Good place to eat

Try the Sombrero dish to cook your own meat and the prawn starter. A good mix of Spanish and tourists, very friendly staff.

We wanted a meal on our last evening with a varied menu...something to please everyone. Great menu, lovely lamb and fish specials. Super steak! Fried aubergine started in honey will stay in the memory. Well worth a visit and lovely setting over the bay.

We visited here early one evening, the food is good as was the wine. The scenery is lovely and a seat by the water is very relaxing. We really enjoyed our visit and would return. A lot of the menu along the water front are all the same but the menu here was a bit different with some nice specials.

.... a bit over rated given some of the hype I'd read about it. Food was ok but nothing that I was particularly blown away with. Staff were quite disinterested and simply there to do a job. There are better places I would say. ..

We ate here during our 2nd night. Half a litre of sangria, a bottle of water, bread to start. Then the tuna special and the chili con carne came to 35 Euros so not too bad. The staff were pleasant and we would go again.

We went twice to this restaurant during our week's stay in Corralejo, which says a great deal considering the number of restaurants from which to choose. The food was excellent and there are "novelty" meals such as the heated conical "sombrero" from which you hang your selection of meats and cook them to your own satisfaction. Waitresses were very good... More

Best steaks anywhere. Love this place and no holiday is complete without a visit here. The owners are lovely people. Be sure to have the sombrero or kebab, you won't be disappointed.
