One of El Cotillo's best restaurants. The owner is fantastic at remembering people, but the food and service is consistently great - we have been visiting on and off for over 8 years and it is always a fabulous meal out!

Located on the roof top of a house over the port of El Cotillo, the restaurant invite you, to go in a tradicional/local anbiance away from the tourist "all the same" in the upper streets of the vilage, without forgeting the good service and simpaty that you wish and expect. The food was well cooked and very well advised, if... More

We visited on 24th and booked an outside table so we could watch the setting sun over the surf! We experienced friendly and attentive service, always really appreciated when visiting a tourist restaurant. From the menu, we chose their two fish soups, both full of flavour and interestingly different, then took their advice and had fresh fish of the day,... More

Just go there and ask for the octopus. Even so state it is huge and delicious. The beef is wonderful too, but the fish... Wow.

The food here was so well put together, it was artistic and the flavours were great. The service was spot on, and the ambiance was a nice mix of couples, families and friends all overlooking the old harbour.

We had a lovely meal which included the freshest of fish, boned skilfully by the waitress in front of us. You can eat upstairs in the balcony or downstairs inside the restaurant. It was too windy and chilly for us to be in the balcony so we can only imagine how wonderful it must be having a meal upstairs on... More

We enjoyed 2 meals here. Had tasty black limpets and delicious octopus. Also a nice mixed salad with prawns and avocado. Yum! Great views too. Street parking easy, and only a short walk to seafront.

The perfect spot! Superb setting ( El Cotillo itself is worth the trip),enthusiastically served range of local dishes and fresh fish with a nice Alabarino to wash it down. All done with a style and a relish not often found on the island. In my experience restaurants in the best locations don't always deliver the best experience the Blue Cow... More

We found this little village whilst driving around. Beautiful little bay with the sea crashing over the rocks. We found this restaurant and picked the best spot on the terrace. I can honestly say that I have not enjoyed a better Paella that the one that we ate here. It was fantastic - their menu was excellent - so spoilt... More
