We come to El Cotillo for 10 days every January and always visit Rustica for dinner at least twice. Great service, food and Prosecco! Our only suggestion would be to dim the lighting as this would create a more ambient atmosphere with the candles. Lovely x

Having arrived late at our accomodation (Juan Benitez) and had trouble getting in there, we were pleased to find Casa Rustica within 100 yards and open.There was nowhere else to eat in sight. We sat outside late at night and were thrilled to find that we'd stumbled by chance on a really good restaurant. I had the mixed grilled fish... More

Two gorgeous medium rare solomillos with a peppercorn sauce washed down with a very drinkable bottle of Malbec, 50 euros including a tip, worth every penny (cent) ! We can't wait to return. Service has been criticised but as we were the only customers on a Monday evening, late'ish around 9.30pm - no problems. Sitting and eating outside on a... More

We have been visiting El Cotillo for 8 years and always go into casa rustica. The food is always good and the menu never changes so you know what to expect unfortunately the last few times we ate there the service was rushed and very unfriendly but maybe that was because the restaurant was extremely busy! This time the restaurant... More

Don't miss this great place in a quiet backwater. We are real foodies and have never had a bad meal here. Gustav & Natalie are real hard working professionals producing fab food & service. They really care which does not apply to some restaurants in Cotillo! Steaks are fab, roquefort & mushroom sauce is unbeatable. Simply a friendly, easy going,... More

There are very few tables outside which is where you would need to sit to get any sort of atmosphere in this place. It has an open kitchen (which I am never a fan of) but at least it was not too obtrusive - I just do not find it a relaxing way of eating watching meals being prepped. There... More

We've been 3 times to this restaurant to have an authentic paella - but without seafood! It's been good and different every time. Their starters are great too especially their quiche.

Decided to visit here again during a recent visit to El Cotillo as I thought I had just made a bad choice of food on a previous visit. Meal started reasonably with mixed tapas and this is the reason for a poor rather than terrible rating. Salad ordered to accompany tapas was disappointing. My husband chose moussaka which was one...

We had the Canarian tapas platter for starters which we shared good selection very tasty. I had gnocchi with mozzerella and Serrano ham which was very good but too big a portion for so left half of it. Hubby had rabbit with mustard but it was a bit tough needed slow cooking. Will go back again will try something different.
