What to do for Christmas Dinner in Lanzarote?

In the Spanish culture Christmas Day is usually spent at home with the family, so most Spaniards don't go out to dine on this day.

Most of the restaurants will have a special Christmas menu, usually with British or Irish traditional dishes.

Christmas is considered high season in Lanzarote, so the best restaurants will be fully booked with months in advance.
