I don't know the name of the dish, but ask for what they do best. They'll bring out what I believe is beef cheeks and potatoes with a sauce. Reminded me a bit of pot roast, but better. I was told that this restaurant specializes in beef and ham, so skip the seafood. We tried the cazon and while it... More

We enjoyed a round of Tapas here the other day. The special tapa of the house was melt in your mouth beef and potatoes. Very good. But what really stood out to us where how delicious the olives they serve are. A little sweet a little salty, and so flavorful that even my husband who doesn't like olives wanted to... More

Everything here is carried off professionally and in a friendly yet formal restaurant manner. The restaurant is traditional, and as the evening progresses, the locals take over. I had a wonderful wild boa entrecote with chorizo, and a flan to finish. house wine was excellent. Prices are good for what is on offer. 10 out of 10 for this one.... More

Love the place. Great grilled pork...the caradilla (pork cheek) de Cerdo is excellent, the croquettes, pattatas, ....etc The place is always full. Get there abt. 8:45pm for tapas. You can make dinner reservations. A cosy establishment. Definitely a must, when in Cadiz!

We have had many business dinners in this place - the restaurant has its Spanish charm but in the same time its offers privacy (in case you have something important to discuss for example). The food was good but I believe the cooks should show have been more inventive when creating the menu. I would recommend the selection of cheeses,... More

Some friends from Chipiona took us to this place. We had a great time enjoying the tapas, beer, conversation and the ambiance of the establishment.

We had a wonderful evening. As we were six people, I wrote an email one evening before. The restaurant reacted promptly. Great. Dinner was good. We had the big grill plate. It is a lot of good food for a good price.

Big space inside. Sat at the bar, had a couple of cold beers and some excellent tapas. The service was professional, fast and friendly, these guys know what they are doing.

This is a popular tapas bar with a restaurant. We went to the restaurant and were disappointed. Although the food was not bad, it was heavy. The mixed salad was composed of everything out of a can or jar except the tomatoes (corn, white asparagus, pickled beets and carrots…). Perhaps the tapas are a better option, but not the restaurant.

Great food with a wide choice of tapas at the bar. Excellent Rioja at prices you couldn't dream of in the UK.. We had an excellent evening.
