Nice staff, lovely fresh food. The Paella is enormous and stuffed full of fish and seafood. The Octopus starter was lovely. Great views of the Ocean, try and catch the sunset

Went there for lunch on a Monday 12th, we shared a starter of fish croquets & then a seafood & fish paella; it was really good. The position of the restaurant, right on the harbour, is smart. Just wish we could have had the hire-car longer because we'd have visited El Cotillo again and, it must also be said, this... More

Went there because was recommended in the travel guide. And also because on my short holidays in Fuenteventura, me and family we really liked the place, El Cotillo. The restaurant has a fantastic location and we sat in the balcony, with the full view of the small bay. We rather had tapas because we just think they are delicious. The... More

If you are in Fuerteventura a visit to El Cortillo fishing village and harbour is essential – for lunch at one of the atmospheric rustic fishing village restaurant but also to see the dramatic waves. We chose one, La Vaca Azul, right on the tiny harbour so we could sit upstairs so we could look out to see. The fish... More

There is not much you can say about this restaurant, you have to experience it yourself! The fantastic view, the excellent service, the fair prices, the large portions, the extremely high quality of the food. This restaurant is ingenious, I would recommend it to anyone. We got a fish comletely covered up in salt, which was set on fire in... More

The staff are friendly and helpful. They served us a starter of Calamari big enough for 3 people but only charged for 1. My daughter and I... More

We first visited Vaca Azul in 2013 and our second visit was just as good . The setting is superb ( get a table on the roof ) and the food is fantastic all served by well trained and friendly staff . The only thing to watch for is when they bring you your fish to select - they brought... More
