With almost twenty years at the helm of a dining room that’s jammed every afternoon, Gabriela Cámara and her crew at Contramar must be doing something right. For one, the seafood on offer—traditional, even homey recipes, impeccably prepared—is among the freshest available. Service is quick, yet warm and enjoyable. It brings in a well-dressed, deliberately coiffed crowd that loves seeing and being seen, table-hopping and air-kissing but, most of all, relishes digging into house specialties like the fish carnitas, the legendary tuna tostadas, and the grilled pescado a la talla (ordered by weight, and served in green or red adobo). Some afternoons (especially Fridays) you can’t believe the waiters have actually squeezed one more person in—yet everyone is very glad they came. Desserts especially recommended. Open for lunch only—which may explain the sense of urgency at the door.
