No trip for a gourmet to Corralejo is complete without a meal at Dovela. We come on every visit and twice in the past week. Jose the owner is a passionate, lively and entertaining host. He describes the food wonderfully and his only aim is that you have a great experience.
Being from the Basque region influences many of the dishes on the menu of this bespoke restaurant. Rarely with more than six tables occupied, you could wonder why. Probably it is not the cheapest restaurant, but it is the best in town.
One of the best dishes is a signature dish which helped Dovela win a culinary award across all the Canary Islands. An unusual combination it is a mixwhich works. A circle of black pudding, then some scrambled egg, then another circle of black pudding, topped off with a creamy cod sauce.
An eccentric and charming host, Jose speaks good English and presents a menu which changes regularly and frequently includes dishes with his favourite black pudding, popular in the Basque region.
Treat yourselves to a meal at Dovela. The portion sizes will allow you to partake of all three courses. You will not be disappointed.
