Sometimes you have no choice but to consult Tripadvisor though, especially abroad where there may not be as many blogs and review websites. Such a case in point was Feduchy Lounge in the Spanish seaside town of Conil de la Frontera. The reviews were unanimous, this was the very best of 85 restaurants in town. Turns out it was fabulous as well, and cheap too.
Feduchy Lounge is at the entrance to the old town wall, where the little fountain is. We turned up early (8.30pm is really early in Spain,) to guarantee a seat outside and set to order.
Salmorejo (A typical cold soup similar to gazpacho with tomato and ham and a hard boiled egg, €2.50) This was fabulous, creamy and fresh. So cheap too, I don't think you can ever find food of this quality at this price in the UK.
Smoked sardines fillet on tomatoes (€3.50). Surely this can't be this price can it? Amazing value.
So the moral of the story is sometimes it does pay to listen to Tripadvisor. Other times it doesn't. Ok there is no moral, just make your own minds up.
Or ask someone who knows.
