Paella to share with a nice view.

Ordered a Mixed Paella which was quite a large portion. I believe it could feed three or a ravenous two. The staff were nice and attentive. But, may be a bit slow with your requests. The view from the top was quite nice, it was overlooking the old harbour. But be wary, it can be very windy.

it was the best meal of my entire stay on the island. Lovely setting watching the old port.well treated by staff ,being a single woman alone.Beautiful fresh fish. The only disappointment was that they don't do the iced coffees until June. Delicious black seam bream.

I have used this restaurant several times and it never fails to impress. The outside seating area is a must on a nice sunny day...but watch out for those strong rays of sunshine!!! As you can expect for a beach view and sea view location, the place can get super busy, but the staff will always try to get you... More

After reading all the positive reviews, we wanted to check out ourselves. Great location (great view to sea/ small harbor), great food (fish of course), great staff (very helpfull, speak lot of languages, give good advice), great wine list, great value for money. I will go back for 100% sure.

We had a great evening. The waiter messed up our order a bit, but still: great location and view from the terrace, and fantastic food: the fish soup, which was an at-least-par, if not better, copy of French fish soup, was great, same as for fresh fish and the goat stew. We wouldn't hesitate a second to come again.

The restaurant used to be the best in town but has changed hands several times in recent years and also chefs. The service was not what it was and the food was smaller portions, poorly presented,cold in places and the vegetables arrived after we had eaten the main course. The excuse was that they were having problems in the kitchen... More

Great restaurant with great choices. I had grilled fish and I think that was one of my best meals I had in restaurants. The view is stunning. Highly recommended.

We were able to watch the kids playing in the rock pools while we enjoyed a nice glass of wine. Search twoplustwocrew La Vaca Azul for some video. Go for a downstairs outside table,if you have kids, there is a stairway down to the... More

This restaurant was perfect from every point of view. Excellent staff, very friendly, we had the best table, number 55 :), with a view on the ocean. The fish in salt, we tried two different ones, done the same, were super fresh and tasty. The desserts (cheese cake and special from Fuerteventura: mousse de gofio) made me want to go... More
