“A unique experience - for seafood lovers only!”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

We'd heard about la Frasquita, and finally got around to trying it recently. We didn't book, not even sure if you can, but dining relatively early we had no problem getting a table. Make no mistake, the decor, tables, chairs are all pretty basic, but clean and presentable with a nice view across the beach to the sea. There is no menu...the owner will simply bring out a large platter of fresh fish, and you choose what you would like. While you enjoy your drinks your selection is cooked, and served with Canarian potatoes and a simple salad. My wife and I shared so large, unknown (to us!) fish, whilst our dining companions had the octopus and tuna. All of it was beautifully cooked, and they were generous portions. By the time we left the place was filing up, and it was perhaps telling that the rest of the diners were all Spanish, it's clearly popular with the locals. So, if you fancy a bit of authentic Spanish cooking and don't mind the slightly basic setting, la Frasquita is certainly worth trying. Not necessarily cheap, but not the most expensive place to eat either. Just don't expect anything other than fish, or ask for the veggie options!

“Great Seafood”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

The menu is a plate of fresh fish that the waiter brings around. You pick you fish.
Great fish at a good price.
Worth noting they only serve seafood.
Good value for money

“A fantastic restaurant”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

If you like fresh fish I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough. There's no reservations to be made, just turn up and sit at a table. There's no menu or wine list, the owner simply comes to your table with a tray of fish and you pick which one you'd like to eat. All cooked very simply - just gently fried or grilled and served with salad and some canarian potatos. The only thing I would say is that the portions are large so go easy on the starters! It should be the number 1 restaurant in Caleta de Fuste.
