Excellent meal tonight and well worth a visit for foodies! It's a taxi ride out, don't be fooled into walking - only 5 euros each way out of town. Very much appreciated the attention to detail and high standard of cooking. We had foie gras terrine and asparagus king prawn starter - both perfect. Slow cooked lamb for mains and... More

We went to this fabulous restaurant after reading good reviews on trip advisor and are so pleased we did. We were warmly greeted at the door by the lovely owner Annabel and had the best meal we have ever had on holiday cooked by her genius husband Colacho. The food was amazing. So good we returned again before we went... More

Fabulous welcome and service throughout - you really do feel that owners just want you to have a great experience. Food is several cuts above other eateries in Playa Blanca, quality ingredients inventively combined and immaculately presented. Only downsides are a rather remote location, so difficult to go for a pre or post dinner drink, and decor could be a... More

Colacho and wife (Anabel) used to run La Bocaina in Playa Blanca which we used to visit very regularly. Ten years ago wishing to own their own restaurant, they had La Cochina de Colacho built on a rather remote site outwith walking distance of Playa Blanca centre. They had considerable problems with construction overrunning, and we feared ffor their welfare.... More

There are plenty of good places to find a reasonable quality meal at a reasonable price in Playa Blanca. What it has lacked, to my knowledge, is a fine dining sector. La Cocina de Cochina starts to change all that. The restaurant is only open Monday to Thursday, only has thirty covers and reservation is definitely required. The welcome, service... More

Good food and wine accompanied by attentive service in quaint surroundings. A little expensive but worth it, we thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at this restaurant. Probably best to book to avoid disappointment!

We've been coming to this beautiful restaurant for years. I can only say the standard has never changed Colacho and Annabel are still as committed as ever they were. The food choices, quality and presentation are second to none. Annabel is not the only artist in that restaurant. Colacho is a master in his art. This is not a cheap... More

We have been holidaying in Plya Blanca for many years and therefore have our favourite restaurants which we return to time and again. However, we just fancied a change one night and made a reservation here. We were greeted as old friends on arrival and shown to our table. The decor is quirky with a designer feel. Food was beautifully... More

We have visited several restaurants in Playa Blanca since 2010. La Cocina de Colacho is by far the best, and if any restaurant the area ever deserved a Michelin star, this would be it! The food was absolutely fabulous. We had pumpkin soup and the salad with Canarian cheese for starters. So delicious and light. We both opted for the... More
