You're in one of the best places then! Walk down (or up?) to Casa Marcos for some really good quality tapas - not like the touristy stuff; or El Horno for some first-rate Argentinian beef and other meats cooked over an enormous roaring fire (may be a bit hot for the poor chef during the summer!).

Then there's the Vaca Azul in El Cotillo, down by the old harbour, with food prepared by a French chef, and it shows. There's at least one other good restaurant very close by, which also serves the local goat, but I can't remember the name. Then there's Infusion in Corralejo, just off the main strip/drag or whatever you care to call it. The chef may be English, but you'd never taste it! Really quality food for very reasonable prices.

I have to say that Fuerteventura is not the best place in the world for a really special meal. It's great for good value, but it isn't best for really top, die-for quality. But maybe I'm a bit biased after having spent the last 15 years in France! :)

But the atmosphere more or less everywhere here is so great that you're sure to have a memorable meal and a fantastic holiday. Most of the Trip Advisor reviews are spot on, so take note of the majority views. Maybe steer clear of some of the "enormous steak" places for a special event - that's what we do, anyway. Quality over quantity any time when it really counts, I say.

Head down to the Harbour and go down the street behind Music Square. At the bottom of the street is Dovela - a specialist in Basque food. The staff there are very good, and you can sit inside or outside. Another one just around the corner from Dovela (and one of the best in Corralejo) is El Andaluz, small, but perfectly formed, although you will need to book to make sure you get in, and the food has a slight "german" feel (i.e. lots of meat!).

Lastly, for more fun, El Sombrero on the seafront by the harbour is a "theme" place, where they serve food on heated "sombreros" so you cook the meat at your table, or your eat from a hanging hook ( a bit like a kebab). Again, book to make sure you get a table that will allow you to have the Sombrero and note there are minimum 2 persons.

I would definately say you are in the right place right in Villaverde !!! Casa Marcos is one of the best restaurants I have ever been too and if you tell them that it is a special occasion I am sure they will do something special for your family. I would advise to book in advance as they tend to get booked up and remember they are closed on Tuesdays...

There are loads of other really nice restaurants in all the little villages but if I had the choice for a 40th I would definately pick Casa Marcos :-) Enjoy...

All the recommendations above are excellent. I would like to include Restaurante Gregorio on Calle la Inglese. Dovela on the same street is now closed with a new French restaurant opening in its place soon.

Without doubt the Beleton is consistently the best restaurant in Corralejo On Galera beach it also serves snacks during the day

A new restaurant opened in Corralejo just last week. I can't remember its name (which is why I haven't yet rated it on here). Something about Provence. It's along the pedestrianised row of restaurants, beyond the glass paved area. It's mighty expensive for Corralejo, but perfect for a special meal when the food and the quiet ambiance are the most important things. That "French touch" is unmistakable: 100% classy, without any snob about it. Décor, music, food, drinks... all have that special touch.

Is this Dovela reopened ? Sounds like the location where the owner Jose said he was moving to. In which case it is Basque orientated as opposed to French. If that's the case, hope he does well there and maintains his previous excellent standards.

The new French restaurant is located at Dovelas old location. Dovela has re opened in the Reef Club location on the seafront.
