“A fun night in La Lonja”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

We visited La Lonja on a wet night in early March! As a group of 8 we were well looked after by an attentive host. We were in the upstairs room which suited us as the weather was a little chilly at that time of the year. The downstairs, virtually open air rooms would be lovely in the summer. The menu is comprehensive although most of us went for the fish choices for the main course. Everyone was pleased with their meals which arrived promptly and efficiently. A good choice of wines also. The house wines, both red and white, proving more than adequate.

The waiting staff were cheerful and fun and the manager was very helpful in arranging a couple of taxis to take us back to our hotel. All in all an excellent evening at La Lonja.

“Not to my taste”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

This place is actually beautiful to sit in. Ambience is beautiful with so much typical Canarian architecture,the restaurant being set round an open air square. But thats as good as it gets.
Again we paid for bread which was served with the nicest part of the meal, a sort of creamy buttery shrimpy spread.
He had fish soup (hes a creature of habit) Ok. I had chiparones, which were disappointing.
The main course was paella. See my review of Casa Brigitta Lanzarote for a comparison. This was like something I could have got from Tesco shelves, and less tasty. We each got two mussels and about 5, not particilary nice prawns. I had a clam shell so I suppose I must have had one, and there were little chunks of some sort of meat......
With 2 fizzy water the bill was E43.73.
This was our first meal out on the island and since it was in Santa Cruz, we expected more.
That said we should have been warned by the fact there was no-one in at 12.30, and by the time we left an hour later only one more couple dined.

“Good restaurant in Santa Cruz de La Palma”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

A good quality restaurant in Santa Cruz de La Palma. Good ambiance with nice vegetation background. The food was freshly cooked and good. We ate here twice during our stay in Santa Cruz de La Palma, and would have no hesitation in going again.Prices were moderate, and perhaps service could have been a little more prompt

“Nice local restaurant”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

Located on the main road but with inside patio with nice vegetation around it. In the evening it was romantic. We had the Cocido Canario (local dish served during the winter time) and it was very good. The service was kind. We recommend
