Concierge.com's insider take:
Located in the beachy suburb of Ciudad Jardí, El Bungalow is where the island's top chefs head for seafood dishes and sumptuous paellas when their own work is done. Little more than a basic fisherman's cottage on the beach, with two fairly ordinary terraces smartened up by fluttering cotton canopies (be sure to specify the one with the sea view when booking), its lack of pretense is a big part of the draw. Show up early to secure a coveted terrace spot with the Mediterranean waves lapping just inches from your toes, and linger over tantalizing dishes of purple-lipped clams steamed in white wine and garlic; heaps of mussels; and buttery, perfectly cooked squid. Booking essential.
