la taberna de el campero

my favourite restaurant

so 2 weeks in vejer just flew by – it was unusually windy, not a cold breeze, but a hot gust – levante – coming from the sahara;  fortunately its this wind that keeps the town bearable from the heat and if you sit in front of one of the many chiringuitos on the beach, you will barely feel the whip of sand.  the sea is always refreshing at this time of year.  what you must not do is sit on the beach during 12 – 5pm – the art is arriving at a nearby restaurant, taking a leisurely lunch, then moving to the beach.  we have several favourites – conil and la fontanilla, el palmar and nacarum (formally la chanca),  but my favourite is la taberna de el campero in zahara, followed by a dip in the sea on the lovely beach, which is surrounded by dunes and desert plants.
