Lanzarote Restaurant Review, Mercado Diecisiete

I can’t believe Mercado Diecisiete has been open for more than a year now and it’s our first time of eating there, time passes so quickly.

Mercado Diecisiete Interior

This restaurant is situated in Pueblo Marinero, the popular square in the heart of Costa Teguise. The square was buzzing, it was Friday night and the bars with outside tables were packed, we arrived at Mercado Diecisiete and was surprised to find it quiet, we received a friendly welcome and were offered a table of our choice. 

Mercado Diecisiete Muebles

We were only planning on a main meal but was persuaded to have a little starter to share with our bottle of wine, the bread with tomato and Iberian ham was just right.   read more »

Counter back  Exterior

Yoghurt Creations has been in its current position, in Pueblo Marinero, for a year, and the owners are selling due to ill health. Pueblo Marinero is the busiest part of Costa Teguise - the square with live music and dozens of bars and restaurants. Yoghurt Creations enjoys a busy daytime trade, but also benefits from good business during the evenings, as people leave the restaurants and want to enjoy a dessert somewhere else.

Pharmacy Information For Lanzarote

One of the things that will strike visitors to Lanzarote is that there appear to be so many pharmacies here, known as farmacias, and identified by the flashing green cross sign.


The reason is that they are an integral part of the health service here. The staff are highly trained and they should be the first port of call for most non-emergency medical treatments. 

It’s also worth noting that even basic drugs such as pain killers cannot be bought in supermarkets or other shops here, so your nearest Farmacia is the place to go for anything like that.

If you are given a prescription by a doctor here, the farmacia is where you go to have your medicine dispensed.  read more »

Sterilisation & Identification Campaign for Pets: Save Lives, Sterilise!

We are happy to announce to the animal lovers of Lanzarote that the Animal Shelter Sara is launching a Sterilisation and Identification Campaign together with the local authorities to offer these at... half price!!! Yes, you read it right: 50% discount!!!


Sara has been meeting over a period of time with the island’s local authorities to negotiate subsidies for residents and their efforts are coming to light in the shape of the "Save Lifes, Sterilise!" Campaign.

There are many benefits to sterilising your pet, not only in relation to the animal's health but it also minimises the urge of the males wandering off looking for females when they are in heat, also avoiding unwanted litters and in turn decreases abandonment, to name but a few. You can also find a list of other benefits here (10-beneficios-de-esterilizar-a-tu-mascota)

There is a limited number of subsidies available and they will be granted on a strict first come fist served basis, so if you had been thinking of sterilising your pet but didn't have the funds to do it, don't miss your chance.

Currently there are only 3 participating municipalities: Arrecife, Haría and San Bartolomé .

But do not despair if you don't live in any of these, as other town halls have showed interest in adhering to this campaign too. We will  read more »
