We will be spending Christmas in Fuerteventura. We're just wondering do the majority of restaurants close or how difficult would it be to eat out for Christmas? (I understand the main Christmas meal in Spain would generally be on the 24th so we'd like to do this while we are there!)

Basically we're asking if anyone could recommend a restaurant/hotel where we could enjoy a Christmas dinner?

(We're staying in Tarajalejo but will have a car so don't mind driving a bit!)

Try Rosie O'Grady's Irish Bar, just make sure to book in advance.

Tarajalejo is a fairly isolated and quiet village resort, so you'll have to travel to some restaurants.

Most will be open over the Christmas period. You will have to travel south to Costa Calma and Jandia. Just north is Gran Tarajal which has some very nice sea front restaurants.

Thanks for the replies.

We wouldn't really like to go to an Irish pub as we were hoping to have something spanish but thanks for the recommendation.

We knew it was a quiet place alright which is why we chose it and will be self catering for most of the time but just thought we'd like to go for a nice meal for Christmas but weren't sure if it would be something we'd have to book.

That's great that most will be open, is there any restaurant or even hotel in particular you would recommend for a traditional spanish style Christmas meal and would there be a need to book in advance?

Thanks again for the quick replies

I can't help with actual restaurant recommendations but I'm absolutely certain you should try to book. Although there will be restaurants open, some will be closed, with their owners away with family etc. The ones that are open will no doubt be booked some time in advance.

Buses and taxis operate on both 24th and 25th December. It's New Year's Day that's totally dead here. There were very few bars and restaurants open last NYD in Corralejo.
