Typical spanish food and some home cooking type dishes, decent portions and very good prices. Service was very good. Can eat at the bar or have a sit down meal. The actual restaurant has lots of history with regards to Flamenco artists, and is still...frequented by some regularly, you may be lucky to see someone there as we were. It appears to be a spanish patio converted, and I would suggest before you sit down to eat to take a walk around and look at the photos and memorabilia on display, after you eat you probably wont be able to get up! I would go back here.More
I first went there over 50 years ago on a visit to San Fernando (La Isla) and have returned many times since. This is a place for what might be called "typical" food from this area and always of the highest quality. The service is...always impeccable. This is also the best place to see memorabilia dedicated to Cameron de la Isla as well as other flamanco performers.More
Our starters and main course were delicious, however, the desert was disappointing and synthetic tasting.
This is definitely not the place for a couple as the portion sizes are HUGE and therefor you can’t try much of a variety of dishes.
Our server was very...unfriendly, and didn’t give us much advice on what to order. When we asked about the possibility of half portion sizes he flatly refused.
Overall, Not bad.More
We have been there dozens of times in more than 25 years. It has succeeded in keeping the same typical atmosphere and the same top quality in traditional local food. Do not ask for sophistications or "new cuisine". But if you want to taste good...fish and tradicional homemade andalousian cuisine, this is the place in San Fernando. We recommend having tapas at the bar, but service in the restaurant is excellent and not expensive. In the bar you can eat rather well by 20 euros per couple. In the restaurant price is about double if you go for a bottle of wine and grilled fish. They have good private rooms for special celebrations.More
Often referred as the best place in town by locals, though not ideally located. Nevertheless, I would recommend it to anyone visiting this area. Not especially for its food, which I would rate only a little bit beyond average (although 'tortillita de camarones' is said...to be the best in Spain), but for the underlying piece of history (the great Camaron de la Isla, master of flamenco song, used to hang around).More
This place is a no brainer if you want an excellent meal in San Fernando. La Venta de Vargas also happens to be the place where Camaron de La Isla got his start to become the most important Flamenco singer of the past 50 years....Apart from all the wonderful food the service is very professional.More
