My best friends grew up in Cadiz and took me there when I said ' I want proper fish'. And in deed I have not eaten fish that fresh and tasty ever. Along with the fish we ordered some tapas such as papas alinas which...were delicious too. I highly recommend to book other wise you will not get a space. People keep on queuing up there. Prices are more than reasonable and service is fast, as anywhere in Cadiz :) You sit inside a small street which gives you the 'Southern Europe' feeling you are searching for on your holiday. Loud, vibrant, good mood are the three terms I'd use to describe the atmosphere. This is a must for Cadiz visitorsMore

I love this restaurant. The food is great and the price is extremely reasonable. Even though the waiters are really busy, they are very friendly and welcoming.

We were recommended this restaurant by our friendly apartment manager and we popped in without a reservation. They found us a space, but it was full. And with reason. Delicious food, with local specialties such as mackerel. And very reasonably priced. We ordered on recommendation...papas Aliñas, tortitas de camarones, mojama de atun (thin slices of smoked tuna), croquetas caseras, the mackerel and pan fried chipirones (octopus tail). One word: delicious and very well priced.More

We discovered this place which is a little out of the tourist area and more frequented by locals in the know. Came here twice as we enjoyed it so much and if and when we come back to Cádiz will definitely come back. Loved the...seating outside and the relaxed style.More

We were staying in Cadiz for 4 days very near to this restaurant so decided to give it a try as it was always busy. We were not disappointed and went again on our last night. Can recommend the Sole, Cooked to perfection and the...grilled prawns were lovely. We had eaten lots of tapas so this was a nice changeMore

Within 50 metres of our accommodation at Dormir in Cadiz, it was a natural choice to settle in to the spirit of Cadiz on our first night. It was busy but we were found a table and given good service. After a fishy lunch and...more fishy starters I couldn't resist the oxtail; just balanced out the whole day. still not viewed the Rick Stein! Good quality food. well prepared in a suitably atmospheric location.More

Recommended by Rick Stein from his long weekend in Cadiz. We were not disappointed and área was packed in a very short time. We had Mackeral with piriñacas which was delicious. Seafood plentiful in Cadiz, a must try.

Followed (like many others) in Rick Stein's "Long Weekend" footsteps to Cadiz but we made it a two centre holiday - Seville and Cadiz - flying directly to Seville with EasyJet from Bristol. Easy. Then Cadiz is just 1hr 20mins drive from Seville. Whilst in...Cadiz (at The Hotel Playa Victoria) we booked a table at this restaurant which is located in the Old City. A short Uber ride from the hotel for around 7 euros. They don't open until 9pm so its a bit late but all part of the experience. Get there earlier and add your name to "the list". It gets really busy but the food is great and the service efficient. I had the mackerel for just 6 euros. Fresh (bony) and delicious. Well worth a visit.More

Seems trip advisor popularity may have had a negative effect on this restaurant, tourists swarm through the streets at just before opening time to grab a table. Service a bit chaotic, Clams to start then the charred green peppers where excellent the sardines one the...other hand were dry and tasteless, I eat sardines a lot in Portugal so I know how they should taste! Wife had the sea bass and again not cooked very well. We waited a long time for our main courses and this my have been the reason ? Don’t think we’ll go back, I’m sure there’s better places to be foundMore

Great fresh food simple but so well done, gets busy after 8pm but well worth the wait in the bar next door until your table is ready.

I have been couple of times there. This is an open air tavern. It has tables only outside. They have a small kitchen but not tables inside at all. So when it is too cold or rainy season to sit outside it is not open.

Fairly close, maybe 15 minutes walking? the entire centre of Cadiz is close to the docks, I've seen a lot of turists from cruises walking around the town.
