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 »
