We really like the bustling tavern Las Delicias situated at San Sebastian street with their friendly staff, phenomenal cordon bleu and house wine Valdecuriel Roble from Ribera del Duero. Another tavern Taberna La Chanca situated close to the Paseo Maritimo boulevard offers fantastic sea views and has large selection of delicious tapas on menu. When dining there (watch out, the portions are real big;), mention to the restaurant manager Miguel Angel that you are staying at La Dorada and you will very likely be treated with a shot of liquor or small tapas..While exploring the local tapas bars and restaurants in Conil, make sure you dive into Campito known for delicious tapas with a touch of creativity, La Almazara, winner of the Ruta del Atún 2012 contest for the best local tuna dish or Blanco y Verde with their legendary choco al ajillo on the menu.
Restaurants La Fontanilla and Francisco lying side-by-side are conveniently located at the beachfront of La Fontanilla beach. The restaurants, although being on the more expensive side have an extensive choice of fish and other seafood dishes, which are locally caught and well presented. Why don’t you start for example with ortiguillas de mar (fried sea anemones) which is a local delicacy offered in Gulf of Cadiz area.
If you fancy having a drink or watching some footie, head to one of the two hip lounges/bars located at the roundabout just ante portas to the old town (Café Central and Feduchy) or to the recently opened (October 2012) music bar Vintage at Plaza de la Constitución.
In case you want to bury your feet in the sands of La Fontanilla beach and have a fresh salad washed down with cerveza then take a seat under one of the thatched umbrellas of La Ola.
Beach bar La Cabana at Bolonia beach could be easily described as one of the most romantic and chilled-out places on earth. Sipping your long drink while watching a stunning sunset is an unforgettable experience that will never fade in your mind.
Even if you are not a surfing enthusiast, an afternoon away in El Palmar, which is within a stone’s throw from Conil is a must. The laid-back atmosphere of this tiny village, magnificent sand dunes and beach and proximity of the beach shacks serving variety of tapas and refreshments make this place really special and definitely worth a visit.
Also, don’t miss out on churros (‘Spanish doughnuts’ which come with hot chocolate or white coffee) picked up from Churreria La Chana on a Sunday morning;)
