Café de la Plaza in Puerto Calero

For tea aficionados like me, you really have to visit this delightful cafe at the back of the marina in Puerto Calero. There’s a great choice of teas available and what’s more, they’re served in china cups! I can’t think of anywhere else that offers this in Lanzarote, and of course  read more »

Lanzarote Restaurant Review, Blue Horizon

We were initially disappointed on arrival at the Blue Horizon, it was our first visit and we had heard great things about this restaurant situated at the front of the Sol Lanzarote hotel.

The reason for our disappointment was because the sushi menu was not available at 1pm, we’d been looking forward to this lunch for ages, so with a heavy heart we started to browse the tapas menu. All was not lost, there were actually some very different and interesting options in the tapas selection, and despite the modern furnishings and beachfront location, prices started from as little as €3.25.

Top 7 places to drink Guinness in Puerto del Carmen

Everybody knows that Puerto del Carmen is the Irish capital of Lanzarote and since St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner, the black stuff is bound to be flowing in copious amounts soon enough.

Guinness with a viewPatiently waiting for the Guinness

The whole serving ritual has had me mesmerised for years and I admit that it certainly was an acquired taste for me.  For the un-initiated, or the occasional Guinness drinker like myself, all pints might taste the same. "Sacrilege!" I hear the Guinness lovers' say.

So I decided to ask my regular Guinness drinking friends where you can drink the best pint in town. The answers varied considerably as the choice of Irish establishments is numerous.

Bearing in mind that I am no expert and that this was a quite unscientific approach, here are the top 7 places for a good pint of the black stuff in Puerto del Carmen (in alphabetical order):  read more »

Lanzarote Restaurant Review - Bogavante, El Golfo

Sunday lunches are important here in Lanzarote – it’s a time to unwind and enjoy a long, slow meal in the company of friends or family.

One of our favourite places to go is El Golfo – the village has many restaurants, and they are renowned for their fresh fish. We recently chose Bogavante for a meal with some very good friends, who were staying in Playa Blanca.

Bogavante opens directly onto the ocean and the outside terrace is actually on the beach. We were lucky to find a table there – we hadn’t booked, but we did arrive early at about 1PM. As you walk into the restaurant, you go past a large tank with live lobsters in it, and three of us made an instant decision to go for the speciality of the house.

We were surprised and impressed when not one, but two Lamborghinis pulled up outside while we were there, and their owners came into the restaurant as well. We didn’t even know there were two Lambos in Lanzarote!


For starters, we ordered various mixed plates – Lapas, local cheese and smoked salmon tostadas. The lapas (limpets in English) were  read more »
