“Disappointing ingredients and cooking despite the great view...”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

"El Mirador" was recommended on Trip Advisor as one of the best in El Cotillo. Since we'd already been in the excellent "Vaca Azul" across the street we wanted to try El Mirador.
We were very disappointed: the ingredients used were clearly not the most fresh ones, the cooking was greasy and heavy, no attention given to arrangement whatsoever.

The positive thing was the view.. but it's even better from the Vaca Azul so that's were we returned in the evening.

“The best food on the island!”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

We drove across the dirt track from the Port in Corraejo to El Cotillo and came across this amazing restaurant that is opposite a bostrious stretch of coast line. You are able to eat fine food whislt watch the waves crash against the cliffs and breath in the fresh sea air.

Amazing location and fantistic food!

“Tapas & Wine Offer”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

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.

“Perfect hosts”
Reviewed 6 November 2013 via mobile

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.

“Awful!”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

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!
