Top Restaurant recommendations in Lanzarote

There are plenty of good restaurants on the island of Lanzarote but here are my favourites to date.

Almacen De Sal - Situated right on the sea front promenade in the centre of Playa Blanca, this restaurant is my very favourite. This restaurant used to be an old salt repository so has bags of character and charm. The service is second to none as is the cuisine. There is an extensive menu to choose from and I have many favourites on the menu including the onion soup, advocado with prawns, steak, fresh fish, paella, to name but a few. This restaurant also has live piano music and is very child friendly yet also romantic.

Restaurante Playa Quemada - Playa Quemada. We would definately recommend this restaurant if you are prepared to go a little off the beaten track! From Playa Blanca is it just after Yaiza and there is a right turn that takes you down to Playa Quemada. Don’t wear your high heels as the car park leaves a little to be desired! This restaurant serves fabulous food and there is always excellent fresh fish available. Booking is definately advisable.

Don Camillo - Playa Blanca, on the sea front promenade towards the harbour. Don Camillo offers excellent international cuisine with an extensive menu. There are three different kitchens, including a steak grill and pizzeria. The T-bone steak is wonderful but don’t order it unless you haven’t eaten for a while!

La Era - Yaiza, behind the Town Hall. This restaurant is open all week from 1.00pm till 11.00pm and booking is advisable. La Era is in the lovely little village of Yaiza, set in a 300-year-old farmhouse with gardens, courtyards and outbuildings restored by Cesar Manrique into a fascinating and beautiful place to eat and drink. La Era serves authentic Canarian cuisine as well as International dishes.

La Bocaina - next to the petrol station in Playa Blanca, on the right, travelling toward Playa Blanca. This restaurant has been around for 40 years although now under new ownership. The soups, sauces are all homemade and prepared to order. Therefore do not come to this restaurant if you are in a hurry! First class Cuisine and this restaurant is closed on Mondays.

El Bodegon Del Mano - Playa Blanca. This is a superb restaurant for steak. This is a small restaurant run by Chef Jesús Martínex Lebrusán and is excellent. The Chef himself cooks and is the waiter too – he has one assistant helping in the kitchen. It offers a very small but exclusive menu and we thoroughly recommend the steak in pepper sauce, mushroom sauce or chestnut sauce. This is a quiet restaurant, probably not suitable for very young children and is usually closed on Mondays. It is located in the pedestrianised shopping area behind the sea front. Walk past the Marcial Supermarcado and the restaurant is on your right-hand side, not directly after Marcial Supermarcado but the next right. It is situated underneath Restaurant Romantica. It is recommended that you book this restaurant prior to going as it can get very busy.

LagOmar - Oasis de Nazaret – at the top of the village, off the road between Tahiche and Teguise. If you´re looking to dine in dramatic surroundings then LagOmar is hard to beat as this restaurant, serving modern international food, used to be part of former film star Omar Sharif’s home – built into the side of a disused quarry by two German architects in the style of Cesar Manrique.
The menu never seems to change that much but the location itself makes up for that and the quality of cooking is excellent.

Amura - Far end of the marina at Puerto Calero – which is a ten minute taxi journey from Puerto del Carmen. Amura enjoys a great sea front location in the marina at Puerto Calero and offers top quality international cuisine in up market surroundings.
Like many other leading restaurants, Amura has a New Years Eve spectacular planned – which involves fireworks, free bar and live music and dancing. Excellent for a special occasion.
Aromas, Calle La Laja, Playa Blanca, - Up market international restaurant serving interesting modern twists on traditional classics – such as marinated sardine salad.

The Los Hervideros restaurant , Playa Blanca - located in the back street called El Marisco which is not far from the Town Square. It is a typical Spanish restaurant and the food is fabulous, well cooked and freshly prepared consequently there is often a signification wait for your meal to be served. Excellent value and well worth seeking out if on holiday in this resort. It often gets busy and as there are only about 18 tables it may be advisable to book the day before.It is different from many of the restaurants around and about. Caters mainly for couples or small groups, not in our opinion a kiddies place. It is closed on Sunday evenings.

So, please enjoy my top 10 Lanzarote Restaurant suggestions and feel free to try them out for yourselves! I still have many restaurants to try around Lanzarote, but as I am a villa owner in Playa Blanca, I will be in a position to try more as time goes by and then pass on my reviews to the future guests of my Villa.
