    February 2016, our dinner experiences, while staying at the Elba Palace Golf & Vital

    We had dinner every evening at St. Andrews at the Elba Palace Golf & Vital, Caleta de Fuste, Fuerteventura, Spain during our stay at this landmark hotel due to having chosen full board wich was spot on. It is the fine dining restaurant.

    The restaurant is located at the beautiful courtyard of the hotel and is classic elegant designed throughout.

    The Maître d' welcomed us every evening and either let us choose our table or brought us to one, depending how busy St. Andrews was.

    We would recommend to come early or from 21.00 hours onwards, because the busiest time was always around 19.30 hours to 20.00 hours.

    Our fellow diners were generally older and only a few other couples were younger or our age.

    There was also a piano player which played classical tunes which suited the upscale atmosphere of this restaurant.

    The cuisine was upscale and a mix of international and Spanish highlights served table de hote.

    As guests on full board we could choose any main course from the menu, the vital cuisine or the specials of the day.

    Starters and desserts were served buffet style. There were some staples, but there was every day something new, so it didn't get boring at all.

    Appetizers included cold cuts, smoked fish, salads, fresh and roasted vegetables, bread and butter and much more.

    Main courses were based on international and regional cuisine. We liked the selection of the spa menu, the fish, chicken skewers and the ravioli as special of the day.

    There was also a good choice of wine. My fiancé had a dessert wine from Lanzarote, which he enjoyed.

    Desserts were wide ranging from fruits to yogurt/cream based desserts to cake and ice cream. The ice cream was self-service.

    According to a German diner the only word you must know in German is Schlagsahne (whipped cream). He had caused some stares and after saying this laughs, because he really liked his whipped cream. It was much more than the ice cream.

    All the meals were very delicious and enjoyable.

    We would look forward to stay again at this beautiful hotel and yes, we would chose full board again, it's worth it.

    Would we recommend this restaurant to a friend? YES!
    Would we want to eat again at this restaurant in our future? YES!

    Thank you and safe travels. :)
