We went to Cadiz just for half day and our local friends recommended to try this restaurant. We came at the lunch time, it was pretty packed and all the tables were taken. We had to wait some time for the table. Location of the place is nice - not on the beach, but very close to (~100 meters). Seafood... More

The portion size is arguable to big, however I am not complaining about that! The Price of the Food is also great. We always leave thinking we might have... More

Lovely freshly made salads , large portions so don't over order. Great meat and fish dishes , good wines by the glass. Great atmosphere,always busy. Restaurant different menu ,and tapas around the bar... More

Five years ago we dined in Balandro and the experience was still very fresh in our minds. We decided to go back but feared that the second time would excite us less. Not so. This is the best fine-dinning place in Cadiz. There are some other fine restaurants in Cadiz but those cater mostly to tourists. In Balandro you find... More

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
