Highchairs in Lanzarote

Going to Lanzarote tomorrow with 7 month old DS. My friend said restaurants in the Canaries generally don't have highchairs?! I have a travel one I can pack but it's quite bulky. Anyone got any experience? He's so good when he can sit and eat independently, I really don't want to have him on my lap for the whole week!

Thank you.

I'd pack your travel one. It's quite a few years since we our children were small enough to need a high chair, but we found that many restaurants at that time in the Canaries/Balearics either didn't have high chairs, or if they did, they were literally just a tall chair, that pushed up to the table with no straps or restraints of any kind.

Thanks Budgie, that confirms my friend's advice!

I used to have something like this:

Not sure that link worked, it's a fabric chair harness (Totseat), I used to take it on holidays abroad or anywhere I thought there might not be a high chair

I Was there recently and it's very family friendly and IME all restaurants have them. There are also companies which rent out baby gear such as strollers, trikes, high chairs etc

Def take the one you have. And make sure you have a decent sized changing mat too because don't expect any baby change facilities anywhere!!

Most places had them where we went. Are you taking a pushchair? We used that pushed right up to the table in places without

WeeM we were obviously in different places! Baby changing facilities everywhere where we stayed! It's an excellent choice for an off season family holiday OP

We heard that about Lanzarote and duly schlepped a travel highchair around with us. No need for it at all. Everywhere had high chairs.

We go around 4 times a year and haven't had a problem. Some have better high chairs than others but many have IKEA antilop.

Maybe I'm getting mixed up with somewhere else in Spain! I remember squatting in tiny unisex toilets to change nappies-it was ok though, just not what we're used to here!

Thank you all! DH is packing his sports gear in a massive bag and we managed to fit the seat in. It's the type you secure to a chair with straps and comes with its own little tray. We are taking a stroller which would work at a push but a highchair will be better. We're going to the North which isn't quite as touristy, and also we can use it on the beach for DS to snack without getting too sandy. I'll report back and let you know :-)

I just wanted to update on this: we had dinner out most nights and everywhere but one restaurant had highchairs. Ikea Antilops without the tray, which worked just fine for us.

Also most places had a changing table in the toilets, just like in the UK.

We were in Teguise in the north, far from the main resorts. Hope this helps!
