This was one of the places we visited on a tapas crawl through Sanlucar. We ate standing up at one of the internal shelves although there are tables outside. You place your order inside at the bar - unfortunately we over ordered - but it was all so yummy. There is nothing like well cooked fresh fish. It was all... More

This place is simple but has a lot of atmosphere, serves all types of seafood tapas. Friendly staff, its a self-service, you need to get the food at the bar. Location is nice, its in the plaza. I recommend you to try the "Tortilla de Camarones"

We always go back to Casa Balbino each time we visit Sanlucar. Located on the main square, it has a great terrace where You can seat anc enjoy the tapas and the lively ambiente from the town. No table service, You must order and pay inside.

We went here in 2015 and looked forward to a return visit this year. It is perfectly located in the plaza and ideal for just watching the world go by. You obviously need to do this with a few glasses of chilled manzanilla and the famous frito de camaron which are by far the best I have tried. Snails are... More

If you don't speak a little Spanish you may at busy times struggle to get attention. It's worth it in the end though. Fabulous tapas & the staff though appearing gruff are charm itself once you have scratched the skin of the place.

Busy outside cafe. Self serve. Great prices. The tapas were very good. We were four people and had several wines and beer and six different tapas dishes for E59!

Self service tapas. Very average in my opinion, not friendly or helpful staff. Definitely would not eat here again as much better restaurants close by. Just okay!

Brilliant sherry bar in a lively square in the centre of Sanlucar. We tried 3 sherries and bought a bottle of the sweet Manzanilla too. Great location, lovely atmosphere, helpful staff.
