Lanzarote Restaurant Review, La Gamba Loca

It was a lovely Sunday afternoon and we fancied a drive out to the coast. Taking the scenic route through Timanfaya, we finally arrived in El Golfo too late for lunch and too early for a sunset dinner.

La Gamba Loca El Golfo

We decided to have a walk through the village to see if we could find somewhere offering tapas, rather than fresh fish which is usually on our minds when eating in El Golfo.

La Gamba Loca wasn’t a place we’d tried before, and they had a tapas special offer of 6 dishes for €15.   read more »

Starlight Open Air Cinema: July 2017

I have recently attended Starlight Open Air Cinema for the first time -I know, it's taken me long enough!-  and I must admit I was impressed. The movie started promptly as the sky was getting darker and from the comfort of my seat I could see the stars and the moon passing by. The blanket supplied was more than welcome as night-time can get a bit chilly - well, at least compared to the heat during the day. The headphones were surprisingly comfortable, light and easy to use: you can choose which of the two languages is shown in you want to listen at the flick of a button and the volume is as easily adjustable. Don't forget to bring them back to the usher at the end of the night when you are leaving the premises!
