Expert review of Jardín de Cactus

Lanzarote's most scenic cafe is a lovely spot for a coffee as you drink in the view.

I think this little cafe and restaurant is really special. Where else in the world can you sit in a volcanic bowl surrounded by giant cacti? Try to come here just after lunch or just before closing to avoid the bus tours, when it is a very relaxing spot. 

Food and drink: 

Spanish snacks, tapas and sandwiches are on the menu here, along with coffee, beer and wine. 

Ambience: 

The spacious terrace has a spectacular backdrop of volcanic landscape, giant cacti and big skies. 

Service: 

This is essentially a cafe, so dont expect silver service, although the staff here are helpful enough.

Location: 

It's in the middle of the Cactus Garden in the village of Guatiza on a main road.

Price advice: 

Expect to pay around 3 euros for a coffee and 5 euros for a sandwich.

Tables to book: 

You can't book, but try to get a table on the terrace.
