We had a pretty good meal here but I wasn't quite as impressed as many of the reviewers on here. Perhaps because I don't eat fish so probably didn't get the best things available on the menu. Still, it was probably the best restaurant in Puerto de las Nieves I'd say. I had a steak and some very nice wine.... More

My partner and I ordered fresh fish each the waiter advised us the mixed fish platter would be better value. We tried it and it was amazing tasted fresh and full of flavours. I am normally not adventurous with fish but I ate mussels, prawns, red snapper, swordfish and another fish. Absolutely beautiful. Our Waite didn't have the best English... More

What I can't understand is why you would choose to pay more for less? Having tried a couple of other more prominent restaurants on the front we decided to give El Capita a try. As soon as you walk in you know you're in a proper restaurant. The place was lovely and warm and welcoming and the 2 lads who... More

There was quite a mix of people there from families to couples having a romantic night out (Valentine's). The food was plentiful and well prepared. Would definitely recommend a visit if in Agaete.

Visited this restaurant two years ago and rated as excellent then. The sea food is fresh, good value and cooked well. Good choice of wine on the menu and everything is reasonably priced. Located at the port area but not outside which was a plus as the weather, whilst dry, was on the cold side. Shame the area was quiet... More

Excellent food and service. The Seafood Paella for 2 was superb. Best I have tasted. The only down side was the lack of clients. This is one of the best restaurants in the area. I do not understand why, on both occasions we dined there, it was very quiet. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We are here though it is on of the few restaurants without outdoor seating. We were very happy with the pallella. Family friendly and a good price. Would go again.

We had the seafood paella which was good. They recommended a wine and that was also good and reasonably priced. It is not on the see front and the atmosphere was quite.

Not the cheapest restaurant in the village but something for everyone on the menu. For a non English speaking area, this restaurant made us welcome on several occasions and provided us with lovely food. They even tempted us to try things out of our comfort zone , free of charge. Well worth a visit , the Sangria is lovely, perfect... More
