Eating Out in Lanzarote - What to Eat?
Dine & Wine in Lanzarote

Eating out in Lanzarote is fantastic. The fine fish of the coastal towns of El Golfo, La Caleta de Famara and Órzola are a must.

Mirador del Rio is the popular landscape and view point located at 498 meters above sea level. Enjoying the breathe taking views of the northern coasts and dining at the restaurant is highly recommended.

A favorite dish with the islanders is grey or red vieja that is stewed or slit open and done on its back. Cherne (a variety of grouper), meagre and Uga salmon, the comforting fish stock or the typical home made jareas, pejines and tollos, the papas arrugadas or wrinkled potatoes (potatoes boiled with their skins on in a lot of salt which crystallises when dry and “wrinkles” the potatoes), the sancocho, with its wise combination of ingredients, the soft and cured cheeses are the popular dishes worth a taste in Lanzarote.

Looking now at wine, long ago, Carlos III and Walter Scott sang the praises of the wines of La Geria. Worthy of special merit on account of the fact that they originate in the midst of dismal beds of ash, the wines of La Geria stand out for their clearly-defined flavours. Top of the list are the malmseys with their intense aromas.

As for the wines; Local wines should be tasted from La Geria. Lanzarote possesses an Appellation d’Origine Regulating Board and produces the Canary Islands’ finest white wines. In addition, wine tasting at the El Grifo Museum is also a great attraction for wine lovers.
