    may be worth looking at helgas,just off the square in CT,i know she wants to leave,nice spot.

    helgas was sold some months ago, it is now an italian cafe, just google bars/restaurants lanzarote for sale and you will get lots of info.
    tho just be aware that the canaries are still in recession and general tax and business taxes are increasing in april. The government is getting tougher on businesses, and tax collection, also lots of hidden costs such as table tax ( paid annuallybut charged per day, per table and chair), social security payments and self employed tax!!!
    not trying to put you off just letting you know that its a huge struggle for lots of business owners at the moment! good luck!
