Very nice restaurant for evening meal. If you can't eat fish the choice is very limited. Starters and mains were really large, so you could share. My fish in seafood sauce was gorgeous but my husband tuna with onions was tough and hard - tasted a bit like liver! Squid and croquettes were great.
Lovely setting overlooking the beach and very popular after 9.00pm.

We have been coming to this restaurant on Fontanilla Beach for years. Our 12 year old was here in a high chair. The beach is a long flat expanse of sand covered with parasols as families stake out their piece of it for the day. The waves come racing in on the tide. In the middle of all this activity is this cool welcoming restaurant. The ambience is calm. The tables are set with white cloths and large white napkins. There is a fish tank. The staff are impeccably dressed in white pique shirts. You need to either book a table or get there early for lunch. It is a very popular restaurant. This time we had an exquisite plate of tuna carpaccio. Delicious with the fresh rolls. The mixed salad is a must and then the choice is endless. We enjoy shellfish and we weren't disappointed, lovely fresh clams, sizzling gambas in spicy oil, calamares. Great lunch before taking to the beach.

We had dinner at La Fontanilla almost every evening and we never got bored of the fresh food they serve and the friendliness of the staff. Try the starters and then go to the local fish (red tuna is a must, croaker, sword fish, sea brass) or shrimps, prawns, lobsters and crabs, all kept fresh in a nice tank at the entrance.

The prices were reasonable and the restaurant itself was very nice giving you the opportunity to see one of the best sunsets in Spain, and trust me, it's different and simply amazing every time you see it!

Thank you, Pedro, Diego, and Antonio (the owner), we'll be back soon! Felicidades!
