About us

We are Davy & Miet, vegetarians and inseparable since 2000 and roaming the globe in search for a special place to call our own. We spent nine years living in Antwerp, the second largest city in Belgium (remember, it’s not a big country) before moving to Lanzarote in October 2016.

You might wonder: “Was it a good decision?” Our answer is definitely yes! After a long quest for the right location, we launched our cosy plant-based restaurant named Bistro Árbol in Puerto del Carmen, Lanzarote! We have two lovely trees on our terrace hence the name. What more would you want on an island where there are barely any trees? And then there’s also the tree of life and the family tree… it’s just a great symbol for who we are and what we stand for.

Our interests are vegetarian & vegan food and the enjoyment of cooking for others along with great music. Additionally, we love to travel and are genuinely interested in the world and its (food) cultures. And it’s been our aim to unite all these elements in Árbol. We are sure that you will know what we are talking about after visiting us.

Our philosophy

Soul food – Belgian 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 vegetarian and 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.

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

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. So 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 vegetarian, vegan (yes, also desserts! ;-)) and gluten-free dishes, all homemade and with love. All our dishes are to share. We don’t do individual platters. 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. In summer we are super excited to use our own mangos from our garden for making desserts or chutneys.

Our house wine comes from the peninsula but all our other wines originate from the Island. We’ve made a selection of 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’.

Being good Belgians, we can’t live without a good beer. We serve the best lager of Spain ‘Estrella Galicia’ on draft and in bottles we have a great selection of Belgian beers. Don’t forget try the local Jable – Malpeis, it’s a great ale beer produced in Tinajo or the NEIPA (New England IPA) from Nao in Arrecife. Salud!

Andy from Andy Brot makes the burger buns especially for us and we also use their brown 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)
