We discovered Macher 60 while driving from our hotel in Playa Blanca to the city of Arrecife on the island of Lanzarote. Our first impression was how beautiful the building was, and that immediately made us book a table for dinner the next day.
Indeed, the architectural project of the owner, Antonio Hernandez, is quite a sight for sore eyes.
His dream project came to life in 2006 with the name of La Tegala, now changed to Macher 60.
The concept of Macher 60 is “Gastronomy and Art”. Canarian cuisine with style. Art pieces are displayed everywhere once you step inside and make your way through the bar to the main dining room -- even in the restrooms!
As for the gastronomy part, we opted for the degustation menu called “Ruta de Sabores Canarios” with wine pairing. It came with six dishes and six wines, which was a real bargain at 38 EUR the menu, adding only 10 EUR for the wine pairing. Good value for a good meal.
Each dish was well crafted, the products and ingredients were well sourced. There were two dishes that we really loved: the green peas soup with cream and violet flowers, and the duck breast with honey rum sauce and pretty mashed potatoes. The dessert, called the Sweet Little Point, was very refreshing, made with goat yoghurt, banana and cactus jam gofio crumble.
The excellent wines were all locals except for the red wine which came from the Ribera del Duero, domain Linaje Garsea.
The service was a one-woman show, extremely efficient, nice and, most of all, she spoke good English.
The restaurant is probably one the most beautiful venues we’ve been to in the past two years. The food is good and well cooked. However, if it wishes to become a true gastronomic reference and a gourmet destination on the island of Lanzarote, the chef needs to up his game in terms of inspiration, creativity and refinement.
