The bar is located on the top of the Arrecife Gran Hotel on the 17th floor. We went there for a late lunch and the view. We took some spanish jamon and a vegetable lasagne. The food was good and good value for a bar,...but nothing special. The view, however, is fantastic, as you see a large portion of the island, the sea and all the way to Fuerteventura.More

Very nice lunch, but the main attraction is definitely the view, which is stunning. Can get a little bit warm when the sun starts appearing from round the side and shining directly into the restaurant.More

The Gran Hotel was an amazing cafe on the 17th floor. You ride up in a glass elevator but are unprepared by the panaromic views that the cafe offers. Great seats to take it all in and if you are lucky and go at sunset...its an additional treat. Staff are warm, friendly without being intrusive or rushing anyone along. We tried the poke bowls with fresh juice smoothies and they were delicious and it was an incredible deal Don’t miss this gem if you are in LanzaroteMore

Great location on top floor of Gran Hotel in Arrecife. The views are quite stunning. However everything went rather down hill after taking in the views. We actually ended up taking some photos and left ! Disinterested staff- getting a table , a menu and...service proved to be such a long and laborious process that we simply gave up !! Modern interior with less than 5 star furnishings. Coffee and cake was the preferred option but the choice of cakes on display was rather disappointing - they were most certainly not freshly made on the premises. In any event staff inertia made it impossible to achieve this ! Very disappointing and experience fell well short of expectations. Such a shame as dinner in the hotel restaurant earlier in the week was excellent.More

Visited on the last day of our holiday. Both opted for the €7 special that includes a posh club sandwich, a very well done coffee and a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice. Was all perfect.

Great coffee, great cake, yes you pay a bit more not as expensive as I was expecting given the view and both cake & coffee were exceptional. €3 coffee, €5 large slice of cake. The view - is amazing. We visited on a clear day...and got a table at the window. On 17th floor of hotel. Definitely visit.More

Visited on a lovely clear day so that we could enjoy the panoramic views. There is no doubt that the views are amazing, however the rest of the visit was very disappointing. As this bar is located in the Gran Hotel we were expecting a...much more luxurious setting, instead of the basic bare tables and plastic chairs. The service was extremely poor, we had to ask for a menu which was just shoved into our hand at the bar, and then waited for almost half an hour for a waiter to acknowledge us. In the end we just took some photos and left. Not what you would call 5 star service!!!More

We loved the views from 17th floor of the hotel. The bar area was a bit like a cafe. Thought for a 5 star hotel the surrounds should have been more luxurious.
