friendly service and good food

We had the seafood mixed grill - fantastic amount, well cooked and obviously fresh fish. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

We eat here every year for our wedding anniversary. Love the restaurant and the staff. Great menu with some lovely Spanish dishes, we had a chicken and vegetable paella for 2 it was superb. Lovely view over the bay. We missed chatting with Jessica,s father this year, who has retired. Definitely one to visit during your stay, never been disappointed.

This cosy, informal restaurant overlooks the old harbour. It wasn't busy, but nonetheless the service was prompt, very friendly and struck just the right balance between attentiveness and giving you space. The menu offered a wide choice, though - typically for this location - dominated by seafood selections. Lovely meal and excellent value for money.

I previously have had many excellent meals at La Capitana. We were in El Cotillo for 3 weeks from 1st October 2015. The place looks the same, the menu is the same and there is the same nice waitress. I had Cordon Bleu and my wife had sole. We had a bottle of house wine. My Cordon Blue was hard... More

Wide selection of dishes with a great view out over the sea and food cooked to perfection. I had the steak with pepper sauce and Mrs had fish dishes both times we went.

Very friendly staff and a great view from this restaurant. Steak was good quality but a little undercooked and they made the effort of making a fish dish for 2 for just one. I would go again!

Visited with my dad and my partner. We skipped starters but were given bread unrequested and this was added to the bill. My partner and dad shared a mixed grill which they enjoyed. I ordered chicken breast plain, on arrival of food I was given half a roast chicken but as the waiter was so nice I thought I'd just... More

This place has changed hands numerous times over the last few years, being a Mexican restaurant a while ago. That was not great but now big improvement. Lovely sea views and you can sit out of the wind outside or inside. Great menu, food good and house wine excellent. Staff very friendly. Would recommend.

Very good food with a sea view over the surfing beaches. Alfonso is a particularly good waiter! Seafood and steak are both good. Nicely priced for the bigger family

The best thing about this restaurant was the view from the terrace. When we visited we were the only couple in there and this was possibly a clue to the quality of the food. i ordered chicken in a curry sauce and the food that came was disgusting: the sauce was bright yellow and had split and the chicken underneath...
