Pelicans, gulls, and cormorants linger among the fishing boats anchored near this remarkable seafood restaurant. Since it's next door to the fishermen's cooperative, the seafood is always the freshest. For starters choose from machas (razor clams), camarones (shrimp), or ostiones (scallops) cooked al pil pil (with chili sauce and garlic), a la parmesana (with cheese), or a la crema (with a cream sauce). Then sink your teeth into any of half a dozen types of fish, served with different sauces. The dining room—with a floor of crushed shells and hand-carved chairs resembling sea creatures—is a delight.
