great Location overlooking the harbour and the beach. Staff are friendly and welcoming. We ordered a seafood platter for 2, spaghetti bolognese and a goats cheese salad. The spaghetti and the salad were great but all of the fish on the seafood platter was reheated...(possibly from the day before I suspect) and very dry. The platter was disappointing - there wasn't much apart from the dry fish - a couple of prawns and musselsMore

Beautiful location with nice views to the sea, friendly staff and fresh fish which vary on a daily basis depending on what the fishermen bring every day. It's worth it.

We had a wonderful lunch here on the shady terrace. We had grilled calamar and fresh fish of the day and it was delicious! We enjoyed the view of the ocean and the great vibe of Cotillo and would always come back to this place.

Sat waiting for 20 minutes in half empty restaurant to then have menus thrown at us. Went to order 2 beers and was then told no, only with food as he is too busy. The restaurant was not even half full. What a way to...run a business. Bring back El Cotillo 1993 when waiters had manners. Que Mal.More

Beautifully cooked butterflied fish of the day with canary potatoes and roasted garlic. Lovely, flakey and moist. Washed down with very aromatic Volcano Di Lanzarote.

Very nice staff, special the Portuguese waiter/man. The meal was good, we had Cod/Babalaô and for us as Brazilian the bacalhau was good. The food and drinks were a little bit over price, but the location was amazing for the sunset.

Hey fellow diner, do you like SALT?! Well have I got the restaurant for you! After a long stay in el Cotillo we chose this restaurant for our last meal… and boy were we disappointed. Everything over-cooked and over salted. We left most of it,...then had the largest bill all holiday. Awful!! Do not go here! With so many great places in town, they need to up their game.More

Had dinner here during our visit to El Cotillo. It is well situated with a good view over the harbour and for the sunset. Food was fairly good although not everything on the menu was available. Service was good but the meal was more expensive...than elsewhere. Overall there are better restaurants in El Cotillo.More

We Had to return to this restaurant for a second go despite being a 20-30 minute drive from our base in Corralejo . The standard of food and service was outstanding and as I said the view from the tables was breathtaking!!! A Must Visit...if you're driving and not based locally but possible to get there by bus too if not.More

Same table as last time! Same great food and service! We’ve been three times now, on our last three holidays to Fuerteventura. The aubergine with honey and goats cheese is divine as were the garlic prawns and grilled king prawns. Very good service and a...nice relaxing atmosphere.More

The staff here are lovely and so helpful but the food really let it down. The fish was not very fresh and the seafood was frozen. There are better rest to eat in locally. The price is quite high and the food just doesn’t match...unfortunately. If the food could match the kindness of the staff it would be amazing.More

Had dinner here with four people. For starters we ordered squid and fish croquettes for the table. We asked specifically whether the squid was fresh and this was confirmed with some doubt by the waiter. A bell should have ringed by then. This squid came...straight out of the freezer. As main course we took the paella with fish. Not a single fresh piece of fish to be found here either. The ingredients came straight out of the freezer. Scallops straight from the freezer, shrimps cooked to soup. Rice not cooked properly and not done. The paella we ordered was for 3 people, but when served the waiter confirmed it was a 2-person portion. They charged it for 3 persons, but after we pointed this out they did correct this to a 2 person dish. Nice view over the ocean, staff is friendly, but there are far more better restaurants in El Cotillo, especially for what we have paid in the end.More

I'm afraid I don't know. I've not been on the island at Christmas. You would be better asking the restaurant
