Lanzarote Restaurant Review, Bacco

We met friends in the old town area of Puerto del Carmen to try the new restaurant Bacco situated on calle Roque Nublo.

Bacco Lanzarote

The interior of Bacco is nicely furnished and air conditioned, with the bar running the length of the dining room. There’s a few tables outside on the terrace, plus the salon at the back which would be perfect for a group or special occasion.

Bacco Daily Specials

Bacco offer a variety of dishes on their menu, including daily specials, nibbles (tapas), starters and main courses from the land & sea. We decided to order a couple of nibbles rather than a starter, plus a main course. A box of warm bread was brought to the table with a cute selection of oil, salt, garlic butter and mojo mojo condiments.

Bacco Nibbles

When our nibbles of mini hamburgers and arepas arrived priced at only €2,10 each I wondered how we were going to fit our main course in! Miguel picked the chicken tikka masala arepa, and I ordered the black pig with beetroot version. These crunchy little pockets were well stuffed and delicious, served with an ample portion of fries. We both chose the lamb version of the mini hamburgers with roasted vegetables and honey. The burgers were a good size for “mini" ones, the lamb was tasty and succulent, again served with fries. read more »

Lanzarote Restaurant Review, Las Maretas

Our meal at Restaurante Las Maretas this week was definitely worth waiting for, and I’m not referring to the service.

Las Maretas Gambas La Santa

This restaurant has been tucked away in the corner of the Las Maretas commercial centre in Costa Teguise for closing in on 30 years, and yet this is the first time we’ve eaten there, despite it’s good reputation. Bizarrely one of the reasons that we’ve not eaten here before is their success, as you do need to book in advance, and quite often we dine out impromptu.

Las Maretas Angus Beef Strogonoff

There’s a full and very reasonably priced menu available at Las Maretas, but you should definitely listen to the many specials from Domingo before making your choice. We ordered the local prawns from La Santa which were stunning! The prawns had been fully shelled, with just their heads left for decoration, they were served hot on a bed of sea salt. The prawns off the specials menu were deliciously juicy and sweet, highly recommended. It’s also a large portion, around 30 of them so good for sharing. read more »

Bacco is open daily from 13:00 to 23:00 and situated on Calle Roque Nublo 22, and is a welcome addition to the Irish bars situated in that area of the old town harbour.

Bacco Keep Calm  Drink Wine

You can enjoy a selection of tapas or a full menu at Bacco for lunch and dinner, the menu caters for everyone with meat, fish and vegan options. The restaurant is air conditioned and they offer free Wi-Fi.

There are some interesting options on the menu, for example in the Nibbles / Tapas section we were intrigued about the black pig and beetroot, mini lamb burger with roast vegetables & honey, and rockfish ceviche priced from €2.10 a portion. On the main course menu “From The Sea" there were mussels in green curry and fish & chips with ginger tartar sauce or “From The Land" Iberian pork cheeks and roast suckling pig with apple, priced from €10.50. read more »

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 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.
