Visited Emmax for lunch and we thoroughly enjoyed it! We had one stone bass and one blue marlin, both dishes really excellent with a minimum of fuzz to distract from the main event, the fish! Very tasty, cooked to perfection and with a very nice white from El Grifo just a perfect way to compensate for a long, hot day... More

We always visit Emmax on Playa Honda when on Lanzarote. The restaurant is set on the walk way, overlooking the beach. The menu is constantly changing - only a few dishes stay the same.These seem to be favourites that just cant come off the menu. Lots of choices för vegans and vegetarians. Fantastic, high quality produce as well as the... More

Right on the sea front, freshly made pasta with generous sauce. If you're bored of tapas this place is worth a visit as they do good pasta.

Situated on the promanade in Playa Honda.It is very popular with both tourists and locals.The food is a little different from the old school tapas places one can find on the sea front. We ordered a bottle of wine with our food(red Bermejo from Lanzarote)As the waiter was opening the bottle,the neck at the top broke off but he still... More

We stopped for beer after we'd been shopping and the server couldn't have been more helpful....especially when he switched from Spanish to English to German depending on his customer! The food looked fantastic and had we have been there longer we would definitely had something to eat!
