We hired a car when staying in Costa Teguise to do a bit of exploring and went up to the surf town of La Santa in the north, up past the national park.

We found the little restaurant of Mama Africa and it is by far one of the nicest places to eat on the whole island, the staff were very friendly and we had an early bird set menu for 19 Euros 50 cent each.

The food was amazing, not only was it the best food i have had ion the island it was some of the best food I have tasted anywhere in a long time, if you are looking for somewhere special to eat it is well worth hiring a car and driving here, don't miss this place.

This restaurant serves some of the best food ive had on the island. Perfectly cooked and very tasty. The service was also very good. The only thing that would put me off eating there again was that it was quite expensive and the menu was a bit limited (although to be expected due to the size of the restaurant).

A small, (but perfectly formed!) restaurant in the friendly village of La Santa Lanzarote. We ate there several times during our recent stay in the village, and we were not disappointed. Owner/Chef, Monica, takes great care with her cooking, and the food, and presentation, are excellent. First class service in a very friendly and warm environment. We will return!

Monica and Mark ensure their guests receive a very warm welcome at Mama Afrika. I have eaten there many times over a number of years and the food is consistently of the highest standard. Excellent fresh produce and wonderful flavours. Looking forward to a return visit in March!

We stayed at Club La Santa and have eaten in the nearby village several times but Mama Africa is definitely a step up from the normal cuisine.
Beautifully presented food, well cooked, local ingredients.
We had the "early bird" menu and all thought it was great value for money. If you try here, you won't be disappointed!
