Traditional restaurant with a modern touch. With a large menu of fish, brought in daily from the fish market of Conil. With great presence of wild red tuna from the almadraba, cooked in traditional or Japanese style dishes. Located on the beach of La Fontanilla, Conil at the south of Spain, it has stunning views.
