After 20 odd years visiting this restaurant, beginning when it was a shack on the beach, we visited after a 5 year gap....what a change! To begin with we were rather worried as the decor and menu had changed so much, but the restaurant is still with the same family and they have just moved with the times... The tuna... More

Slow service for lunch with most of the tables booked. Food was brought out to us which we thought was a complimentary dish for 4, but later found that it was someone's starter! Sorry to say the food we had was average.

Efficient waitering eventhough they get busy. Best to book if you're going to arrive after 10pm. One of the restaurants with the best selection of fresh fish in Conil. Restaurant terrace is on the beach, so most beautiful sunsets can be seen whilst dining

Quite disappointing. Didn't ask how we wanted steak cooked, had to send back as was raw. Weird flavour too. Service very slow. Scallops flavourless. Would not return.

Don't believe the complainers: this place is a fabulous, local-run moderate-upscale beachside eatery. Not cheap, but worth every euro cent. We had carpaccio de atun, langostinos de San Juan, and great cut of grilled tuna, with nice dessert and wines/beers all afternoon. The fact it's full of locals confirms its quality. Well worth it if you're around Conil

Don't delay Just go here as soon as you arrive in conil. A bit more pricey than others but well worth every cent. Setting, food, service. It starts and stops right here!

Francisco is a good restaurant where you can eat good seafood. We had a good lunch here. My partner ordered the gamba's with basilic coating. Very nice. I took the tuna with Yapanese salad and the fried ansjovis. The waiters are very kind and helpful.

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.
