Antonio, Zahara de los Atunes, Spain.

Antonio is a traditional hotel and restaurant right on the long windswept sandy beach of Zahara de los Atunes. They specialise in fine local tuna here and the quality is unsurpassed. We walked in early for a mid week lunch and within the hour every table had been taken. Spanish folk tend to flock to the very best places with the most superior product unlike here in Manchester where cheap is king.
They bring us a fresh complimentary octopus salad.
Tuna Tartare. Very good but slightly over salted for our taste.
Foie toast and jamón ibérico. A perfect combination.
The pièce de résistance, red tuna sashimi. Absolutely beautiful. There is no need to add anything to product of this quality.
Antonio oozes quality and tradition. It's not cheap but the best things in life rarely are. It's the type of restaurant that the Spanish do so well and are therefore rightfully popular.
Lunch cost us just short of £80 for two.
