Fodor's Expert Review Aponiente
The recipient of a Michelin star annually since 2013 and maintaining the prized triple star since 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 one tasting menu (€215 , wine pairing €100 extra), 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.
