Fish for two. Just perfect

Fish for two was presented and cooked to perfection. We had garlic focaccia for starters, the whole dinner was delicious. Highly recommended

We have been visiting this restaurant for years since they first started out and were situated in the El Carmen building and have always found the staff welcoming and the food good.

I live nearby and come to sottevento at least every week. Huge menu and portions that even a hungry surfer can't finish! The best part is the warm welcome and friendly staff. I can't recommend it enough. The house specials and gnocchi are always delicious

Cocktails were good, service was w as excellent however the mixed grill was average. Some of the meats cooked were a bit dry and needed a little more flavour. Nonetheless, we will no doubt to back there again next year.
