Vegetarian Heaven in Cadiz

The tapas bars feature beef, chicken and pork offerings as well as octopus/pulpo and pescado frito/fried fish dishes. However, those vegetarians visiting Cadiz Old Town will... read more

Spain isn't the easiest place to get Gluten Free or vegetarian food but this place had everything clearly marked. They even had GF bread! Lovely gazpacho, salads, patatas, aubergine.... Friendly staff and great spot to sit in the shade and refuel. Will definitely return to Cadiz and will frequent La Cueva everyday.

We had delicious, vegetarian tapas and a few with meat as well. The food was all very good, flavorful, and a nice change from the typical Spanish tapas covered with ham. The staff were friendly even though the place was quite busy since it was Carnival time. I would go again.

The staff we had were really good, very attentive, funny and flexible. We had tapas and a couple of glasses of local wine. All was good and chilled. The broad bean hummus was particularly good, wonderful seasoning. It was a barmy evening and it was all perfect.

Very unfriendly staff. We are strict vegetarians. Although we told the waiter, half of our food came with bacon. When we claimed that he became very unpleasent and started arguing. It was very obvious that he didn't even listen when we ordered the food. Can't comprehend all the positive reviews. Either the staff has changed or the restaurant has lots... More

Delicious vegetarian tapas. I would recommend it to anyone wanting a change from the typical Spanish tapas of meat, seafood and bread. Great friendly service as well

Really nice veggie restaurant. But also a few good 'meat' choices. It has been said before but i say it again, you should really try the hummus!

In my 6 days stay in Cadiz, La Cueva became my favourite eating spot with its delicious Tapas such as Hummus, Patatas con Queso, Tajin Kefta.. The place is so humble and cute, the prices are so fair , and the staff were so friendly and great!! Muchas Gracias La Cueva for everything..

My partner and I are big fans of Spain in general, but we have one repeated gripe - lack of vegetarian options when it comes to places to eat! Normally this leads us to go self catering, but due to having to budget this year, we went for B&B. We were loving Cadiz but again found it a bit tricky... More

Fantastic option for vegans and vegetarians fed up with bread and potatoes! Spain is not easy for vegetarians but this place surely made me a very happy camper! Keep up the good work guys! Cojonudo!
