Don't bother with the Tapas & Wine offer. You get eight dishes of tapas that you do not choose and probably wouldn't choose. It all comes together and the fish and meat dishes are tasteless.
The Sangria is good though. The chocolate torte pudding was good and would have been even better if the base wasn't frozen.

Visited on November 5th and 6th ( we are currently sitting outside about to eat again) and found food and drink fantastic.
The staff are brilliant so very pleasant and great service.
The views are to die for overlooking the old harbour.
Well worth a visit.

By far the worst food we had in all over Fuerteventura and it was by the way the most expensive, too.
Steak was drenched in flavourless and lovelessly poured goat cheese. The prawns and the octopus didn't taste fresh at all.
An awful experience!

Mondays and Tuesdays are the days for restaurant closures in El Cotillo so we ended up here by default (a bit of a panic choice). It looked fairly busy and we had seen the tapas offer on the board outside. We were ushered upstairs and made to sit on the front line to make it look busier. The waiters were preoccupied with a football match on the TV (no customers appeared to be watching this).

We asked about the tapas but decided to go with the fresh fish and grilled prawns, the waiter gave a bit of a strange sigh but said OK. The prawns were the most difficult to peel I have ever come across and the fish did not taste very fresh, it was fried to within an inch of it's life and covered in garlic.

To top it all off just as we were about to ask for the bill a young cockroach ran across our table. This was one of 2 cockroaches we saw in El Cotillo the other was outside this restaurant we should have taken it as a sign!

We took up their offer of tapas and a bottle of wine for 25 Euros, the food was good, the view was good, the staff were attentive but all 8 plates came out within minutes of each other and we felt that it was very rushed and we did not get to sample the various platters at our leisure but had to eat them before they went cold.
Could not fault the value, nor the quality of food but the whole experience was over very quickly.
