Our History

Thirty years ago, we are going back to the already distant 1987, Miguel Arias was invited to transform the Bar of the Port, situated in what was then the recently-inaugurated Puerto Portals.  There was a wide gap to be filled in the commercial life of the port for those who came to visit the port on their boats, and he could spot that gap.  When they arrive in Portals, people want to have breakfast, have a good coffee and read the newspaper in peace on terra firma.  So naturally Flanigan began offering breakfast, a tradition which continues—it means that we have to be open every day and at all hours, so that our customers get the service they require at any moment.


It is a key objective for us to ensure that our customers have both a very enjoyable time and taste the most select fare.  Inspired ideas, respect for the dishes and their ingredients, courtesy and a careful balance between tradition and the avant-garde in catering.  Thanks to this philosophy, Flanigan continues to be what was distinctive about it thirty years ago: a restaurant close to its patrons, determined to achieve excellence in all aspects: an ideal place to enjoy the idyllic atmosphere of Puerto Portals.

We await your visit with keen anticipation.

Our Philosophy

Local ingredients carefully selected to produce unique dishes.  Courtesy, dignity, integrity, attention to detail and a thirst for continual innovation in our menus.  For Flanigan it is imperative that all raw ingredients are selected with minute precision in their moment of maximum splendour so that the resulting dish will be the best possible.

Flanigan’s philosophy is grounded in the concept of our restaurant as synonymous with the guarantee of quality and professional and attentive service.  Our customers must get what they are seeking: efficient and quick service, staff focused on providing the best possible service, and also something different, for we aim to be distinctive.  We also want our customers both to enjoy a delicious meal and have a happy time.

The brand Flanigan is and must always be synonymous with excellence, dedication and commitment: our philosophy centres on this.
