A guide to the best restaurants in Costa Caleta
Food is a big part of all Fuerteventura holidays, and Costa Caleta has a wide variety of restaurants serving Chinese, Italian, Indian and authentic Spanish, as well as British food. Due to the abundant supply of fresh fish on the coast, you will find delicious seafood dishes on Canarian menus, alongside traditional stews and tapas. There are also a few cafes and restaurants by the beach, offering picture postcard views across the bay.
Great British roast at Tommy Nutters Pool Bar
You’ll get good food and plenty of it at this poolside restaurant that serves cuisine for British tastes. From cooked breakfast to fish and chips and their infamous Sunday lunch, it’s all served with a smile. The steak and ale pie gets rave reviews and they’ll even throw in a free bottle of wine with your evening meal. After dinner, you could always stay to enjoy the quiz night.
Carnivore heaven at Fado Rock Steak House
Arrive early or book ahead to avoid the queues at this popular steak house during holidays in Fuerteventura. The delicious smells from the BBQ on the front terrace are enough to tempt anyone in and the soothing sounds of the acoustic guitarist are sure to keep you entertained.Be warned, the meat comes in one size – large, but they’re happy to provide a doggy bag if you want to finish your dinner later.
Relaxed dining at La Taberna del Capitan
A quality Canarian restaurant serving freshly prepared food, El Capitan is the setting for a leisurely meal with plenty of good quality wine. Opt for the inexpensive tapas or the paella – must be pre-ordered – if you want to tuck into a romantic meal together. With buy one get one free for drinks between 1pm and 2pm and 8.30pm to 10.30pm, this place is just made for sharing. Sit back and sip your wine while listening to live Canarian music.
Fresh seafood at La Frasquita
Close to the beach, this is the place for seafood lovers. A charming Spanish restaurant, you know it’s going to be good when the locals are eating there too. With no written menu, the specials are whatever fish has been caught fresh that day and there’s usually calamari or mussels to start.
Incredible Indian at Fusion 22
Watch your food being prepared as you sit on the terrace of this lovely Indian restaurant. The hanging meat and prawn skewers look impressive and taste just as good. There’s good wine to complement your meal and even free Wi-Fi here, so you can share your food snaps with friends back home.
Oriental favourites at Jinxing
The best Chinese in the area is named after the owner and serves all your favourites. The set menu is good value and you can swap dishes if you’d prefer to try a bit of everything. It’s a 20-minute stroll north, in Costa Antigua, but if you don’t fancy the walk they’ll deliver to your apartment or even the pub you’re drinking in.
See the sea at Beach Cafe
A café with a view, the name says it all. Feast on pizza or Spanish grub in this handy cafe then roll straight back to the beach afterward. This little place is also good for a coffee or ice cream pit-stop. If you need a lunch time cool down then try a jug of sangria – for sharing, of course.
Generous portions at Nestor's
Nestor himself will be waiting at the door to greet you at this fusion restaurant, which serves steaks and dishes with a Caribbean flavour. The Jack Daniels ribs are a hit. Just make sure you don’t eat for a while before dinner as the portions are extra-large!
Family friendly dining at Mustang Sally's
For a relaxed family meal, head to Mustang Sally’s. This bar-come-restaurant serves British-style food from breakfast to ribs or lasagne. The children will be kept amused by the small play area and pool table. It’s just outside Costa Caleta in Costa Antigua but well worth a visit.
Succulent steaks at El Patio
This Spanish restaurant is one to try for tender steaks and their delicious leg of lamb. You’ll be left well-oiled with free drinks on entry and a complimentary liqueur after your meal. Live music events are held on some nights, with tuneful Alberto being a favourite.
