I went here for 'special' meal during my week in Lanzarote. The food and service were fine with a nice bottle of Yaiza Malvasia. It is situated overlooking the seafront and seems to use this to justify charging up to 50% more than the restaurants on the street behind by the Church.
Most restaurants in Playa Blanca offer the same menu, just in a different location.

we ate here on our last night after 2 weeks in Lanzarote and it was by far the best meal we had. That includes the food and service. Very friendly and fantastic food! We went on a saturday night and were lucky to get a table so booking is advised (particularly if you want one of the front tables with views over the bay). The Chef's fillet steak special is highly recommended! not the cheapest restaurant but definately value for money. Go!

This was our one evening away from the hotel and we struck lucky. Wonderful service and tables by the window look out over the bay.
Garlic prawns a must.

My wife and I visit Playa Blanca about 4 times annually. The highlight of our day is always evening dinner. Some years ago we tried La Chalanita, once only, because the food was indifferent, and the staff somewhat unsavoury looking and surly. However we heard that it was under new management (Jose and Roman) and was getting glowing reports. Hence during our Christmas and New Year Holiday, we tried it again, and were so impressed that we had another 3 dinners there. It is marginally more expensive than most other restaurants, but boy, is it worth it! I can say without hesitation that, in my view, it is the finest restaurant in Playa Blanca, but word has got round, so booking is virtually essential. Fresh fish as good as Casa Pedro, and flambed steaks sublime.

We stumbled across this restaurant whilst shopping in Playa Blanca, What a little gem. We had a delicious paella washed down with a glass or two of the "house white", sitting in a window seat, we could see the bay and soak of the atmosphere - magic. The staff were very helpful and friendly and we will definitely revisit next time we are in Lanzarote. We were staying at the Rubicon Palace, fully incl. and it made a nice change to eat out. The paella was nicely cooked and it was very tasty - plenty for two - in fact we couldn't eat it all.
