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.

Conveniant location but not always open?Friendly staff but long wait for mains. Kids omelette and chicken breast good. Tuna steak ok but just too well done (ie dry and chewy!) to be really enjoyable! Outside seating overlooking water available if you can get one of the tables.

We stayed in El Cotillo for 2 weeks and visited this restaurant maybe 8 times. Everywhere else we came, the service, food quality and somewhere even correct bill was comparable to La Capitana. I am saying hello to Ari and the CHEF for great times we had there and for me mostly the unforgetable fish soup! You saved our lives... More

Great view of the harbour of El Cotillo, attentive staff and good seafood. After ordering fresh fish came in and we were offered to change our orders for the fresh fish which was absolutely worth it.

....but failed to deliver I'm afraid. Visited on recommendation. Service was good and friendly but the food was certainly nothing special. Won't visit again.
