El Sombrero Corralejo – Restaurant Review

A Global holidays staff member is just back from a holiday to Fuerteventura and here he tells our Travel Blog about his opinion on the best restaurant in Corralejo.

If you are planning a holiday to Corralejo on the island of Fuerteventura then I have to tell you about my favourite restaurant in Corralejo. It might not be the best because I haven’t tried them all but it is my favourite restaurant. I have been on holiday to Fuerteventura many times and I have visited the El Sombrero restaurant on the harbour front in Corralejo old town so many times that I have forgotten how many times I have been. In fact I have just returned home after 2 weeks on Fuerteventura and I visited El Sombrero 4 times in 2 weeks.

It’s because I love the location right on the harbour side that I really like this place, but also it sells my favourite meal! It’s called the Pirate Borneo and basically it is chunks of fillet steak on a rack which is then set alight with burning brandy. It’s fairly basic stuff. It’s not gourmet cooking at its best. It’s not Michelin star but I love it!

The El Sombrero is a nice looking restaurant too. You can sit inside or outside on the wooden terrace but if you want the Pirate dish you have to sit inside. The cost of the Pirate Borneo was 15 Euro per person which I think is good value for money. You can sit and enjoy the view as you eat and drink on a typical warm evening in Fuerteventura.

Here are some photos I took of the El Sombrero in Corralejo. Make a comment if you have been to this restaurant. I would love to hear what your opinions are.
