Just returned from a cheeky break in Lanzarote. Stayed away from the usual "tourist spots" instead staying in Arrecife. Wandering around the back streets, just off the main promenade, we discovered "Chef Nizar". What a brilliant discovery!! Entering though the main door you are greeted by a small (7 table) eating area, tastefully decorated. An instant feeling of intimacy hits... More

Really nice ambiance to this restaurant. The staff were very friendly but two of the things we asked for from the menu they didn't have. My husband and I had humous as starters then my husband had roast shoulder of lamb (expensive at 24 Euros) and I had chicken kebabs. At 70 Euros it was one of the most expensive... More

We really enjoyed the great food and service at Nizar. Especially the lamb was really really good. We need more mid-east cuisine on Lanzarote. Thumbs up for this place!

6 of us has been there for San Valentin. We got the 7 course starters, 15 euros each for some wet lettuce and 3 small humus to be share between all of us! Restaurant was full, only one waiter is not enough. Probably she had a bad night, coz we were close to leave the place just for her attitude!... More

This restaurant is trading on its previous good ratings which must have been acheived by a previous chef or owner. We paid 30 euros for 2 small portions of houmoys a few lettuce leaves and a couple of dry overcooked falafel. This came with 2 pitta bread which we were charged another 2 euros for. This "mezze platter" was sold... More

We had been to Chef Nizar several years ago and then found it pricey and the service rather overbearing. After quite a few years, we decided to give it another try and were really glad we did. It is not extremely cheap but the food and wine are both excellent now and very good value for money. The service is... More
