Fantastic fresh seafood with amazing views

We had two memorable meals at La Vaca Azul in July 2015. We were lucky enough to get a table overlooking the sea on both occasions which definitely added to the experience.

Fish, fish, fish. Every morning the restaurant gets it delivery of fresh caught fish. I think this is one of the best places to eat them. Not only are they perfectly cooked, the view over the sea is stunning. If you can make sure to visit it an hour before sunset, have a table on the top floor and wath... More

The restaurant has lovely views over the harbour. With amazing sunsets. The food i would recommend would be the steaks or the fish, which are all very tasty but let down with a heavy price tag compared to the quality you can get else where in the village.

Have been going to El Cotillo for over 20 years & have given up trying to have a good meal here! Unfortunately the only positive thing I can say about it is that it's in a nice spot with lovely views over old harbour.

Not much to eat if you're a vegetarian. The wife's fish was good, but not spectacular for the price. The outside terrace was closed, and we were seated inside in a draft. As a result, some of our party with many children got a cold.
