Olivo Corso is a new restaurant (2018) in el Cotillo. It is an excellant place to eat real Canarian food of high quality with a little twist.
The owner (formerly the chef of La Vaca Azul) and his wive come from Corsica and are always doing a great job. The view isn’t as good as at La Vaca Azul, but the interior is very pretty. There are also two terraces, one at the front and one at the back side.
They serve great wines from the Canary islands and their octopus is the best you’ll ever taste.
My personal favourite is the tuna tataki, a from origin Japanese dish of nearly raw tuna. You can taste that the tuna is really fresh.
You also really need to try their crema Catalana (a Spanish version of the crème brulee).
Tapas from Olivo Corso
If you want to try something different, instead of ordering a regular three course diner you can also order different tapas to share with your friends or family, that’s the way the locals do it.
It is always busy at Olivo Corso, but unfortunately they do not take reservations. So if you want to be sure of a spot, than its better to go early in the evening.
You can park for free nearby Olivo Corso.
