We decided to try this restaurant tonight after walking past last 2 nights. On arrival felt there was no enthusiasm in the staff but decided to give it a try. We felt rushed in choice from the start. Ordered starter of avocado prawns but only 2-3 prawns in unpeeled avocado. Then on ordering a steak felt this was discounted as... More

We had dinner here twice this week, everything we had was delicious, we would definitely go again if we return to Lanzarote. One tiny disappointment was unavailable desserts but there were plenty of other choices

Highly recommended if you're in the mood for... More

On the main street in Playa Blanca so no sea view but a value for money place to eat especially for the lunch time set menu. Efficient friendly service so contemplating a return visit one evening to try the grill.

We went here on a recommendation and were not disappointed. The place was already busy at 7 and we had a table inside. The staff were lovely and made a real fuss of our kids. Their food was all homemade and very tasty. The highlight was our steak, finished off by the side of our table and was the most... More

you can see that the staff work as a real team the senior waiter does the grilled meats, proper advice is given on the wines - they will try to talk you down from a Reserva Rioca to a Crianza Very good paella, I will try what else they have

A restaurant serving good quality food and in particular seafood we enjoyed garlic prawns and a chicken dish. A busy establishment used by regular clientele some had booked large tables for lunch. Busy but efficient.
