“Great food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2014

We had a meal in Port of Call last night for the first time during our stay and we were very impressed. Had the surf and turf and good sized portion, steak was excellent. Definitely eat in here again and recommend it to all, good menu choices and excellent wine.

“Meal surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014

Been coming to Playa Blanca for over twenty years and most difficult job is to find somewhere to eat where proper veg is served.
I had a gammon steak that was perfect and certainly one of the biggest I've had for years, delicious. My wife had chicken Kiev and again excellent.
It was one of those menus that left you wanting to return to try something else which we certainly will over the next few visits.
I would suggest that you should try this place and I am sure you will be presently surprised.
The service was very friendly and not rushed we felt really relaxed and enjoyed all of the evening.
As we stay in the villas on Faro Park it is ideal and the restaurant is easily within walking distance so far easier than travelling further afield and therefore enables drivers to have a night off and enjoy a drink.

I've been to this island many times over many years and have found the food here to be as good as it gets.

“Fantastic as always!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

Back from another brilliant week in Playa Blanca and one of the first things I always have to do is tell everyone just how amazing this restaurant is.

We discovered this place last year when we stayed in Faro Park for the first time, have visited Lanzarote plenty of times over the years but have only really taken notice of Playa Blanca in the last couple of years...so glad we found it sooner rather than later!

We ate here on 3 out of our 7 nights but after trying a couple of the other places nearby, our big regret is not eating here every night! Non of them even come close to this high standard. The food here is absolutely amazing, I have even brought back to the UK a piece of homemade chocolate fudge cake which I'm enjoying as I write this!!!

Head Chef Karl is outstanding at what he does, he really does know his stuff and its so refreshing to see someone taking so much pride and joy in what they do! The Surf and Turf is by far my most favourite dish ever and the Steak and Scampi are always cooked to perfection. My friend had the Corn fed Chicken stuffed with Mushrooms which she said was fantastic. There are also definitely no complaints about the portion sizes either, we always leave absolutely stuffed!

Karcsi runs the front of house and is always on hand to recommend a good drink to compliment the food, he also provides many an enjoyable drink when we're relaxing on the big leather sofas under the heater (which does come in handy on a cold night!)

As well as working in the restaurant, Karl and Karcsi are also the owners, they are always so welcoming and friendly, even remembering us from when we were here in January. They have just celebrated their first year and you can definitely tell they have a fantastic future ahead with the place going from strength to strength everyday!

I highly recommend everybody who is on holiday in Playa Blanca, to visit this little gem, its definitely worth it and we will be back very soon!
