We have been staying in Fuerteventura for almost 3 weeks now having spent the last 10 days in Lajares. We popped into Canela's cafe on our first day because there was a buzz about the place and we were certainly not disappointed, we continued to visit most days for coffee and drinks, we have eaten there about 6 times now at various times of the day and have not been at all disappointed. The staff are very welcoming and friendly (as are the locals!!),we have not experienced a bad meal at all so it must have been a very off day that the previous reviewer visited. Please don't be put off, it is what it says on the tin, a cafe, very reasonably priced and well worth the visit. The food was a lot better than most of the restaurants in Coralejo (and a lot cheaper). Most of the local people seem to eat and drink there slit can't be that bad!!!

The food was revolting and even our two young children wouldn't eat their chips. They have lots on the menu but it was all very greasy and lacked flavour. We were very disappointed.

Hi there..
Thank you for your opinion! I would like to ask what you ate as you didn't specify at all.. We are a small family restaurant and take this very much to heart.. I would say I have no recollection of any complaint that anybody in the restaurant was so unhappy with there food, and given the chance would have rectified this... If you remember could you also tell me what time and day you were here .. Sorry that you were so unhappy and also that we were not given the chance to correct this!!

Always visit Canela's Bar/Restaurant whenever in Fuerteventura, the food is excellent value and service is good. One of the best restaurants in Lajares and now they have added music nights.
you can be forgiven for driving straight past unless it is pointed out to you. At the moment part of it is undergoing a refurb but does not interfere with the atmosphere or service. Lovely people, have got to know them well. My favourite is Gambos Chinos - King prawns wrapped in filo pastry
with a sweet chilli dip.

Over the years we have called in here on our way back to Corralejo from Cottillo and always enjoyed our visits. We recently stayed in Lajares and made this our main Port of Call. Great food, either during the day or at night with live music most nights. Nice to just chill sitting at the bar.
Sure, the bar caters for the surfing community with TVs showing surfing or skateboard shows, but everyone is made to feel welcome with a really nice atmosphere.
Will certainly visit again.

A hip location with outside sitting at the street. Inside we had some homemade fruit cocktails, a yummy veggie casserole and some kind of falafel pita with chips. A nice place for chilling and having some tasty snacks.
