Lanzarote Restaurant Review, Restaurante Verde Mar, La Santa

We had a fabulous meal recently and couldn’t wait to share it with you!

We met Debbie Jones, the owner of Restaurante Verde Mar at the Camel Media Group Seminars in Puerto del Carmen. I had seen the sign for the Verde Mar off the main road in La Santa but had not visited the restaurant before. When Debbie contacted me to say she had taken on two chefs we knew, called Dave and Andre, we were keen to head over and taste the new menu.

The restaurant is situated right in the centre of La Santa, in the second row to the sea just behind the Pro Bike shop, with easy parking in the street. We found the entrance to the restaurant very welcoming with plant pots and candles leading up the steps. The place was buzzing, it was a good job we had reserved a table, as there was only one vacant.

Verde Mar Interior Verde Mar Specials Board

Debbie brought over the daily specials board and menus and I found it really difficult to decide as there were lots of dishes taking my fancy. Having struck a deal with Miguel that I could taste his food we opted for Verde Mar fishcakes from the menu and crunchy calamares from the specials for starters. The main courses we selected were both off the specials board, mixed fresh local fish platter and fillet steak with peppercorn sauce. I loved the personal touch of children’s drawings in  read more »

Lanzarote Football, C D Laguna 0 Lanzarote 1

7th February 2011

Things are looking pretty good for Lanzarote at the moment. Top of the league and unbeaten in the last nine games with the last three matches producing maximum points and not conceding a goal in their last four outings.echedey 060211 UD Lanzarote

The visit to Club Deportiva Laguna was never going to be an easy trip. The Tenerife side had a terrible start to the season losing their opening two home matches but since then they have obtained maximum points in all of their home games.

The match began at a good pace with the home side having a good chance in the opening couple of minutes though Iván Arzola’s strike was wide of its target. In the 5th minute defender Guayo hit a fierce strike which beat the Tenerife keeper but the ball struck the bottom of the post and away to safety.

The Rojillos then began to get their passing game together and with the return of Vladi partnering ex Real Madrid player Jotha in the centre of the midfield moving the ball around at pace making their opponents chase the game whilst tiring the opposition in the process. This combination is going to prove critical  read more »
