This was the one right on the beach, the Rough Guide's top choice, and it didn't disappoint. The plump lenguado was a particular delight and the bottle of Manzanillo at only 10 Euros was a perfect accompaniment. Packed with locals on a Saturday afternoon - which says a lot. Tried to return for Tuesday lunch but was closed. They obviously... More

NOTE - As per a previous correspondent, there are 2 restaurants with same name in Conil. This review relates to the one at Fontanilla beach. I have tried to report the confusion to Tripadvisor but as yet nothing appears to have been changed. The restaurant is right on the beach and offers superb views of the sunset as a free... More

Really good food well served, they seem to be really trying. Fish excellent. Exquisite starter. Sat inside because it was so hot outside - but nice view of what was going on outside on the front.

We ate here on our first night in Conil, because the realtor of our villa said that Francisco's is the best of the beach restaurants. The location is wonderful and the service was good. My daughter strongly disliked the squid meatballs. The fries were limp. The tuna plate was lovely, but the guacamole had hard bits and rotten bits, a... More

NOTE: There is more than one restaurant with this name in the area and I fear that some of the reviews here are for the "other" one. The one we went to is called Restaurante Francisco la Fontanilla and it is right on the beach (playa de la Fontanilla). Their web site is at http://www.franciscofontanilla.com/ This was one of the...

We ate in this restaurant twice while on holiday & all 7 of us had fantastic meals both times. Some of the food came with fresh vegetables which is a really bonus in Spain. We ate meals such as the Ox tail stew (which was lovely slow cooked meat), rock fish, fish stew, paella, tuna sushimi, cod.... None of us... More

A proper restaurant on the beach - not a Chiringuito. Serves good traditional fish meals with views of Fontanilla beach in Conil

We went here twice during our stay in Costa de la Luz. The first time was for lunch. The place was heaving. We ordered sea bass baked and sea bass in salt. Granted we had to wait, but we expected that. Both dishes were just fantastic. We returned at night a few days later. It was much quieter. We watched... More

Have visited Conil de la Frontera many times. This is by far one of the best restaurants in the area. Right on the beach - excellent seafood, fantastic wine! Children can play in the sand whilst you watch the sunset! Good value for money. Would definitely recommend. For those who complain about the service - remember you are in Spain... More
