If you are visiting Cadiz, please you do not forget this restaurant. If you are looking for tapas, sit down in the bar area, otherwise they will give you a menu with main courses. Enjoy the traditional and different tapas. The people is nice and they will try to help you and explain you the different tapas as they did... More

Discovered this beauty walking along the cost of Cadiz. The service was excellent and the appetizer of shrimp and clams and meal of prime rib steak was outstanding.

We were most impressed by this restaurant. We chose from a very good menu and our meal was excellent. The service and atmosphere were also first-class. We can thoroughly recommend a meal there if you are in staying in Cadiz

We should have known we were in the wrong place for a good quality Spanish dinner when we saw the night club decor. Unfortunately, we entered anyway. The service is ok, but the food is actually awful.

Book for weekend nights, it's very popular with the locals and trust me, when you eat here you can see why. Lovely smaller quieter dining room upstairs or larger & lively downstairs, but wherever you eat it, it's wonderful food. Friendly, helpful staff, who'll advise you if you want them to. Was recommended this place by a Spanish guy on... More

Our hotel recommended this place and it did not disappoint , there is a choice of the tapa bar or a sit down meal. We chose the sit down, and it was lovely food with swift friendly service. It's a very comfortable modern decorated restaurant which I would highly recommend, also great value

We came here on the recommendation of our hotel to sit at the bar and enjoy fish tapas. Excellent choice.

It was nice but when every taxi driver, local and random person mentions this place as their top choice I expect a lot. And it didn't deliver. Our sever, while nice, couldn't even make proper regional recommendations on food or wine. Maybe go for tapas and not full restaurant and you'll have a better experience.

We had the restaurant recommended and we could see why. We were impressed by the variety of dishes on the menu. We both enjoyed our meals, which were also reasonably priced. For dessert we shared the brownie, which was the best I have had in years.
