What Micky Eats...

Summary: For our last meal in Spain, we decided to walk over to the port area where there are a few newer restaurants overlooking the harbor. The first restaurant's menu caught our eye right way and we sat at a lovely table on the patio overlooking the water. It was quite crowded, yet service was the best we've had so far in Spain. We enjoyed our last bottle of Cava while starting with more large fresh clams that were prepared much like the steamed mussels that we enjoy back home and another goat cheese and vegetable starter. I ordered the local rape, also known as monkfish, which I had been wanting to try the whole time we were there. It was grilled plainly and a little on the rare side for me, but I still enjoyed the meaty portion. Keith ordered the salt encrusted fish and enjoyed the table side presentation - our server did a great job - I wish I had taken photos! We were too stuffed for dessert and were treated to shots of peach Schnapps that came with our bill. It was funny! All in all, with the fresh food, great service and the fantastic sunset view, this restaurant ranked highest among them all.
