Restaurant Reviews in Corralejo, Fuerteventura

The Restaurant ratings seem to not be at all reflective of which are the best and worst restaurants in this place - there seems to be some 'rigging' going on !!

I have been going to Corralejo for 20+ years and going out every other night or more, I have a pretty good feel for which are good or not good restraurants and i have to say that virtually all the ones in your top 10, I wouldn't go near with a barge pole !! and it seems when you go to them everyone else thinks so also as they are generally empty and have English owners trying desperately to get people to come in and eat!

The top restaurants in your list are very british focused (#1 is a scottish/english restaurant, others classed as 'international are basically english food also and there are hardly any restaurants providing 'local' (i.e. fish / canarian) food!!

Having travelled continuously and used Tripadvisor very successfully in other places / countries (e.g. Portugal and South Africa), this seems very unusual and indicates something is going wrong (false voting etc.)

I really suggest something is done about it, otherwise it undermines the purpose of the site.

Mark, the TripAdvisor ranking is a popularity index rather than a quality index of the "best" and "worst". For example if a cheap cafe-style eatery is popular with reviewers then it may well end up ranked higher than a fine-dining restaurant that doesn't meet reviewers' expectations.

I see you haven't yet reviewed any restaurants in Correlejo. The best way to "do something about it" is to review some of these! If you leave positive reviews for restaurants you've enjoyed then this will help then climb the rankings. If some of the restaurants you enjoy aren't yet on TripAdvisor, get them listed so people can leave reviews. Simply click the green Write a Review box in the top-right hand corner to get started.

You can also report specific reviews if you believe any are suspicious by clicking "Problem with this review" underneath them.

I travelled to both Tenerife and Lanzarote last year and I have to say, the tourists in the Canary Islands are overwhelmingly British and of the type who only want to eat what they know - they are travelling for the sun and warmth and not to have a cultural experience. I was not surprised that the best restaurants were of the fish and chips variety. On the other hand, I did go to a handful of restaurants which were not frequently reviewed but better quality and the TA reviews reflected the quality.

In summary, I don't think that reviews are being rigged - the TA reviews are just a reflection of the main group of tourists in the area.
