In the “Restaurante El Risco” in Caleta de Famara they have the single objective to satisfy all their customers.
Faithful to their work philosophy and with the fruits of yearly experiences in the gastronomic sector, the management and the chefs of Restaurante El Risco offer a selection of dishes made with the best products and raw materials of the highest quality. What makes the difference to other good restaurants is their commitment and determination.
You can taste, among others, fresh fish and seafood, casseroles, paellas and rice dishes, soups and broths of fish, and of course, typical dishes of the canarian gastronomy like “Sancocho”, cheeses and mojos with different textures. For lovers of meat, there are offers of Iberian meats from stone and other varieties.
A range of famous Lanzarote wines and from the whole Spanish territory accompanies the gastronomic offer of the Restaurante El Risco in Caleta de Famara.
You have to reserve a table for dinner. But you can book an appointment online, if you want.
This restaurant is located in the small fishermen’s village El Golfo. The main road of El Golfo leads you down to coastline where you will find Mar Azul. The restaurant Mar Azul is located on the street, but there are also tables facing the sea on the other side of the road. A beautiful sunset is offered to you every evening since the sky is not cloudy. Fish and particularly the “Calamari a la plancha” are recommended. The specialty of the house is Caldoso. Caldoso is a succulent rice dish with seafood such as lobster, crayfish or king prawns.
Before your dinner you could visit the famous lago verde at the entrance to El Golfo and the beautiful coastal area around.
Please do not order a “fish plate”, but rather one fish. Otherwise make clear, in case of doubt with hands and feet, that you first want to look at the fish in the kitchen. Fish plates are served in all restaurants with the fish that is cheaper.
In the restaurant La Bohemia they are specialized in grilled meats, international dishes and varied suggestions of fruit based on the creativity of their chef’s.
The team of La Bohemia likes to innovate without losing the touch of homemade food and ingredients of the earth. Therefore, they incorporate new plates and dishes into the menu every season. In addition to delicious meats, the menu includes salads, tapas, fish, burgers and pastas. The winery has a selection of wines from different Spanish references of the best national origin denominations. You will find ideal wines to accompany their delicious grilled meats.
You should reserve a table during the typical times of lunch or dinner.
If you want to experience a very special, creative and pleasant-tasting cocktail and a spectacular show as well, we recommend you to spend an evening in the Cocktail Bar “La Delicatezza” in Puerto del Carmen. The bar was established by Anthony Serra from Italy in 2013. He and his team have the philosophy to offer an impressive bar experience based on ingredients of high quality, a large variety of long drinks and cocktails and a bartender show surrounded by great music playlists. The Bartender juggles the blenders and bottles around his neck, above his head and through the bar in a professional artistic way. The preparation of a cocktail equals an entertainment show. Even the unique “special cocktails” are very entertaining. The decoration is elaborate and the taste is stunning. Many ingredients and syrups of the cocktails are homemade of fresh fruits and vegetables. But you can also have a lovely prepared virgin cocktail, one without alcohol, a long drink like a Gin Tonic or a beer for sure. Otherwise, you relax in this cocktail bar at the Avenida de Playas in Puerto del Carmen with a nice sea view and a good coffee in the afternoon. They also prepare a shisha for you, if you want. The cocktail bar La Delicatezza is definitively worth visiting.
It is hard to find a parking close to the cocktail bar, but even not very important due to the fact that the cocktails are very delicious.
FRI – SAT 10am-2am
Approaching from LZ 30, the former capital of the island, Teguise is easy to find. In 1852 Teguise had to give up its title with a heavy heart to Arrecife. However Teguise is a small town with a lot of charm and ambiance, winding streets and historic buildings. Parking is easy.
One should definitely visit Teguise twice: once during the week when Teguise shows it’s quiet and contemplative side, and on a Sunday when the town comes alive. Colouful and flamboyant weekend markets attract the crowds. Market sellers and artisans present their wares – haggling is the order of the day for kitsch, junk and hand-made crafts.
Throw yourself into the fray and be inspired by the vitality and the spirit of the town. The market closes at 2pm, but keep your eyes peeled when you stroll through the lanes of Teguise. In certain backyards there’s live music to be found.
