Highly recommendable Restaurant with savoury, creative and seasonal Cuisine

A true high highlight in El Castillo,  in the northwest of the island. 

Set up in the antique village store, the restaurant combines culinary delights and a beautiful ambience with a terrific view and turn your visit into a marvellous experience.

Herbs are grown in the own garden and meat as well as vegetable are supplied from the local area.

Restaurant Azul provides you with an enjoyable stylish and relaxing ambience

Only 15 driving minutes from Puntagorda, in the northwest of the island La Palma, you find the small hamlet El Castillo.

However, you won't find any castle or chateau, as you might assume by its name.

In exchange, you find the idyllic located Restaurant Azul, run by Ina Stohanzl.

During renovations of the building in 2000, for the most part, the old style of the antique village store has been preserved. 


Roof, doors, windows and tables are made of original tea wood, the heartwood of ancient Canary pine. Floor tiles are also original and handmade, as this used to be done in former times.


Both dining areas are individually furnished with loving attention to the detail.

One dining area has a fireplace for cooler days. In summer you can sit outside on the covered terrace and enjoy the culinary delights.

The restaurant offers a spectacular panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean, the scenery of Garafía and the villages Las Tricias and Puntagorda.


During almond flowering season in January/February the rural surrounding turns into a pale-pink sea of blossoms.

Ina and her female team masterly combine the Canary feeling with dishes, that are not typical for the island.

Service is exceptionally attentive and friendly. Creative dishes with local ingredients are prepared according to seasonal availability. 

Depending on the time of the year and the available ingredients the menu regularly varies. Everything is homemade, just like the delicious bread.

Most ingredients come from the island


Excellent quality is first priority.  

Herbs are grown in the own garden, vegetable and meat are supplied from the local area.


In order to enhance anticipation for an extraordinary menu, you can kick-off your meal with an aperitif with or without alcohol.

Appetizers like Zucchini-Spaghetti with Langostinos, crispy cheese wrap, fennel with chilli cream and raisins as well as the house special refreshing salad with yoghurt dressing are some culinary creations to get started with.

Restaurante Azul serves steaks, fish and a selection of vegetarian dishes. 

A popular treat is the marinated lamb fillet with rosemary. Moreover, on the menu card you often find duck and rabbit meat. In addition, there is a weekly changing four course menu.

Herb and blossom garnishing turns dishes also into a treat for the eyes.

The wine selection includes exquisite drops from La Palma like Tagalguén biológico, Vega Norte and Don Ángel.


Almond-Brownie with Mascarpone-Mousse and fresh, seasonal fruits or homemade almond ice cream are only two of many delicate desserts.

A glass of the famous La Palma Malvasía wine or liqueur along with your coffee top off your meal.

Due to a limited capacity of seats and the fact, that the "blue house" opens its doors only on Saturdays and on Sundays, table reservation is abolutely necessary!

Thanks to excellent signposting, the Restaurante Azul cannot be missed, whether coming from the LP-1 route (Puntagorda-Hoya Grande) nor from the LP-114 route (Las Tricias-Santo Domingo).

    Das mit Abstand schönste Restaurant mit der nettesten Bedienung und dem, sorry!, geilsten Rinderfilet-Steak in diesem Universum

    Spektakulärer Blick auf den Atlantik, superschönes Ambiente ohne Schickimicki, erstklassige Speißen, sehr aufmerksamer, freundlicher und unaufdringlicher Service, das beste Mandeleis, dass ich je gegessen habe, für mich eindeutig mit das beste Restaurant der Insel, Jeder Kilometer der Anfahrt hat sich gelohnt. Jederzeit wieder. Absolut empfehlenswert !!!

    Leider nur samstags und sonntags geöffnet
