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.

We received poor and unfriendly service, followed by terrible food. Frozen tiny prawns in bland pasta sauce and chicken in a strange olive and tomato sauce that I had to scrape off as it tasted so bad. Only went because of the good reviews but never again. Total waste of money. On a positive note, this was the only bad... More

We have eaten at Casa Rustica and it is excellent , always several catch of the day available , which are highly recommended. Hubby had Queen Fish last night and thoroughly enjoyed it, and as he normally does not eat fish that is recommendation indeed. Another customer who eats there regularly recommended the Barracuda as well .
