A little out of the way gem. Great presentation of the food with taste to match, lovely staff and a well thought out menu. Nice to be able to see into the kitchen too.

From start to finish it is no surprise that Anabel and her husband run such a fabulous restaurant. The response to my email to book was almost immediate. The welcome as we arrived was very warm and friendly and the restaurant itself is unique. The decor is classy and everything down to the cutlery has been chosen carefully. There is... More

We emailed Anabel to check availability for this restaurant for our family and were delighted with the swift response she gave. We ate this evening and all of us loved our choices. We were greated on arrival and seated at our table. After ordering drinks we were given a small sample of food (prawn starter) which my children ate promptly.... More

This is a sophisticated restaurant by Playa Blanca standards and as such more for a special occasion. The front of house service and the food were excellent. The layout and design is unusual and we felt a little out of the way in the entrance area of the restaurant rather than the main dining area. Without experiencing both areas I... More

We try to visit Colacho's each time we visit Lanzarote and it just get's better and better (if that's possible). From the moment we arrived to be welcomed by Annabel everything was perfect.The food was cooked to perfection,my wife had lamb and I had steak,while the Canarian cheeses as a starter is superb. Colacho's has to be the best restaurant... More

Recommended to us by friends we booked as part of birthday celebrations. Welcomed warmly and enjoyed seeing Colacho & staff at work in the cochina. Food & wine all up to the mark, well served, presented and priced for what the restaurant is obviously out to achieve. Would we visit again, yes for another celebration, not for every day dining....

We visited Playa Blanca in March and were walking in to the old town when we passed La Cocina de Colacho. As it looked so interesting we booked a table for the following Thursday (Massive NB here the restaurant is only open Monday to Thursday!). We were warmly greeted by Anabel and shown to our table, prime position looking out... More

I have eaten out in Playa Blanca for the last week and this is by far the best restaurant I have eaten in. Located in a very modern glass fronted building a few hundred meters behind the Marina, this is a real gem! Family run, wife is excellent hostess front of house and husband is a very able chef. Service... More

Went as a special birthday treat. Amuse Bouche delicious, and starters were lovely too. The main courses were nice enough, we had lamb and hake, but nowhere near enough vegetables. One small carrot, a courgette slice and a tiny cauliflower floret with a smear of potato - such a shame as it would cost so little to improve the quantity.... More
