Uga, Bodega: "Canarian Cuisine" Top 5 Page for this destination Isla de Lanzarote Restaurant Tip by lomi

Isla de Lanzarote Restaurants: 135 reviews and 159 photos

On the edge of Uga vineyards (pronounced ooga) near Yaiza, this little Spanish bodega is better than anything you will find on the main resorts.

You won't be given a menu, the Canarian food is fresh every day and sourced locally.

The choice of locally grown wines from the Lanzarote vineyards is awesome.

It is a tiny restaurant that doesnt seat more than about 20 people and is located inside an old winery (bodega). It is more expensive compared to local prices, but worth every centimo!

If you are vegetarian book in advance and the chef will create something special for you.

Favorite Dish: The menu changes daily.

This is what we ate at one sitting!

Canarian Tapas
Ropa Viejo - a Canarian Soup with giant garbonzos (chick peas) in a rich sauce with chirozzo
Locally smoked salmon mousse
