you can sit and watch the sun drop into the sea in this little laid back Italian restaurant. I had the spinach and blue cheese risotto - gorgeous. Limoncello on the house to finish.

I always trust a family run restaurant where ever I choose to go! Sotavento has great and genuine food, a great choice of menu and each dish is very abundant. Even with a small beer they will give you a complimentary small bruschetta's. On the plus you also get a priceless panoramic view.

We're currently living in El Cotillo for one year and have tried all the restaurants over the months. This week we had friends staying in the village who wanted to taste what the top restaurants had to offer. We did the rounds and the overall conclusion was that Sottovento was by far the best of the bunch. Good food, honest... More

We went for a dinner & chosen meals from the daily special board. We had wild mushroom & truffle tortellini and crab & salmon tortellini. We had Sangria with our meal which was so nice. The food was really nice, freshly made pasta with a nice sea view ;) Lovely Italian staff.

Great for sunset drinks. Garlic bread is delicious. Pasta OK. Felt more like a Cafeteria than a restaurant.
