Excellent fresh fish

My friends and I ate here twice during our week in Puerto de las Nieves. The staff were very friendly. Lovely fresh salads and fresh fish. If you like good wine, say so and they will bring you an extra good bottle. Very reasonably priced.

We've just had two great meals - take the advice from very friendly waiters as to the fresh catch that day. Lovely port side outlook on terrace. Very good price too! Recommended.

If I had to suggest a reason for visiting Agaete, I would hint this restaurant. We dine there for three times, and each time was fantastic. One of the best restaurant in the Canary islands.

Do not put off by the touristic looking entrance (when we saw it we left but then we decided to truct the TA reviews). Ask for the fish of the day and he can bring you the fish he has to choose. Cooked to perfection, the fish was fantastic! Other tapas also tasty. The atmosphere is lacking a bit of... More

Visited El Capita a number of times during a one week stay in the area. This was our favourite restaurant of a number which we visited in las Nieves. We tried a number of the seafood dishes and all were great and very fresh! Especially enjoyed the paella, prawns and on our last visit we had the special 'catch of... More

This review is for the El Capita in Puerto de las Nieves, at the port of Agaete. All of the seafood we ordered was cooked to death and covered with a grave sauce (pun intended). Scallops were broiled to little wads covered with green sauce. Calamari was very good. Salad looked like it came from Red Lobster, complete with tiny... More

After reading reviews here on TripAdvisor, we looked forward to some really nice fresh fish in Agaete. The service at this restaurant was excellent. Everyone was very kind, English was mediocre, but we understood what the waiter was saying. Our waiter also recommended a very nice Spanish wine to go with our fish platter. We got a small plate of... More

Specialities are fish and seafood, which you can order as multiple tapas to enjoy a varied meal. Good service: ask them to advice you on both food and local wines. Great value for money. Busy with locals in weekends, so better book ahead!

The owners of this beautifully situated restaurant are warm and friendly. We had the mixed grilled seafood platter for two and it was more than enough. Extremely fresh and so well prepared! A bargain at just 24 euros! The view of the fishing harbor is a complete bonus.