Since the 90s, the church hall of the former monastery “Convento de Santo Domingo” is a venue for art exhibitions, entry is free. “Plaza de la Constitución” has several attractions. Built in the 15th century, the gothic style church “San Miguel” is eye catching and one of the oldest religious buildings on the Canary Islands. Unfortunately, the doors to the inner part of church, where the statue of the Virgin of Guadalupe are closed to most visitors.
Opposite the church is the 18th-century “Palacio Spínola” which now houses a spinola museum. Spinola is a guitar-like instrument played in the Canary Islands, having its origins in Teguise. Even if you’re not interested in the history or construction methods of the spinola, the Palacio is worth a visit. The beautiful courtyard and interiors are a prime example of 18th century Canarian architecture. To the left of the Palacio is “La Cilla”, a small house. In this former tithed building, farmers had to give a part of their grain harvest as taxes. How fitting that today a bank now occupies this historic building.
Wander through the winding alley ways and discover a myriad of surprises: workshops where ancient handy crafts are produced, galleries with interesting works of art and presentations, cozy cafes with small, beautiful courtyards and earthy pubs. Next to the ancient theater of Teguise is the restored “Palacio Marqués de Herrera y Rojas”, now home to the Restaurant “Palacio del Marqués”. Prices for tapas and wine are definitely on the heavy side. Ordering less than a whole bottle of wine, will more than likely incur a derogatory reaction.
Leaving the town towards Haría is “Castillo Santa Barbara.” Either follow the signposted footpath and walk up the hill, or drive in the comfort of your car. Views over Teguise are fantastic . In the past the Castillo served as an observation post for the Lanzaroteños. Oncoming attacks by pirates could easily be seen and population warned. Interestingly this historic building is now a pirate museum.
The Market in Teguise is every Sunday in the whole town. There are many stands for clothes, accessories and food.
In Spanish Tias means aunts. The town was given the name by the former governor of Gran Canaria, Don Alfonso Fajardo, who named the place to honour his aunts. Formerly called The Tias of Fajardo after Doña Francisca and Doña Hernán Fajardo.
Tias has around 5,500 residents, is today the main town of the Municipio de Tias and the authorities and the police headquarters are based here. Many long term or permanent holidaymakers have made the town their new home. But more and more short stay holidaymakers are enjoying their holidays in the many available apartments and fincas, away from the hustle and bustle. There are plenty of beautiful little shops and some typical Spanish tapas bars and restaurants. You can visit the two churches “Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria” and “San Antonio”. If you are in Tias on a Saturday morning, then is visiting the market, where local produce and products from the island are offered, is a must. Exhibitions take place in the small church of La Ermita on a regular basis.
It is not easy to find the right restaurant in the middle of the numerous restaurants at the Avenida de las Playas next to the beach in Puerto del Carmen.
A secret advice could be this: Restaurante Maritoni in Puerto del Carmen.
However, “secret” is perhaps the wrong term, because many guests visit this restaurant during their holidays several times. Even if the restaurant does not stand out from the crowd due to a huge illuminated sign or a huge sun terrace, you will soon realise that you are right. Many guests are in and in front of the small room. Thus, you may have to wait some minutes for a table. But it is definitely worth it.
If the bar of Restaurante Maritoni is already filled with waiting guests, you can go a few doors further in the bar called Sea View to have beer, wine or something similar. In both locations the spanish team of Toni welcomes you. They all speak english perfectly and also a little bit of german. When your table is ready, they will keep you up from Sea View Bar.
The restaurant Maritoni has existed since the early 1990er. That is special in this street of so many restaurants.
You will find a traditional spanish cuisine that serves you fresh fish, several meals of beef, pig or chicken as well as veggetarian dishes.
If you are not sure about the taste of the dishes, then certainly the fair value for money will convince you.
Or the location at the beach promenade in Puerto del Carmen on Lanzarote.
You may have to walk a bit to reach the restaurant Maritoni because it is not easy to get a parking close to it. But the walk will also helpful afterwards because don’t think that the portions are small…
No reservations! Just pass by
