Have visited here for last 2 years and never disappoints. Nice staff and good food. Lovely position looking over sea and harbour. If you want to be at peace with the world then this is a must for relaxation and total enjoyment both food, drink and the pace of life.

Started off well, we landed in good time for Sunday lunch, staff were warm and friendly; our order was taken just before a table of 12 appeared and sadly things went a tad downhill from there... had to chase our order... it was obvious from the waiter's expression we had been overlooked and our salad lunch was quickly delivered... sadly...

Promised a lot but failed to deliver I'm afraid to say. Great location in the old harbour with a great view out to sea. But the food was poor as was the service even though there were only a handful of other diners present. Will not return.

Ordered seafood paella as we don't eat meat and found it had chicken in, they took it away but brought it back saying all chicken was removed! We didn't want to make a scene but I feel very angry over how they dealt with it. Would never go back or recommend it to anyone😐

The food was just ok, for me nothing special really. The place has a nice view on a little beach and bay.

Our first night in El Cotillo so unsure of where to eat. This place was busy so thought we'd give it a try. My garlic prawn starter was very nice, we both had steaks with were both good although my partner's peppercorn sauce was very salty. Nice sangria to accompany the meal. Waiting staff were pleasant and the bill at... More
