Fodor's Expert Review Aponiente
The recipient of a Michelin star annually since 2013 and given the prized triple star in 2018, Ángel León showcases his creative seafood dishes in this unusual restaurant housed in an 18th-century tidal mill whose decor takes you under the sea with fishtail-back chairs and mermaids. Aponiente serves two tasting menus (€195 for 12 dishes, €225 for 16), and you can expect plenty of gastronomic inventions such as pumpkin tacos with anchovy, cuttlefish with potatoes, and rice with plankton and sea cucumber. Tables can be reserved only 1–2:15 for lunch and 8–9:15 for dinner, and only via the online booking form.
