We loved it here. My husband said it was the best fillet steak he'd ever had. I had garlic prawns with Canarian potatoes and they were delicious. Sadly it was too windy to sit outside while we were there, but if you can on an evening, I would highly recommend it.

Had a meal here was okay nothing to get excited about. I think it's more about the trendy cook your own at the table thing which is fine if you like that sort of thing

This restaurant was absolutely packed when we arrived, and rightly so. Lovely, friendly welcome, and excellent food. We had fillet steak cubes, spiked on a wrought iron frame (very Spanish Inquisition) flambeed in front of us. Such fun and really delicious! Good wine and a great atmosphere. Must be wonderful in summer when you can sit overlooking the ocean.

We managed to get a table on a very busy evening, and although the staff were incredibly busy we were able to chat about dishes and share a joke with the owners. We decided to try the Pirates Gallows with staff and pork. Flambe in vodka and schnapps it adds a bit of theatre to the meal. The meat was... More

this restaurant is on the sea front, and the staff were all friendly. We had tomato soup and prawn cocktail to start which was nice. Followed by grilled sea bass, which was okay, just not great, and spaghetti with pesto. The spaghetti wasn't nice at all, and I couldn't even eat it to be polite. I think there was just... More

My husband and I ate here several times for our evening meals during our 2 week holiday in September. The food was really good. Perfectly cooked steaks, good portions and very reasonably priced. The service was good and the restaurant offers indoor or outdoor seating.

As for as we are concerned this is the best steak in Corralejo. Boxing day meal was just superb. So many other things to try but rarely get past the peppered fillet. Did have an excellent place of lamb chops while the family shared a Sombrero. Excellent.

Warm, welcoming and wonderful. The couple who run this wee gem of a restaurant could not have been better the night our group of 5 turned up without a reservation. Nothing was too much of a problem. The food did not disappoint either. Wholesome, homemade and delicious platefuls were served to everyone. The mixed grill is enormous! Next time we're... More

We selected the El Sombrero Restaurant in Corralejo, before we even left Scotland: What a mixture of Spanish food selections, they offered us: They also had a great knowledge of their local suitable wines, to accompany our meal: However' this restaurant's "signature-dish" is to simply to 'die-for" ? Firstly, forget about a starter dish: Your 'main-course' will satisfy the biggest... More
