Dining at La Cabaña is an event unto itself. Between the warm welcome offered to every guest, the exquisite décor and the delicious cuisine, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped into a movie scene designed just for you.

Balagué is located on the grounds of the Museo Lagomar. The spacious attraction features natural lava caves, a bar and an art gallery on site, all adding to its appeal. Book a table at night when the caves are lit and you can explore before or after your meal.
El Guachinche de Luis
El Guachinche de Luis is the place to go for authentic Spanish food at a great price. The restaurant doesn’t look like much inside or out, but the homemade food draws an enormous crowd throughout the day. Have a seat on the terrace and enjoy watching the views.
