Welcoming and homely. Food was great - we had a salad to share as a starter and a pizza each, and completely over-ate! In the main room where we sat, you can watch them cooking the pizzas in the pizza oven.

This is a little gem in Lajares. It has a lovely atmosphere and lovely surroundings. The food was delicious, I had pasta which was delicious, the pizzas also looked and smelled amazing. Good service despite very busy, good mix of people. Would definitely return

Have you been surfing all the day? There's no better way to end your day with a good pizza, and La Cancela is the right place for you. Highly recommend: Pizza Tarosa. Desserts are also very good.

The staff were very friendly and helpful and even remembered the childrens pizza toppings the second time we popped in a few days later. The pizza was very good and made very quickly. A definite hit with the family.

Been here a great number of times during our 5 week long winter holidays to Fuerteventura. The food is great, the pizzas even greater!! You will not be disappointed! The owner knows us from years ago and welcomes you at the door. Perfect!

Great range of pizza, freshly cooked with thin bases and generous toppings. Good service, range of drinks. Recommend booking on weekends etc as this place deservedly gets super busy!
