What a treasure this place is! Almost on the beach, with a wonderful variety of Spanish food. The munchies that they brought out with our drinks order included a plate of lovely grilled Marcona almonds. The seafood platter was wonderful,  as was  the Seafood Soup (sopa de mariscos).After a hearty meal, two wines/beers each (2 people),dessert and coffee, our jaws dropped in surprise when the bill came, about 20 euros each.  Along with the food, the sweeping views of the beach and the lake were wonderful, the service very attentive and helpful, making it a very, very pleasant experience!

The food in most of the local restaurants is very very similar, with fried or grilled meat or fish, it gets a bit 'same'. Charcon II is one of the better restaurants and the food does stand out from the other places, coupled with friendly...More

A very good menu - I could not read past the baby squid - Chupitos, my favourite. We sat with an ice cold beer, looking out over the sand to the lake, eating the almonds and olives that had been brought out. Service was excellent....More
