My Top Ten Lanzarote Restaurants, Villa Jasmin

Becky is the owner of Villa Jasmin a lovely villa available for holiday rental situated in Faro Park, Playa Blanca. Becky’s produced the Villa Jasmin guide to her favourite top ten Lanzarote restaurants which she shares with her guests and now Lanzarote Information readers! Becky told me that there are so many good restaurants in Lanzarote and is quick to point out that she’s still working her way around them, these are her favourites so far and predominantly based around the Playa Blanca area……

Almacén de la Sal, Playa Blanca

Almacén de la Sal Situated right on the sea front promenade in the centre of Playa Blanca, this restaurant is my very favourite. This restaurant used to be an old salt repository so has bags of character and charm. The service is second to none as is the cuisine. There is an extensive menu to choose from and I have many favourites on the menu including the onion soup, avocado with prawns, steak, fresh fish, paella, to name but a few. This restaurant also has live piano music and is very child friendly yet also romantic.

Pizzería Don Camilo, Playa Blanca

Situated on the sea front promenade towards the harbour. Don Camillo offers excellent international cuisine with an extensive menu. There are three different kitchens, including a steak grill and pizzeria. The T-bone steak is wonderful but don’t order it unless you haven’t eaten for a while!

Tapas in Costa Teguise

Cartel Ruta Tapas

Last September saw the first “Ruta de Tapas” organised in Costa Teguise in celebration of Día Internacional del Turismo, for 3 days you could call at a selection of bar / restaurants in the resort to sample their local tapas dishes with a drink for €2.50. Miguel and I thought this was a fantastic promotion and on the Friday evening headed into Costa Teguise for our tapas crawl, we had a great time and wanted to tell you which establishments took part so that you know where to go and try tapas in the resort.  read more »

Lanzarote Restaurant Review - Taiwan, Arrecife

Taiwan Restaurant, Arrecife, Lanzarote

The Taiwan is situated in a back street, almost directly opposite the Arrecife Gran Hotel. The exterior is typically ornate in the Chinese style, and the interior is nicely laid out, with clean table cloths and comfortable chairs, although when it get’s busy, it can feel a little crowded.  read more »

Lanzarote Restaurant Review - Villa Toledo, Costa Teguise

This is a fabulous bar restaurant that you could easily miss in Costa Teguise. The best way to get to it is along the sea front promenade – it’s situated just before Playa Bastian when you’re coming from the main town.

Villa Toledo  Swimming Pool

The location is fantastic, right on the sea front, and there is an upper bar and snack area, and a lower restaurant terrace which overlooks the sea and the restaurant’s own swimming pool. This area is covered in with “sailcloth” which creates a nice atmosphere and light.  read more »
