We were staying a 2 minute walk from this restaurant for a week. We decided to give it a try on our last evening in Lanzarote so we had eaten out in quite a few places in the north of the island. Our fish (local fresh fish at 15e each) was as good as anywhere else we had eaten similar dishes. We popped in earlier in the week for a drink, so knew it was a local type spot. There were no other diners while we were there despite being after 9pm on a Friday night. The bar area was quite busy and there were a few people coming and going with take away bags. The staff were lovely. There was an English menu and we mostly communicated with gestures and smiles. Complementary bread, mojos, honey rum and lollies were appreciated. Would recommend. Also 2.5 euro for a glass of wine, very reasonable.

We've just returned from Restaurante Palenke and can say the food was good for the price paid. This is no fine dining restaurant but that's not what it's trying to be. Service was polite, there were plenty of locals in there watching the football, and the food was decent enough. If you like simple food, done reasonably well at decent prices then this is for you.

There are other restaurants in the area with better views, but this traditional spanish restaurant clearly caters for the locals and whatever tourists stumble across it. The fish soup and house salad were particularly good and the house wine was very good value. The service was slow and the food came out when it was ready (not always all together), but that didn't lessen our enjoyment.

Totally loved this restaurant, spent 5 out of 7 nights going here and were sorry we didn't go those other two nights. Friendly efficient staff and the food was amazing. We highly recommend the fillet steak in Roquefort sauce, got it two nights in a row haha. The mixed grill for two seen in the photo was more than enough for me and my 6'6" boyfriend, and we were able to see Marco grill it on the big BBQ. The service was quick and the food fresh and always piping hot. The restaurant itself doesn't look anything from outside and we actually passed by it the first night when we were looking for somewhere to eat and then decided to give it a go, so glad we did. I'm not a drinker but was celebrating a big birthday and had a mojito with my meal, ended up having one every night after that, delicious and refreshing yum yum. Also the shots of honey rum that came with the bill were very sweet and delish, and heart shaped lollipops too ❤️ and they weren't to soften the blow of the bill either, extremely reasonable prices overall, we could have course have eaten a lot cheaper there if we didn't have fillet steak most nights but compared to back home it was so reasonable we made the most of it, I may have gained at least half a stone this holiday just eating meat ....don't pass by this restaurant you won't be sorry

Have visited Palenke many times and it never disappoints. Can recommend many things off the menu but this time tried the fish with peppercorn sauce. It was delicious. Give this hidden gem a try. Lovely outside chill out area and separate restaurant area.
