“Superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

As a Brit abroad it is always so simpler to take the easy option and go for the place that looks predictable. Taberna Godino is a traditional Spanish Tapas Bar and most of the lunch time diners are Spanish. Don’t let this put you off, the owner and his daughter are most welcoming and the food is not only superb but also excellent value for money. I also agree with the comments made that Manuel will not let you order to much or too little !! Give the Prawns in Garlic, Russian Salad, Canarian Potatoes and Homemade Croquets a go, you will not be disappointed. (The Iberico Ham is also incredible) They also have a specials board with a fish of the day and other delights, earlier this week the paella was excellent, a perfect sizes portion for €5!! So – in conclusion find the Centro Comercial Papagayo, walk up the steps past the Burger King and enjoy.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2012

In a slightly unlikely location in the Commercial Centre near to Playa Dorada,this tapas bar is frequented mostly by locals.The set menu for lunch must be the best value in Lanzarote.Albondigas,calamari,paella-all very fresh ,with bread & a drink included.Excellent!

“Excellent Tapas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2012

Last visited Taberna Godino in 2011, but have done tapas mid-afternoon there on all of our five trips to Lanzarote.
Large portions of excellent food and good value for money.
Manuel the owner will stop you ordering "too much",which was really honest (many other would have let you order pay and waste !!!).
This place gets really busy (and noisy) later in the afternoon with many locals making the atmosphere very Spanish !!
Best dishes for us are Puntillas de calamar, albondigas and croquettas.
We are going back this April, staying b&b at the Princesa Yaiza and will be trying Godino's in the evening.
