El Portichuelo

Reviewed By robert c

Friendly and welcoming staff. Good service.
Clean and well laid out restaurant, professionally done.
We asked for 2 gin & tonics, when the waitress poured them, no measure used, must have been at least 3xdoubles each, never seen anything like it, usually just get 1x single in the UK. I was concerned as was driving, couldn't finish it, unfortunately!
I was even more surprised when we received the bill, €5 each!!
I ordered Iberian pork, with sauté potatoes and aubergines/sauce, very tender, good quality meat and fresh ingredients. My wife had the tuna, served on sliced tomatoes with pimentos and dressing, more an accompaniment than a meal, she also ordered mix vegetable dish, with tuna, and salads. Tasty. Compared to England, very good value. This is rated the NO1 restaurant in Huelva.??

We arrived for a special birthday meal, stunning restaurant, pleasant staff, but the food outstanding especially the dessert which was a table work of art.If you want a gastronomic experience you must try this, situated only an hour from Portugal.Only one problem when you try to book on line it says the restaurant is fully booked and only tables available 9 and 10 april at 2pm. Best to ring as the restaurant wasnt completely full although it had said so on line, good job the hubby persevered or We would have missed this jewel. We will be back, in the not too distant future

Reviewed By Caroljonmo

Informal modern style restaurant situated above the Recreativo FC football stadium on the Port Road . The access is off putting via a steep staircase off a badly lit "carpark." Each time I have been here for dinner /.tapas its been practically empty. The service is fine, but the portions are on the small side. Fine for tapas- good salpicon de marisco ( seafood salad in vinagrette) if you want a quiet place to talk in the evening. There are big screen TVs which always have football matches on ( sound is usually off) , Speciality is seafood, but on tbe expensive side for what you get in lots of other places cheaper.

Reviewed By GlasgowMak - Glasgow

We were recommended by a restaurant owner of some esteem to dine in this restaurant. We enjoyed a good meal with good service. Whether this is the best restaurant I have no idea as I haven't visited all of them. Our first course was prawns which have to be good in Huelva . The had the confidence to serve them simply and they were good. Pork and lamb for main course also excellent.
For us ( mid seventies) the environment was like being in a museum with dull lighting so it is quite a quiet and somber place to dine. However the food is excellent.

Reviewed By Manuela A - Huelva, Spain

Let's call it a "tapas" bar better than a restaurant. It's clean and it has a lot of tapas made with the best products from our coast and from the countryside. Exquisitely elaborated and very cheap. Don't be late or you'll find it difficult to find one of the few tables free or some room at the bar.
It's worth the visit.

Reviewed By Chris430 - Cambridge, United Kingdom

On a wet Sunday lunchtime, our restaurant of choice was full. We dodged the fat raindrops and made it to La Fonda. Luckily we got their last table inside.
Service was friendly and helpful; the waiter desperate to try out his English. Sadly for him, our hosts were equally insistent on speaking their excellent Spanish.
A great selection of food; I was spoilt for choice! Four light meals, 2 rounds of drinks, 3 desserts and great coffee came to 53€. Great value and on the list for a return visit!

Puro Chup Chup

Reviewed By Beach-Dew - Malaga, Spain

The place claims that the make things "chup chup" way, which means that they cook in a pot boiling on low fire, as a grandma would do, which is also a synonym of good homemade food, or at least it is from my point of view.
We had different dishes: pork knuckle taco, cod muffins, bonito filled with black pudding and tuna "parpatana" (fillet steak). The combinationes were very interesting but the flavors weren't round in all of them. The taco was amazing topped with avocado and a spicy crème fraîche, we really loved it. Cod muffins used factory-baked ones as a Sandwich, they got the perfect combination of flavors with the fish, tomato sauce, onions and a touch of pickle, but I expected real cooking here and baked muffins is one of the things that you expect in a place with such a name. The bonito was impresive, but too sweet for my taste and the tuna was too salty as they took the sauce away after they "painted" the fin. I think we didn't choose correctly or maybe I thought it was going to be better becasue of the great reviews. The price was cheap, the service was over the top, very attentive, so we will come back to see if we can improve the experience, I have to try the "serranito" that looked amazing.

If you´re in need of a quick breakfast or a speedy and delicous lunch this is the place. The service is speedy and friendly, the food of much better quality than you might expect from such a small bar, and the prices offer unbeatable value for money.
