Lovely fresh fried fish

Decided to go to this square as we hear it had some freidurias. When we arrived there was no one sitting down and we were told the kitchen would not be open for another twenty minutes. We thought we'd give it a go. We ordered 4 media raciones and this filled us up perfectly. While we were... read more

This is mainly a fish restaurant, the service is excellent, the prices are good for wine and food. It is slightly off the beaten track, but well worth seeking out

This restaurant is not bad, its just that many in the neighbouring streets are a lot better. If sitting in the open, with a menu in English is important, and not being in a crowd is what you are looking for, then this does a pretty decent job. Nothing to complain about in the food, but others have more pzazz.... More

The Plaza was festive with tables of many sizes and a real buzz of people enjoying the night. Very reasonable prices. I... More

The restaurant has tables all around a lovely little plaza..very nice place in the old part of Cadiz. The food - seafood primary - is amazing: simple and fresh. The wine is good and the price very reasonable! Definitely recommended, but I suggest to book in advance, it seemed really busy.

We were put in a waitinglist for 20 minutes but it was well worth it! Busy restaurant with very fresh and tasty food. We will go back again before we go home to Sweden.

It was very difficult to get a sit (we had to wait for almost 80 minutes). Full of tourists, so no "local" flavor. The staff looked very tired and busy. The food was ok, but I've eaten so much better in Cadiz.

My wife and I and another couple were visiting Cadiz for a day trip from Seville, and wandering around the small streets we found this restaurant and decided to stay for lunch. A very good choice – friendly staff eager to make sure that we were happy, yet not fawning over us. The food portions were generous and very tasty,... More
