Reviewed February 2, 2012

The last restaurant on the 'mule' - the old harbour wall - it's position is stunning. Sit outside, look back along the promenade and town beach and see the lights reflected in the sea. People-watch as they pass to and fro and you stop worrying about speed of service - which isn't that bad anyway. Like most restaurants, there's a 'barker' to get trade in but he is jolly and entertaining. The food from two visits was glorious - a vegetable paella made to order and not some cooked veg mixed in with cooked rice, and a pasta made to my order - asparagus, courgette, chilli, garlic and olive oil. The house wine I had was very drinkable plus a good choice of half-bottles of well-know varieties. The people eating fish around me were constantly passing tasters to one another - a very good sign. My friend had bacalao (cod) cooked with onions and went delirious. Even if the food was only mediocre I would still eat here for its position. By the time I've drunk a beautifully served gin and tonic and ordered, I'm at peace with the world.

“Poor value for money”
Reviewed December 28, 2011

This restaurant used to be very good, but sadly standards have gone downhill, despite being run by the same owner for years. We were seated quickly, then ignored, after 2 requests we were served drinks and only after a complaint to the owner did we get our order taken...Wish we hadnt bothered

The food was ok, pricey, but very ordinary and very lacking in any sort of choice of fresh fish on the night we went. We ate, paid and left without any tips. Go round the corner to the Sotovento which is far superior. Will not return

“Not very good”
Reviewed November 26, 2011

Tried the lobster and except from the dead fish in the aquarium it tasted ok, but not what i expected compared to the price. The potatoes, salad and service was not very good.

“The Place for Fish”
Reviewed November 16, 2011

The lobster soup was fantastic as was the prawn and mussell kebabs.

Watched other tables have the fish cooked in salt again the comments heard were very positive.

Choose your night to visit as it can get extremely busy but dont miss the opportunity to try .

“Excellent location, excellent service, excellent food”
Reviewed November 7, 2011

We visited this restaurant three times during our week in Corralejo we chose the paella on two occasions and the salt baked fish on the third. The food was delicious and very well presented although the young lady on the next table had a shock when they flambeed the salt fish before serving. The waiting staff were very attentive and chatty and the location overlooking the sea was wonderful. We reserved a particular tablein a prime position in passing during one afternoon and were given the same table at the time we requested despite the considerable number of people which were waiting to be seated. This was all down to the 'barker' who was very friendly and amusing. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone with a preference for good seafood.
