Translated as 'The Golden Conch', Conca d'Oro is a homely and understated but charming experience, its decor rather more like visiting the front room of a local eccentric than one of the top-rated eateries in town. The menu can feel limited in comparison to the pages offered elsewhere, but this reassuringly indicates the freshness of the produce (seafood especially) and the confidence of the chef in his/her dishes. If you're lucky you'll visit when one of the senior waiters is working; ours spoke perfect English, knew the menu inside out and could pair any dish with a perfect wine suggestion.
