31 May Lanzarote Vacation Tips: Our Favorite Restaurants
We’ve been telling you a lot about places to go and things to do, so now we thought we’d talk about some of the wonderful places to eat while you are staying at our holiday villas.
When you visit Timanfaya National Park, make sure you eat at Costa Azul in El Golfo, which combines wonderful fresh fish with an amazing outdoor terrace setting. Sheltered from the wind, you can enjoy the seaside view and marvelous ambience, as well as stunning sunsets. There are always some spectacular specials, dependent on what is available, so make sure to ask. Many visitors have said that Costa Azul is the best restaurant on the island, so we highly recommend that you check it out.
On the northeastern coast of Lanzarote, El Charcón in the seaside village of Arrieta also overlooks the sea. The octopus, prawns and mussels are recommended here, and the dry dock ambience is local and great for people watching. We suggest that you plan this restaurant into your itinerary on your way to or from Jameos del Agua.
When you visit Teguise, we strongly suggest that you stop by La Cantina, which is an amazingly eclectic restaurant serving generous servings of food from across the globe, including Vietnam, Thailand, Africa and South America. There is an impressive wine list to go along with their platters, which are large enough to be shared, and if you love chocolate, be sure to save room for dessert. You will also enjoy the chance to get an inside glimpse this historic, traditional Lanzarote house.
If you have come to our islands in search of the Spanish experience, don’t miss the tapas at Casa Museo del Campesino in San Bartolomé. In contrast to the pricier restaurant downstairs, this affordable tapas bar gives you the true campesino (peasant farmer) experience in another traditional Lanzarote building. The array of tapas available is lined up on the counter, making it easy for you to make your choices, and local beer and wine are also available.
If you find yourself on the southwest tip of the island, splurge a bit and eat at Almacén de la Sal in Playa Blanca. This former salt house is one of Lanzarote’s most atmospheric restaurants, with a breezy terrace and nearby promenade for people watching. The menu is extensive and includes many Lanzarote standards, as well as a nice wine list. We suggest that, in honor of the location, you try the tasty papas arrugadas, which are potatoes cooked in salt water.
