“Harbour view”
Reviewed 8 December 2012

Above the old harbour the terrace here gives lovely views and sounds to accompany good food. Staff here have changed since our last visit and have raised the standards, though the menu is similar. It is traditional in style and presentation with an emphasis on local fish and meats. This does mean that the fish is cooked a bit more than we do it home, but it was not enough to be a problem. This chef is good; eat there before he retires in 3 years time! Do not over-order as portions are large. Downsides? A bit soulless inside on chilly evenings, wine stocks may differ from the menu.

“Stunning sea views family friendly”
Reviewed 30 October 2012 via mobile

A favourite lunch venue for all members of our family. It does boast the most stunning views of the harbour while still providing shade from the hot sun. Staff made our kids feel welcome and provided a kids menu. The starters are simple and unique combinations. Fish platters are an obvious choice. Do recommend the kid meat stew. But is the iced glass beers that have won this venue my heart and holiday memories

“A great surprise”
Reviewed 14 October 2012 via mobile

We have spent two weeks in El Cotillo for the past three Octobers and eat out almost every night. On our first visit we asked about good restaurants and were told that La Capitana was one to avoid. This year we had been to every other restaurant and there are some excellent ones, especially Azzuro, Pescadore, Casa Rustica and the pizza restaurant in Lajares so it was time to complete the set and went to La Capitana. The staff were very friendly and the service was good. The steak is listed as sirloin and I ordered the one with rochfort. This turned out to be fillet steak which was large, perfectly cooked and the most tender I have had on the island. My wife had fish which she couldn't fault. We were so sorry that we hadn't been before that we decided to go again on our las night. On that occasion we both had steaks. I had the one with calvados and although it was not quite as good as the previous one it was still excellent and my wife was well pleased with her rochfort steak.
A nice touch was the full choice of complimentary liqueur with the bill which was reasonable.
We will definitely be returning a couple of time next year.

“Best on the island. Setiously!”
Reviewed 13 October 2012

Stunning setting. Best paella on the island so far. And I love paella! Aubergine and jam starter was insane. Very competative prices. Great setting - can hear the sea lapping away. Happy bunnies :-)
