“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2013

A great little eating and drinking place, 5metres from the sea outdoor seating and some really good food and drink make this a great place for people watching or just chilling out, not the cheapest but well worth it

“Great location, average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2013

The restaurant was recommended to us for having a diner with great food, but although we thought the location was great we found the food rather average compared to other restaurants we visited during our holiday on Lanzarote. Especially compared to the prices they are charging for the various dishes on their menu. During our visit the service of the staff was very professional and we could recommend the salad with gambas.

Note: the location of the restaurant on the promenade of Playa Honda and the views makes it a good location for a (romantic) lunch.

“A proper restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2013

We have now eaten twice at Emmax. The first time was an impromptu light lunch, and now a dinner. At the lunch we noticed three groups of prosperous local Spanish people eating there - an endorsement which encouraged us to come again. The place has two characters. Outside a typical terrace atmosphere, inside an attractive restaurant room - proper place settings, candles and, at present there is an exhibition of large south african animal portraits
The cooking is excellent and quite inventive. In a group of four we all have different starters and deserts. As a main three of us were attracted by an oven baked dorada with thyme, and were each rewarded with a perfect fish. Only two criticisms - the "orange tiramisu" should really be called cake. As well as replacing the coffee by fresh orange, there was cream rather than mascapone. I found it too sweet, but it was very popular at other tables. The second - the dorada fillet with (really tasty) sweet potato puree would benefit from some additional decoration on the plate! It was a quiet evening and the service was excellent.

“Almost missed it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2013

On a rather long walk from Puerto Del Carmen we stumbled across Emmax. We actually passed it but decided to go back and have lunch there. We had a long leisurely, well deserved lunch, to match our long walk. Like many of the other reviewers here, we agree, it has great food and wine too.... We would highly recommend it.
