We stayed in Puerto del Carmen in November. The area we were in didn't have any restaurants on Trip Advisor. We tossed a coin and ended up at Sam Maguires. Atmosphere was very average. There is a nice beach view. It is directly across from the beach on the second floor. Our waitress was extremely nice and helped with recommendations. I had the traditional fish and chips. Very, very good! My husband had the steak! Amazing!! As we talked with the waitress, she let on how the chef has worked with Gordon Ramsey. The quality of the food and the presentation was awesome! We enjoyed it so much, we planned to return the next night. On Sunday, they serve Sunday Dinner. You have the choice between beef, lamb or chicken. I had the 'melt in your mouth' lamb... Hubby had the chicken (he said he should have had the lamb) I have never had lamb that tasty in my entire life! I think the Sunday Dinner was only 7.95 (or around there). Very cheap for such amazing food. We also tried the hot wings before dinner as we were there watching a game or rugby. Again, amazing... Our next trip to Lanzarote, we will definitely visit Sam Maguires again! Forgot to mention the beer on tap was traditional Spanish beer. Very nice though.

Food was nice but it's like being in a community centre. The service was good and the food was average. Little disappointed as it was recommended

We have been visiting Lanzarote for years and know the owners very well so when they opened this restaurant we were interested to see if it would be as nice as the food in the bar the Audl Triangle. It is and more so. Wayne Murphy is the chef and the food is presented in a very professional manner and tastes even better! Well worth a visit.
