The breathtaking location of Castillo de San José makes the tourist spot adapted by César Manrique one of the best noteworthy places to appreciate the beauty of Arrecife. Only the Arrecife Gran Hotel at the other end of the city can compete with the attractive panoramic view from the restaurant dining area of the historic fort.

The view is complemented by the incredibly relaxed atmosphere, so typical of the art-nature spaces designed by Manrique. The vast semicircular window opens onto the bay allowing contact with the marine world of Arrecife, from the little boat returning from fishing to the imposing presence of the Naviera Armas, docking in slow motion in the nearby port of Los Mármoles. The background music provides the ideal jazz and soul-based soundtrack to indulge in the placidity.

The Restaurant del Castillo has been modernised. Since it first opened, it has turned into one of the gastronomic benchmarks of the island, but over time it was declining. Its recent renewal, under the name Qué Muac, brings it up to date, also with increased flexibility to meet the demands of the tourists…and residents.

In our case we prefer the menu, with treats from the garden, sea and corral. Roasted courgettes stuffed with mushrooms and smoked bacon gratin in Torta del Casar, peppers stuffed with tempura-fried prawns and carabinero sauce, stuffed stone bass cooked in a seafood broth, barbecued Cheese with Lanzarote mojos, mushroom croquettes, prawns in maize meal tempura and goat hamburger with fried onions and honey sauce. Without being excessive, the portions are not small, and in general a leap forward in terms of quality in the kitchen can be appreciated.

For dessert we ordered a Prince Albert Couland, but also the goat’s cheese tart or maize meal mousse also looked lovely. The wine list is full of wines from Lanzarote, but there is a strange absence of wines from other denominations.

The service is also noteworthy, which is professional table service. You know when you get to the castle, never the moment of leaving it. It’s difficult when the sun starts to set and the Arrecife coastline takes on such an evocative appearance.

In short, Qué Muac and its economic tapas menu put the Castillo de San José restaurant back as a gastronomic rendezvous spot when you visit the capital of Lanzarote.
