“The best of the island!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

The best food we had on the island, the owners are fantastic, we felt like home, great and fresh food - after one lunch we had to come back the other day to try other tapas! Fanstatic place and I would like to have a restaurant like this closer to Poland;-) When I am on Lanzarote next time - definitely Casa Rafa is a "must go" place again. If you go to see El Golfo take a short break and try calamar de la plancha, gambas con ajo, pulpa...., mmmmmmmmm
Saludos de Polonia!

“Martin Liz and family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

Best fish restaurant on the island have been coming here for years, Rafa and Maria are excellent hosts' very welcoming, set in the beautiful village of El Golfo, you can sit back relax and enjoy a fantastic meal with great wine and very nice staff, especially good with my little one who only eats chips or pasta, recommend baby squid, paella limpets, garlic prawns or fresh local catch of the day with great salads and Canadian potatoes.

“Lovely food,friendly,relaxed host”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013 via mobile

We visited El Golfo last night, having had a quick look around we decided to try Casa Rafa,and we were not to be disappointed. we sat down around 7.30 and had the place to ourselves...apparently it's a very quiet village of an evening. the owner was excellent,friendly,explaining the menu and wines to us.the food was superb (i had the lapas to start and we then shared a fantastic paella) and watching the sun set over the sea was a real treat.we left around 9.45 with only two other couples in residence...lovely place,certainly worth a return visit.

We visited this restaurant in the evening having seen el golfo on a drive through. The food and service was fantastic! The waiter was very friendly and knowledgable. The fish was superb! We watched the beautiful sunset from our table. A wonderful evening!
