as Tarifa becomes increasingly popular and international, as do our dining options. Here are some of our favourites.
During the summer months, we recommend that you make a reservation
best steak restaurant in the area
3 mins' drive Facinas: Dinner starts at 8.30pm CLOSED MONDAYS
Note: during the summer months, arrive early or reserve a table
The best meat restaurant in the whole area, so if you enjoy good steak and hearty Andalusian cuisine in a cozy setting, the Nene with its extensive meat menu, barbecue and very reasonable prices is a winner! Family owned, they raise all of their own meat and grow their own vegetables, so if your Spanish is good, you can ask the waiter for the full meat history. Note: the portions are huge and delicious!
BB recommends: Sirloin, Carillada, Rabo de Toro and 'Pinchito de Cordero' for children.
10 mins' drive Bolonia: Dinner starts at 8.30pm CLOSED MONDAYS
Oct 15 - May 1 only open weekends and holidays
Famous for its excellent fish and everyone's favorite. No view, and it's not cheap, but the excellent fish makes it worth it.
BB recommends: ' Gambas al ajillo', 'clams', chocolate croquettes, chocolate in its ink.
SUPERB fish restaurant
Pizzeria ZERO 7
10 mins' drive towards Tarifa
Open 1pm - 1am
Magnificent fine-based pizzas, good house wine and excellent banoffee. Very convenient at any time of the day. Don't be put off by its location, there is a nice garden with tables in the back. Kid's play zone. Also to go. If there is a great game in progress, you can be sure that Tribu Playa will show it on its big screens. You got the idea!
BB recommends: 'Pizza Punta Paloma', 'Pizza Vegetal de Luxe', 'gnocchi with serrano ham'

great brunch spot by the beach in the city of Tarifa

Great atmosphere 10 steps from the beach in Tarifa. A short walk from the center of Tarifa, but if you are heading to the city by car, stop at Surla for breakfast. If you are lucky you will find street parking right outside. "Lovely place, great staff and the food is fresh and very tasty. I will be back soon" "Amazing food, amazing service, amazing prices and amazing atmosphere!"
Outstanding restaurant for a special occasion

FOR SOMETHING VERY SPECIAL ... Without a doubt, the best fish restaurant in the area, El Campero combines tradition and modernity. An unexpected location in an urbanization, but people drive for miles around to El Campero where bluefin tuna is the star! A little pricey but 100% worth a visit during your stay.
