This is probably the only restaurant in El Cotillo that we visit every trip and this must be no. 15

Constantly good food, we will return

More than any other restaurant this had a real local and genuine feel. Almost all tables inside.Every meal we had was excellent or very good. Well worth a visit.

We had heard mixed reports of this restaurant, with some saying it had gone downhill a bit, but we decided to give it a try.

The decor is dated. Our order was taken relatively quickly and the bottle of house red wine was served promptly - it was OK. We shared a plate of mixed tapas, which was OK, but we had better during the holiday and at 10 euros, it wasn't that cheap.

The kitchen is open to the restaurant and a bell from there rang when 2 plates of food were placed on the top for service. Three or four minutes later and the two plates were still sat there - these transpired to be our main courses, so not a great start. The steak was not bad, but my main course of fried squid and fries was the worst, driest meal I have had in a long time - I had to ask for mayonnaise to make it edible. There was no wedge of lemon or any garnish with the meal, just squid and fries.

Service was lacking, but they seemed to welcome regulars warmly.

The bill total was over 44 euros. We won't be returning, unfortunately.

Set in the back streets of the Old Town, Casa Rustica is away from the more expensive restaurants in and around the old harbour, but well worth a visit. It does have a ‘rustic’ feel, and is unpretentious. We both ordered rump steaks which were excellent, good house wine too. Happy to recommend.
