How Many Bars And Restaurants Are There In Lanzarote?

We were asked this recently, and we thought it was a really interesting question, so we found the answers!

The simple answer is that there are 1764 Bars on the island and 982 restaurants. If you wanted to visit them all, and could manage three a day, it would take you about two and a half years.

The split by municipality looks like this:

It’s also interesting looking at the evolution of the numbers over the years. Here are some highlights:  read more »

We are blessed with an abundance of good restaurants in Lanzarote, we have a waiting list of those we’re still haven’t eaten at, and we can finally cross off Los Aljibes de Tahiche.

Lanzarote Restaurant Review, La Gula Gastrobar

La Gula Gastrobar caught our attention when it snatched the No1 TripAdvisor spot for the top restaurant in Costa Teguise.

La Gula Gastrobar

Having visited last night, we can see why it’s proving popular and it’s a welcome addition to our recommended dining list for that holiday resort. La Gula is situated on the edge of Pueblo Marinero, the front entrance is next to the Tourist Information Office, and the back entrance is in the walkway through to the square. 

La Gula Decor

The restaurant is inviting from the outside, I liked the cosy decor there are two dining rooms with an open kitchen, although the lighting is a little on the bright side. The staff are very welcoming, we were a group of six so our waiter explained that the dishes are created to share between two people. He recommended that we select 9 dishes to share, and helped with the portion sizes.  read more »

Lanzarote Restaurant Review - Toro, Puerto del Carmen

This one has been on our list for some time, and we finally got there over the weekend. Toro is in an unusual position, on the roundabout at the top of Calle Reina Sofia, in Puerto del Carmen, where you can go one way towards Puerto Calero, and the other towards the airport.

The restaurant is owned and run by award winning chef Luis León and his son Roberto and is famous for its grilled meats. There’s plenty of room in the restaurant and tables are well spaced out - we were seated on the patio area, which is well protected from any wind with glass windows. Outside, there is an open air patio, so you can sit under the sun or stars, and an area where smokers are welcome.  read more »

Lanzarote Restaurant Review - The Harbour Club, Puerto Calero

Despite what sounds like a very British name, The Harbour Club is actually Dutch owned, and several people have suggested we try it since it opened a few months ago.

I had walked past before to read the menu, and I thought their brunch looked really interesting, but we arrived with friends at lunchtime, so we went with the lunch menu.

Lanzarote Restaurant Review, La Bodega de Santiago

I have waited two years to try La Bodega de Santiago situated in Yaiza, we dined at this restaurant on the edge of the Timanfaya Mountains at the weekend, and it did not disappoint.

Bodega de Santiago

This restaurant is situated in a 200 year old house, which was named after Santiago Eugenio who was one of the first people to welcome visitors to the Montañas del Fuego (Fire Mountains). The spectacular rubber tree which dwarfs the building provides a wonderful dappled shade for dining alfresco beneath. On cooler days or evenings, there are tables within a variety of small dining rooms inside.

Bodega de Santiago

It was a glorious summer day, so we sat on the terrace and I was pleased to see the tables were well spaced out. We enjoyed a caña served in cute glass jars whilst we waited for our friends to join us. Our waiter described the specials in addition to the standard menu and we decided to order three starters to share between the four of us. These were off the special menu and included carpaccio of Lanzarote tuna with sea snails, prawns from La Santa and a lobster tail salad.  read more »
