Lanzarote Restaurant Review, Volcan de La Corona

The Restaurante Gril Volcán de La Corona is situated in the village of Yé by the crossroads to the Mirador del Río. We decided to visit for Sunday lunch after a walk up Monte Corona, luckily we’d already decided to book a table in advance, as it was full by 2pm.

It was our first time eating at the Volcán de La Corona, this restaurant has a patio area with a few tables outside and a large dining room inside. On this occasion we preferred to sit outside, it was a lovely day and we had a table in the shade. The fresh mojo sauces delivered with bread were good, in fact the Mojo Verde was one of the best we’ve ever sampled.  read more »

CD El Cotillo 3 UD Lanzarote 1

The Rojillos (The Reds) took over 100 fans to Fuerteventura who were all in a jovial mood but unfortunately this had to go down as the worst performance of the season. Lanzarote are still however the leaders of the division.

In the first minute of the match only a good save by Agoney prevented the home side from taking the lead. Against the run of play the Rojillos went in front on their first attack. Good work from the Colombian Mauri as he beat the left back and fired in a low shot, the keeper saved his effort but the rebound went high into the air and there are not many players who are going to out jump the towering frame of the Lanzarote skipper Rosmen who nodded the ball home into the empty net to give his side a 0-1 lead.

Lanzarote Wine Week A Success

Lanzarote wine week, which coincided with The European Day of Wine Tourism ended yesterday.

Charla-cata Malvasi?a

The week was kicked off by sommelier Pedro de Diego, who gave a wine tasting course called “The sommelier at home” at Castillo San José. He also gave a talk about the peculiarities of the Malvasía taste from Lanzarote wines, where the grapes are grown in conditions unlike anywhere else on the planet. It produces a unique and instantly recognisable taste and bouquet.
