Cant fault this place. the vista is superb! right down near the waves at sleepy El Golfo, you don't need a front table the views are good further back too. Renounced for its fish Costa Azul is a long established place with a laid back feel. Can recommend the cherne fillet and the fried baby squid is excellent. If you like puds can recommend the traditional Bienmesabe dessert (made with honey and almonds and served with ice-cream). It's not a cheap option here but can still recommend this place, it's magical!

This is worth a visit for views of the sun setting into the sea alone. The colours are magical (see photo). The outdoor seating is also sheltered from the wind so you don't need to worry about being cold in the evening. The tables next to the beach say reserved but this is just for anyone eating. The food is quite expensive & does not quite live up to the prices. The tomato garlic bread was very strong of raw garlic, the goats cheese was very mild. The catch of the day was Dorado...not sure £38 euros for this is a special price just for tourists but I had high expectations! The fish was well cooked but covered in raw garlic again (and I am a garlic fan but it was overpowering). It came with 6 little Canarian potatoes which were not very well cooked & 2 slices of tomato...not quite what I was hoping for! The service was very friendly, as we have come to expect in Lanzarote but the prices & the quality did not quite correlate for me. Maybe come for a drink!

We had a seafood lunch here which was the best lunch we had all holiday. Fresh local fish and grilled squid cooked to perfection. No complaints whatsoever. Would return.
Great views of the massive waves pounding the beach and headland.

We were looking forward to returning to Costa Azul after lovely meals there in 2011. This year, however, we were disappointed: the food was good but definitely not as good as previously. It was quite expensive, no longer good value for money. The fish was on a dry side and lacked flavour, the fish soup was very good. The service was slow, maybe because the restaurant was very busy.

The location is as spectacular as ever as long as you get a table on the terrace!

This is a truly wonderful spot for morning coffee - no hurry just enjoy the perfect views and the sound of the waves.
Perhaps not the best of the fish restaurants in El Golfo, but good service and no complaints.
