If I could give this a seven star I would. Contemporary, classy atmosphere, and food to die for. Seven of us as a family, I started with the asparagus with local salmon and hollandaise... perfect. We went with the daily special which was a twelve hour slow cooked iberian pork, it melted in the mouth. Expect small portions like a... More

We had a fantastic meal here to celebrate my birthday. The food and wine were exceptional especially the slow roasted black pig. The chocolate mouse was to die for. Anabel was very attentive without being intrusive. The building is quirky but stunning and Anabel's family paintings and pictures are on display downstairs. L'Ortolan in the sunshine.

Just back from Lanzarotte and thinking about all the restaurants we visited ready to write reviews. This one is a puzzle to me. The amuse-Bouche was lovely and a perfect start. The lady serving ( the owner?) was charming and very keen we should enjoy it. The starter was equally good and the small glass of dry white wine complemented... More

Nothing special about this place as a venue and the food was incredibly disappointing. Seems stuck in the nouvelle cuisine past, with reasonable presentation, but the food lacked bite and edge. Had the suckling pig, which was okay, but presented with a few swirls which turned out to be potato puréed out of all taste, and a tiny cauliflower floret... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant on the last day of our holiday and were not disappointed. We tried to get a table the previous night but the restaurant was full so would recommend making a booking before you go. The restaurant is easy to find just a couple of roads back from the marina and well worth a... More

We visited the restaurant in November there and I cannot recommend it enough. There was a lovely atmosphere and the hostess was so friendly but yet kept her distance whilst we eat. I had the suckling pig and it was divine, although being Irish I was hoping for proper mashed potato portion and merely got a smudge of it on... More

After reading about this place in Tripadvisor ranking number one we were quite disappointing. Service good but food less than average.
