Here as of today only 4 stars, but we can't say about the actual food in the restaurant. We had some tapas in the bar next to it, very nice, and saw the menu, the fresh fish and lobsters in their tanks, and can only extrapolate when we foresee a potential 5-star experience. Also the situation and location is very... More

The best location. The nicest view. The most beautiful light. The "freshest" fish. We would definitely go there again. Not to be missed!

We enjoy good food and so we asked the receptionist at our Hostel if she could recommend a good restaurant. She recommended Restaurante La Fontanilla. She also suggested that, because it was very popular, we would be advised to book in advance. Which we did. And so we walked along the beach to the Restaurant at lunch time. The table... More

Our starters and main were good. The wine was also a good company for the dishes. The lobster was worth every penny. Together with the wine. Delious!!

One of the best restaurants in Conil. I have visited here a few years previous so looked forward to returning this summer. It did not disappoint. You really need to book in advance as the restaurant is extremely popular with Spanish families . The restaurant is situated by the beach and at night the sunsets are amazing. As for the... More

This place is the closest to the beach, so we stepped in for a lunch to try it. Restaurant was very busy with only few seats available. The service was more or less ok, but not too much concern about guests. I asked few time for salt and pepper. The food was ok, not a world championship but not disgusting,... More

Pretty sure the rubbery calamari was brought in and not prepared from scratch, which is more than a little disappointing for a beachfront restaurant. The paella mixta was decent though. Absolutely heaving, queues for the loos and waiters darting around frantically to ensure maximal table turnover, this wasn't the relaxing lunch we had hoped for.
