Naia is the best restaurant that we tasted in Lanzarote. We discovered it just by walking around
Arrecife and along its small fishing port (a smaller version of Havana’s Malecon).
Littleboboonette spotted a Michelin plate on the facade, so by curiosity we took a closer look. Luckily it was lunch time and the restaurant that was about to open. The waitress welcomed us and we chose a table on the terrace, overlooking the ocean.
First, the waitress showed us the wine list which consisted of six white wines (all of them from Lanzarote) and seven red wines from Rioja and Ribera del Duero. After ordering our drinks she showed us the lunch menu for us to choose among five starters and six main dishes, plus two special dishes “du jour”. A short menu is always a good sign as that means that the chef is cooking fresh products and ingredients which indeed was the case at Naia.
The chef, Mikel Otaegui, trained with the best chefs of San Sebastian, in the Basque country, and it shows as everything we ate at Naia was delicious. From the incredible tortilla to the sweet and salty salmon Teriyaki with Thai rice, or the sardines with avocado and cilantro, and his apple tart, the chef hit the bull’s eye with brio.
The Lanzarote white wine we took was from the Florida bodega which was excellent for the occasion.
The service by our waitress was all around very good and efficient.
Chef Mikel Otaegui’s Naia is a real discovery and a must eat if you travel to Lanzarote.
