A slightly better Italian than the total disaster that's Afrodite just a couple of yards away. If watery tomato sauce with a dash of pesto is your thing go for it. If not, avoid. Hoping to find an Italian in Playa Blanca that's not horrible. Definitely not in the marina.

Great spot on the marina, walked up without reservation and lucky enough to sit overlooking the bay. Swift service as we were one of the first diners and enjoyed delicious garlic prawns, fettuccine al Nona and steak on hot plate. All was delicious, with bill for two without alcohol coming to £61 with desserts (also delicious). Very popular, always full.... More

We have been twice recently which suggests the restaurant is okay but to us it also reflects the below average standard of restaurant in the Marina Rubicon area. It is a busy restaurant, there is usually a queue of customers trying to get in. On one occasion the weather was hot and we were pleased to be outside on the... More

On a cool March evening, we took a table indoors and looked forward to some good food. As the the title suggests, it was average - my wife enjoyed her pizza, my steak was good. Sadly we never had desert as we never got offered despite asking for the menu, I appreciate it was busy but service was poor. Would... More

Menu extensive although I don't think it's changed in the 8 years we have been going. Best pizza in the marina. Attention excellent staff really friendly. A great on but recommend you book.

Staff were polite enough and fairly quick service but the fish looked unappetising and the langoustine I was served drained a kind of grey liquid which did not look healthy. It wsa by far the most expensive restaurant we went to.

We shared a pizza and 2 beers. The beers were ice cold and well received as the day was quite warm. The pizza was poor. The dough was under cooked and the toppings tasteless. The service was a bit surly. The best part of our experience was the view of the marina and the cold beer. No reason to go... More

We were two retired couples. We were staying in a local hotel and eating out every night, so we were trying different restaurants. We could not agree on a particular restaurant on this evening and really went there because we were getting fed up with wandering around and trying to find a restaurant we had not visited previously. We were... More

Tried to get in this restaurant the night before but failed as was so busy.....well worth the wait. The best meal we have eaten yet and most probably ever on Lanzarote. I couldn't decide what to have after watching all the gorgeous food coming past us, so gave the waiter 3 choices and to surprise me. It was stunning. Staff... More
