We caught the ferry from Cadiz - enjoyable but busy - and found ourselves in the lovely port of Santa Maria just in time for lunch. We stayed in the old town, following advice from the TI and headed towards the restaurant area. La Bodeguilla offered a four course menu for for 12+euros... read more

They offer a lot of dishes cuisine nouvelle (modern cuisine). The problem is that you like it or you don‘t, and we didn‘t really appreciate it. For us it‘s a SABENA (such a bad experience never again), especially when you have all over nearby full of traditional tasty cuisine offered at even a better price/quality ratio.

This is one of our favourite Tapas Bars in amongst the plethora in El Puerto. Modern dishes are served freshly prepared and with great flavour. You can always find something a bit different on the menu and it will suit all tastes. As usual great value and a nice spot to sit and watch the world go by on a... More

We had a dinner in this lovely place in the heart of El Puerto de Santa Maria. A vegetarian salad was organized even though they did not have it on the menu. My boyfriend ate a gourmet meatball. If you like white wine, I recommend: Entrechuelos, Chardonnay, fresh and perfect taste. As dessert we took a homemade cheese cake. It... More

I have mistakenly pressed the wrong button before and gave a rating of 1 instead of 5 which is the deserved one. Friendly and professional staff with originally and well presented top quality food. I must recommend the squid in its ink on a bed of saffron and red pepper sponge. All in all, a delightful experience!

We went as a table of 5 and were given the English menu, when it came to ordering the waitress was struggling to match our order up with the Spanish menu, which resulted in only 2of us getting what we ordered .my Wife who...

We enjoyed some lovely tapas with a twist. For example mini Kobe burger with cheese ice cream. Waiting staff very helpful and menus are both in Spanish and English.

The service here is very friendly, and the menu is authentic. I was taken here on the night of my arrival to the area by my new employers so it will always be a special place for me - and more importantly you know its good if the locals show you there! Of course the ham must be tried (it's... More

This place was buzzing every night both inside and out. The staff were unfailingly helpful and happy to provide recommendations and took the time to describe dishes and to provide a menu in English. Delicious tapas and sherry. All in all a perfect night out in Spain. Highly recommended.
