Owner description: Located 400 metres high, on the Risco de Famara, the Mirador del Río is one of César Manrique's most representative architectural creations as it shows a series of artistic and architectural details and his eagerness to combine art and nature. It is located near the remains of an ancient military base that dates back to the end of the 19th Century. It is camouflaged on the rock in a way in which only a genius of Manrique's magnitude could conceive.

Everything seems to cost 9 euros on Lanzarote but the view from the restaurant is worth it just to sit and enjoy their apple cake with a coffee.

paid to get in and was dissapointed thats its just a viewing platform and cafe! Could nave walked along the road and seen the other island fro free. However it is a Manriqe desigened structure and has a couple of his works in there so it makes up for it a little as it is not that expensive

We loved the views from the restaurant and different view points. The food was quite good and even the drive up offered some fantastic views.

Another interesting combination between the volcanic nature of the island and the artistic vision of Manrique that creates an unique panoramic spot.

So many other Tripadvisor members have written eloquently on this amazing place, this is just to say how glad we were to go. The only advice I would add is to be sure to take the more easterly of the two roads that lead to it, as the westerly road is very narrow with dry stone walls on either side and no fun at all to drive.
