Salinas is only 5 minutes by car South of Caleta de Fuste and is well worth the trip. For customers who don't have transport, we saw taxis drop off and collect. We only visited at night - twice - so cannot comment on the setting other than the restaurant is down by the waterfront, where there is some parking. There... More

Assumption: I have been in Spain many times and I love Spanish food in general. Unfortunately this restaurant proved to be really terrible. Me and my wife ordered, as starter, one "pulpo a la gallega" that turned out to be, more or less acceptable. Sadly, we ordered, as main course, one "paella" and that was my worst culinary experience ever.... More

Dined in this restaurant twice in January 2017, once as a threesome & the other occasion as a couple. The first time I had mussels for starters & Hake for main course. My companions had Fish Soup & one had Sole while the other also had fish. The service was very pleasant & food was of the highest order though... More

Enjoyed an excellent lunch at Los Caracolitos. Tasty food served by friendly staff and good service. Walked from Caleta de Fuste and caught the bus back. (No 3, runs every 30 mins.)

Nice local place. We arrived and were greated by the very friendly staff. We both ordered fish, which was okay, but neither of us loved our dinner. It was "fine" but wouldn't go back.

Our fourth visit and it is still charmingly rustic with fresh food served as the islanders eat themselves. The staff were friendly but not intrusive and the atmosphere calm and relaxing. The service was excellent and the meal I had, muffled small squid, simply cooked in a light batter, the texture and flavour were divine. We will return.

We have visited Los Caracolitos twice before and enjoyed a lovely meal, however..... This time expectations were high. We ordered our starters, I had garlic prawns, my wife had tomato and goat cheese salad - both were good. Before I was anywhere near finished my sole had arrived and the waiter whipped my bowl from beneath me. My main was... More
