Booked La Puerta Ancha for our 30th anniversary meal whilst on holiday in Isla Canela a short 10 minute taxi ride away (9 euros).
We enjoyed our meal so much we returned a week later to have lunch which was every bit as good.
To start we had a glass of the cava with the real gold shavings, lovely for a special occassion, followed by the chicken liver mousse infused with sherry. This was so good that I had a double portion on my return visit. We then had steak on the stone, steak that you cook yourself on a stone heated to 360 degrees. The quality of this steak was superb and it was true melt in the mouth stuff, this is accompanied with potato wedges.
We had a jug of sangria, a round of drinks and then it got interesting because the whole areas lights went out. Well as you can imagine there were candles everywhere so for a trip to the loo you took your candle. It was a great atmosphere for the diners (especially those who had eaten) as everyone started chatting away merrilly, although we felt sorry for the owner who lost custom and had to tot the bills up manually which was done with grace. For us it just added to the experience for our anniversary. If I return to the Ayamonte area I will be making a beeline for this restaurant - in winter it closes on a Wednesday.

Fantastic atmosphere with hundreds of local children playing in the tiled square while families of all ages sit and talk - where in the UK?.....Good Music, attentive helpful service and as others have said the food is first class. Went twice during a short stay in Ayamonte.
The chicken liver pate with Pedro Ximenez Sherry is delicious and so is the silver canister beef potato and cheese. The Iberian pork stew sounds quite ordinary in translation but excellent in reality, more solid than you expect with melt- in-the- mouth hunks of pork.
Really good value for money with drinks very reasonably priced. We really appreciated tapas portions of various sizes, rather than one size meals fit all.
Highly recommend it.

Had a great tapas lunch in the sunshine and watched the world wander by in one of the nicest squares in Ayamonte.
The food was excellent and well presented.
Service was friendly and courteous ... something not easy to find in Ayamonte.
All in all, one of our best finds and we visit whenever we are in the area.

It just shows what can be done in a place of average restaurants.
