Puerto Viejo

Puerto Viejo in Puerto del CarmenOne of the disappointments during our last visit to Lanzarote was finding that the restaurant “La Rueda II” had closed, as we had not only enjoyed the food there but also the view from the balcony overlooking the harbour in Puerto del Carmen.

Whilst we were able to eat Mexican food at the equally delicious  “Emma’s Cantina”, just a short walk away in Calle Teide, our vote for a restaurant overlooking the harbour this time went to “Puerto Viejo”, which is located almost directly below Rueda II.

We liked the fact that it was one of the few restaurants on that corner, where you did not get asked if you wanted to eat there every time you walked past.  That, the choice on the menu and the general good condition of the restaurant tempted us in.

But we also liked the fact that once seated we were still not hurried into making decisions.  The food was very well cooked and with the restaurant half-open towards the harbour, the view was good as well!

In fact, the kitchen is located next to a passage-way on one side of the restaurant, where anyone passing can see the food being prepared.  This is surely a good way of keeping up the high standard!

We can recommend the Puerto Viejo to anyone looking for good food in the harbour area of Puerto del Carmen.

Sehr geehrte Frau Schad,

    Why do restaurants believe that having a PR or a waiter who is interrupting you when you are trying to read the menu outside work in attracting diners?

    It always makes me move on to the next one!

    My thoughts exactly, although La Rueda II used to have one person who was really nice. After we had eaten there once, he always greeted us on other evenings when we walked past, without going into the sales talk to get us into the place. As a result, we went back twice that year!He had a very good tactic of giving out free lollies to children, and even then he didn’t ask try to entice the parents in. Just accepting the lolly meant that the group would stop in front of the entrance, which was enough for people to take a glimpse of how it looked inside. I’m sure that tactic got him a lot of returning trade!
