Had a great time here and the service was great !! Nice family run business and not pushy cause the food and service speak for themselves had the catch of the day and it just melt in your mouth and all for 12.00 euro main course will be visiting again for sure

The staff are very friendly and welcoming and the restaurant is set in a stunning area of Puerto Del Carmen by the harbour.

The restaurant opened in 1987 and is run by a family from Lanzarote. Glad we came across this on our recent visit.

El Poril came highly recommended and I definitely understand why. Staff aren't pushy at all which is always great. Food was amazing, the complimentary bread with mamas sauces go down a treat. Went for a lovely dinner and returned a few days later for lunch. Fab!

My girlfriend and I headed to the harbour for an evening meal, after being harassed on more than one occasion my restaurant owners it was reassuring as we were browsing the menu of El Poril outside that the owner in fact apologised for the other restaurant owners and invited us to take our time and browse the menu. With such a huge choice, and great looking menu we were seated. Our food was excellent, a welcome surprise was bread with various dips with our starters which I followed with a steak which was perfectly cooked exactly as i'd asked. Exemplary service from friendly waiters who were excellent. Highly recommended, its worth the walk past the other pushy restaurants!

Having tried a nearby restaurant for tapas the previous day, we were somewhat wary about trying this one, but on the basis of the reviews felt it was worth a try. The standard of food and service compared to its neighbour was no comparison; the service was excellent and friendly, we got bread and dips as a complimentary welcome, and the tapas were great. The deep fried baby squid were excellent. Would definitely recommend this one if you are in the harbour area.
