Lanzarote Restaurante Review, Amber II

It was thanks to Jo, one of our readers that we tried the Amber II Indian Restaurant in Costa Teguise, not that Miguel ever needs encouraging to try a new curry restaurant in Lanzarote – every day could be a curry day as far as he’s concerned, but we hadn’t visited this one which has been open for 4 months as yet.

C C Playa de Teguise dayC C Playa de Teguise night

Amber II is situated on Avenida del Jablillo, in the C.C. Playa de Teguise which is upstairs from the popular Chinese Golden City and near Saxo’s. There’s lots of competition for good value food in this area and most employ PR’s to try and entice you in, this is also the case with Amber, don’t let that put you off.

Lanzarote Restaurant Review, Los Valles

We’ve passed the Restaurante Mirador de Los Valles on many occasions over the last few months, it always looks busy if the car park is anything to go by, plus we’ve heard a few good reports. This weekend our curiosity got the better of us and we ventured in with friends to find out for ourselves.

DonkeyRestaurante Los Valles Entrance

The donkey at the entrance was pleased to see us for a nose rub as we walked from the car park to the restaurant. It was around 13:30 on a Sunday and only a few tables were taken, we were offered a prime table right in the picture window overlooking the village of Los Valles. The weather wasn’t fit to sit outside due to the occasional and sudden showers of rain, although it was still a bright and sunny day.
