If you want to go where the Spanish go when on holidays at Isla Canela why not catch the land train and head down to Isla Canela marina. Ignore the new restaurants and cross the little bridge into the white washed village, Punta Moral.
Opposite the man made marina you will see nestled amongst the tight streets several restaurants serving amazing sea food.
Try La Carpa, my recommendation would be a rice dish. There are lots of fish options and small tapas plates.
Take a look on tripadvisor, although a little google translate will be needed as they are mostly in Spanish!
