The QuéMUAC Restaurant is located, like we have mentioned above, at the Castillo de San José which is located on Arrecife’s waterfront as you head from the capital’s city centre towards Costa Teguise, on the (very appropiately called) Carretera los Castillos.

The restaurant itself is accessed by a path to the left of the entrance of the Castle, which hosts the MIAC (short for Museo Internacional de Arte Contemporáneo) – Lanzarote’s International Museum of Contemporary Art.
