In Isla Cristina there are several restaurants and local bars available for lunch and dinner. This affords a good opportunity to mingle with Spanish people and experience another aspect of local culture. Meals can also be prepared and cooked in the apartments’ fully equipped kitchens using fresh food bought in the local market. Meals in route: You can always choose between preparing a sandwich by yourselves or coming with us to a restaurant, and also find another restaurant by your own, that’s why these meals are completely optional. Normally the price doesn’t exceed 15€.

* There are alternatives for people who do not eat meat or have some kind of food intolerance.

Our suggestions are entirely optional, managing meals are done to help the course of the routes is the most appropriate and possible so that you can enjoy the wide variety of cuisine offered throughout the province of Huelva. With the recommendation of these small restaurants we try to help small craft businesses present in each of our routes and stimulate the local economy.

The Andalusian Province of Huelva is extremely famous the diversity of superb quality seafood from its coast, and the highly prized cured ham made from acorn-fed Iberian pigs from the mountains. Plates of thinly sliced ‘jamon’ are ubiquitous throughout the bars and restaurants of the sierra whilst the pigs can be seen grazing beneath oak trees on the hillsides. Also not to be missed is the seafood landed daily at the port in Isla Cristina. King prawns are caught in the estuary together with delicious white prawns – unmistakable due to their colour and taste. Clawed lobsters, spiny lobsters, and ‘coquina’ a tasty type of clam are other examples of the delicious seafood available.
