Annually “Qué Bueno Canarias Heineken” gives prizes to the top restaurants and chefs spread over all the Canary Islands, across 10 different categories like: Canarian, Creative Canarian, Fusion, Mediterranean, Seafood, International, Signature, etc.

This year, celebrating the 10th anniversary of the “Top Qué Bueno Canarias Heineken” awards has been a bit more difficult due to the pandemic, of course.

Instead, the organisation has awarded a special acknowledgement plaque to some establishments for their perseverance bringing taste, quality and creativity to the Islands’ restauration.

A well-deserved recognition that applauds the perseverance, effort and professionality of the restauration sector by bringing in added value to the touristic offer of the island by using local produce of high quality in these difficult times, becoming true gastronomy references.

These are the 29 acknowledged restaurants in Lanzarote, which are mainly concentrated in Arrecife, Puerto del Carmen and Playa Blanca with some others dotted around the island, including three of César Manrique’s CACTs (Art, Culture & Tourism Centres) – an excuse as good as any other to go around the island discovering new places or revisiting your favourite ones:
