The best place for some plates in Cadiz, great atmosphere. Not cheap, but very fair prices. Locals and tourists come and go, it's very busy, a must in Cadiz. Service is very good, food is made with much love and with quality products. They have tables inside, you can sit at the bar where you can get tapas or small... More

The place is incredible, local charm and style, friendly and helpful staff even if your Spanish is limited.. Had tapas and was among locals, probably the only non Spanish speaker which made the experience even better! Absolutely great!!!! I am talking about the bar area and the tapas not the resto section though

Very good place for tapas with hams hanging everywhere. The waiters are all fat and funny and I love their flamenquitos and everything else. All the times that I go to Cadiz I come to this place and I love it so much.

If you enter in a tapas bar and looking the seiling you see jamon hanging, probably, you are in the right place. You have a very large tapas choice and you are tired about tapas you can sit in the nice restaurant. Very nice experience.

The tapas menu in this bar is excellent, but not a lot of fish. The bar staff try very hard and the singing is great!! Would highly recommend for a tapas meal.

Read the reviews of this place before calling in and was not disappointed. Very friendly waiters who were kept busy as bar was full. Had 3 tapas dishes 2 sherries and 2 glasses of wine for 18 euros excellent value. A must if you are in Cadiz. Great atmosphere. Loved the hams hanging fro the ceiling.....

This place had a fantastic trattoria-esque atmosphere. We enjoyed our food greatly and the service was good. The large plates we ordered were pricey but delicious--we ended up about 15 €/person with sodas.

Tucked away on Calle Zorilla, the restaurant is fringed by hanging pork legs giving it a rustic, authentic feel. Those pork joints transform into the most beautiful cuts of jamon iberico, serrano and chorizo. I could sit there all day just eating those. The waiters - whilst rushed - are quite attentive and very friendly and authoritative. Go. Order the... More

This Restaurant has been going for so long it has not felt the need to innovate. The food appears to be the same that they have been providing for years, traditional Andalusia fayre, but they have got lazy. The portions are large but stodgy, with much of any subtle taste destroyed by heavy-handed cooking. This is food that will lay... More
