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

Although towards the edge of town it is overlooking the beach and a great location. A good atmosphere with a relaxed style. Not a place to hurry but we are on holiday. food is varied and excellent. We visited twice. We can certainly recommend the house Sottovento salad which was huge, and the swordfish grilled steak. We returned a few... More

We visited this restaurant as the reviews were good. We were a bit disapppointed as the service was not brilliant and the food was ok but not excellent. We visited a lot of restaurants in El Cotilloduring our stay and I have to say this was nowhere near the top of the list. Maybe we were just unlucky.

Love this place, the staff are all very friendly and the service is good. If you are visiting Cotillo for the first time, or even the 2nd/3rd and never been, I... More

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
