Our experience at the Restaurant El Risco in Caleta de Famara, Teguise. Lanzarote.
The truth is that I do not know which dish to recommend to you if you were lucky enough to visit the Restaurant El Risco in Caleta de Famara (Teguise, Lanzarote). The menu is so innovative that it’s difficult to name to name them all. But for me, there are two dishes that have totally changed my palate: The fried moray (morena frita) and the grilled octopus (pulpo al grill)… What an experience! I am not a real fan of the moray, but hey, I tried it and it was de-li-cious! Now every time I go, I always order it.
Every time I visit El Risco in Famara, I am always amazed by the great variety of Lanzarote wines they have. They also have a wide range of sweet wines that you have to taste. But above all, let them advise you, they never fail… And enjoy the tasting!
If you decide to spend a relax afternoon or a luxury dining by night at the emblematic El Risco Restaurant, you will enjoy it completely. Pedro and Marco together with the great team of professionals they have at their disposal, will make you enjoy a day full of joy and warmth.
Personally, I like to spend Sundays afternoon there very much. The kitchen closes around 17:00pm and most customers leave around 16:00pm… That tranquility, with the best views of Caleta de Famara, La Graciosa Island, La Alegranza, the Chinijo Archipelago and the impressive Atlantic Ocean in all their splendor and the changes in light on the beach, guarantee a charge of battery for the rest of the week.
