“Avoid for food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2014

We had a range of dishes among our group and all were basic and woeful. It was difficult to make out the chicken in the chicken curry and the sauce was very bland. The Mexican Beef was also poor. The rice and vegetables dish was awful. The vegetables seemed to consist only of tinned sweet corn and frozen peas. The ratatouille was very basic and it must have been the only ratatouille ever served without aubergine. The service was indifferent and the food delivery was slow and erratic - so much for Swiss efficiency. It was not very pricey but it still represented poor value as it would have been so much better and cheaper if we had eaten at home. There are so many better places to eat in El Cotillo

“Whilst in Fuerteventura......go Swiss !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2014

What a great place. The other reviewers echo our sentiments perfectly. There have not been many restaurants/bars that I have visited, where customers play chess after the meal and local street cat wonders around, before deciding which of the clientele' s lap it chooses to sit on. The menu list is surprisingly limited, German sausage with curry sauce, German sausage without curry sauce. Curry chicken with banana,curry chicken without banana. I had the curry with banana and loved it. My 'other half' had the sausage and said it was the best sausage that she had ever had.......and she knows her sausages !!

“great little place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2014

this is a must visit bar.its a swiss run place with a mix of all europeans visiting it.the bar restaurant has a really cool and chilled vibe about it.we were staying about 50ms away and after a day surfing or at the lagoons would chill there with a beer while the small member of our team could play in the swing park which is right outside.the food on our last night was fantastic,a real surprise and the best meal of the holiday.if your a chilled out person who likes to mix with all other people from around the world with great and very welcoming staff,then pay ferrets a visit

“Don't give this Swiss a miss.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2013

This place has a very strange selection of food-----chicken curry and chips anyone? But the bar is great fun----cheap wine, nice eccentric service and you always end up having a party.
