Lanzarote Restaurant Review, Restaurante DER

Anyone who accesses Puerto del Carmen via the main road from Tías, must have noticed the smart new Restaurante DER that has opened next to the pharmacy on Calle Juan Carlos I.

DER Restaurant InteriorDER Thai pastries

Restaurante DER opened in autumn 2014, they specialise in a menu that caters for food allergies & intolerances. The DER menu is clearly marked with a colour system to identify ingredients included in each dish, making it really easy to spot which ones to avoid if you are allergic to gluten, nuts, eggs, milk etc.

I visited Restaurante DER for the first time this month with friends who have food allergies. They were impressed with the menu, we took our time to decide and was helped by Chef Fred who came out of the kitchen to advise us. Fred is brilliant, his enthusiasm is obvious and he speaks excellent English. We were treated to a delicious portion of Thai pasties for a starter which had delicate pieces of chicken inside served with a sweet chilli sauce.  read more »

La Masia de Teguise

I’ve got to confess a little secret, we didn’t share this place with our readers as it was so good, we wanted to keep it to ourselves, just for a while!

La MasiaLa Masia Terrace Tables

La Masia de Teguise were offering a menu del día which we discovered just before summer last year, their 3 course menu was priced at €9.50 and in a beautiful setting. However, on Wednesday afternoons when the new menu for the week was launched, the price was an incredible €5 per person. It was very popular and a brilliant marketing concept, although we didn’t share it at the time, other than to a handful of people sworn to secrecy.

Lanzarote Restaurant Review - Fazz's Costa Teguise

You might remember we recently reviewed the set menu lunch at Fazz’s in Playa Blanca. We loved the food, but felt the service was average.

Fazz's Bar  Comfy Seating

We were recently out in Costa Teguise and looking for somewhere to eat when we spotted Fazz’s on the promenade there, so we headed inside for an evening meal.

This time both the food and the service were excellent!

The restaurant is a big one, with doors that open onto the beach prom, although they were closed at this time of year. There’s a huge central bar, with shelves that look as though they are bending under the weight of bottles, but we were assured they are meant to be like that! There’s a comfy seating area for people waiting for a table, and a raised dining section.  read more »

Made for Trade Tasting Menu at Cantina Teguise

Cantina Teguise has long been one of our favourite restaurants on the island, and so we had to go along when we heard about their “Made for trade” December supper tasting menu.

Tasting Menu   Chef Nathan

Working with co-owner Zoe, chef Nathan Holmes came up with a stunning 11 courses of earthy, wintery, concentrated taste!

There was a full house in The Secret Garden, and it was great to see so many friends, including Viktor and Paul on a busman’s holiday from their own restaurant Barstro, and Tracy and Derek from Brown Deli.  read more »

Lanzarote Restaurant Review, La Bohemia

We’ve heard lots of people mention the Argentinian restaurant La Bohemia in Costa Teguise, we tried it for ourselves recently.

La BohemiaLa Bohemia Morcilla

As we understood this to be a busy restaurant we made a reservation in advance for a table of six. We’d have been disappointed if we hadn’t, it was a weekday night and almost every table was occupied with predominantly Spanish clientele. Our table was in the conservatory by the entrance, we didn’t get off to a good start, I asked our waiter what was popular on the menu to which he exclaimed “Lady, we’re Argentinian!” and gestured wildly at  read more »
