In a villa outside town, the "Lighthouse in the Port" is run by the same family that established the classic El Faro in Cádiz. Like its predecessor, it serves excellent seafood, most of which is freshly caught locally. The chef places the emphasis on seasonal fare, which is reflected in the daily specials, and the restaurant has its own vegetable garden. The impressive wine list runs to over 400 choices. Dining al fresco on the outside terrace is particularly pleasant.
Cheaper but just as tasty dishes are available at the bar.

El Faro is a delight! From soup to dessert, one of the best meals you can find west of Seville. The menu is superb and surprising and includes such dishes as flounder with mussels in a sherry-saffron sauce. The helado de queso (marscapone ice cream) is must!
