“Excellent Food and Service with Lovely Friendly Staff”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

Lovely food and the best service and atmosphere, very friendly staff, they are so helpful and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. Staff made you feel special and always remember us every time we come back. Have visited here every holiday for the past several years. Would highly recommend Universo Restaurant, ate there nearly every night and there is so much choice on the menu. Restaurant is always busy which is a good sign. Give it a try when visiting Puerto Del Carmen you will not be disappointed. Lovely cocktails and very generous portions in both food and drink !!!

“Excellent as always”
Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I have been visiting lanzarote for many years and always visit Universo. The staff have remained mainly unchanged for many years which is a good sign this day and age. The food is always well presented hot and in plentiful supply. Drinks are no more expensive then any other places. Avoid the fancy cocktails that are not cheap wherever you go and you'll pay the usual €3 a pint. The food especially the specials on the board outside is excellent.. I have had the leg of lamb special and it is absolutely gorgeous. The meat just melts in the mouth and is served with either chips potatoes, canarian potatoes and veg. Ask for extra gravy if your the sort of person that likes it and they will oblige. A really lovely busy Restuarant with friendly staff and free wifi if you need it also

“Let Down”
Reviewed June 24, 2014 via mobile

Was really excited to try here as I am a big fan of tex-mex and the restaurant looked nice from the outside however the food didn't live up to expectations.

For starters the drinks were very expensive (alcoholic ones) and although the cocktails may have a good size I couldn't justify over €8 for one!

Also the food was poor, for main my partner had the fish platter on which the mussels were off and the tuna gave us both an odd allergic reaction upon eating it. Some of the chips were also undercooked.

I had burritos which turned out to be enchiladas and came with no other extras ie salad or rice which you'd expect for the price.

All in all was not impressed as I had high hopes.
