We went to Casa Rafa following the recommendation of a friend who lived in the island. It was indeed an excellent restaurant with a decent variety of food (I never trust restaurants with a too long menu) and very high quality. We went twice and...had the opportunity of enjoying grilled fish, tuna tataki, local salad and a superbe arroz con carabineros. Rafa is really nice and will guide you on your choices.More

A beautiful restaurant with sea views and wonderful fresh fish to share as a main course or a good selection of starters! Great service with a smile and very welcoming !

Our friends chose this restaurant as it has a good reputation and they were absolutely correct, from the seating, through taking our orders, the serving of our food, everything was spot on. We shared starters of padron peppers, fresh goats cheese and tomatoes. For our...main course, the star of the day was the grilled Barracuda which was more than adequate for 3-4 diners and the solomillo I had was cooked to perfection. Two of us chose the strawberries and ice cream for dessert which was huge but delicious. We will return.More

We have just had the most amazing meal Here! We hadn’t booked and when we arrived the place was very busy however they found us a table. We had starters of Prawns and croquettes which were lovely but then the star of the show was...the fish of the day which served 2. The waiter served it to us explaining the type of fish, each section etc. Despite being full the service was brilliant,‘not just waiters but a full front of house service - taking Time to speak to the guests, being attentive and very friendly! Amazing!! Well done everyone 👏🏻👏🏻More

We love this restaurant. We visit twice a year when we can and it never lets us down - good food, good wine and a professional level of service, not much more to ask for. Our two visits in December 2020 gave us fantastic fish...dishes - first barracuda and second fulo de fondo, both wonderfully cooked and served, accompanied by Lanzarote wines. Everything within Covid guidelines - QR menus etc. We love it here, and Rafa, we love your [Italian] shirt - keep your collar down. Hope to be back soonMore

If you enjoy fish and seafood in a dis pretentious way this is the place. The food is cooked the way it should with fresh fish and seafood caught of the coast. It is cooked as my family would with attention to the freshness of...the ingredients rather than the Instagram version of a dish. For the true sea taste lovers!More

If you want a truly amazing fish, don’t miss out Casa Rafa. Run by Rafa himself, he and most of his crew are from Galicia, and boy do they know how to prepare fish. The best I have tasted on the island!

I can highly recommend this place for your dinner or lunch, when you love fish. Everything is very fresh caught and Rafa and his team try everything to make you happy even when he explain the type of fish. The place is beautiful located at...a quite road with the view on the sea.More
