Thought the place was a little "snooty" but it turns out that this is an absolute gem,
Very professional staff, very knowledgeable, great wine
Full of locals!!
Always a good sign
If u want a chicken kiev and chips go elsewhere
If u want beer and a burger go else where
However if u want really great meat, tapas and spanish food
You are not going to get any better than this
The price is exactly what you expect for a quality meal,
Its not as cheap as you would get if you ate on veronicas strip but it is exactly what you expect for a high quality meal
Will defo go back

Visited Las Lanzas on March 2014 for an 8p.m. dinner based on TA reviews. A small bar-like place with a dozen (rather noisy) locals having drinks. A nice atmosphere. Was quickly greeted and seated. Staff spoke some english but not fluent and clearly appreciated our spanish-efforts.

After being seated we were brought menus and 2 pieces of (cold) bread. We had beef (well done) and fish. Both meats were tasty and tender (best meat we've had on Tenerife so far). Dishes are served with fresh oily vegetables and potatoes of different textures. Nothing seemed frozen. Portion sizes were reasonable, but a bigger man is left slightly hungry.

Had a nice small(ish) chocolate-cake for dessert. Tasty!

The major downside of this nearly perfect place is its price. Starters average to 9€, main courses 18€ and desserts 5€. For a dinner of two with no drinks we had a bill of 47 euros.

I was disappointed to see that we were billed 2.4€ (1.2€ per loaf, probably the more people eating the more they charge) extra for the crappy bread we got which is slammed to the table automatically before you even order. Also like in many places, one small bottle of water costs 2.5€.

That's a total of +4.9€ extra added to my bill and I think it's a tourist-ripoff.

Recap: Food, service and atmosphere excellent. If you can afford it.

I love restaurants like Las Lanzas. It’s the sort of “locals place” that you would love to have near wherever you live – cooking the foods that are local to you and serving it up with a friendly smile. This is the second time we’ve eaten here and, as the last occasion, we were the only non-Spaniards in there. It makes for a different experience from the identikit tourist restaurants and, whilst I’m sure the staff will understand if you order in English, it’s certainly a time to use whatever Spanish you have. It will be appreciated.

There’s a fairly short menu. And half of it is given over to fish and other seafood, so it seemed a good bet to order from that part.

A plate of a dozen prawns was a delight as a starter. Simply grilled, they needed nothing more than a squeeze of lemon. The other starter was the Spanish classic of reveulto. Again, simplicity itself – a mix of scrambled egg, mushrooms and prawns, garnished with croutons. Now, OK, I prefer my scrambled eggs to be quite a bit runnier than how they were served but, that apart, it tasted really good.

For mains, another classic dish of sole meuniere – the fish perfectly cooked; the sauce buttery and lemony. The other dish - hake in Bilbao style. Nope, we neither – I had to Google it later to get the confirmation that it does mean that the large fillet of fish is cooked with garlic, red pepper and a smidge of chilli. I liked this a lot.

Both plates had the same selection of vegetables – griddled courgettes, mushrooms and carrots. And there were the inevitable Canarian potatoes with mojo sauces.

To my mind, this is one of the nicest meals to be had in PDLA. Las Lanzas – go spear yourself some good food.
