Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

We had never been to a mexican restaurant before any resevstions we had were soon put aside. The staff were very helpful samples were given to ensure that we would enjoy our meal once we had chosen from the large menu that was very well explained by our new friend from wolverhampton. The food was what can I say AMAZING. Thanks for a great meal and your hospitality. We will definitely be returning.

“Gorgeous food, fab service.”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

We were in the Old Town last week and ate here twice it was so good! This is a small restaurant with an intimate feel. The waitresses explained the menu very clearly and asked about our tastes before advising us on each occasion. I am a vegetarian and there was plenty of choice for me, my husband loved the meat - apparently the ribs were full of meat which fell off the bone. We had two meals, one dessert, a few spirits with mixers and a cocktail for less than £35! One of Lanzarote's musts!

Had yet another fantastic meal at Emma's; great service and authentic Mexican food make Emma's one of our favourite restaurants in Lanzarote! Try the Chilli Rojo!
