Cantina has been created as a place to enjoy Lanzarote local life, food, wine and culture. We have a passion for our island and try to embrace the soul of local living.
Our style of cooking is simple, honest and authentic allowing the flavors of the natural ingredients to speak for themselves.
Local specialities include amazing goats cheeses in many varieties like paprika, smoked or fresh. fantastic fresh veg and lettuces, herb based mojo sauces with traditional Canarian wrinkly potatoes ( originally introduced by the British ) Gofio, from ground maize flour which would have been produced in the many windmills you will see in the country fields, sweet potatoes, figs and cactus prickly pears.
Here at Cantina we love to use as much local produce as possible and work hard with local farmers to ensure that most of our supplies are from the island. here in Teguise we have sourced suppliers of all our herbs like Rosemary, Coriander, Thyme, Dill, Parsley, Mints, Basil, Rocket and Sage, All of our lettuces and now most of our fresh veg.
Recently we have seen a huge improvement in local wine quality. Production in Lanzarote is costly as the strong winds and high temperatures produce a low yield, however our climate and mineral rich earth make for some fantastic grapes with a low water content leading to rich, fruity wines of the white Malvasia variety and some of the worlds best Moscatels. Although too costly too export local sales and the increasingly wine savvy tourist has lead to a huge increase in local wine production allowing local bodegas to employ prestigious eneologists further improving the wines available on our tables. At Cantina we sell over 20 local wines by the glass and push hard to promote these local gems. look out for the El Grifo Coleccion Malvasia, the semi-dry from Bermejo or the dessert Moscatel from Guiguan otherwise ask our waiter for our new tasting board of 5 local wines and find your own favorite.
