Conveniant location but not always open?Friendly staff but long wait for mains. Kids omelette and chicken breast good. Tuna steak ok but just too well done (ie dry and chewy!) to be really enjoyable! Outside seating overlooking water available if you can get one of the tables.

We stayed in El Cotillo for 2 weeks and visited this restaurant maybe 8 times. Everywhere else we came, the service, food quality and somewhere even correct bill was comparable to La Capitana. I am saying hello to Ari and the CHEF for great times we had there and for me mostly the unforgetable fish soup! You saved our lives... More

Great view of the harbour of El Cotillo, attentive staff and good seafood. After ordering fresh fish came in and we were offered to change our orders for the fresh fish which was absolutely worth it.

....but failed to deliver I'm afraid. Visited on recommendation. Service was good and friendly but the food was certainly nothing special. Won't visit again.

Superb service. The nicest part of our meal was the starter - absolutely delicious and on the house. Apparently the place is going to change into a tapas bar.

We had the pasta and the mixed fried fish. The pasta you could make better at home and the fish was fried beyond recognition, very dry to say the least. Please chose one of the other great restaurants in El Cotillo.

Good service to be had here, with top notch wines from Lanzarote vineyards. Local fish served on large platters. Location - overlooking the old harbour - but adjacent to the Coyote bar that provides the music/noise - which isn't so great - depending on your musical tastes. This is really the 'treat' meal of your holiday.

Thank Ruthyg
