Wonderful place to watch and hear the sea

A beautiful location with the main restaurant set in an old tuna factory which has been really beautifully restored. We have eaten there many times in previous years but this year the menu has been changed with a much more imaginative style. Well worth a visit.

The waiter was extremely helpful and took us through what the dishes were. Some very different slants on the food but all very good.

Firstly, check which restaurant you're writing about! Some of the reviews here are about la chanca in Conil old town rather than el Palmar beach.. We had a couple of waiters/waitresses and the first was a moody, miserable, impatient man who huffed and puffed when I asked him to help me move 2 tables together for our group and then... More

The setting, on El Palmar beach is seductive. This beach restaurant has a simple yet elegant decoration. But the food is over priced, portions mean and service lacks any warmth or respect. The photo posted here is of the calamari - 12 euros. Absurdly overpriced. When we mentioned this we were told they strictly serve only 200 grammes - an... More

Stopped in here for a tapa couple of times this restaurant is probably the one with most varieties of tuna dishes in Conil.and they mastered them to perfection. Always good tasty food, though no aud cuisine, this place is honest, cosy and the service is the friendliest ever! .

Swift and efficient service. Good choice of food at reasonable prices. Recommend the pulpo & revueltos although the tortillitas de camerones were a little soggy.
