On a quiet January night out, our two first choices of places to eat were closed and we decided to try La Marisma where we had eaten on our first trip to El Cotillo, 8 years earlier.

I only wish we had returned sooner, the best food of the holiday, great service from friendly staff, we will return next year

We recently ate twice at Marisma with friends who live in El Cotillo. They think that Marisma is the best restaurant in El Cotillo and the best value. After eating in most restaurants in the village, we agree. So do local Majoreros (people from Fuerteventura), who come from Corralejo and Puerto Rosario to eat there.
Other posters are correct that the fish is fantastic and very fresh. The staff are extremely knowledgeable about them and offer very good advice. They have a good selection of very good wines at reasonable prices. It is a shame that they have no view, but that does not matter at night.

We arrived in El Cotillo before mid-day and happened upon this fantastic restaurant. The staff were very accommodating and from the open plan dining area with fresh fish on display to the extraordinary food served, the island is worth a return visit simply for this restaurant's flavoursome paella and battered parrot fish fillets!

We were advised to come by a relative, who every year comes to El Cotillo for holidays and reports the place as "the only really FRESH restaurant in town". We had 4 meals in this restaurant. We also noticed other places with perhaps a better location had not actually fresh fish in the fridges outside, and once we sat in another restaurant and the service was so awful that we decided to drink a glass of wine and move to La Marisma for dinner... I can't say La Marisma is the only fresh fish in town because we didn't try all places in El Cotillo, but I can assure the fish was absolutely fresh, very well cooked and surprisingly cheap. Tuna with onion was amazing. Bocinegro a la espalda simply excellent. The size was always very generous and the service excellent. The best white wine of the area is called "Bermejo". Yaiza is also a good choice. This restaurant is a to-do place for sure.
