    Excellent food and a great choice of dishes for a lunchtime menu on a very hot day. If you want first-class food in a beautiful setting that reflects Lanzarote and the influence of Cesar Manrique, this is the place to go.

    The setting is lovely .. we had a nice table . the food is good , it’s presented well . We had a tasting menu for 2 sadly my husband’s fish was undercooked although the waitress immediately took the dish to have a new dish made which means I have to eat on my own . They serve the food without explaining what they are . Maybe they are not confident with their english but this place is not just for Spanish speaking people . Ok we know it’s a fish but what kind of fish ? we don’t even know what the dessert is if it’s a carrot or banana cake or whatever .. Not a lot of choice for wines either .. Can’t fault the location but food is only ok not excellent . Good thing , it’s not that expensive.

    Amazing setting, exquisite food, excellent service, great atmosphere. We had the 5 course set menu - definitely recommend, was good value for money. We went with family including a 6 year old child and he was looked after well with a good children's menu and sweets at the end. Cannot fault.

About the restaurant

En la capital de Lanzarote nos encontramos con sensacionales vistas y la posibilidad de disfrutar de una gastronomía vanguardista en una de las obras de arte de Cesar Manrique. Situado frente al mar, almorzar o cenar en la espectacular terraza acristalada de una fortaleza es todo un lujo.

El local es un gran mirador hacia la marina de Arrecife donde también podemos contemplar las esculturas de La Marea Creciente (Jason deCaires Taylor). Una carta menú en la que la vanguardia se une a la cocina fusión dando lugar a atrevidas mezclas de sabores en las que la cocina internacional y canaria son protagonistas. Adaptada a las actuales demandas, nuestra carta cubre necesidades vegetarianas y celiacas.

También oferta opciones para compartir y degustar con propuestas novedosas bajo productos denominación de origen Lanzarote. Si estás buscando un lugar romántico en la Isla, esta es sin duda tu mejor opción. Los viernes y sábados al caer la noche podemos disfrutar de proyecciones audiovisuales y DJ.
