Eating in the courtyard was a pleasure but the food was very average. The soup and chaperones first course was so so, soup being bland and the chaperones (baby squid) a bit over done with too much batter. My wife's main course of hake a la plancha lacked flavour (probably frozen) although the portion was generous and my escalope also... More

This restaurant is housed in one of the well known Los Balcones buildings and is a stunning location with a leafy atrium inside.I went twice with a friend and once with my wife; we thought it easily the best dining experience of our time on the Island.The menu offers a wide choice of traditional food and there is a clear...

We had dinner here. We sat in the very cute courtyard with a little fountain and a bird singing the occasional song. Alternatively one can sit at the promenade towards the sea, perhaps most recommendable once afternoon traffic is gone. Our food was absolutely delicious and the Solomon "La Lonja" was prepared to perfection. Service was very friendly and quick... More

The restaurant was almost empty around 7 pm and that didn't look very inviting, but the menu was nice as well as the service, and we were happy to choose La Lonja for dinner. We actually went there twice! On our first time we shared an "Alfonsino" fish, which we got grilled with potatoes and some salad. The fish was... More

The main part of the restaurant is in the courtyard of an old patricians house. It is open to the street at each end, so in January it was a little chilly. We visited twice and had both meat and fish. Both were excellently cooked. The house wine was quite drinkable. Prices were good value - but everything is good... More

We only went for a light dinner, so couldn't sample the entire menu. But we can confirm that the service was prompt, polite and professional. They also do great omelettes - so the food hits the spot

My partner and I visited La Lonja unexpectedly on a Saturday night, we were lucky enough to get one of the last tables. The service was quick and efficient despite it being busy. We ordered starters of prawns in garlic, soup, 3 mains of rabbit in almond sauce, lamb and also a cauliflower cheese. All courses were well cooked, tasty... More

Very good atmosphere - reminded us of Cuba. Helpful service and food very good and we had an excellent wine. Our only problem was that their card machine wasn't working and my husband had to go to an ATM to get cash to pay the bill.

Thank rgvwes2n
