El Cotillo restaurants and cafes offer a wide variety of different types of food – including traditional Spanish, Italian, Chinese, Tapas and Pizza.
They are located all over the village, not in one long “strip” as they tend to be in some other places. It is nice to stroll around the village and come across another restaurant to try.
As far as the restaurants in El Cotillo go, there is a wide variety – including traditional Spanish, Italian, Chinese, Tapas and Pizza. There are also a selection of cafés around the village selling coffee, tea, cakes, snacks, sandwiches etc. Obviously prices vary from place to place. If you want a nice meal with a great view of the sea you are likely to may more than in a restaurant tucked away in the village.
If you really need one you can get an “English Breakfast” at a few of the bars, such as the Seahorse or El Toston.
Most El Cotillo restaurants tend to close one day a week, but this varies, so there will always be plenty open on any given day.
The only beach bar is Torino’s on Playa de la Concha. See the beaches page.
