Top 10 Lanzarote Restaurant Suggestions

Please read through my top 10 favorite restaurants around the island of Lanzarote and please also feel free to go and try them for yourselves!

Almacen De Sal – Situated right on the sea front promenade in the center of Playa Blanca, this restaurant is my favorite. This restaurant used to be an old salt repository so has bags of character and charm. The service is second to none as is the cuisine. There is an extensive menu to choose from and I have many favorites on the menu including the onion soup, advocado with prawns, Steaks, fish, paella, to name but a few! This restaurant also has live piano music and is very child friendly yet also romantic.

Restaurante Playa Quemada – Playa Quemada. We would definitely recommend this restaurant if you are prepared to go a little off the beaten track! From Playa Blanca is it just after Yaiza and there is a right turn that takes you down to Playa Quemada. Do not wear your high heels as the car park leaves a little to be desired! This restaurant serves fabulous food and there is always excellent fresh fish available. Booking is definitely advisable.

Mirador de Lobos – Playa Blanca, next door to the entrace of the Natura Palace Hotel. This restaurant is a firm favorite in our family as it is definitely child friendly and has an extensive menu. The fresh fish and any specials of the day are worth trying.

Don Camillo – Playa Blanca, on the sea front promenade towards the harbor. Don Camillo offers excellent international cuisine with an extensive menu. There are three different kitchens, including a steak grill and pizzeria. The T-bone steak is wonderful but do not order it unless you have not eaten for a while!

Barbados Casinos

Barbados is an island situated in the western part of the Atlantic Ocean and east of the Caribbean Sea measuring only 166 square miles. However, its small size does not stop the tourists from all over the world to pour in every year in order to enjoy its beauty and rich culture.

There is only one casino in Barbados situated in Christ Church and it is called D’Fast Lime. The D’Fast Lime casino stays open 24 hours a day and offers 25 slot machines. The casino also has a bar on its premises, but both the services of the bar and that of the casino are restricted to those of 18 years of age and above.

The Barbados casino may be small, but it is very popular with both the locals and the tourists, as well, and it is busy at any time of the day and night. You will need to carry recent photo identification in order to play in the casino, even though the same may not be demanded always to have an alcoholic drink.

Barbados casinos are not the only form of gambling on the island; horse racing is legal and enjoyed widely by both locals and tourists. The parish of St. Michael has the only horse track called Garrison Savannah, and regular races are held there, such as Heineken Stakes on Boxing Day, Sandy Lane Gold Cup in March, The 5000 in February, The United Barbados Derby in August, and Banks Guineas held in March, to name just a few. In order to find out what races will take place when you will be visiting Barbados, search their official website and/or ask for details with your travel agent.

Both the casino and horse racing are legal in Barbados and strict rules and regulations apply, so you …
