Great views, great service, great local cuisine in Puerto del Carmen
Best hits of Canary Islands cuisine
Sometimes it seems that Lanzarote's tourist areas are overwhelmingly awash in beach kiosks, pubs, fast-food spots, and English joints. But here and there you'll find some quite nice restaurants for a bit of actual Canarian cuisine, as well. One such is Mar Deleva, on Puerto del Carmen's Calle Los Infantes. Here's the Canary Islands' greatest hits, gastronomically speaking: papas arrugás ("wrinkled potatoes"); fried cheese; grilled local fish such as barracuda and white seabream; meat dishes with mojo picón (a garlic-olive oil dressing with chilies); and a great variety of salads. Throw in spectacular ocean views, impeccable service with careful attention to detail, and affordable prices, and this becomes a must-dine on any holiday.
