There are many natural phenomena in the island of Lanzarote. One of the most impressive ones is found inside the Timanfaya National Park. EL VULCAN GRILL is a natural barbecue improvised over a rock on top of an opening of with a depth of several meters where there is volcanic activity registered. This oven-grill was designed by César Manrique and it is really impressive to see how they place grills over this hole and to see how they cook all kinds of meats and fish, just like in a regular grill.
There is no fire, but if you place your hand you can get burned or lose your eyelashes if you get your head too close. I got close, since I was curious, and you can see from the picture the heat that comes out. This barbecue is next to the restaurant Los Diablos and behind the buses that take you to a guided tour of the volcanoes.
I recommend you to see this place after the volcano route. Greetings to all.
It is a calm and charming corner that has a terrace over the water. It is located in Quemada Beach, a fishermen town that is small and welcoming, with beaches made of black rock.
They will surprise you with the different varieties of fish of the area, some delicious steamed cockles and “claclas”, a type of mollusk similar to goose barnacles and limpets that only live in Lanzarote and Chile and taste like the sea, delicious.
It is a special and calm corner where you can enjoy good food.
Potatoes, barnacles, and fish are surrounded by the delights of Lanzarote. This is a village with an energy that comes from being at the very end of Timanfaya Park, outside of all the bustle. This is a great little corner to get to know Lanzarote. The service was friendly and quick, the food, simple and rich. What more can you ask from a daytime restaurant?
The Bodega de Santiago is one of the most charming restaurants in Lanzarote, a recommended place for a special diner in the southern part of the island, in the town of Yaiza.
The restaurant is located outside of town, in a traditional house that has been restored and it has a fantastic terrace. The service is very good and they have a good selection of local wines (pay special attention to the white local wines). I recommend the sirloin with apricot sauce.
It's in the area called El Golfo. It has a volcanic formation and there's a green lagoon. The restaurant is pretty much on the sea. You can dine on local fish and many other things. It's neither expensive nor cheap, somewhere in the middle. It's a cool place to eat while watching the sea. There's smoking permitted outdoors. I wouldn't mind going back.
We went as a family to this restaurant and didn't want to leave! I recommend it!! Excellent pizza with a thin base, as well as a wide variety of salads. It was exquisite and friendly. The desserts and coffee were very good. The best was the price! Excellent quality at an affordable price!
The place was heavenly, the waiters are not nice, the fish was good but presented poor, no salad , 3 potatoes and not potato chips here. To eat the portion of one person and pay 45 euros without dessert or coffee . I won´t return.
Following the recommendations of Minube.es, I ate at this fresh fish restaurant. It was no frills, but very good quality. The terrace had great views of the ocean and was cloaked in a breeze. The service was very friendly and professional. The fish of the day was €32, enough for 2 people. Price/quality ratio was good.

My son and I were tired of searching for restaurants in the gulf, so we decided on this one! There was a very friendly local who loved to talk. He convinced us to have lunch. We had to thank him, because after a bad experience in another town, we were happy to get good food. We ate a great big, very fresh fish of high quality and affordable. Definitely recommended, greetings.
On Lanzarote, In Yaiza, there is the "Amura" Restaurant. It has a wonderful terrace, where you can spend time with family or friends in a comfy room that makes you forget that you're in a restaurant. The service is nice, attentive and thorough. The interior has modern decor. The menu is very complete.
