This beautiful little italian run restaurant is fabulous. Go for sunset and order a mojito - you will never have a better one and watching the sun go down from Sottovento's prime beach front position is perfect. The pasta on the specials board is unbeatable. it is seriously the best ravioli I have ever eaten and the tomato sauce is... More

Huge portions and will put any leftovers in a doggy bag. We had Raviolli with truffle, Raviolli with Crab. Gorgeous. Very family orientated and good service. You can just pop in for a drink or meal and it has a fab view of the sunsets on the beach Have visited before and will again.

Visited this restaurant other night expected great things after reading reviews. Food was fine service was fine although we were totally ignored for quite a long while when we first arrived, but compared to some of the other places we visited not as good. On saying that would go back again might have just been an off night.

This was my second visit to this restaurant in El Cotillo, Fuerteventura. We were last here in January of this year and the food and ambience at that time was very good. This time however, there was no sign of Roberto and Roberta who ran it and there seemed to be a group of young inexperienced surfer-type people running the... More

We ate here twice during our stay in El Cotillo. Staff were friendly and service was good. The bruscheta for starter is gorgeous. Second time we had prawn cocktail each. Juicy prawns! House red wine was good as was sangria. Main courses were huge. I had blue cheese and spinach risotto and couldn't finish it. Second time i had tagliatelle... More

We had eaten here 3 years ago and were not disappointed when we returned! Friendly efficient service. Generous portions and the best Mojitos in the resort - and we tried a few!

For a restaurant on this Island the food was GOOD but in comparission with other places on this globe food was not special, also too much oil and salt was used. Service was friendly but that does not compensate for the taste or lack thereof. Too be honest we have been at 8 other places up to know each evening... More

I've eaten at Sottovento twice in the past year and both times it's been a great experience. The food is fresh and the portion sizes are just right. Service is friendly and multi-lingual. Pricing is more than fair. However, for me it's their Mojitos that will keep me coming back for more. This statement is not meant to detract from... More
