Lanzarote Restaurant Review - In Situ, Arrecife

In Situ We came across the tapas bar In Situ with an outside terrace area by chance recently. We were heading for the Recova Market in Arrecife, the capital of Lanzarote it was a Saturday morning and I hadn’t yet seen the second hand market although I was disappointed as the doors were closed.

There was a market situated around the Charco de San Ginés but I had visited there recently so we walked through the square in front of the San Ginés church and noticed the umbrellas and outside seating. We hadn’t eaten breakfast and it was early for lunch for us but having read the blackboards which were written in Spanish and English, we were tempted with something to eat and decided on brunch!

Lanzarote Football, Guadalajara 4 Lanzarote 0

U.D Lanzarote’s three match winning streak came to an abrupt end in the space of 16 second half minutes against second placed side, Guadalajara. New signing Moncho made his debut and Ian Robinson partnered Rosmen up front in the absence of the injured Jonathon Torres. The Rojillos got off to a steady start and didn’t allow their opponents any time to dwell on the ball. The best opportunities for the Rojillos came from set pieces in the opening 45 minutes as well as Englishman Robbo who beat his defender but the keeper somehow managed to smother his strike. The Madrid side came close from an effort by striker Marcos Navas in the 37th minute which was well saved by Lanzarote keeper Vilches and three minutes later the same player shot high and over inside the six yard box.

tonito250110 Lanzarote came out for the second half believing that they could win this game and looked the more capable team in possession. Less than 10 minutes into the second half and the game turned upside down for Lanzarote with the temperamental winger Toñito picking up his second yellow card in the space of five minutes forcing his team mates to play the remainder of the match with 10 men. Over 3000 home fans roared their team to attack the 10 man Lanzarote and they obliged with 16 minutes of deadly finishing. Barnsley boy Ian was sacrificed and replaced with midfielder Maikel Padrón as Guadalajara smelt blood and looked for the kill. In the 65thminute the home side went in front when Marcos Navas blasted in from close range following a goal mouth scramble. In the 73rd minute winger Alain got round the back of the Lanzarote defence and chipped the advancing keeper to make the score 2-0. Four minutes later and midfielder Iván Moreno added a third and the rout was completed in the 81st minute when Sub Manzano stuck away the fourth.  read more »
