Lanzarote Restaurant Review, Restaurante Playa Blanca

I had a lovely lunch in Playa Blanca yesterday.Restaurante Playa Blanca I was visiting the South of the island and looking for somewhere to eat a fresh fish dinner with a cold glass of white wine before a chill out with a swim and relax on the beach. Having read recommendations for Casa Pedro I thought this could be an opportunity to try that restaurant but standing outside reading the menu with my friend it did nothing for us. We decided that we should walk along the front as a couple of others had caught our eye earlier in the day.

Restaurante Playa Blanca had a menú del día for €9, a varied tapas menu and some chef’s specials. The front of the restaurant was busy with a friendly ambience, we spotted a table and decided this was our lunch spot for today. Our waiter Sandy welcomed us and asked if we’d like a drink first or the menu which we appreciated, sometimes you can be sat for a while considering what to eat with no drink. Two very large glasses of cold vino blanco seco arrived whilst we contemplated what to eat.

I was tempted with the menú del día, there was a fish option which would have satisfied my craving but the chef’s specials had caught my eye.  read more »
