A lovely surprise

Great staff, extensive menu either tapas or restaurant, I ordered grilled fish , it was delicious and came with extra seafood and lots of veg. The wine was excellent also. Definitely going to revisit this place before I leave Cadiz.

We'd been looking forward to coming here - it has the look of a destination restaurant in Cadiz and it's always busy. The place looks good, the service was fine, and our Gin and Tonic appetisers came in glasses the size of fish tanks, so we were thinking 'this is going to be good' It wasn't. Starters: my wife had...

I went here after a colleague recommended eating at the barside, and would recommend it to anyone looking for tasteful and taste-filled meal in Cádiz. The waiters were always attending to us from behind the bar, and after being frequently disappointed by pre-made breadrolls at restaurants in Cadiz, I was pleasantly surprised by the fresh rustic bread that accompanied our...

At the bar, excellent quality tapas at a reasonable price. At the tables, perhaps a bit expensive. But a great experience anyway.

We were there having lunch. Service it's extremely slow. We were waiting 30 minutes for the entrance and other 30 minutes for the main dishes. Food was good and tasted, l must say the ingredients (we order tuna and beef) were of good quality, but it was a pity they used frozen chips with a so good beef). It could... More

We had a look at both the restaurant and bar menu and chose the bar one, to not expend much time since we wanted to visit the town. Well.. it was simply delicious.. fast, tasty, new flavours and dishes.. absolutely recommended!

If there are more than two of you i'd advise booking a table or going early. We rocked up at 11ish. From the outside the place looks a bit formal, despite the v cool decor (out of place against your traditional tapas joints). Thought we'd need a reservation but as it had been recommended to us we thought we'd give... More

Very pleasant trendy modern restaurant which is unusual for Cadiz old town. Advisable to book and try and get seated downstairs as upstairs there are no views and lacks any atmosphere unlike downstairs. Very reasonably priced extensive menu including wines.

A stylish restaurant with a wide range of imaginative dishes at a reasonable price. What's not to like? You can take a table in the main part of the restaurant or sit round the bar, but wherever you are you'll get good service and excellent food. The atmosphere is relaxed and relaxing, the wine list is a delight. Not always... More

Nice restaurant with a good menu, lots of fish dishes to choose from. Service was friendly and attentive, pricing very reasonable. Unfortunately there is no outdoor area to sit. Overall a good experience.
