by on Nov.19, 2009, under Restaurants in Corralejo

La Scarpetta Restaurant

La Scarpetta can be found just of the high street of Corralejo. At the roundabout turn left and head towards the shopping centre with the clock tower. Just inside, round the corner you will find this wonderful  restaurant.  La Scarpetta is the perfect venue for a special meal whether as a couple for a romantic meal or as a group who like something different.   Mario is the owner and he will greet you with a warm welcome.

La Scarpetta restaurant corralejoThe menu comes in two parts – the standard menu with pasta, chicken and fish dishes and the other part that is something a little bit different is Mario’s Specials of the day.  Make sure you are paying attention here as Mario will come to the table and describe the menu ( in various different languages!). He knows his food very well and will give a mouth watering description of how each dish is cooked and what it is served with.  A tip is to remember the ones you like as he goes along, otherwise Mario will finish talking and you will want everything on the menu.  His trick is to combine foods that you wouldn’t consider putting on the same plate – yet it works and makes for a great meal.

The wine choice in La Scarpetta is extensive and he is very knowledgeable about them, having travelled to other parts of Europe to buy them.  If you can make it to the sweet menu the fresh tiramisu is definitely worth trying before you make your way up to Flicks Bar for a fantastic night out……………

Car Hire In Corralejo

Corralejo Car Hire 

car hire in CorralejoEverything in Corralejo is within walking distance so there is actually no need to hire a car, however there are lots of wonderful places to visit on the island.  So, if one day you’ve had enough of lying by the pool or playing on the beach, hire a car, get out of Corralejo and explore…

Driving in Fuerteventura is pretty simple as long as you remember to keep on the right hand side!! The roads are quiet and the island doesn’t have that many roads so you shouldn’t get lost.  Basically one road runs from north to south of Fuerteventura with roads turning off to each coastline along the way..

Corralejo car hireHiring a car is easy as long as you are over 21 and have a valid driving licence.  There are lots of different companies offering car hire in Corralejo and they offer everything from the smallest 2 door economy car to a luxurious convertible or a family people carrier.

In our personal opinion we’d stick to the larger companies such as Hertz and Avis simply from a peace of mind with the insurance as you are driving in a strange country on the wrong side of the road.  However having said that, there is a Canarian based Car Hire company that is recommended called Cicar where some great deals can be found….
