Fodor's Expert Review Aquí Jaime

$$$ Concon Seafood Fodor's Choice

Owner Jaime Vegas is usually on hand here, seating customers and scrutinizing the preparation of such house specialties as ensalada de mariscos Aquíjaime (a seafood salad mix of abalone, crab meat, shrimp, scallops, fried calamari, and clams with melted Parmesan cheese), arroz a la valenciana (paella packed with seafood), and ceviche de centolla (king crab ceviche). Perhaps this is why the small restaurant perched on a rocky promontory next to Caleta Higuerillas has one of the best reputations in the region. Large windows let you watch the waves crashing just below, passing boats and pelicans, and the coast that stretches northward.
