El Diablo restaurant - cooking over open fire volcano

Really, nobody is going to care if the food is a little extra dry or maybe not packed as full of flavor as you might have liked. Because it was cooked by a freakin’ volcano!

It won’t be cheap, but to get the best barbecue, it’s obviously worth it. This particular volcano is on a Spanish island near Morocco. In 1970 Cesar Manrique created a restaurant called El Diablo. They grill all meat and fish straight over the open heat. Don’t worry, though. This isn’t a volcano erupting with any actual lava spewing all over the place. It’s basically just a hole of hot heat.

But it’s volcanic hot heat. How cool is that?

If you’re ever in the area, the Volcan Grill Tour is operated every Tuesday from 6 to 9:30 PM. For €50, you get a tour of the area, a three course meal, and transportation to and from your hotel. That’s really not that bad at all, huh?

I couldn’t find any really good videos but this will give you an idea of what the restaurant on Lanzarote is like.
