Ordered seafood paella as we don't eat meat and found it had chicken in, they took it away but brought it back saying all chicken was removed! We didn't want to make a scene but I feel very angry over how they dealt with it. Would never go back or recommend it to anyone😐

The food was just ok, for me nothing special really. The place has a nice view on a little beach and bay.

Our first night in El Cotillo so unsure of where to eat. This place was busy so thought we'd give it a try. My garlic prawn starter was very nice, we both had steaks with were both good although my partner's peppercorn sauce was very salty. Nice sangria to accompany the meal. Waiting staff were pleasant and the bill at... More

We could not decide where to eat one evening, so we have chosen El Mirador. I personally made very bad choice and would not recommend set of tapas for the evening. Goat cheese was dirty on the side facing plate. I have only noticed once I almost finished it. The rest of my family was quite happy with their meals.... More

Having sat at our table of choice we watched the sun drop over the horizon and the old harbour of El Cotillo. Menus were placed and next was you ready!! No mention... More

We were hot, hungry and needed a view. The family wanted seafood so a burger bar sent towards the old harbour where we happened on the Mirador. So we went upstairs into the open air terrace at the Mirador on a Sunday afternoon and looked out over the old harbour. It was busy, lots of Spanish families, so you know... More

Good local restaurant. Friendly staff and decent reasonably priced kids menu! Steak, spaghetti, fish, chicken or burgers. I had steak with fresh goats cheese while my husband had King prawns. Nice place. Worth a visit and really good seating overlooking sea

its great to sit in the open on the first floor watching the sun set over the sea. This is a good local restaurant with no frills attached. There is an ATM 300 metres away if you arrive with no cash!
