We were staying half board but decided to eat out one night. The place was busy and because of other reviews we decided to try here. The staff were very friendly and chatty and there was a nice atmosphere. We chose fried cheese with blueberries to start which was good and mixed paella to share. The paella was a disappointment in that it was a bit short on meat, two prawns, too many orange and lemon slices and too much moisture, it was more like a risotto to me.
Sorry, we enjoyed the atmosphere but disappointed in the paella.

This restaurant has a nice location just back from the seafront which makes it a little quieter. It was busy when we arrived but we managed to get a table outside. The staff were excellent; very friendly, attentive and are a credit to the restaurant.

The menu is extensive but fairly representative of the majority of restaurants down on the front; a lot of fish dishes to choose from, and some meat. We went for some starters first, and a word of warning... the portions are massive so you might want to go for one of the small plates. The main course fish a couple of us had was a bit overcooked in our opinion and looked like it had been hacked open. The sole fillet was good, and the goat was also good. Generally we found the food to be pretty decent.

We had a nice evening and It cost about 120€ for the four of us.

If you fancy having an entire fish to yourself, with chips and a salad, this is for you. Food and service was good all round.

We were fortunate enough to do a little bit of gantry crane install work in Fuerteventura at the end of February 2018.

Once the job was quoted most of the staff were volunteering to attend site, and donning their Bermuda Shorts and flowery shirts!

Once the crane work was finished we were lucky enough to eat at the Puntilla Restaurant in Morrow Del Jable.

The first night the place was full, but we managed to get in on the second night.

Had garlic prawns and fried cheese to start, followed by fresh fish of the day. All were excellent.

The free brandy at the end was massive as well.

Tip: phone and book a table, you won’t regret it.
We need more crane work in the Canary Islands, especially in the winter!

If our boss asks “we were working very hard in the sunshine and not eating out and enjoying ourselves in the Canaries......”

Weather; mixed, mostly sun and bits of cloud. Small amount of rain, mostly at night.

After try different restaurants in the zone “Casa Menso” has been the really the best one. We have ordered “Lenguado relleno” after ask for recommendations to the waitress. With no doubt the best choice we could take! The fish taste was excellent and the presentation absolutely impressive!!! The size of the fish was correct, so with this dish and a mix salad we both were full; but we couldn’t resist the temptation of the desserts so also order a home made cake. Also all the personnel was really kind. This restaurant has not the best views of the beach but I completely recommend it, the quality/price relationship is great. And after the lunch a great walk by the shore enjoying the sun above us and the sand in our feet!
