Qué Muac (Castillo de San José)
A privileged location restaurant Castillo de San José (Qué Muac) to appreciate the beauty of the coast of Arrecife. The adaptation of culinary proposal has again put this gastronomic point as an ideal to top off your visit to the capital of Lanzarote.
Variety in the range of pinchos and tapas, with local produce andcompetitive menu for 15 euros / person make the restaurant has regained its former vigor.
The extraordinary location of the Castillo de San José makes the resort adapted by César Manrique as one of the highlights to appreciate the beauty of Arrecife´s marine locations. Only Arrecife Gran Hotel, at the other end of town, can compete with attractive panoramic obtained from the dining restaurant of the historic fort.
A view is added to the atmosphere of maxim own peace of art spaces and nature designed by Manrique. The vast semicircular window opens to the bay allowing contact with arrecifeño marine world, from the little boat returning from fishing to imposing presence of Naviera Armas docking slow motion in the nearby port of Marbles. The music provides the ideal soundtrack based jazz and soul, to surrender to the placidity.
The Castle Restaurant has been modernized. Since opening was erected in one of the gastronomic references of the island, but with the passage of time was declining.The recent update of its proposal under the name Qué Muac, gives it a touch with the times, also increased elasticity to meet the demand of tourists... and the resident.
Lanzarote products are the main protagonists of a letter that has been extended with a varied range of tapas. The cheese, potatoes, fish and shellfish flesh out some tasty kebabs presented with grace. For tasting no better option than to go with the chef, preferring the menu of the day (15 euros / person) which includes seven courses and a glass of wine (minimum two people).
In our case we prefer the letter, traveling from the garden and sea corral. Grilled zucchini stuffed with mushrooms and smoked bacon gratin in Torta del Casar, peppers stuffed with fried prawns in tempura sauce and police, bomb stuffed grouper cooked in broth seafood, barbecue mojos Lanzarote cheeses, homemade cakes mushrooms, shrimp tempura gofio and hamburguesita of baifo with crispy fried onions and honey sauce. Without being excessive, the portions are not short, and in general a quantum leap kitchen is appreciated.
For dessert we ordered a couland Prince Albert, but also highlight options tart goat cheese or gofio mousse. The wine is full of Lanzarote wines, but strange lack of wines from other denominations.
Service, which accompanies professionally for the desktop should be noted. You know when you get to the castle, never far out of it. Difficult, when it starts to sunset and coastline of Arrecife is acquiring such evocative print.
In short, Que Muac and economic tapas menu again put to the Castillo de San José restaurant as a gastronomic meeting point in visiting the capital of Lanzarote.
