Had a break from an all inclusive hotel. This food tasted marvelous! Home made ravioli was very good. Go there!

Italian restaurants can be quite over-promising, however, this is not the case for Sottovento. The food, service, wine and over-all presentation was outstanding! The portion sizes were very generous, whilst the quality of the food was amazing! I would highly recommended picking something from their home-made pasta menu aswel as the mixed seafood platter.

Everything was first class in this restaurant from the delicious tasting food, presentation, wine, and service. My only gripe is that the portions were too big!!!! We asked if we returned would it be possible to share between two, no problem they said. We will be going back.

We visited this restaurant in February and, having just returned to El Cotillo, it was the place we made a beeline for. The service is courteous and efficient and the portion sizes huge. It is the first time ever my wife could not finish a salad. I had the tagliatelle al a bolognaise (not very adventurous I know,but we had... More
