We skipped dinner at our hotel and booked this restaurant. The food is of a goodish standard, but not exceptional. Staff are pleasant, but service tends to be too quick, so that you feel a little pressurised to finish and leave. Prices were a bit high for this standard of restaurant, especially the wines.

Staying in Lanzarote self catering it can be rather expensive and a bit of a chore to keep seeking out interesting places to eat or indeed sorting out your own meal. This restaurant filled that need, it was very like the sort of Italian chains we have in England, Ask and Prezzos, but with a larger range of dishes and... More

Real Italian almost half of the price most of "fancy 5 stars thematic hotel" restaurants. The service was fast and showing real interest: we have a small kid and he was sleepy, but the waiter ordered a quick Spaghetti bolognese and they were there in a couple minutes. Tasty and absolutely recomendable.

Fairly standard Italian food but well cooked and tasty. I had tagliatelle with many mushrooms and the other half choose steak - as usual - but said it was beautifully tender. Friendly staff and reasonable prices.

We called in here to get some dinner after our flight got in late - the food was delicious, the service friendly and the wine was great - we would definitely go back to this lovely little restaurant!

At first glance you might give this a by in its conservatory style but that would be a mistake.The staff are very good and a mine of information and they serve wonderful stakes and gigantic Pizzas if that is to your taste,Tends to be crowded as the establishment is quite small.Good for families.
