5 Special Occasions Restaurants In Puerto del Carmen

Puerto del Carmen is full of great restaurants of all types, and you could eat out for every meal for a long period and never try them all! We’re doing our best, but it’s a lifetime’s work to report on every single one of them.

But there are some restaurants which are worthy of second or third visits – those places on the “special occasion” list, and ones which we use when we want to celebrate a birthday or an anniversary or just to have a treat.

Here are our 5 special occasion restaurants in Puerto del Carmen:

Casa Roja

Casa Roja_2

Set right in the harbour, with a terrace onto the ocean, Casa Roja serves excellent food and wine in a delightful atmosphere during lunchtimes and evenings. As you would expect, the sea food is delicious, although the Argentinian sourced steaks are pretty special as well. The building itself is fascinating, being one of the oldest on the island, dating from 1850.

Casa Cabaña

DSCN1425

Not to be confused with La Cabaña in Macher (which is also excellent) Casa Cabaña is situated in the old town of Puerto del Carmen and features an enclosed front terrace area and cool air conditioned interior. The house speciality is Beef Wellington, which is superb, and they also offer a good choice of poultry, fish and vegetarian dishes. The restaurant is British owned and is open evenings only from Monday to Saturday.

Adopting a dog in Lanzarote

I had been thinking about it for a while and, finally, I decided to take the plunge: I was going to adopt a dog.

Blackie

I got in touch with SARA, the well-known animal protection association of Lanzarote sending them a message via Facebook and Ana, one of SARA's spokespersons, responded promptly. She asked me a few questions: had I had dog before, what kind of dog was I after, had I seen any in particular on their website that I'd be interested in meeting. This was the part that I dreaded the most: choosing just one amongst so many.

I had visited the SARA's premises a few years ago, when a friend of mine adopted her dog. I went along a bit for moral support and a bit for curiosity to see what it was like in there. My heart was broken, so many animals in this animal limbo, waiting to be picked by someone willing to give them a home. So Ana came to MY rescue: she suggested this little dog that wasn't even listed yet! She told me about her background and send me a photo. The minute I saw her, I thought: this is she! I can honestly say that it was love at first sight. I had the honour of naming her and  read more »

Bottom Fishing & Coastal Trolling Excursion

The Katfish departs from La Tiñosa harbour in the old town area of Puerto del Carmen three times a week for bottom fishing and coastal trolling excursions in Lanzarote.

Katfish Puerto del Carmen HarbourKatfish Sport Fishing Lanzarote

We arranged our trip with Sport Fishing Lanzarote, through Touristticket both of whom have an office in the harbour itself. There were 17 of us booked for the excursion and our crew included Captain Osiris, Louie and Mathew. What’s nice about this particular fishing excursion is that the boat is comfortable for spectators, there’s plenty of space, the deck is flat and you can walk around the Katfish without fear of falling over board.

El Capitán Osiris welcomed us aboard, he’s a Lanzaroteño with an unusual name taken after an Egyptian god, so commonly known as Captain Sparrow. The rods were already set up and in position along the length of the Katfish, after a quick briefing on the day we cruised out of the harbour heading south.
