A Spanish friend of mine recommended this restaurant to us and although we were staying on the other side of Fuerteventura we planned in a visit whilst touring the island. We are really glad we did. The setting is stunning. There was a busker (if that is the correct description) playing some nice chilled out tunes on the beach near... More

Have visited several restaurants during our stay but this proved the highlight. Booked for the terrace aiming to see sunset and were given excellent table. Very friendly greeting with excellent and informative service throughout. The meal was perfect. We took advice and shared several starters - all very good but fried cheese was the star. Then had fish of the... More

We had lots of dishes which were all fresh and well presented. We sat outside in the small terrace and enjoyed the sea view. The salads were crisp and full of tasty olives. We had the fried sea food which was fresh and so tasty! It is worth a bus ride to El Cotillo just for lunch here!

Boy, was this a lucky find! Came across La Vaca Azul on a day trip to Cotillo. Excellent menu choices, great service, wonderful food (try the local goat stew) and a superb view of the bay and out to sea.

We went twice to this restaurant and ordered both times the " fideuá" which they make very well for 28€ (for 2 people).

Went here for lunch. 20 minutes drive from Corralejo. Or if you have time take the coastal route in the morning. Amazing drive. Anyway, just get there. And pick a fish from the counter and order some white. Amazingly perfect cooked. Both fish and vegetables were to die for. And service is great and relaxed as you want it when... More

This fish restaurant is a must if you are in El Cotillo. Good selection of fish dishes, all cooked from freshly caught that day. Friendly and attentive staff. Well priced and they don't overcharge on the wines.

The food is fantastic! Much choice of fresh fish. You should try the sweet potatoes!!! You better go for lunch instead of dinner: it is less busy and you can enjoy a great view. Ask for a place on the roof.
