This week we had to choose where to eat in Fuerteventura that was somewhere in the middle of the island. That was because friends of ours were here on holiday in Fuerteventura, staying in the south of the island in Costa Calma, and we wanted to meet them for lunch.
The restaurant is located in the little village of Vega de Rio Palmas which is in the mountains just outside Betancuria, roughly in the centre of Fuerteventura.
It is in a very quiet setting at the end of the village with views of the mountains from the patio. There is a lovely courtyard, which is a green oasis, and a pond with fish and terrapins/turtles and other wildlife.
The Casa de la Naturaleza restaurant was recommended by my Spanish teacher, Sally, so we decided to meet there. We were glad we did as it turned out to be one of nicest restaurants in Fuerteventura that we have eaten at. The food was good but the setting and the restaurant itself were absolutely amazing.
Whichever way you get to the restaurant means an interesting Fuerteventura mountain road drive. It is a great place for lunch in the mountains and would be good to eat there when visiting Betancuria or the Caves of Ajuy.
As we have had quite a bit of rain this winter, well for here. The island was greener than I have ever seen it before. If you are touring the island and wondering where to eat in Fuerteventura give it a try.
There is a guest house with an infinity pool attached to the restaurant so you could spend the night there too.
