We became a bit obsessed with octopus in the canaries- and this restaurant was absolutely INCREDIBLE. We ordered the mixed fish grill. All sorts of wonderful fish, octopus, mussels, prawns and potatoes with green and red canary sauce and tartare sauce. Eat here. You won't regret it. They gave us a free cocktail at the end which was lovely- strawberry... More

Small restaurant with nice views. It was a windy evening and we were directed to a sheltered table. Food was very nice and service was good. Would definitely visit again.

The restaurant was busy and clearly is quite popular. The staff were friendly and the service was good but the food was very average. The garlic prawns were quite bland, and the vegetables, lamb chops and tuna over cooked. The house red wine however was quite nice.

Visited twice in our 4 day visit for lunch, lovely friendly staff who weren't pushy. Grilled sardines were outstanding as were the rest of the tapas we tried and we will defo call in next time we visit Lanzarote.

The front of house gentleman at this restaurant was a bit less pushy than some of his younger counterparts at adjacent restaurants and even elicited a recommendation from a departing customer who was clearly an English exPat living in Lanzarote who confirmed he had eaten there for years and it was very good (although also confirming there were a lot...

One of several restaurants in this part of the harbour, with a traditional feel around the decor. The seafood paella was tasty & plentiful - with local wine suggested by the staff complimenting it well. Slightly smaller than some of its neighbours - recommended.

Went here to escape the sun as the restaurant is nicely shaded and looks down on the port. The calamari (squid Roman style!) was lightly fried and tasty. The salads were fine, but on the smaller side and the goat's cheese that came with the Caprese salad was rather tasteless. Service was brisk, and overall prices were reasonable.

This is a nice location, not quite overlooking the harbour, but almost. Starters were fine, but we chose lamb for main courses and were not quite happy with the result. Service is excellent and had we chosen the fresh fish then it might have been a better review.

Visited during a heavy rain shower after deciding we would eat here as we walked past in the morning. Selected a range of fabulous tapas dishes, including gorgeous garlic gambas, grilled sardines which were amazing, calamari (my wife's favourite and she said the best crispy batter she's ever had), and a gorgeous paella as a shared dish. Perfectly cooked, nice... More
