La Marisma and El Callao are two really nice local restaurants especially if you like fish in El Cotillo.

For villages try Ajuy which has a few nice restaurants a nice black sand beach and lovely caves to discover. Also Los Molinos which is a tiny gushing village which is mainly empty in the winter months but has two very rustic cafes and nice walks.

El Cotillo has a good number of restaurants, my suggestion would be is to look through the reviews on here and save them to your trip, even worth driving into Corralejo to sample boa vida which is an all you can eat meat restaurant Brazilian themed & exceptional value for money €11.90 pp & that includes the side dishes & I do mean all you can eat!

Have a great holiday

Most of the restaurants in El Cotillo are very good. La Marisma is my favourite but haven’t had a bad meal anywhere! Have a great holiday!

Lots of good restaurants but most are tourist type places. Bar central right in the old harbour is fairly rustic. Also known to us a Yolande's. Also Piedra Playa serves mainly locals and has a good atmosphere, good food and incredible value. We will be going to both over the next couple of nights.

I agree about bar central but it depends which way the wind is blowing as to whether we go there!

Just about every village has at least one bar/café/restaurant and they can be fascinating if a little daunting. That's where you'll get more standard Canarian fare for lunch. Puerto - our capital - is a great place for lunch cafés, with weekday workers' set menus of 3-4 courses coming out at less than €10 a head including a drink. Loads of it too! A visit to Gran Tarajal is nice, and head down to Morro Jable too. One nice itinerary for a day on the move is to head south down the inland road through La Oliva, Tindaya, Tefia, and Antigua then back via Puerto to Corralejo along the dunes road for the views, and from there back to El Cotillo via Lajares. That would give you a quick taster of a lot of the island, then you can go back for more.

Rarely have we had a bad meal anywhere in Cotillo or Corralejo. As well as earlier posts can recommend Acorraldo for great value tapas and La Ballena for something a bit different .
