The "Tómbolo de Trafalgar", a local card game, comprises a sandy isthmus joining Cape Trafalgar to Christmas and the mainland. In the 1930s the town... More

We came in the restaurant expecting it to be good and it surprised by being delicious. You can find a wide variety of dishes all cooked in very different styles, flavors and sophisticated presentations. A wonderful experience that we expect to repeat soon!
