We travelled 40km to come back to this sensational fish restaurant, so atmospheric, so well cared for by its staff and with the most fantastic sea food. The waiter couldn't have been more caring and tailored each course to our numbers and appetite. The consommé, fish soup and fantastic sopa de cebolla formed an awesome start. We then had entremesse of piementos de pardon, chopitos fritos, then langostinos. Each was served patiently and with great care ... The langostinos were the best we've ever had, bursting with sweet juicy flesh, shells paper thin. We then had the 2 daily speciality fish courses and they were amazing, all washed down with a sensational Albariño. So so impressed.

This friendly, traditional fish restaurant is in a great location with views over the harbour. Welcomed with warm bread and mojo dip- always a great start. I ate a good portion of the succulent grilled sole and my wife enjoyed the spicy rabbit. Good, friendly service.

You can't go to El Medano without trying the local restaurants that specialise in fish. This one had a cold cabinet where you could choose your own should you wish. Although my husband had the grilled whole sole I opted for the lamb chops. Another great meal with the mojo sauce served with the bread on arrival. Fabulous.

This is the 3rd and most picturesque location of Avencio's restaurants in El Medano over the years. So close to the sea that you feel the waves against the wall, it really feels that the freshest fish are selected directly through the window. The choice of local catch is extensive and the cooking is subtle so not to overpower the taste. Avencio's sense of humour may be lost on some, but he's a warm and welcoming host, and his staff are knowledgeable and friendly. A traditional and cosy restaurant, it's not really suitable for restless kids and tends to be mainly adults. My Brother's favourite haunt, he always chooses the Cherne (translated as Sea-Perch, but actually wreckfish)

Our favourite El Medano restaurant was closed for the day, but the owner recommended the Astillero. A very good recommendation and we had a really super meal and a good laugh and chat with the owner. The restaurant specialises in sea-food, but offers other dishes; meat, etc. Three of us had fish, the fourth lamb chops, which he said were delicious and tender.
Helpings were generous, so no room for sweet, but the coffee and barraquitos are strong and tasty.
A charming touch on leaving is the presentation of roses to the ladies and a lollipop for the gentlemen!
