The meal was not good. I went to pay a bill of 48 euros. I gave a 50 euro note and took my change. The waiter suddenly went mad and said he had given me too much and I owed him 5 euros. I declined to give it to him. He physically grabbed me and threatened to call the police.... More

Highly recommended for the location in the harbour, the reception and serving which is friendly and relaxed (the Chef coming over to table to great and to make people feel welcome), and the high quality of the dishes and quantity. The fish is brought to the table to allow guests to check it's freshness. Good wine list (we particularly liked... More

This restaurant was AMAZING. Food was great, staff were lovely. Me and my boyfriend went here on our 1 year anniversary and they congratulated us with free fruit cocktails! We kept going back for the huge portion sizes and fresh ingredients. Definitely recommend if you travel to el cotillo in the future. 10/10

The food was good, maybe not the best in town, but well cooked, nicely presented and reasonably priced. The restaurant has terrace with a beautiful view on the seafront, somewhat more sheltered from the wind than the places nearby. The staff was friendly and efficient.
