Playa Blanca is the third largest resort in Lanzarote, known for its array of postcard-pretty beaches and tranquil atmosphere. It offers excellent outlets for those who enjoy water-based activities, not to mention shopping, segway tours and nightlife too. It's also known of course for being especially good for family holidays, and happily there's a great selection of holiday villas for you to choose from when planning a visit. 

But the question we're interested in today is: what about the food?

Well, we’re here to tell you the food is every bit as divine as its beaches and we’ve even taken the trouble to handpick the restaurants you must go to if you’re ever lucky enough to visit.
