We went here for lunch and had the menu of the day. Everyone in the party enjoyed their meals and the view out to sea was amazing!

We tried a different restaurant and enjoyed our meal. We sat on the terrace by the sea on a hot and busy afternoon. The garlic prawns were not hot enough to be perfect, easy to do perfectly.

Really good menu choice with tasty food, and friendly service. We had tapas that suited both vegetarian and meat lovers. I would definately recommend this lovely restaurant which is in a wonderful setting over looking the sea.

Heard about the excellent fish restaurants in El Golfo and this certainly lived up to the reputation. We had a seafood paella and a tapas lunch and all dishes were excellent. Waiter was pleasant and helpful. Planning return before we leave island.

As our flight home was in the evening we drove down to the south of the Island and took the opportunity of sampling some fresh sea food. We were not disappointed. The restaurant we chose had a good selection of fish.

Nice location, very fresh fish. We ate a fantastic portion of mussels and calamari. Average price, I think the prices are quite the same in the area. Definitely worth it.

View, food, service absolutely spot on! We found this place by complete accident but very pleased we did. We were persuade by the waiter to eat there at lunchtime, we had the fish tapas set menu which was delicious. The other guests were all enthusing about their meals. If ever in the vicinity we would definitely call again.

We drove from Punta Majeres to come and see the sunset and have sun downers. This place is highly recommended for dinner and drinks! Excellent food, some of the best seafood in lazarote and Thomas the owner could not have done more for us. Even helping with directions of how to drive home! Excellent location, food and service!!
