visited here for Saturday night dinner, first night of holiday. Shared a lovely goats cheese bruschetta and then a lasagne and a pollo milanese. All delicious, especially the bruschetta. Unfortunately, closed now for Xmas holidays so won't be able to go again this trip :(

Wow, what a great wood fired pizza. Homemade rustic pizza with a wide choice of amazing toppings. Great service and great ambiance. I would also highly recommend the sharing antipasti.

We arrived outside and the lady waitress saw us, we walked up the steps so clearly we were after a table but she just totally ignored us. Once she did finally acknowledge us and seat us she was so moody and seemed like we were putting her out! It took ages for her to come back and take our order,... More

A family-run restaurant serving excellent wood-fired sourdough pizzas. We ate here regularly on our recent holiday and were never disappointed. I particularly liked the beetroot & cheese starter! We will be back next year!

A new venture from the same team that ran one of London's iconic Italian restaurants.Boasting Lanzarote's only wood-fired oven you can enjoy a variety of home-made Artisan breads, Pizzas, as well as wood-roasted meats and vegetables. We also make our own fresh pasta daily, and have a wide selection of home-made desserts. Our beautiful terrace has some of the best sea-views that Playa Blanca has to offer, and together with spectacular sunsets, and a chilled candlelit ambiance, it is simply the perfect place to relax and enjoy your evening.
