There are many natural phenomena in the island of Lanzarote. One of the most impressive ones is found inside the Timanfaya National Park. EL VULCAN GRILL is a natural barbecue improvised over a rock on top of an opening of with a depth of several meters where there is volcanic activity registered. This oven-grill was designed by César Manrique and it is really impressive to see how they place grills over this hole and to see how they cook all kinds of meats and fish, just like in a regular grill.
There is no fire, but if you place your hand you can get burned or lose your eyelashes if you get your head too close. I got close, since I was curious, and you can see from the picture the heat that comes out. This barbecue is next to the restaurant Los Diablos and behind the buses that take you to a guided tour of the volcanoes.
I recommend you to see this place after the volcano route. Greetings to all.
On my last trip to Lanzarote, while traveling the northern part of the island, we passed a small town called Arrieta, and we found this small restaurant located in its main street.
They have a new chef and exquisite food, innovative and traditional at the same time, at a good price.
The decoration is spectacular, they have a fish tank underneath our feet and it is really impressive. I recommend it to everyone that goes to Lanzarote.
It is a calm and charming corner that has a terrace over the water. It is located in Quemada Beach, a fishermen town that is small and welcoming, with beaches made of black rock.
They will surprise you with the different varieties of fish of the area, some delicious steamed cockles and “claclas”, a type of mollusk similar to goose barnacles and limpets that only live in Lanzarote and Chile and taste like the sea, delicious.
It is a special and calm corner where you can enjoy good food.
The Lagomar Restaurant-Museum (Lag-Omar, in fact) is found in the former home of Omar Sharif in the island of Lanzarote, a house that was designed for him by the local artist, César Manrique.
There are many stories that surround this spectacular house (the say that Omar lost it in a game of poker), but the truth is that it is one of the most beautiful legacies of César Manrique in the island of Lanzarote, and there are quite a few of them.
Today, the house is used for multiple purposes: as a museum, you are allowed to visit the rooms of one part of the house, and to admire the fascinating fusion with the volcano, where it is built. As a restaurant, in my personal opinion, it is one of the most charming corners of the island (although it is not cheap).
It is also possible to have a drink in Lagomar, since it becomes a disco by night. You can also sleep there, since it also functions as a holiday cottage. Lagomar is found in the slope of the Nazaret volcano, south of the town of Teguise.
Following the advice of minube, we went to the Casa Roja Restaurant in Puerto Calero. When we got there we were quite satisfied with what we saw: it is a pleasant and welcoming place. They sat us in a table next to the Rubicón Marine, and we were immediately struck by the delicate and sinuous romanticism, complete with romantic music.
The lighting, the atmosphere, the decoration and the excellent service made our night one of the most perfect ones my wife and I’ve had. I would like to mention the excellent (and I mean excellent) traditional dishes that the restaurant offers.
My wife and I let ourselves be advised by the maitre, who was extremely professional, and we were very satisfied with the fish and the wine he offered us. I recommend this restaurant to those couples looking for something different and full of pure romanticism. But I must say that the prices are quite elevated.
Anyway, I hope my review helps you when it comes to deciding where to go or when you are looking for something different.
Don’t forget to visit this restaurant in the Rubicón Marine, quality and taste, for people who appreciate things that are well done.
Potatoes, barnacles, and fish are surrounded by the delights of Lanzarote. This is a village with an energy that comes from being at the very end of Timanfaya Park, outside of all the bustle. This is a great little corner to get to know Lanzarote. The service was friendly and quick, the food, simple and rich. What more can you ask from a daytime restaurant?
The Bodega de Santiago is one of the most charming restaurants in Lanzarote, a recommended place for a special diner in the southern part of the island, in the town of Yaiza.
The restaurant is located outside of town, in a traditional house that has been restored and it has a fantastic terrace. The service is very good and they have a good selection of local wines (pay special attention to the white local wines). I recommend the sirloin with apricot sauce.
We spent a few days in Costa Teguise and discovered this little restaurant called De Pasta. The experience was good and it came at a reasonable price. They serve fresh pasta with various sauces that are very well-prepared, as well as original entrees. The service is friendly and attentive. Although the place is small it's still nice, with a few tables on the terrace and a visible kitchen. It's located in the seaside village. Special mention goes to the limoncello, which was just excellent.
El Guachinche de Luis is a restaurant located in the coast of Teguise (Lanzarote) in Avenida Islas Canarias, near the Maretas shopping mall.
It has delicious breakfasts and you can order the lunch menu, 7.5 Euros, with a choice of appetizer, main dish, bread, dessert/coffee and water.
They offer 100% homemade food. The kindness and service of Luis and his waitress is priceless.
It's in the area called El Golfo. It has a volcanic formation and there's a green lagoon. The restaurant is pretty much on the sea. You can dine on local fish and many other things. It's neither expensive nor cheap, somewhere in the middle. It's a cool place to eat while watching the sea. There's smoking permitted outdoors. I wouldn't mind going back.
We went as a family to this restaurant and didn't want to leave! I recommend it!! Excellent pizza with a thin base, as well as a wide variety of salads. It was exquisite and friendly. The desserts and coffee were very good. The best was the price! Excellent quality at an affordable price!
The place was heavenly, the waiters are not nice, the fish was good but presented poor, no salad , 3 potatoes and not potato chips here. To eat the portion of one person and pay 45 euros without dessert or coffee . I won´t return.
Following the recommendations of Minube.es, I ate at this fresh fish restaurant. It was no frills, but very good quality. The terrace had great views of the ocean and was cloaked in a breeze. The service was very friendly and professional. The fish of the day was €32, enough for 2 people. Price/quality ratio was good.
Among so many "touristy" places we finally found this little restaurant, which was very cozy and had just 6 tables, which really gave it a special charm. Everything there is grilled, meat and fish (fished fresh daily), and you can see them directly as they prepare it. It's a fantastic deal. We tasted marine mussels, shrimp croquettes and La Sama (a fish that they prepare AWESOMELY). It was a very good value for the money. I'll be going back, no doubt about it.
