Finca de Uga

You’ll have to take our word for it that the Finca de Uga is a very special place as it’s not open to the general public. We were privileged to be invited in for a tour of their premises, along with our friends at the Lanzarote Active Club. We were all keen for a peek behind the scenes at this award winning farm in Lanzarote.

Finca de Uga entranceFinca de Uga view

Primarily the Finca de Uga is a quesería, a dairy farm with cows, goats and sheep for livestock. What strikes you immediately is the passion behind this project, this is no ordinary farm, it’s landscaped and beautifully planted with large enclosures for the animals, who seem extremely content with life.

Lanzarote Restaurant Review, Barstro

When we heard that Viktor and Paul had left Casa Roja in Puerto del Carmen to open their own restaurant, we were there! Barstro is a bistro with a twist and situated in Oasis de Nazaret, Lanzarote.

Barstro SignageBarstro dining

The residents of Nazaret must be delighted with the opening of Barstro, apart from LagOmar and the sociedad if you want to eat out, it was previously a trip to La Villa de Teguise or further afield. This purpose built restaurant is wonderfully equipped, there’s a central dining room which is ideal for groups and special occasions plus an enclosed terrace area with views out across the countryside.

Paul has an amazing kitchen, we can’t wait to see what he’s going to create in there with a promise to change the menu every 2 weeks. We were given a full tour of the premises and they are impressive, the kitchen is open to the restaurant so you can see Chef at work.
