Lanzarote Restaurant Review - Bogavante, El Golfo

Sunday lunches are important here in Lanzarote – it’s a time to unwind and enjoy a long, slow meal in the company of friends or family.

One of our favourite places to go is El Golfo – the village has many restaurants, and they are renowned for their fresh fish. We recently chose Bogavante for a meal with some very good friends, who were staying in Playa Blanca.

Bogavante opens directly onto the ocean and the outside terrace is actually on the beach. We were lucky to find a table there – we hadn’t booked, but we did arrive early at about 1PM. As you walk into the restaurant, you go past a large tank with live lobsters in it, and three of us made an instant decision to go for the speciality of the house.

We were surprised and impressed when not one, but two Lamborghinis pulled up outside while we were there, and their owners came into the restaurant as well. We didn’t even know there were two Lambos in Lanzarote!

Shocking Attack In San Bartolome

Mystery still surrounds the shocking and isolated incident of a brutal attack on José Antonio Perera de León, a carpenter living in the La Florida area of San Bartolomé on Monday. The traumatic event has led to conflicting reports about the number of attackers who were involved and why they should have tortured the man to such an extent.  The intruders severely injured the man and caused significant damage to his home before stealing the family's car, which was later found abandoned in the Argana area of Arrecife.
