“New Location Great Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Most people reading this who know Corralejo will know Dovela Restaurant in the old town just down from the ‘music’ square. They have now moved to bigger premises on the waterfront at avenida maritime 10.
The restaurant is brand new with the familiar black and pink table dressing. For those visiting for the first time the food is Basque style with Spanish/European influence. We found the food excellent, better than hotel standard and just not quite reaching fine dining.
This is a good restaurant during the day or night and worth the trip, however if it’s your birthday keep it quite as ‘Happy Birthday’ over the load speakers is LOUD!

“Change of venue but quality has been preserved....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The restaurant has changed premises onto the sea-front, but the quality is still top notch. You will be made to feel special and the menu will give you some difficult decisions to make! Don't worry though, because I have always enjoyed what ever I've chosen, with the taste as good as the presentation. On this visit I chose the duck, which was delightful. The house white was very good too. If you're eating in dovela tonight, you're in for a treat. Enjoy!

“dovela”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

The best restaurant in Correlejo, the clams are divine the steaks great - indeed the menu is first class. But I was gutted to find it closed on my recent trip - but it reopens on the beach front in the town in bigger premises soon. So I will have to look forward to my next trip

“something special amongst less than average”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Corralejo has hundreds of restaurants - more or less with the same food, the same uninspiring ambiente, different mainly in having ocean view or not. Dovela, a little restaurant in the older part of the city is a wonderful exception. Special dishes deliciously prepared, a good wine list and still reasonable prices. Say greetings to Jose if you go there - he is the charming and very attentive owner who adds to the pleasure of dining there.

“Excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

This is a small place just off the music square and well worth a visit. We had a starters of prawns and goats cheese with ham followed by fish of the day.Both courses were well presented and washed down with a good quality house Rioja. Slightly more expensive than other establishments but worth it.
