We stumbled across this place looking for somewhere else and decided to give it a try. We all had the menu du jour the tuna stuffed eggs and spanish meat platter were both very nice and good sized portions. This was followed by sardines and canarian potatoes for some and chicken fricasee for others then a caramel pudding. The food... More

Only discovered El Marinero at the end of our stay. We will go back to try more of the menu if when we return to this beautiful island. The four course special to share is worth a try if you like fish, @ €15 p.p. with a drink of choice also. Nice quiet location. The French staff are quiet but... More

Owners/staff are so rude and unfriendly, they don't bother even raising a smile unless you are French. The food was a insult to French cooking, tasteless, bland, tiny portions. Don't waste your money...there are plenty of good restaurants in the area.

We had the worst restaurant experience here. The food was terrible, soup that was watered down and no flavour, chicken main dish that also had poor flavour, stale greasy vegetable stew and a tiny amount of chicken. What was awful about this is we have been faithful regulars to this restaurant every time we visit lanzarote, once we went three... More

Was here on a Sunday evening while in Puerto Del Carmen, staff were welcoming however the service was not great with huge gaps between courses. The food was average - not sure if I would go back.

This place should be called Fawlty Towers. Owner is not very welcoming and only smiled when I asked for the bill in French and the young Spanish waiter hadn't a clue what was on the menu. Coq au vin was acceptable but the hake was over cooked. House wine was very cheap and quiet good value. Couldn't recommend this restaurant... More

I recently ate at El Marinero with family. The food is good quality and home cooked. It is a family run resturant. It is very easy to miss as it is on the side street just up from Playa Chica. The 'Monsieur' of the Madison is a little hard of hearing and not very friendly but he thaws out as... More

Three course meal, two beers and tip €15 - Real Belgian/French style grub - Super bouffe - will return at least once this holiday! Panacota dessert was worth the 15 alone.

Had a good meal here. Was a last minute visit as other place intended to visit was closed. Nice staff/owners, quiet atmosphere but we did visit relatively late. Have had better french food but worth a visit if you have the inclination.
