… And we are on a mission!

We love plant-based food and we want to transfer all that goodness to you! Lanzarote has so much to offer. Think locally grown fruit & vegetables, artisan beers, delicious wines and other delicacies. We invite you to our cosy bistro to share food with friends and family. Did we mention we equally love good music? That’s why we treat your ears to a great time as well. Strictly vinyl, baby!

Bienvenido a Bistro Árbol

Miet en Birgit - About us

Our philosophy

Soul food – Belgian & local beer – Fine wines

We like to be mindful consumers and therefore buy as many local products as possible. We aren’t fans of processed food, so creating tasty plant-based dishes to share with fine and fresh ingredients is our standard. We don’t go for anything less! Oh, and if you have any allergies, please let us know. We have a great selection of gluten-free dishes as well. What’s more we also like to have a good drink with a nice blending of music in a fun atmosphere.

Bistro Árbol is a place where you can have a chat with friends and family or just relax on your own while enjoying a Belgian beer or a local wine, if you feel like it.

100% Vinyl

BISTRO ARBOL 11 - Our philosophy

We love music. It’s not something that we take lightly. Hey, we spend the entire day working here so it better be in a nice atmosphere, haha. We’ve brought our Technics record player, along with our own record collection and Uncle Willy’s record collection (big up!) in order for you to enjoy real music on the real deal: vinyl.
And if you think you can do better than us, do bring your own to enjoy!



Creative food sharing

We serve 100% plant-based dishes and desserts, all homemade and with love. If you are following a gluten-free diet, you have nothing to worry about. Plenty of choice here, also desserts! All our dishes are to share. It’s not only a great way to enjoy our food, it also gives you the opportunity to try and discover more things.
If you have any allergies, please let us know and we will work something out. Check out our menu!

What you eat

The products we use
Think global, act local really means something to us. We also like to be transparent. We make everything from scratch and quality goes first. We have carefully created our menu so there is food for everyone. If it’s fast food you’re looking for, we suggest you go to Burger King. It’s just around the corner.

We use, when possible, vegetables, fruit and herbs from the island. Luckily some of the other Canary Islands are greener and therefore yield a wider variety of vegetables and fruits.

We’ve made a selection of local wines of which we think are the best. The bodegas we work with are Bermejo, El Grifo, La Grieta and Guiguan. And from time to time we also offer ‘guest wines’. Our house wine (white-red-rosé) comes from the Peninsula, the choice is yours.

Being good Belgians, we can’t live without a good beer. Try some of the best craft beers of Lanzarote – Malpeis (Tinajo), Nao (Arrecife) – or one from our neighbours in La Palma or Tenerife. We serve the best lager of Spain ‘Mahou Cinco Estrellas’ on draft and in bottles we have a great selection of Belgian beers. Salud!

Andy from Andy Brot makes the burger buns especially for us and we also use their brown and gluten-free bread. They bake the traditional German way and add no unnecessary ingredients to their dough. Plain and simple.

where we are

We are located on the beautiful island of Lanzarote. To be more precise, in Puerto del Carmen in Centro Comercial Playa Blanca, also known as Centro Barracuda. Our square may be a bit harder to find but it’s worth the while.

Points of orientation to find the square are:

• Near to Playa Chica (known for its diving classes)
• Opposite to Hotel Fariones
• Behind the Burger King (it’s useful for something, right? ;-))
• Near to the Fariones sports centre (it has a light house)
