I have been to Lanzarote many times but had never visited here before. I saw that a band I wanted to see where playing there during our stay so I contacted them and they passed on the details of Geraldine so I could book a...table. We booked the dinner eve and all I can say is wow! Firstly it was superb value for money. The setting was exquisite and the service second to none. The band Concrete jungle were amazing and had the crowd going all night! All I can say is if and when u are on the island make it your business to drop in to enjoy the lovely surroundings and fab set up. I’ve been for breakfast, lunch and dinner and was not disappointed once! I’ll be back soon 🤟More

Love this place. Stunning views across the ocean. Haven’t eaten here for a few years but decided to on this occasion. We had one pork ribs and one fillet steak with Alioli, both cooked to perfection. Also a great place for drinks

Our visit to Cafe la Ola was one of the highlights of our holiday. The location is stunning, the food was delicious and the DJ followed by live saxophone ensured we danced all afternoon. Would 100% recommend

Cannot think of anything about this place that isn’t fantastic. Great drinks, lovely food and an amazing location. Made even better now they have Concrete Jungle band playing a regular slot.

When we are on holiday we like to go to nice places for lunch and to sit next to the sea in a relaxed restaurant. We also like to go for a nice evening meal with good service and food. Sometimes we like to listen...to live music and finish the night off with a cocktail or 2. Cafe la Ola has it all. The setting is amazing and there are plenty tables close to the beach as well as lots in the shade and it is very relaxed. The snack menu at lunch time had plenty of choice but the full menu is also available. We loved to have a tuna salad each and share a portion of chips all washed down with a couple of ice cold beers. Thanks Marco for looking after us at lunch time. The place livens up at night and we had a couple of meals in The Grill but sometimes just called in for a last drink and listen to the band on our way home. Service was always excellent no matter how busy the place was.More

My boyfriend and I had dinner here a couple of times during our stay in Lanzarote. The food was excellent and the service was even better again! It had a great atmosphere and was extremely busy each night we arrived. German was serving us all...night and he was extremely professional, friendly and attentive. We would highly recommend coming here. Thanks to all of the staff which were amazing!More

Hi. I have just read a posting on Facebook that says the owner is thinking of opening in September but it depends on tourist numbers. Closed for now.
