On the way to Famara, you can visit one of our favourites of his creations; the Mirador del rio, like a modernist James Bond hideout built into the cliff with stunning panoramic views.
Pedro Almodóvar's film Broken Embraces. El Risco is at the end of the village and you can see the rocks and the windsurfers on the beach from it's little terrace.
We got there early to get the best table. The interior is plain and simple as many family restaurants are in Spain. They catch their own fish in the local waters. We went for an old favourite; Arroz Negro (Black Rice). It actually mirrors the local volcanic landscape this dish. I always find rice dishes like this Paella and Fideuà very comforting. (Fideuà is actually very small thin pasta so it's similar).
It was excellent and as black as tar. (The squid ink gives it the intense colour). We dozed in the sand dunes afterwards watching the windsurfers flying on the sea.
