Great setting, food was good but not all of us were able to order as wanted, only 3 of us so once 2 had plumped for the paella mixta the other was unable to have some of the local fish on offer as these were 2 people only. That said twas perfectly decent and reasonable value.

We enjoyed the dinner - the restaurant offers great selection of fish, meat and even dishes for children. We also liked their wine selection and especially the beautiful view on sunset.

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.

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.

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!!
