“A mixed Grill in Lanzarote”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

We just happened on this bar/restaurant last week. We would not have bnoticed it but for the sound of music coming from it as it is about 25 yards off the main street on your left as you head from the Biosfora Shopping Centre to the Old town. On the day we were there there was a rugby game between Ireland and Fiji and where better than to watch in an Irish Bar. It was the only place outside of Ireland where there was a mixed grill on the menu and it was great. We had their home made soup=one french onion and one oxtail-they genuinely were home made and very tasty.
Of all the Irish bars we went to in Lanzarote this was the best by far. It had Irish staff and they had that cheeky friendliness and sense that only the Irish have-you just cannot buy it. The mixed grill was as good as you get in Ireland...better in fact. After the game which Ireland won the live music started again. All music is live and you can even go up and sing yourself....not to be reccommended after a few of their very large whiskies. It seems they have live music every night and great jamming sessions but a word of caution: time passes quickly and we left at 4am and the bar was still rocking. We came back a number of days and were given a loyalty cdard giving generous vdiscounts on food and drink. We met one of the owners Audrey who is a larger than life character with an infectious laugh. Her husband Clint is a well known singer in Lanzarote and performs here as well. He is excellent as were a Sinatra and Neil Diamond singers. We heard a guy called Charlie (Chaplin?) who was one of the better singers during the week.
We called on one of the days at 930am and were tempted by their offer of breakfast. Suffice to say you need a big appetite as it was awesome even for us Americans. We visit Ireland a lot and the best compliment we can give this place is that it felt like we were in Ireland.

“Unforgetable night-a REAL Irish Bar”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

I walked into this bar last night which happened to be the first night of it being taken over by an Irish couple. There are so many phony Irish bars it was a great surprise to find a real one-a true gem. When we arrived in it was just to have a quick dring as it was near our hotel. Having being made welcome we perused the menu and were delighted to see genuine Irish bacon and cabbage even though we did not order that. We had the prawn cocktail and potato skins starters, a steak and a fish maiin course at which stage we were too full for desserts! The food was excellent value (32 euro for two) and you were made feel welcome by the pleasant Irish staff. There were two singers Charlie and I think Adrien. They had great rapport with the guests with a lot of typical Irish banter. As it was the new owners first night we were treated to champagne on the house. I am not sure if it was just an opening night promotion but pints were only 2 euro. Their official opening is next Saturday and we will be back for that! In addition to the main bar/restaurant there are two downstairs terraces and upstairs is a great restaurant/function room with lovely ambience. All in all we spent about three hours there and after a week so far in Lanzarote this was by far our bgest experience. WE know the new owners will do very well .
