The sleepy village of La Salinas is a couple of kilometres outside Fuste but feels a world away. Take the local bus, a short taxi ride of a 25 mins coast walk from the Atlantico Centre and you will feel a world away from commercial Fuste. The village only has this one bar/restaurant but it is fantastic.

Overlooking the quite bay this place is a great fish restaurant with a local feel that serves top quality food which reminds you why Spain was put on the culinary map in the first place - the grilled squid was amazing and the grilled fish of the day was so much better than others we had in Fuste.

Definitely worth a visit - but not on Wednesday when it closes for the day!

We found this lovely restaurant when walking from our villa to Salinas to see the salt mines, what a fab find. We went there 3 times and the friendliness of the staff and food was fantastic. Our kids loved the Tuna which was 3 steaks each. My husband and I had the garlic prawns, local cheese and meat escalope and a steak. Value for money was excellent the wine was inexpensive and delicious would highly recommend at least 1 visit.

This restaurant is just by the beach, in a very quite area of the island. It may be easy to miss the highway entrance. The staff does not speak English but very friendly. The fish is fresh, and coming from the sea, and value for money is amazing. We ate there two consecutive nights, and I certainly recommend this place.

About 3 minutes in a taxi from Caleta De Fuste Altanlico Centre. This fish restaurant will collect you in their minibus from your apartment from September (but not August). 7 of us ate including 5 young people. The fish of the day (Dorada) was superb and came with its head on. The meat was very tender. we sat in the open air overlooking the beach and watched the sun go down. Locals come here and they tuck in and they know their fish. Well worth a visit. 7 main courses, 1 bottle of wine, 2 beers and plenty of soft drinks cost 108 Euros.
I would definitely go back.

Fabulous, out of the way, restaurant near the Salt Museum at Las Salinas (not far from Caleta De Fuste).
The Tapas are outstanding - Garlic Prawns to die for!!
