We have dined in El Sombrero on several occasions and have always been delighted with the food. The menu has changed over the years and never fails to amaze with the choice on offer.Good Spanish food and excellent service.If you have never experienced this establishment you must try the "gallows " or cook your own meat on the sombrero.(Health and...

Visited 4 nights out of 10, including our Christmas Day dinner which is testament to how highly we rated El Sombrero. I had a selection of meals all of which were excellent, the steaks were especially outstanding and the creme Catalina was to die for. We were made to feel very welcome and comfortable on Christmas Day, there is always... More

Simple dishes but tasty, good quality and well prepared. Not expensive. 4 euros for a kids menu and average 10-12 euros for a main dish. Friendly service. Cosy restaurant.

Visited here twice on our week's hol in Corralejo. Food stunning, nice "family run" feel about the place.Advise booking as it's not very big and can get busy.Get a table in a corner, out of the way of other diners passing by.

Thought we would try somewhere different on a return visit to Corralejo. Did not start too good as sat next to toilets at the back. A lot of meals seem to come with French fries, not our preferred choice. Meal was ok but nothing special, mixed grill a bit small.

Lovely atmosphere. We had one of the speciality sharing dishes which was very enjoyable. House wine great value for money. Plenty of seating inside or by the waterfront. Staff really lovely and friendly. Wish we hadn't discovered this place on the last night of our holiday or we would definitely have returned

Visited this restaurant last year to try the house specialities (The Sombrero and The Pirates Gallows) which were a superb experience. However we were puzzled as to why it did not register higher on Tripadvisor. We returned twice this year and think we discovered the reason. The Pirates Gallows and the service on our first visit was again good but... More
