We came to eat here on our first night in Cadiz, and returned on our second. We've rarely seen such a bustling and busy restaurant...when you arrive, find Jesus with his clipboard and put your name on his list...then repair to the bar El Antiquario for a cana and a crispy tortilla de camerones while you wait. Jesus will come... More

Been here many times on nice relaxing dinner of summer when the restaurants of the La Viña side of Cádiz get more popular. Every people go here to eat the typical "Caballa" a grilled fish. Never got a bad experience. I recommend this place.

We had a delightful dinner here - lovely courtyard setting. Amazing fresh seafood on offer. Staff were very friendly (but also very busy as the night went on so a slightly relaxed attitude is a must!) portions were huge - half portions offered on most dishes and were plenty if ordering a tapas style mixture. Nice local feel to the... More

We had investigated the place as part of a wander around town. We were not disappointed. It was a truly authentic taberna with really tasty and well served seafood. No airs and graces just honest, well served fresh seafood. Another one for a return visit in the future!

We have been to Taberna El Tio de La Tiza 1 day ago. It is located in the city center on a small and typical andalusian street with flowers on the walls. Staff was very friendly and helpful, as well as they don't speak English, they have English and French menus. (English is not a problem at all in Andalusia... More

On the positive note firstly: the location is great. A very attractively lit courtyard square, which felt lively and was perfect for people watching as families and couples meandered along between the taberna's entrance and the busy tables. Sorry to report, but that was the start of a poor restaurant experience. It was more than half an hour after we... More

I stayed in Cadiz for 3 days and had lunch here several times, it was so good to sit under the sun, eat fresh seafood, first of all softest pulpo a la gallega - and have a glass of jerez in the end. Very friendly staff, changing menu, in the center of walking routs of Cadiz.

We stayed here with friends from Seville, had fantastic tapas. The adobos were fantastic as were the fried fish. Although we had mostly seafood , the meatballs were also superb.
