Went there following my girlfriend's father suggestion and i have to admit it was worth to try. Had delicious 'salmoretes', sea food all in vary familiar atmosphere. Stuff really friendly. If you're around just try it you won't regret ;)

A local guide, Ramon directed us here. We had a late lunch, well 4pm! We ordered gazpacho, meat croquettes, tuna steak and a mixed salad. The croquettes were super meaty and melt in the mouth. The tuna was seasoned perfectly and huge! You can see the seafood in the fridge before choosing too. This was all washed down with sangria... More

had a lovely fish lunch at this restaurant. The potato salad was the best potato dish I have ever had! all the fish was delicious and tasted very fresh. If I had been in Cadiz longer I would certainly have visited again.

We have eaten out in Cadiz a lot and maintain that there are other restaurants in the area which are just as good food-wise, but which have much better service. It is sad to see people waiting in line just to be treated rather badly by the over-worked waiters, when there are other good restaurants just round the corner! This... More

The trick is with this restaurant is to get there early. If you arrive late, the place fills up and you'll waiting for a table. Lovely outdoor setting in a small square - Plaza El Tio de la Tiza - the tables fill the courtyard. The staff are rushed off their feet bringing out hundreds of plates of great seafood... More

Visiting Cadiz we were looking for a place to have fish and we certainly found the right place for that. We tried several different types that we shared. The shark was very tasteful.

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
