I first reviewed this excellent seafood restaurant over 4 years ago and this month I was back! Thankfully standards are still as high and hopefully my review amongst a few others all those years ago have helped fellow travellers make a choice. For our most recent meal I had baby calamari and my partner garlic mushrooms for our first course.... More

Food (right from the sea) is delicious. We had one of our best paellas ever. Location is great too, on the waterfront in a non-touristic village. Staff was a bit strange, very stressed and had a strange kind of humour... At the end, they turned into be quite friendly.

Had a lovely meal here before heading back to the airport to fly home. The fish here is fresh and delicious. The steak was soft and full of flavour. Highly recommended. Sorry no photos, too busy eating 🍗🍺☕️

Super food with wonderful views. Every time we visit the island we have to return to El Charcon, the food and service is always very good

Love going to lunch here often for the tropical beer and prawns and recently had the paella which was very very nice. A must visit.

I loved this place. It has a relaxed, almost beach restaurant feel to it, and more importantly had the best set menu I have had for a long time and set at a fair price too! Went back for a second time it was so good.

Excellent sea food restaurant, we ordered the "cazuela" sea food casserole and it was wonderful - mussels, fish, octopus and squid in a rich tomato sauce, nothing to complain about at €11.95. The only slight gripe was that we ordered starters and all the food was served at the same time! No kids menu and not a lot of choice... More

Right on the pier in Arrieta, a lovely vacation village for locals in Lanzarote. Enjoy fresh fish in big portions, great wine and a friendly service. Complimentary Ron Miel after coffee. Kitchen open until 9pm.

Had some great food from here, the seafood casserole was lovely and full of fresh fish. The service however let the place down. There were only 2 waiters during a busy lunch time and they were quite difficult to get a hold of. Our empty plates were left in front of us for about 15 minutes a time (both starter... More
