The staff is very friendly and the view is beyond words. No vegetarian option on the menu. The walk to this place is also worth it. Old ruins of a once prosperous plantation edges the road as you ascend.

El Cabito worth a visit. The view is incredible there's a farm on site and some cliffs if you dare to jump. Dinner took a long time and was very pricey. Not a lot if choices for kids. Bathrooms a bit run down.

I would only recommend accessing this place with a SUV as the roads towards here are pretty tough going. The drive is totally worth it though. The views are stunning and it's a great place to chill and admire the view directly above the sea. Prices here are a little high and we weren't very hungry so we just had... More

I went here for lunch on Christmas Day. The views from this restaurant are breathtaking! Probably best to go during lunch time or sunset, I would think not much to look at at night. Unfortunately, the food is that great. It's average at best. The service was good though, wait staff was very nice. I would definitely go back for... More

I visited El Cabito with a friend for lunch on a quiet Sunday in shoulder season. Although the Lonely Planet implies they aren't open for lunch a quick phone call confirmed that they were! The setting is stunning - after a bumpy 10-15 minute drive from Las Galeras (a 4x4 vehicle is definitely required) you come to a beautiful rustic... More

I go back to El Cabito every time because the view is breathtaking and it is a must!!! A great and romantic place to catch the sunset! I was a bit disappointed with the price of our dinner though last time. The Paella WAS delicious, but I found the bottle of sparkling wine way over priced, which was a bit... More

Definately a great spot to visit. Huge waves smash on massive cliffs. Eat before you go there as the food is not good and overated. Have a mojito and enjoy the view.

View is breathtaking. Have a drink but DO NOT order food. Tasteless and expensive with vegetables coming out of the microwave.

We arranged a taxi to get El Cabito, Las Galeras after wanting a change from our hotel. The views from this restaurant is unbelievable, the place itself is set on a cliff edge type of thing (you will see what I mean when you get there) the food and drinks were welcoming and price was reasonable. I would recommend anyone... More

Too expensive for what it offers. In 4 year the price went up double for the main rooms and the GM is not capable to rin the place
