* La Fishita Restaurant

The best fish and chips (and fishcakes too!) I've ever had is at La Fishita restaurant centrally located in Nueva Andalucia. The menu specializes in fish, so everything is fresh and prepared to the highest standard. However, there is a variety of other choices in case you aren't a fish lover, like burgers, kebabs and pies.

I really enjoy the mix of traditional English with Spanish and international cooking. Where else can you find a wasabi-pickled ginger mayo sauce for your fish? You gotta try this out! Click here to read more…

TIP: La Fishita organizes fun quiz nights for kids (La Quizita), so stay tuned for their next event!
