“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

On the positive note firstly: the location is great. A very attractively lit courtyard square, which felt lively and was perfect for people watching as families and couples meandered along between the taberna's entrance and the busy tables. Sorry to report, but that was the start of a poor restaurant experience. It was more than half an hour after we were seated that someone took our order and even longer before the food arrived. Two out of four of our group were served food they hadn't ordered, a third order was incomplete. The food was greasy and I'm afraid, mostly inedible. The waiters were the most bizarre I've ever come across. They weren't rude, they didn't rush us, but they were totally disengaged. They didn't care about us, or any other customers. We wished we'd just stuck to an aperitif and eaten elsewhere.

“Best lunch under the sky of Cadiz”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

I stayed in Cadiz for 3 days and had lunch here several times, it was so good to sit under the sun, eat fresh seafood, first of all softest pulpo a la gallega - and have a glass of jerez in the end. Very friendly staff, changing menu, in the center of walking routs of Cadiz.

“Cracking seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We stayed here with friends from Seville, had fantastic tapas.

The adobos were fantastic as were the fried fish. Although we had mostly seafood , the meatballs were also superb.

“Great seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

We simply had the best seafood ever! Lovely square in the heart of cadiz .the dorade was the best fish i had for a very long time and all the rest was fantastic.
We had a dozen of gambas, seafood croquettas, half a kilo of clams and a whole dorade with a bottle of wine , all this for 45 euros, absolutely great!!
Definitely worst the price! Go there and you wont be disappointed!
