We decided to eat there during one of the days that we were there enjoying our family vacation in Lanzarote. In the Sailor Villas, we usually like cooking. That is because we also love to share those moments with the family that are difficult to enjoy throughout the year.
Today we decided to leave the kitchen and trythis Italian restaurant, Il Commendatore.
But, what is really priceless, it is to be able to enjoy excellent dishes on the terrace with these magnificent views.Being able to enjoy the views of the Marina and its boats, the incredible sunsets of Playa Blanca, and the relaxed atmosphere of the area.On the inside dining room, there are tables with a very careful design and a warm stay.

A pleasure

It was the deserved reward for our day effort. That is due to that, on the early morning, my 2 children and I, had been sailing with Chachi in his Carabel. He is a local character, passionated about sailing and with a lot of years of experience. He is one of those people who know how to empathize with others and quickly Engage them in pleasant conversation. If you want to know more about Chachi, check out our previous post!
The day was amazing. With a very pleasant temperature; although this is normal on the island, for us is a real gift.
With this simple sailing boat you really feel the navigation. Because with little wind, it quickly moves and takes the sufficient speed to breathe the sea breeze. It  feels so good to our lungs. The simple rigging of the mainsail and jib makes it suitable for all audiences. Leaving from Marina Rubicon itself, makes you able to decide whether to access a small cove and sail remaining sheltered from the coast. Or to venture a little more to the east to the beaches of Papagayo.

Finally, us, guided by Chachi, decided to sail to the east and also took the opportunity to give us a nice dip before returning to port. As a result, we had a really great navigation day.

From Nautic Ocean, we encourage you to enjoy this Italian Restaurant in Playa Blanca. You won’t regret it, because the combination of views + good food is fulfilling. Hence, also, the service is really good.
