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.

The waiters - whilst rushed - are quite attentive and very friendly and authoritative. Go. Order the... More

The portions are large but stodgy, with much of any subtle taste destroyed by heavy-handed cooking. This is food that will lay... More

We rode the 2 bus for 30 minutes to the residential area of town South by Barcelona Hotel, thinking there would be lots of restaurants for tapas. We were wrong. Then it began to rain. Giving up, we got on the 1 bus, and met a friendly young girl.. we must have looked (wet) and hungry. She offered help, and... More

This restaurant is one of my absolute favorites in Cádiz. Typical andaluz. The food is more than amazing and the atmosphere unique. Really unique. The staff is really nice.

Went there for lunch , and it was well worth the visit! Very tasty tapas, fantastic quality and quantity. We had 3 tapas, bread and olives, 2 bottled water, all for 13 euros. Staff were very friendly. We had to stand at the bar, but that was okay, that's where the atmosphere was. Too windy to sit outside. Great place.... More

The Diablillos (bacon wrapped dates) and the parmesean encrusted wild boar were exceptional. The atmosphere and service were great.

If you visit only one tapas bar in Cadiz this must be it. Excellent variety of hot and cold tapas at excellent value.Service is friendly and efficient. The place itself oozes atmosphere.But get there early(before 9) if you want a seat
