Lanzarote Restaurant Review, The Farm

We needed to lunch in Puerto del Carmen this week, after a meeting in the resort, I’d heard some good reports about a new place that only opened 5 days ago, so we headed for The Farm in Matagorda.

The Farm

The Farm Country Kitchen & Bar to give it, it’s full name has a front entrance on the side of the C.C. Matagorda shopping centre, or you can enter through the back from the inside of the centre, it’s on the right as you enter from the car park.

The interior of The Farm is really cosy and inviting with a selection of eclectic distressed furniture & stacks of cushions, the staff also wear checked shirts to continue the farm style theme. Their aim is to provide good quality, home cooked food, and after eating our lunch we agree, they’ve nailed it. read more »

Beer Tasting at Nao

Nao is a small craft brewery that has opened in Arrecife. We had already tried their excellent beers in various bars around the island, so we wanted to meet the team behind them, and to see the brewing process.
