When you’re planning your next holiday, you’ll want to take the extra effort to ensure that every detail of your trip is thoughtfully planned to cater to your tastes. Flights and accommodations often require a lot of consideration and often take your attention away from other details such as attractions, shopping opportunities, and cultural hotspots. It’s important to try to get a feel for the flavor of your destination, and the best way to do it is by immersing yourself in the traditions of the natives. Whether it’s something as extravagant as a festival or as simple as planning an authentic dining experience, it’s always rewarding to experience a bit of the local culture. You can’t go wrong with Fuerteventura restaurants, as they offer a glimpse into the culinary customs of the islanders and a touch of international influence to boot.

Because Fuerteventura is surrounded on all sides by the Atlantic Ocean, its cuisine leans heavily on the bounty of the sea. Fish and shellfish of many varieties are abundant in the waters around the island. Additionally, a notable portion of the Fuerteventura economy rests in the fertile plains inland, with fruits and vegetables being the focal point of the agricultural harvests. Potatoes are an island favorite, and many of the local dishes are served with them. Papas arragudas, which means “wrinkled potatoes” in English, is a uniquely prepared dish that resembles a baked potato but is soaked in salt water to give it a wrinkled appearance.

Wherever you are on the island, you’ll never be far from a thorough selection of great Fuerteventura restaurants. In Corralejo, you can sample a fine seafood dish at Dovela, or your can indulge in some upscale and sophisticated Spanish cuisine at El Andaluz. If you’re feeling like grabbing a bite to eat that reminds you of home, you could check out Fado Rock Steakhouse in Caleta de Fuste which has received high marks for their steaks and English-style seafood. Whether you’re in the mood for something exotic or ordinary, you’ll never have trouble locating a dish that appeals to your palette.
