“This is the place to be....”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

If you are looking for unfriendly hosts, unattentive service, red housewine that is made with seawater, lack of hospitality and tapas a la microwave: This is the place to be. If you want something else than pick any of the other restaurants in town and yo are better off. If you don't like to run a restaurant then start doing something else.

“MISERABLE UNFRIENDLY WORST IN SUCH A LOVELY PLACE WITH SO MUCH CHOICE, DONT GO THERE!”
Reviewed 9 November 2011

I was obviously an irritation to the staff here who were not welcoming in any way. There are enough bars in El Cotillo to warrant going to a different one every night and possibly return to favourites, however, I will NEVER return here! Staff are unfriendly, unattentive and verging on rude. Having visited many of the establishments here where people were extremely friendly and welcoming, this place was like a morgue! We should have realised as they had no customers, but thought we would try it as it was recommended by the owners of our apartment. We met a very friendly customer outside who told us that they also rented apartments and we should speak to them if we were interested in visiting El Cotillo again as they may have something of interest, however, as no conversation was made and no information offered regarding this they are obviously not interested in promoting this side of the business or the bar/restuaurant side. these people should have a sign outside 'DO NOT COME HERE! WE CANT BE BOTHERED! They don't even talk amongst themselves never mind to the customers. We thought maybe it was just us, but having talked to several other holiday makers and locals, it is obvious they are like this with everyone. Perhaps these people should consider a career change, hospitalitiy is clearly not their vocation!!

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed 1 November 2011

We found this gem on our first visit to Fuerteventura 6 years ago. We havee been back to the island every year since - sometimes twice. On every visit we make a trip to Puerto Nuevo no matter where we stay on the island. This year we travelled from Morro del Jable in the very south of the island. We were not disappointed. As well as the usual selection of food which is described as "English" they had added Tapas. We travel quite a bit in Spain and the islands and have not experienced Tapas as delicious or as cheap. Usually my other half opts for liver and onions (not everyones choice) which he claims is just like I make at home ! However he wiped his plates clean after the tapas and swore he would move to El Cotillo for the food in Puerto Nuevo alone ! For delicious fish, meat that tastes like meat, and delicious home-made desserts, you will not find anywhere on the island to compare. To those moaners who moan about the decor ! Its a traditional Spanish pub/restaurant ! Its not meant to look like McDonalds !

“Excellen tapas, and surprisingly cheap.”
Reviewed 29 October 2011

We ate here twice after finding it a little late in our stay, beautiful tapas made by a very friendly Irish lady. She made us feel realy welcome, the food was better than any other tapas we had during our stay, and at 2Euros per dish, cheaper than anywhere else.

Highly recommended, the only disappointment is that we didn't find it earlier (and maybe a few more smiles from the barman may improve the ambience)
