“1st class tapas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

A nicely decorated ... not too modern, not too traditional venu for a delightful array of tapas.Among the offerings, most outstanding was the alcachofa con jamon and a very taste empanadilla rabo. Tastily presented was the queso manchego with a dribble of olive oil. It was well worth going to and for 17 euros for two with 4 tapas, a glass of wine each and water a delightful light dinner.

“Amazing tapas in a lovely modern bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

This tapas bar is situated in the heart of Cadiz near the flower market and shopping centre. It's modern with traditional touches like beautiful tiles and wood. Great wine selection and amazing tapas, which we saw prepared by the lovely chef. Tapas were both traditional and modern. Tortillitas camarones were crisp and delicious. Cheese ravioli freshly made and yummy. Fried cheese with whipped cream and raspberry sauce sounds vile but worked well. We are staying in Cadiz for several weeks. This is the best tapas we've had so far and we'll definitely be back.

“Good but nothing special”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

This tapas bar is ok. Prices are good (2€ for a tapas) but the food is not exceptionnel. Sometimes it's looks like coming from the microwaves :/
Add a bit of music and the atmosphere could be better too
