Good, honest local food

Just had a simple salad and grilled peppers, followed by mackerel. All was delicious and fresh, with a good glass of wine. Arrived around 8.30 pm when the tables were just starting to fill up. It got very busy soon after 9pm, great atmosphere. I would be happy to eat here again tomorrow night... read more

We ate twice here, on a Thursday and Saturday. Guess what , we adored the food on Thursday, especially the fresh seafood and the attentive waiter! On Saturday the opposite, too many tables and stress all around. The food was prepared with much less care ( we could compAre as we ordered one dish, langoustines, on both days) and that... More

We chose this restaurant as the seating was outdoor and the customers mainly spanish. Service was good and friendly, fried anchovies and fried peppers delicious but hake in batter disgusting and special of the day oxtail undercooked so almost impossible to get the meat off the bones.

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
