Lanzarote Restaurant Review, Bacco

We met friends in the old town area of Puerto del Carmen to try the new restaurant Bacco situated on calle Roque Nublo.

Bacco Lanzarote

The interior of Bacco is nicely furnished and air conditioned, with the bar running the length of the dining room. There’s a few tables outside on the terrace, plus the salon at the back which would be perfect for a group or special occasion. 

Bacco Daily Specials

Bacco offer a variety of dishes on their menu, including daily specials, nibbles (tapas), starters and main courses from the land & sea. We decided to order a couple of nibbles rather than a starter, plus a main course. A box of warm bread was brought to the table with a cute selection of oil, salt, garlic butter and mojo mojo condiments.

Bacco Nibbles

When our nibbles of mini hamburgers and arepas arrived priced at only €2,10 each I wondered how we were going to fit our main course in! Miguel picked the chicken tikka masala arepa, and I ordered the black pig with beetroot version. These crunchy little pockets were well stuffed and delicious, served with an ample portion of fries. We both chose the lamb version of the mini hamburgers with roasted vegetables and honey. The burgers were a good size for “mini” ones, the lamb was tasty and succulent, again served with fries.

Bacco Steak Bacco Suckling Pig

Miguel’s fillet steak was from the specials menu, served with a pepper sauce, beautifully cooked fresh vegetables and fries. He commented on how succulent the steak was for a fillet cut. My roast suckling pig was amazing! It was a huge portion and I simply couldn’t finish the dish, admittedly my choice of starter hadn’t helped. The crackling was crunchy, and the meat just melted in my mouth. Leaving my fries I ate as much of the al dente green veg, apple puree and pork as I could manage.

Bacco is too new to be on the Lanzarote foodies radar as yet, we’d recommend you give them a try. The Chef is Abel del Rosario, who previously worked at the Altamar Restaurant on the top floor of the 5* Gran Hotel Arrecife. There’s some really different combinations on the menu, the portion sizes are good and we think it’s great value. Open daily for lunch and evening meal.
