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

visited a couple of times just for pre-drinks and once for a meal. For the pre-drinks you get some lovely free garlic bread! and the wine is served in a massive glass !!!!!!

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

Ate here 4 times on our 2 week holiday, staying in the apartments in the same block as the restaurant, it was that good. The ravioli "specials" were particularly superb as was every other dish we tried from their fairly extensive menu. Must mention the staff who were so helpful when I (stupidly) left our apartment keys in the locked... More

This family run Italian restaurant became a firm favourite and was always pretty busy for dinner. While we were there, clients included several Italian families. When it was chilly and indoors was full they took an outside table in for us which is typical of the service here. They will always go the extra mile. As portions are very generous... More
