Where to eat in Fuerteventura – Casa de la Naturaleza in Vega de Rio Palmas

where to eat in Fuerteventura

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.

Location

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.

Nice places to eat in Fuerteventura #2:

Citrus Surf Cafe, Corralejo, Fuerteventura

The second in a series of some nice places to eat in Fuerteventura we visit Citrus Surf Cafe in Corralejo. These are not necessarily the places which serve the absolute best food, although they could be, but places that in my opinion  have a nice atmosphere, environment and/or views.

Citrus is a lovely chilled place to have something to eat or a drink at any time of the day or night. Their prices are very reasonable, they serve good food, it offers a nice chilled nice atmosphere and has nice friendly and efficient staff. On Tuesday evenings they have acoustic live music and they have a good fixed price barbecue on a Friday evening. I can definitely recommend the Thai Chicken Curry. Their website is http://citrus-surfcafe.com

On the first Saturday morning of each month they host a coffee and cup cake morning from 9:30 to 11:30 in aid of Fuerteventura Dog Rescue with all proceeds going to help the dogs in the local shelter. Pop along if you are there. Fuerteventura Dog Rescue Website

I have no tie in with this or any other restaurant. It is purely my recommendation.

No.1: Los Caracolitos Restaurant, Salinas del Carmen, Fuerteventura

Los Caracolitos Restaurant, Salinas del Carmen. The first in a series of some nice places to eat in Fuerteventura. These are not necessarily the places which serve the absolute best food, although they could be, but places that, in my opinion, either have a nice atmosphere, environment and/or views.

 

Salinas del Carmen is easy to find as it is just a kilometre or so south of Caleta de Fuste immediately off the main coast road. Just look out for the signs to Museo las Salinas (The Salt Museum) and the village of Salinas del Carmen is right next to it.

It is primarily a fish restaurant but it does serve chicken and steak too. The prices are about average I would say and you get the great sea view thrown in for free!
