For our lunch we chose lasagna (partner) and grilled tuna (me), really enjoying both. Relaxed atmosphere, very friendly staff and more than decent orices. A good find.

Returned to tipico canaria this year for our joint birthday meal. We booked ahead as we wanted a specific table and this year Playa Blanca a lot busier. As usual we were greeted like old friends, the menu was wonderful, and the waiter as usual gave pointers on the specials. Food excellent (as per usual) good sized portions, and best... More

ate here as part of party of eight and found it fitted with my expectation of a prom restaurant. Food was no more than average in fact least enjoyable squid meal I have had for a very long time and salmon considered not much better. Service was ok and prices in line with prom position. I doubt we will venture... More

We fancied tapas for lunch and gave this restaurant a try. Really excellent, large portions, friendly service, we had 3 beers between 2, prawns in oil and garlic, grilled sardines and tuna salad all for 22 euros (for 2) including service. We also had a complimentary liqueur after our meal. It is right on the front at Playa Blanca, next... More

Friends of ours living in Playa Blanca brought us to this wonderful restaurant on our first night and we liked it so much, we went back again on our last night! The staff were wonderful, friendly and attentive. Chateaubriand for 14.50 and flambeed at the table. Starters, salad, wine etc all wonderful. All in all, great experience and lovely view... More

I've lost count of how many times I've been to Tipico. The first time was in 2009 (when we went last December one of the waiters had moved to a restaurant nearby?). We will be back in Playa Blanca in 23 days so we will be going back for, tapas, steak, fish, tortilla or what ever takes our fancy- Beer,... More

Upon arrival in Lanzarote, the Tipico Canario was the first restaurant my wife and I visited in Playa Blanca for an evening meal. There are many such restaurants dotted along the promenade from the harbour to the main sandy beach and it is difficult to know what one is for you, coupled with the fact that the waiters are hustling...

We have eaten on a number of occasions when visiting the island and this visit did not disappoint. Service was very friendly and the guys were very attentive. Apart from the very welcome beer the tapas were great and a new favourite was found in the squid. Going back there tomorrow.,

Been several times over last two months. Still fantastic tapas and really good sangria (litre perfect for two). Only ever had long lingering lunches not evening visits, but food the same. Best lunchtime visits are when it's high tide as the waves crash over the walls. But generally good to watch the world go by. The staff are efficient, polite... More
