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

Delicious ! My partner thouroughly enjoyed her spaghetti and clams too . Both priced... 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!

Enjoyed a beer with a friend after cycling along the coast from Puerto Del Carmen to Playa Honda. Subsequently we took our wives along by taxi to enjoy an evening meal. With good timing we watched a marvellous sunset while enjoying our first glass of wine. We all enjoyed the main meal that was supported by good service. Local folks... More

King prawn kebab with guacamole and millet salad with nectarines were great starters. Curry fusilli with field mushrooms and coconut milk, and fresh fillet of hake with mashed sweet potatoes were both perfectly cooked and great combinations of... More

This restaurant offers a varied, fresh and exciting menu every day. Their fish is delightfully cooked and presented but in our opinion after several visits, the steak and staff stand out for special mention. The Solomillo filet of beef was exquisite, perfectly cooked, beautifully presented and served with grace and style. Both waitresses, Theresa and Rebecca are a true asset... More
