read reviews about this place and went for a dinner. The owner was very rude as we arrived quite late but i asked if was still ok to eat or too late. She said was ok so we stopped by.
Apart from "puntillas" which were good, we were served old disgusting fish as main meal with only a few papas arrugadas and no salad or vegetables of any kind as it normally happens anywhere else.
We left most of the fish in the dishes..
We also ordered a jag of white wine "of the house" so didn't come from a bottle at all which was ok but, apart from the fact that it tested like water, the price was a total rip off. Almost €15 while in other places we paid between €6 and €10!
We'll never go back to a place with rude people, poor service and low quality food like this!
DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS AT ALL! We tried other places around this restaurant so the choice is vaste and it's definetely possible to eat better at El Golfo..

“This restaurant couldn't be closer to the beach!”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

You sit right beside the black beach watching the sun go down whilst listening to the waves crash on the black rocks and eat the divine fish caught locally that day. It's perfect. Definitely one of the best meals we have eaten on the island. Staff were helpful and friendly too. Tip go for the catch of the day for the best fresh fish which is boned for you at your table.

“A delicious lunch right on the beach”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

We stopped off here for a leisurely lunch after visiting the volcanoes. We were reasonably early (about 12.30pm) so managed to get a table at the front of the terrace, with a uninterrrupted view of the beach and sea. It is certainly a stunning location, albeit a little windy (but it is Lanzarote alfter all!). The service was very good and our waitress was attentive. We chose a selection of dishes as tapas, and can definitely recommend the prawns in garlic (delicious) as well as the fried cheese and grilled octopus. Watch out for the cats brushing against your legs!

“Lovely views, food, situation”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Lovely place. exceptional seafood simply cooked. Sit out by the waves and the sea air!
Only thing, watch the feet / under the tables if sitting outside. It seemed to be a giant cat litter tray, but that didn't take away from the experience at all.
staff could be a little friendlier and more attentive.
