The best tapas I have ever had in Spain !! There were 4 of us and we could all not agree more on how gr8 the food was. In fact we returned the night after, something we rarely do when touring on a holiday. Tapas are very creative and varied, and there are so many of them on menu that... More

My friends and I went there in Mid Summer when we took a short trip to Cadiz. Our hotel recommended this restaurant for us and thank them for doing it! Lovely, lovely place, well located too. Great menu, reasonable prices and very friendly staff.

We went 2 times to this restaurant during our week stay in Cadiz (we never go somewhere twice on a holdiday). Location is beautiful, next to the sea and it's also really nice on the inside. We had tapas there (you eat the tapas at the bar) and it was the best food we had during our roadtrip in Spain.... More

Our first night in Cadiz the hotel recommended this establishment. The staff was pleasant and our server suggested many dishes to try. My prawn salad, in which I expected shrimp and lettuce was a huge plate of potato salad covered in mayo with one prawn sliced and a chuck of artificial crab on top. Yuck. This was in fact listed...

Our hotel in Sevilla recommended we visit Balandro while in Cadiz and glad we took his advice. Nice modern upmarket atmosphere over looking the sea at Cadiz. We sat at the bar and tried Rolled smoked salmon with cheese and dried fruits, bacaloa with hummus and fish roe AND fried Sea Anemones. All excellent and the fried foods are so... More

Slightly embarrassingly I ate here all three nights I was in Cadiz, but it does demonstrate that the food was great. The restaurant is nicely decorated in a modern glamour style with wallpaper, plastic seats and chandeliers. I sat at the bar and had tapas as opposed to the restaurant dining area. Portions were a decent size and everything was... More

We had a meal in the restaurant as opposed to the bar. Food was excellent although portions a bit big. We had cheese and leek crisps in sherry and an Iberian salad to start which were delicious, then shared a main of lobster, shrimps and crab with rice when was excellent and more than enough for two. Only criticism was... More

We had a really good tapas dinner here. The intention had been to do a 'tape' around a few places, but this was good enough that we didn't move. Bustling and full of a range of ages, locals and tourists. We couldn't believe the bill when we got it - much lower than other places we'd be to in Andalucia.
