Not long got back from a weeks holiday in Lanzarote. The purple turtle was our first stop as we couldn't get in the villa for a while. The gent behind the bar remembered us from the previous year which I thought was great. He sold himself and the bar really well. We had breakfast 4 times at the purple turtle, nowhere else really compares at all. All the staff were great and couldn't do enough for you. The reason I have only given very good is because I didn't really rate the evening meal we had there but those looking for good old English food while away should eat here. Kepp up the good work guys.

We found the purple turtle a few days into our stay and then we used this place as our local. A family run place who really welcome you and make you want to return. The food is of good quality and great value, the beer is served in frozen glasses and only 2euro for a large one, spirits and wine are also good value compared to other places. The purple turtle also shows all live sport on numerous tv screens. There are always plenty of staff around so the service is first class, they are all friendly and very helpful with any information you may need. Although we ventured into town on most evenings the purple turtle was always our starting point and when we return it will be next time as well. Summary, a great pub/restaurant like home from home.

This is a wonderfully run restaurant by a Welsh family. The food is typically British ranging from fish and chips to curry with the usual good old english breakfast. Portions are above average and desserts a dream.
Nothing is too much trouble, from adjusting orders according to taste or simply advising the best trips and shopping on the island.
There is a free pool table and wi-fi available to clients as well as numerous television screens showing the latest in sport and other events.
Tried other restaurants which were good but we always ended up back at The Purple Turtle.
A visit here is a must for all.
