“Superb location, friendly service, varied menu and great cocktails”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

This was our first time at Lani's which occupies a prime location beside the Marina, with accompanying views over the water. They offer a varied menu that caters for most tastes and we went twice for dinner during our stay. The service was friendly and efficient and relaxed. The food was well presented and the portions good value for money (we had Mexican on our 1st visit and excellent steaks on our 2nd. As has been said by others the cocktails are extremely good and reasonably priced.

There's no doubt the location is a prime attraction for customers but they back it up with good service at reasonable prices. We will keep Lani's on our list when next in Playa Blanca.

“Food out of the freezer!”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

After a long time searching for a Hamburger with only beef, we decided to go to Lani's, 'cause they were the only one who had Hamburger not just porc-beef-mixed..
The scenic view is okay, of course it's great to sit at the harbour watching the boats etc...
I expected a lot from this restaurant, they had big advertising with something like "enjoy our great food" etc, but I was really disappointed at the end...

We started with finding a place to sit and we decided to sit outside...
The staff was nice and friendly and they brought us some baked rolls with butter at the beginning and I thought, they would offer it for free as an appetizer... (and I didn't know that I would have to pay for it at the end... No words about it, not from the staff etc... The baked rolls were not even "fresh"...)
We ordered some pasta and a Hamburger & fries and we got our food within five (!) minutes.
I was surprised and of course - the food wasn't "fresh" aswell.

The Hamburger:
Cheap Meat, that came right of the freezer, a wobbly Hamburger bun. Not even ketchup sauce - what the hack is that? A dried piece of meat and yeah... I don't know what to say...
The fries were as "fresh" as the meat was... Hmm... Delicious ;) (Please understand that this was sarcasm...)

So... Every second word in the card of the restaurant was written wrong, so we ordered a Pasta "Fingi", instead of "Funghi". Not a big deal, of course, but mixed with all the other experiences at that restaurant that gives a clear picture of how they work...
The Pasta:
It looked okay, but the sauce completely tasted like powdered soup - no spices, no "taste" - just a simple grey-mass...

We paid too much, 5,85 € for the "Hamburger" and 10 € for the Pasta.
The two "baked rolls" costed 2 € and we paid nearly 2 € tax.

I would definitely NOT recommend this restaurant!!!!!!

“The best ice creams”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

6 of us had ice cream dishes here one afternoon and they were all amazing. The service was a bit slow but they were well worth the wait. Delicious! Great location on the marina and comfortable seating.

“Very disappointing”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

We had eaten before in Lani's Grill in Playa Blanca and were very disappointed with that meal, but decided on this holiday to try Lani's Snack Bar. Suffice to say, we were not impressed here either; the food was, in our opinion, very mediocre and not worth the money.
The best thing about the snack bar is the view.
We will not be back to either of the Lanis in Playa Blanca. There are plenty of other better eating-places in the area.
