Lanzarote Restaurant Review, El Navarro

We were dining out with friends and they wanted to eat at one of their favourite restaurants in Lanzarote before flying back to the UK. El Navarro is No1 on TripAdvisor for Costa Teguise, it was our first experience, we hadn’t dined here before.

Our timing was lousy as we didn’t get to meet Ramon, apparently he’s just retired and left the restaurant in the capable hands of his daughter Irache and her husband who is the chef. There is a photo mounted on the wall inside the restaurant of Ramon running with the bulls on the mainland, we understand that his front of house personality will be missed.

When we posted our Gazpacho recipe last week, a reader immediately asked if we had a recipe for this dish, which is probably the most popular tapa in Lanzarote – prawns with garlic.

Let’s talk about the terracotta dish first – it’s not essential, but you can buy them all over Lanzarote, and they add an authentic touch.

Gambas al Ajilo

200ML of olive oil (not extra virgin)

Large knob of butter

750g raw prawns peeled and de-veined (feel free to butterfly them if you want)
