Great stop off for bread, croissants and pastries any time of day. Good coffee and choice of filled sandwiches too - great for stocking up for a day out on the beach.

There is another restaurant of the same name in Lajares and while the one in Cotillo is good, the other one is much better with more atmosphere and a better selection.

This cafe/bakery is 5 minutes walk from the other bars and cafes by the sea, but it is certainly worth it. The views aren't great, but the quality of the food and drink is excellent - much better than the more touristy options elsewhere. Coffee is great, and the cakes and pastries they produce there are excellent.

A lovely spot to stop for coffee and cake! The brownies were our favourites but the cream cakes were also delicious! It's unusual to find a decent coffee abroad but this was great and just across the road from the hotel we were staying at! And to top it off the price is great too! We had a coffee, Fanta,... More

We went here almost every day during our week stay. Coffees are wonderful and very reasonably priced and the quiche and filled rolls for lunch were a delight. Lovely atmosphere and very friendly staff, thoroughly recommended.

Café con Leche x 2 to takeaway.Hot Chocolate to takeaway. 2 mini-baguettes. Maybe a frambuesa tart or two for a mid morning snack. Excellent Service. Excellent choice of fresh breads. Excellent choice of cakes & tarts. When we didn't think to make our own sandwiches on the beach, we often picked up a few freshly made crab sandwiches as well.... More

The renovation made the place bigger but not nicer! It is now a typical Spanish Cantina to go. We are extremely happy that there is no TV (like in other typical spanish, Italian and English coffee places). Before the renovation El Goloso had the charm of a sweet and special place. It was a little nice and lovely place. This... More

Recently extended to accommodate all the customers vying for a table. This is a coffee shop rather than a restaurant, but with a fab range of French cakes, fancies, sandwiches, tarts and pies. Great coffee too!

This place never disappoints. Every time we stay in Cotillo we buy pastries for breakfast and fresh bread for lunch. The chocolate pastries are SO good.

Thank Marty53
