“Curry experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

This was a quaint restaurant off the main promenade. The steaks were lovely but all the sauces had a curry taste plus mushroom or peppercorns. We liked the food and would return.

“Off the beaten track, but worth a try.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

Visited after being stopped in street by very pleasant PR lady.
Off the main restaurant row/street, but certainly worth a visit.
Steak was beautiful and they even made a pizza for my other half despite not being on the menu as this would have determined our visit this evening as this is what he fancied.
Simple surroundings, reasonable value.

“Off the main strip is best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2014

First visit to this fine restaurant which lays back from the main strip.
We found this eatery on Valentine's Night tucked away but you can tell by the exterior decor ,reserved tables and a little pricier meals we found a gem.We were not disappointed .
We had starters followed by a fillet steak cooked to perfection and the house special of Sea Bass .
Another Lanzarote restaurant to add to our list ..Moral eat away from the main area of the strip full of restaurant touts mugging you to eat in their place and find these hidden gems ..Good Luck ...

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2014 via mobile

The Plough would be higher on this list of restaurants in PDL if it was better positioned! We found it on our penultimate night and went back on the last. Food good, try the lamb, the steaks very good. (Huge portions)
Menus limited, but this allows chef to concentrate on what you request. Service very friendly.
