La Fontanilla beach in Conil has two fish restaurants that do excellent Paella.

Spanish friends always say the restaurant next to Popeye's (Barrossa) is the best but many English I know swear by Antonio┬┤s (El Colorado). I often send OH for takeaway from either when we have visitors; which one depends on how authentic they want it.

I can confirm that Nueva Alegria (the restaurant next to Popeye) do indeed do a fantastic paella both to take away and to eat in at the restaurant. Often tried to copy it but never quite managed !!!

There are always alot of Spanish families on Sunday lunchtimes at Zurga's on La Barrosa sea front and most of them seem to order a large paella.

Nueva Alegria is a very good place. I would recommend instead of Paella, Arroz a la Marinera, it has a lot more taste (has a lot of sea food)

If like me you're not a fish eater, come to Valencia, the birthplace of paella, where the original, 'authentic' recipe has rabbit and chicken but no seafood.

Now I've tried paella without seafood as I too am not much of a 'fish eater' but I have to admit it's just not as nice as a paella mixta.

You should do what I do, share the dish with a seafood fan and just eat the meat, veg and rice - all the taste, non of the fish!!!

Mmmmmm.. sounds delicious. Rabbit is just so tasty. Last summer when were down at Bolona beach ( after Vejer) there was sign on the beach by the chairs saying paella served. I cannot remember the times, but wonder if anyone has tried it. We ate at the chiringito in April and the food was delicious..simple fresh and well cooked.
