Think of a perfect evening; a magnificent setting, a west-facing terrace, a beautiful sunset and add a superb meal to the equation and you have the restaurant “Azzurro” in El Cotillo.
Situated on the coast road overlooking the beautiful sandy beach Azzurro is a must for a visit whilst on your holidays. Ricky, the new manager and his team offer a very warm welcome to all visitors. There are many tasty additions to the regular menu. The decor is stunning. Ricky is a photographer and his unique style is portrayed in the interior pictures adorning the walls.
The restaurant is open every day, except Monday , from lunch time through until late pm. The evenings offer a fantastic view of the sun setting over the ocean & slowly disappearing into the water, providing you with one of the most amazing and beautiful sunsets that you will ever see.
Not only is the scenery stunning, but Azzurro sports an unusual and tasty selection of dishes, it is based around Italian but with some local touches thrown in. For starters I recommend the “aubergine and parmesan pie” or the” beef carpaccio and parmesan.” The aubergine works so well in this and it is presented really well. These are just a sample of the great selection of specialities available; they all looked so good on the menu that it was hard to choose, with options such as Steak, lamb, pork dishes and of course a great variety of fish and paellas you really are spoilt for choice. Another speciality is thin strips of fillet, served on a bed of rocket salad and toped with – yes you’ve guessed; thin slivers of parmesan!
The wine menu is extremely varied and offers a great choice to accompany all dishes. All desserts are home made, if you have any room left try to squeeze one in, they are real scrumptious.
After a hard day’s Sunbathing on the stunning beaches, come here to relax and unwind, take in the beautiful scenery and beaches surrounding the restaurant as the night descends and the colours turn golden – it really is a sight to behold.
Don’t forget to finish with one of their special coffees, or in my case that glass of brandy (or two) to complete the image.
Ps. Don’t forget your camera to photograph the amazing sunset..
