I would highly recommend a visit to this restaurant. The food was exceptional and good value. Ask to sit on the terrace where you can enjoy spectacular views of the bay.

We have being trying to get a meal at this restaurant for a couple of years and this year we managed it. The staff were very attentive and helpful with the menu. The wine menu was presented on an iPad with fantastic tasting notes which really helped with some of the more unfamiliar local wines.
The Sea Bass baked in salt was superb with a flourish of it being flambé’d during its serving.
The picture of the empty plate tells all

Getting the "best" table on the roof terrace is always a good start.

For starters we enjoyed Canarian potatoes and other tapas-style dishes with generous helpings.

My main course, a Ceviche, was perfectly balanced. Wife & son were very happy with their fish backed in salt, too.

The wine (Malvasia 2017 seco from Bermejo in Lanzarote) went well with our seafood and was priced very modestly.

We came here from an on-line recommendation and we were not disappointed!! The service was warm & friendly from the off - the location is stunning and the fish of the day was superb!!
If you come anywhere near El Cotillo you MUST eat here!

This was the fourth year in a row we had visited for my birthday. The food, service, location and atmosphere were excellent. You can watch the chefs gutting and descaling the fish on the end of rocks. The fish is very fresh and beautifully cooked. El Cortillo is a pretty little fishing village and the village and restaurant are worth a visit.
