The Best of the Best in El Cotillo

Gustavo is our most favourite chef in the world. His seafood dishes are quite unique and Natalie always makes you welcome. Add to this the best prices on Fuerteventura and you have it made!!!

We ate here two nights in a row. The moules in cream and garlic on the first night were truly divine. Sadly not available on the second night. The fish of the day was salmon which was good. The Ron con miel, rum with honey served gratis after the meal was a lovely touch. The warmth and friendliness of our... More

We ate here on our last night in the area, the food was excellent, a fish stew and rabbit provencal, both extremely well cooked, service was good and can understand there are so many other excellent reviews.

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
