We had a great dining experience at Francisco La Fontanilla. A lively beach-side restaurant which was buzzing with relaxed holiday makers. We ate delectable red tuna carpaccio, a beautifully presented tuna sashimi and shrimp fritters which tasted like grandma had made them. My young daughter had a steak which they willingly reduced to a half portion for her, it was... More

A great setting but disappointing. Staff rushed off their feet. Very noisy. A lot of kids. Bottle of water thrown on the table to us as was our bottle of wine. Had the paella for 2 which was okay but dried up and not much seafood. The grilled fish dishes in the restaurant looked good so obviously this is the... More

Nice place to eat fish, especially tuna in all types (raw, rare, etc.). The service is excellent and the relation quality/price it is very good. For the second year, we have been there and always leave with a good impression of this restaurant.

This was recommended to us by a local and proved to be an outstanding find. It is right on the Fontanilla beach in Cornill and the freshness, quality and value of the seafood is outstanding. The choice is wide and we had oysters, crab, wonderful sole and hake. It also does meat dishes but this is primarily a seafood restaurant.... More

I hope I have the right place because the restaurant is called Francisco de Fontanilla, there is no "Casa" in the name. It is indeed on the beach and on the road that leads down to the parking from Camino de Fontanillo. We had the seafood paella which was very good. It is a dish for two at €16 per... More

We're repeat customers for many years. Every time we're near the coast it's a must visit. Always excellent. Shellfish is always outstanding and the rice with Carabineros is fantastic.

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
