An authentic tapas bar and restaurant in a great location. An impressive tapas menu (eat in the bar) and a full menu in the more formal dining area. Friendly and helpful staff. A great choice of tapas, wines and beers at very reasonable prices. If I could transport this bar back home I would be a... read more

Nice restaurant with Spanish atmosphere. Very good food and wine. Unfortunately, poor Serving staff, uninspired and served not the food, but threw the food to us at the table. With nicer staff this restaurant had been a gem

Bar and restaurant, just off Plaza de Mina that's always busy with locals and tourists. Has a small restaurant area for "racions" and "tapas" portions served at the bar. Food is very good quality, typically Spanish, and consistent. Service was also very good. We visited twice; once in the restaurant and once at the stool tables outside. Portions are big... More

Sometimes in these very real, authentic places where all the locals eat the staff can be a bit stuffy with out of towners, but here they are extremely welcoming and friendly. The albóndigas are the best I've found in Cádiz and they have a huge selection of cuts of pork, from cheek, tongue, neck, shoulder - too many to mention.... More

Just returned from an 11-day trip through Andalucia - we ate very well all along, but grazing on the amazing tapas at Meson Cumbres Mayores was our favorite meal of the trip. Food was outstanding and our waiter/bartender was not grumpy at all! Definitely try the Secreto Iberico - delicious. This place is atmospheric with dozens of jamones hanging from... More

This was our second visit in 2 years and it was like coming back a day later. Nothing had changed even down to the slightly grumpy waiters. But, don't be put off - the food and drink in an authentic Cadiz bar is worth a visit. We ate the Surtido Especial de la Casa- something I normally avoid - but... More

I have read other reviews and agree that the tapas was good this evening. However, for me, I found the waiters very unfriendly (even though I speak Spanish), the service was extremely slow (and it was a very quiet evening, with plenty of staff not doing anything)! So all in all I personally won't be returning as there are so... More

A fantastic restaurant and taperia in the heart of the old town of Cadiz. The food is great value, fresh and fast service with an authentic atmosphere to match. Drinks are very reasonable also. They also have the best olives in Spain! Be sure to try the diablios (dates and bacon), the secreto iberico carbonara and the mixed bereneja pista... More

This is one of our favourite bar restaurants in the old city in Cadiz. Every time we return we book our first meal here. We love the bar and restaurant staff since we've been coming for over 14 years! The traditional decor has Iberian Jamon legs hanging from the ceiling, a large bar with a few tables and the restaurant... More
