Very, Local Happening Spot!

My husband and I wanted something special for our last night in Cadiz this trip. Nothing fancy, but down home and good, local cuisine. Meson Cumbres Mayores was great (but we did order too much food). The portions were huge and delicious from a plate of baby artichokes with ham to oxtail stew. And... read more

We had a business dinner and the restaurant handled very well the 20 of us. We got a nice own room with a long table. Tapas is not the strongest point they have. I make a better tortilla de patata and I'm from Finland. But boy, the main dishes. Big and tasty. The chef is strong with salt, but I... More

I stayed in Cadiz for one month and this became a bit of a local lunch spot for me! Everything about this place is amazing. Value for money, flavour and atmosphere. Definitely a must try!

We tried this restaurant having been told that it specialised in meat dishes. The service was poor - "couldn't care less", the wine was poor and overpriced and the meat dish when it finally arrived was awful. Don't try the albondigas!

This place is quite good for meats, especially pork but also beef.Portions are large, and the side potatoes great. The decor is quite traditional, with hanging hams (you can buy them). Waiters are genarally (but not always) friendly.

Very friendly staff. Great selection of tapas & raciones using local food & dishes. Everything is good especially the stews. A good selection of jamon serrano for sale. A must at the end of the meal is the chocolate mousse.

We received a recommendation to try this place by our airbnb host as the best place to come and try pork and beef dishes. It really is a great steakhouse type restaurant. Full of locals the night we went, all having a good time. Service is very attentive and kind to the Spanish language-impaired as we were. Meat grilled to... More

First, let me say that the food we had was excellent and would normally warrant five stars, but the service...! Because my wife is recovering from knee replacement surgery, she didn't fancy sitting on a high stool in the tapas section, so we opted for lunch in the restaurant. That was when we encountered probably the surliest, grumpiest waiter we... More

We wanted to have a tapas dinner sitting outside, but it was only allowed inside at the bar. The waiter ,who initially was quite welcoming, soon abandoned us when he realized we didn't want to "dine". The tapas were nothing special , the service minimal and we left soon to test another address . We suspect they are living off... More

This is a lively tapas bar with a fantastic choice of food, the pork cheek was delicious. The restaurant at the back looked like it was delivering some top dishes too.The 'grumpy' bar man is a star! Definitely going again.
