A guide to food and drink in Fuerteventura
In the busy town of Corralejo many of the restaurants are situated around the harbour. While Jandia has plenty of tourist restaurants along the seafront, more traditional eateries can be found set back in its cobbled streets. Here is a selection of some of the best places to eat during holidays in Fuerteventura.
Food with a view at Los Caracolitos, Salinas del Carmen
Locals travel miles to Los Caracolitos, one of the island’s best fish restaurants, which has a very popular shellfish soup. Just 10 minutes south of Caleta de Fuste it looks out across the pretty cove and salt pans of Salinas del Carmen. Either take the scenic coastal walk or make use of the restaurant’s free shuttle service.
Five star fish at Yamatori, Corralejo
For fans of Japanese food, this stylish, five-star restaurant at the Atlantis Bahia Real Grand serves excellent Teppanyaki and sushi. If the set menu is a little pricey for you then there are individual dishes to suit your budget and tastes. It can get busy during the high season and is a particular favourite among tourists taking Fuerteventura holidays – so best to book ahead if you can.
Generous helpings at Piccola Italia, Morro Jable
This rustic Italian restaurant serves brilliant pasta and pizza cooked in a wood-burning pizza oven. With a big selection, big portions and reasonable price, its no wonder customers come back time and time again. If you fancy a night in, then delivery can be arranged, or take away and eat your pizza under the stars.
Surf's up at Citrus Surf Cafe, Corralejo
This surf-bar-come-bistro serves something a little different from the usual tapas. Its fresh fusion menu includes dishes from around the world such as Thai curry, Tex-Mex, gourmet baguettes and inventive salads. The covered terrace offers a place to chill out during the day and has live music some evenings. Friday night is BBQ night and is ideal for those taking cheap holidays to Fuerteventura – fill yourself from the grill and enjoy a drink all for €10.
Keep it casual at El Mentidero Café, El Cotillo
This is a great little place for a tasty breakfast, lunch or fresh coffee and home-made cakes. It has bright and airy white decor inside, or you can outside and admire the sea views.
