We visit Corralejo twice a year and we always dine at El Sombrero on the last night of our holiday which was last night 4th July. It never fails to produce the most excellent food. Their Beach salad is definitely the best in the island. The only problem is that it doesn't leave much room for their great steaks afterwards.... More

We visited this restaurant in January 2014 after not having much joy elsewhere in Corralejo. We tried quite a few places that were reccomended but this place was a good find by ourselves by just heading out of the hustle and bustle. The staff are extremely polite and the place is set out nicely inside. This restaurant is right down... More

I found El Sombrero on Trip Advisor but they are closed wednesdays - and only open for dinner. I was SO excited to eat here and it lived up to the great reviews I read. I did not expect to see all the cows but I loved it! The garlic dip with bread - a must. I used the dip... More

What I love about this restaurant is the unique menu and table cooking style. We ordered The Sombrero; we got to cook our own slivers of steak – to our liking – with a choice of wonderful dips. To top the experience of I love their quirky cow displays.

Quality of food is second to none - Service attentive but not over bearing 3 visits in 10 days says it all, first visited here about 15 years ago and it just gets better

El Sombrero is right on the front of the harbour and offers a great menu with some really different dishes including the galleon where you cook you own steak!!! Service is very friendly and owner always comes over and introduces herself and makes sure everything is to your satisfaction

We love this restaurant. We usually order the flaming dish of chicken and pork that you cook yourself at the table! They bring out a metal triangle shape with hooks, that you put your meat/chicken on, which is lit with 3 candles underneath, and you can cook your own food in your own time. And it tastes delicious.

Went her on Friday the food is top quality. Had the fillet gallows and it was some of the best steak I have eaten. More than enough for 2 and cooked to perfection, it was recommended by an old school friend thanks Gary. If you are in Corralejo it is a must.
