After a visit to the caves we dropped by for a leisurely lunch. Had a plate of baby squid and one of salpichon (marinated octopus) both delicious and very affordable. Been gong here for at least 20 years and never had a bad meal

Great service, good food and wine. Seafood specialists. We visited 3 times and will be back next time we visit. Situated at the far end of Arrieta looking across the road to the sea. Just lovely.

Been here for couple of meals thus far. Service and food excellent. Paella outstanding. Fish special and steak are equally good as are wines and beers. Seats inside and out. Very clean. Whilst we have paid more than some other local restaurants value for money is excellent- fillet steak €13 and fish special €15- total bill €47 inc drinks starter... More

Nice restaurant in between Punta Mujeres and Arrieta. Had good wine, fresh fish and they did smaller plates for our toddler (she had Spanish omelette on this occasion). Sat inside and was glad to have when he wind picked up in the evening (March!).

Had fresh fish and the size was huge. Really delicious, my colleague had steak which was only average. Very fast service, perhaps too fast. Three different holiday makers recommended this place to me.

This restaurant is very close to our apartment so very convenient for dinner! As a result we have eaten there twice already! The restaurant is very close to the sea and tastefully decorated inside. On our first visit my husband had the octopus salad as a starter and said it was the best he had ever eaten. The fresh fish... More

We have been going to this restaurant for a number of years and although it has changed hands in the last couple of years it is still a nice place to go for lunch. The large patio out front used to be fully open and with the sea just on the other side of the road it was nice to... More

The welcome we had every night at this restaurant was excellent, made to feel like royalty after our first visit! So ate here several times in a week. Always generous portions, fish beautifully cooked and quick friendly service. Fresh bread and Canarian sauces offered whilst we chose our meals, and different complimentary liqueurs to help digest the bill! Great value,... More

Typically Spanish right on the sea and serving wonderful fish. Lots of outside seating if the sun is shinning, but also indoor area. Superb fish, I recommend the Octopus the best I have ever eaten. Well priced good service. A must.

We found this restaurant by lucky chance and ate here every evening for the week we were on Lanzarote. Superb fish cooked perfectly and my wife enjoyed the meat menu. A very jolly restaurant with friendly efficient staff. Great sea view and very reasonable prices. Gluten free (sin gluten) no problem

Thank Paul S
