Reviewed October 11, 2013

Liked everything. Thank you to Monica, Belen and Virginia for the warm welcome yet again. The duck was the best I have ever tasted. Keep up the high standards. I cannot come to Lanzarote without a visit to Mamma Africa. Highly recommended

“Best restaurant in La Santa if not Lanzarote!”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

Don't be fooled by the name or exterior, this is without doubt the best restaurant in La Santa village.
Monica & Mark are the perfect (no pun intended) hosts & the food is always fresh & beautifully prepared & cooked.
We are on a mission to find the best mojito in the world & think it resides here courtesy of Mark.
Also try the Chilean Rose with overtones of raspberry dear....
Don't forget to ask for 'Monica's Pudding' for afters.
And remember the golden rule: quality & value is as important as the price!
Keep up the good work guys.

“Early bird meal”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

We visited Mama Africa for the early bird menu which is available 5.30pm - 7pm for 18 euros. We thought the portions would be smaller with being cheaper but they were great.
The staff were attentive and the three course meal was well presented but the venue is next to the rubbish bins and there is a smell and there are flies.

“Excellent food and service but quite pricey”
Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

Good choice of food well cooked and presented more expensive than other restaurants close by, could pay more attention to small details like cleaning prawns properly. Overall lovely place

“Excellent food, cosy place... highly recommended”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Not only the food is excellent, the quantities are also big enough. Many times, when the food is excellent, there is this tendency to offer small portions: here it's not the case, even sports people with big appetite feel satisfied!!
