Average food, quite expensive. Very basic seating. Nothing special. Main dish ordered was very small. Not much choice for vegetarians.

Housed in what looks like an old bodega, this gastropub is sympathetically designed to incorporate the old and the new. The service was impeccable. Our waitress knew the menu and was happy to elaborate on the various dishes which she did with friendly charm. The food itself was delightful - thoughtfully conceived and presented. Wouldn´t hesitate to recommend this great... More

I have read so much about how wonderful this restaurant is but I was disappointed. Everything was just OK, normal and nothing more.

The most unusual thing about this setting is not the view outside (a view across an up-market housing district in a resort town from the second floor of a shopping and parking complex), but what appears on your plate. Via Via provides imaginative fusion dining in an unpretentious but pleasant restaurant, served impeccably by attentive personnel. Servings are based on... More

Although the setting is a bit sad (in an almost dismantled shoppingcenter) thanks to a view on the Golf we could still enoy a nice evening. We were suprised, they were only open on fri-sat and sunday. But we went back and got a table for two. The small staters were very delicious and I recomment the milhojas de verduras... More

We discovered this local restaurant whilst staying for two weeks in the Riu Chiclana. We always venture out even if we are staining all inclusive and this didn't disappoint. Whilst we would admit it is a bit of an uninspiring location situated above the SuperSol supermarket, please do not be put off!! We went on a Friday night and having... More

An unsual offer for Chiclana: sophisticated cuisine with innovative dishes all for a very affordable price. An always surprising combination of tastes and textures. A must if you visit the area

With the remoteness of Sancti Petri from main Cadiz this restaurant is a godsend. Although located in an un-inspiring location the food is delicious and the service friendly.

As "foodies" we were very disappointed in the restaurants in this area until we discovered Viavai. We went back four times and no matter what we ordered the food was always excellent. Some of the dishes we ate were duck breast with a gold bonbon of fois gras and blood orange and caviar, sea bass with squid, noodles and green... More

We have a holiday home in Chiclana so have tried a lot of the local restaurants. Viavai is pretty local to us at the Tartessus Centre and its worth stopping there for the sole purpose of trying this place. We first went there for our son's 22nd birthday The food was incredible, beautifully served and delicious. The owner gave us... More
