Lanzarote Restaurant Review - Esencia, Costa Teguise

Esencia is located in the Melia Salinas 5 star hotel in Costa Teguise, and is open to both people staying there and those who are not. We’d heard that they offered a special experience with excellent food, so we decided to treat ourselves, with friends, to a meal there to see for ourselves.

Esencia Entrance  Esencia Terrace

To access Esencia you need to walk through reception and toward the swimming pools, and if you then turn right, you will see the restaurant ahead of you. The building is very much like a traditional Canarian house, with an inside eating area as well as a large terrace which looks out over the beach. The ambience is lovely on a hot summer evening.

We had booked online through their website, and had received a total of 4 confirmations by email! When we arrived, however, the waitress didn’t seem to be expecting us, but as there was only one other person in the restaurant, we were able to choose the table we preferred on the terrace.  read more »
