I’ve come across many wonderful restaurants in Corralejo, but none have impressed me more than La Casita. Situated on the south side of the main strip, they offer a range of well-priced beautiful dishes to savour whilst on holiday in Fuerteventura.
Most, if not all, restaurants in Fuerteventura offer super friendly customer service but I’ve always found it the most noticeable in La Casita. The staff are excellent – highly welcoming, chatty, and able to speak a variety of different languages. They always have such a great sense of humour and it’s hard not to enjoy yourself there.
The ambience of the restaurant is really nice as well, with three separate seating areas -indoors, outdoors, and in an open marquee. We always sit outdoors in the patio area, where warm and glowing space heaters are positioned throughout the tables so you’ll be warm even when the Canarian winds are high. If you go late enough you can dine al fresco under the stars which is always a lovely experience.
We’ve visited La Casita more times than I can count now, so rather than describe one particular outing I’m going to focus on the highlights of our trips out there. The restaurant offers a variety of drinks (with the obligatory honey rum at the end, of course) and a lovely range of starters – we always go for bread between two and a plate of Canarian potatoes served with mojo sauce. The quality of these dishes is good wherever you go but there’s something just that little bit better about La Casita’s Canarian potatoes, which are of a more reddish hue than usual and have the perfect texture both inside and out.
When I’m being more adventurous then my absolutely favourite start to go for is the langostinos – langoustines served on a bed of salad topped with gorgeously crispy shredded potato. I’d go as far as saying that this has been my favourite starter on the whole island!
Paul always goes for steak when we dine there – their steak portions are small but don’t think you’ll go hungry as they’re just as filling as the bigger portions you’ll find in the local steakhouses! They come served with a variety of different sauces, plus steak-cut chips and a beautiful herby vegetable mix.
Although I love the steak I tend to go for fish when I’m there – two of my favourite meals I’ve had so far include the Saharan squid, served with Canarian potatoes (yep, I’m obsessed) and a side salad, and the seafood pasta. The pasta combines various seafood with spaghetti and a gorgeous pasta sauce, and and the Saharan squid is grilled in garlic and a different way to eat it besides your typical calamari dishes.
La Casita cater for children as well as vegetarians, vegans, and other dietary requirements, making it a great choice for those who need lots of options within their diet.
As far as I am aware La Casita doesn’t offer any extra services such as live music or takeaway, however their positioning on the high street gives them a distinct advantage for those staying in the southern area of Corralejo that don’t want to go all the way to the music square or the harbour for food. The restaurant is situated not too far from a shopping centre plus loads of great high street brands such as Bershka and Fund Grube, making it the perfect location to stop for dinner after a holiday shopping spree.
I can’t see myself ever visiting Corralejo and not eating at La Casita which I think shows how great it is! They quickly became a firm favourite with their beautiful food and friendly staff, and despite it being relatively budget-friendly it’s always our choice for a romantic dinner for two as we know it will be a fantastic experience every time. If you’re on holiday in Corralejo and want somewhere excellent for dinner then you’d be missing out by not dining at La Casita.
