Genuine Spanish, Great Sherry menu

The Sherry-pairing menu was excellent value, and excellent quality. The service was good and the portions generous.

Got recommended to go here by our hotel owner(casa grande). interesting meal out is the best way to describe it. Situated in an old sherry bodega it is in a huge space. The staff and owners seemed to be struggling to decide what kind of restaurant they want to run. The staff were as annoyingly attentive as if in a... More

I cannot recommend the food here too highly. Considerable thought had been put into the preparation of each dish, each of which involved an explosive combination of flavours. We had two different tasting menus in which sherries were paired with the food, one with five courses, one with six. On the whole, the pairings worked well. The fino was particularly... More

We went on a Monday evening so the restaurant was very quiet. The service was attentive and the food was tasty and well presented- one of the best meals we've had recently in Andalucia. I suppose expensive for Spain but good value because of the exchange rate.

The restaurant is located within an old sherry bodega with the centre piece being an attractive log fire. Two of us had the five course tasting menu accompanied by a different sherry for each course. This was of very high quality and amazing value at 38 euros each. Service was friendly and impeccable and the wines and sherries were very... More

This huge restaurant is in an old Sherry Bodega. We had a variety of dishes, all perfectly cooked, the 1kg enchuleta particularly impressive. They have a wide selection of local wines by the glass and bottle. As other reviewers have noted it expensive for Spain.

A funny mix of fine dining exquisite flavours, sherry, great presentation and steak and chips type meals. Service was great and we were happy we found this place, as overall we were not impressed with Jerez dining options. Or Jerez itself.

Recommended by our hotel (Casa Grande, also excellent) this was the best meal we had in Jerez having tried 4 different restaurants. Yes, it is 1/3 more expensive than other restaurants but it is 3 times better. Huge barn of a place with an open fire in the centre so definitely more atmosphere later on when there are other diners... More

La Carbona was located close to our hotel and highly recommended by Lonely Planet. We arrived when it opened at 8pm which in Spain is far to early, we were the only ones there. Carbona is located in an old Sherry Bodega so it's large. In the centre is a grand fireplace. On the sides of the restaurant are rooms... More
