Our 4x4 driver who lived on the island recommended this place which is just back from the front and we passed some people coming out who gave it the thumbs up. Slight reservation in that we were the only people in there - huge restaurant. We needn't have worried. The owner / manager bought out a huge tray of fish... More

Looks good from the outside, nice terrace on the seafront with outside tables. Idyllic with the sound of waves lapping. Bread rolls brought out, followed by drinks then one dinner plate with lettuce, grated carrot, grated raw onion and a tomato sliced in four. We ordered a seafood platter for two with salad and fries. About half an hour after... More

Was here with my family. We wanted to go to a restaurant nearby but was full with 18 people queuing outside the door so we decided to go to another restaurant el marinero which was nearly empty. I now understand why. We spoiled 3 hours waiting for one peace of fish. No bread was offered, none come to the table... More

I absolutely loved the atmosphere of this small town of fishermen in Lanzarote. This restaurant in particular was recommended by us from one of the locals. We tried 7 local dishes between appetizers and main courses, and they were all excellent. The staff was super kind and the price/quality proportion was definitely good! Would recommend.

I was cycling around Lazarote and found this restaurant by accident. I wanted to try something local and I was recommended another one a few doors away but it was totally packed. This one was more expensive and looked a bit empty but I decided to give it a go and I was not disappointed as I think I had... More

Fresh fish dish we had was excellent and reasonably priced. The service was very good indeed and the restaurant was spotless, with great sea views. Highly recommended.

We ate here twice during our 10 night stay in Arrieta, it would have been more however, the opening times were not totally clear. Anyway, what a fabulous restaurant.! It has only 2 tables on the small veranda which has a wonderful view over the rocks and beyond. That said, if not on the veranda, you could be on the... More
