Sample some authentic eats
With abundant fresh seafood, Mediterranean cuisine and a number of upmarket culinary experiences; Lanzarote is a foodie paradise.
Restaurant Lilium is situated on Arrecife’s harbour and serves up Canarian classics with a modern twist. The range of fresh seafood is a must-try with local dishes such as Sancocho de Cherne (fresh fish prepared with sweet potatoes and spicy Mojo sauce), followed up by a selection of delicious dessert options such as chocolate mousse or fresh papaya with ice cream. A popular place for romantic dinners, bookings can be made via their website.
To catch the ultimate sunset view, look no further than Cafe del Ola in Puerto Del Carmen. For a truly memorable experience, we recommend grabbing a beachside table in the evening to watch the sun set over the Atlantic with a Mojito in hand.
For a taste of some of the best regional cuisine, head to an authentic haunt and sample an array of fresh tapas, all for a price that will have you coming back for another helping! Local food, great beer and even better value is served up at El Guachinche de Luis in Costa Teguise, we recommend you try the Papas arrugadas (Canarian potatoes) served up with traditional spicy red pepper Mojo sauce. For something a little different, pick up an artisan burger and an organic beer at Tabla Arrecife.
Lanzarote is reliably family friendly and Pardelas Park is heaven for kids, who can feed the farm animals and explore the outdoor play area. Pardelas will impress adult visitors too: it has a popular restaurant which is a great spot to refuel on local delicacies and sample the island’s best wines. Its website has useful information including prices and opening times.
