We have lived between Spain and Gibraltar for coming up to three years now, and I'll be honest (and a little embarrassed) to tell you and tell you that Iv only just managed to make the trip to Zahara de los atunes
My friends are absolutely shocked by this fact, as its a real favourite place for more or less everyone who lives in this area. About a 30 Minute drive from Tarifa (a super cute beach town, I wrote about it here)
In fact, my lovely friend Anna was so dismayed that I was missing out on the whole Zahara vibe that she scheduled in a Friday lunch date. Aren't friends just the best!?
Zahara is more of a fishing village, much smaller than Tarifa. Smaller but perfectly formed, in that rustic, understated bohemian Spanish way that I have come to adore.
There is so much creativity and ingenuity...
She showed me a little favourite place of hers... 21 restaurant . Tucked away through one of the little streets, its the kind of place you need to know someone who knows about it. Hooray for Anna ( who has kindly taken up the position of Spanish life guide to me)
Its probably one of Zahara's fancier restaurants...But still bohemian and charming.
We took a table outside, nibbled on the freshest just out of the oven warm bread (is there anything better?) and caught up on some good old gossip while we waited for our lunch
I started with the baked brie which was incredible, Followed by the freshest monk fish ever. Zahara is actually known for its fish, as you would expect from a fishing village. And i'm told the tuna here is out of this world!
Next time I visit ill be sure to show you the beach which is spectacular!
I definitely recommend grabbing a dinner or lunch at 21 if your visiting Zahara, you wont be disappointed
