Lanzarote’s popular beach resorts like Playa Blanca are crammed with restaurants serving familiar fare like seafood, steaks and pasta, which are sure to please the whole family. The marina’s restaurants have a more upmarket feel, but are still very accommodating to children, with highchairs, kids menus and baby changing facilities.

Local specialities to try include lots of freshly caught fish, paella, tapas and of course, sangria!

BabyBreaks has researched the best child-friendly restaurants in Lanzarote so you can plan your mealtimes with ease.

1. El Olivo, Playa Blanca

This relaxed restaurant boasts a fantastic location by the promenade of Playa Blanca, so it’s ideal for families who have just come off the beach. Tuck into tapas at the bar or chill out on the sea view terrace with a generous portion of paella. The children’s menu has simple dishes like chicken and chips. This is one of our favourite Lanzarote restaurants for its friendly atmosphere and good value.

2. Cafe del Puerto, Playa Blanca

Spot the yachts and boats swaying serenely in the marina as you enjoy a long lunch at this stylish Cafe and Bar in Playa Blanca. They serve excellent value, delicious pizza and lots of fresh fish. It can get busy on market days (Wednesday and Saturday) but it’s a great experience for the kids to see the fishermen bringing in their catch of the day, which will likely end up on your plate !

3. Highlander Too, Puerto del Carmen

Declaring itself “the friendliest family bar and restaurant in Puerto del Carmen”, Highlander Too attracts many young families who return here year after year . The beautifully manicured gardens welcome you, where the kids can spot koi carp, tropical fish and miniature shark in the large pond.

There’s a children’s play area too, open in the summer months, so they’ll have plenty to entertain them while you wait for your food. The sunny terrace is a lovely spot to relax with a drink after eating. There are regular family quiz nights and game show themed evenings, and new for 2019, Acoustic Afternoons on Thursdays at 4pm.

The menu has a decidedly British influence, with family favourite dishes like full English breakfast, battered cod and chips and award winning steak pie. There’s also a Gluten Free Menu, Vegetarian Menu and of course, a Children’s Menu.

4. El Diablo, Timanfaya National Park

Located within the unique volcanic landscape of Timanfaya Park, this restaurant was built by the famous Lanzarote architect César Manrique, and offers breathtaking 360° degree views of the amazing surrounds. The kids will be fascinated as they watch their meat being barbequed by the heat of the volcano, and there are almost endless photo opportunities for some great family snaps.  A really unique and ‘must visit’ Lanzarote restaurant.

5. Blooming Cactus, Puerto del Carmen​

It can be difficult to find a good variety of vegetarian dishes in Lanzarote, so meat free families should make a beeline for this vegetarian and vegan restaurant in Puerto del Carmen where you’ll find dishes full of flavour, with a Mediterranean influence, as well as some pan-Asian flavours like tofu satay and fragrant curries. Even if you’re not vegetarian, this place is well worth a visit for the tasty dishes on offer.

Blooming Cactus receives excellent reviews on Trip Advisor, and it’s likely to go from strength to strength with the rising popularity in meat-free living, so book ahead to avoid disappointment.
