We love The Lighthouse because of its elegant decor (think coastal) and its well-priced, high quality burgers, ribs, lovely salads and homemade cake. Add the excellent view out over the marina and the cool music, and you have a quality café in an excellent location. Go at sunset for a cocktail with the sun going down behind the boats in the marina and the palm trees.
We stumbled across it while photographing the town, stopped for a burger and a salad and were impressed with the food and friendly service. Since then, lots of people have told us that it's a great spot in south Gran Canaria's local town.
The Lighthouse not that easy to find if you don't know Arguineguín because it's a little out of the way; Walk about 100 yards past the beach and up on the platform overlooking the marina. It's here on Google Maps.
It's a great place to go after a walk around the Arguineguín market on Tuesdays, or for a drink after a day on the beach.
The Light House is also perfect for families with kids because the area around it is car free and it has a play house and kiddie table. If the terrace is full, don't wory as the interior of this cafe is a pleasure to be in as well.
