What a super find this restaurant is. Everything about it is first class. Very welcoming and friendly staff. The tapas menu is great, very varied. We love the padron peppers, canarian potatoes, and the grilled octopus is delicious. The local Lanzarote wine is excellent. Spotlessly...clean!More

Definitely worth a visit. In the years we have been coming to Playa Blanca we have eaten one end of the prom to the other and this is the best tapas we have eaten. Spanish owners and Spanish clientele tells you everything you need to...know. Food was superb and the service was efficient and relaxed. Have the tuna tartare and the Jalapeños and enjoy the bill. All round lovely experience and when we come back to Playa Blanca we will visit again.More

Our favourite restaurant on Lanzarote, and we live here and try lots of different restaurants around the island. Small restaurant with limited staff and all food cooked to order, so please be aware this is not a fast food restaurant. For a relaxing meal with...amazing food at good prices you will not find better. The menu now includes many many tapas options but also includes pizzas, burgers, steaks, fish and much more. We regularly ask the chef for things not on the menu, if they have the ingredients chef will cook it to order. Highly recommend the entrecote steak. Served more like a chateaubriand and cooked to perfection to your taste. I love the Cordon Bleu or Flaminquen which is not the regular menu but usually available if you ask. Also do a great value menu of the day during the afternoon which is fantastic value.More

Found this tapas bar while out walking in the area. We were the only ones in the bar but had the read previous reviews so felt happy to give it a go. The waiter was so welcoming and helpful explaining the menu. We ordered 3...tapas with plans to order more if needed .We didnt as the portions were generous. The goats cheese salad with caramelized honey onions was gorgeous, pork loin tender and baby squid perfectly cooked. We felt so pleased to have found this restaurant and will return soonMore

We had dinner here twice last week and really enjoyed both meals which were excellent value. The food was really fresh and tasty, particularly the grilled octopus and the roasted veg. As other reviewers have mentioned, portion sizes are very generous and we rather over...ordered, but that was entirely our fault! The restaurant was very busy both times but the service was still attentive and efficient - thank you!More

Ate here most nights, they had a wedding one day and were closed on Mondays otherwise would have been here every day. We loved the Tapas menu, only need the small plates as very good size. Lots of choice and did not choose anything from...the main menu. Reserved a table and this was sorted every day with our favourite wine on ice for us when we arrived. You must have the baby squid, padron peppers and the meatballs. All other dishes great but the veal a pork were not as good as the others. Great service, attentive without being overbearing, great atmosphere and ambiance. If i visit this location again i will be back. Thanks Carpe Diem for looking after us.More
