Really enjoyed our meal here, we shared a plate of cheesy nacho's and my main meal was Chicken Enchillada which was very tasty, not good if your on a diet. Had a nice cocktail, Mojito. Great service and great food

Excellent find, food was great and the staff were friendly, attentive and helpful with our choice from the menu. We will definitely return to the restaurant on our next visit to Lanzarote.

We popped into Emma's in the Old Town after reading reviews about how amazing the food was. And I completely agree. We had a lovely appetiser of jalapenos, The Chili Roja was super spicy/hot and delicious! My sister had a gorgeous prawn main course too! We finished the meal with margaritas! Very strong... very delicious margaritas! Definitely worth a visit.
