I fancied eating at a different restaurant last night.
I'd read the reviews on Tripadvisor and an establishment called Sanus caught my eye.
Sanus is located in Corralejo at Calle Anzuelo, or the Big Ben Centre as it is sometimes called.
I went for a walk earlier in the day to have a look, and first impressions were of a spotlessly clean place, simple and aesthetically attractive.
So at six o'clock last night I walked the ten minutes from my pad to Sanus.
I was the first customer.
I explained that I hadn't booked, though that was not a problem: I could sit where I wished.
I opted to sit outside, given that it was 22c last night in Fuerteventura.
Sanus specialises in gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, and diabetic diets; though do not be deterred by these stipulations if you have no allergies or happen to be non-vegetarian like self.
There is fillet of beef on the menu.
I chose the fried parcels of goat's cheese with home-made tomato jam as a starter.
While I was waiting I made full use of the free wifi.
I was offered black olives. I ate two, though curiously I find them a bit too salty for my taste.
My main course was the tuna, which was perfectly sliced - almost Japanese style - and served with aubergine, again exquisitely sliced and arranged on the plate.
I had two glasses of a nicely chilled local white wine, though it might have been more prudent to order something else because it cost €9 and the measures were not huge.
Still, it was a fine meal and I dare say somewhat extraordinary in this resort, given that the vast majority of restaurants cater for less discerning palates.
The bill came to about €33, including a tip.
I intend to revisit Sanus and perhaps try the pumpkin soufflé, the fungi ravioli, or a hearty risotto.
