Found this place round the corner from our accommodation. Always looked busy so we booked & were not disappointed. A couple of tapas to start with followed by the most beautiful piece of swordfish. Went back a second time & had the tuna which was...equally good. Definitely worth a visit & for half the price you’d pay in the UK for a mealMore

Really good tapas, not expensive. Service was good, we had to wait for 15min to get the table but it was worth it.

We visited this restaurant twice last year and had stupendous food each time but poor service once. So we tried again in 2023 and are disappointed to say the service still really disappoints. We booked for 2100h, arrived on time but only got our single...course at 2220h, without the water we ordered. The bill took a long time to come and then payment was also not prompt. There are so many people waiting and watching I felt I was eating under pressure to finish my meal and leave. This is all a fixable organisational problem but until that is done, I think a relaxing evening is more likely elsewhere. Thats a shame as the food is still fantastic.More

Over rated. Slow service, mediocre food. One dish, pork, was served undercooked and raw in places. A food safety issue. The response from the restaurant was just 'oh yes, that isn't cooked'. Couldn't recommend this place to anyone.

We had already received 2 recommendations - one from a friend at home and 1 local - when we spotted this charming restaurant ourselves on our first night in Cadiz. We booked for a special occasion, but there was plenty of walk up business too,...these were diverted to a bar in the same square and were fetched by the Maitre d' when a table came up; it never seemed a long wait. There are about 30 tables along all sides of the charming square. Mainly fish but lots of shellfish, starters, small portions and full portions. Very good and cheap wine list (most expensive bottle 14 euros!) We had shrimp pancakes and fried cuttlefish to start then whole fish as main, possibly the best cooked fish I have ever eaten. We were slightly forgotten after that as tables were turning over quickly so our plates weren't collected for 30 minutes and we eventually had to ask for the bill, with the plates still there. It didn't matter or stress us as we we so happy with our meal. It was excellent value, all in 61 euros for 2 with wine. We are going to give it another go before we leave this charming cityMore

Horrible experience. They take 1 hour to sit you down. Then take 40 minutes to take your order. Then food takes another 40 minutes. Tourists trap. Avoid.

This was listed as temporarily closed in August, but was bustling. Very popular and can be difficult to get a table. The shrimp pancakes are excellent - definitely one of the best we tried in Cadiz. Other than that, it was a bit disappointing. It...is so busy and frenetic that it makes you feel rushed. We waited a really long time for one of our dishes. Saying all day, portions are huge and the restaurant is good value.More

Despite online listings saying this restaurant was closed we visited on Sunday 31/07 and found it open as usual. The food was great as always and the service was fast and the waiter very engaging and pleasant. Give this place a try and you'll come...back again and again.More

Tables around and in a small square and along the small streets leading to it. Busy bustling waiters rush around being cheerful, charming and efficient. We had salad and mackerel. Simple, tasty food cooked perfectly and presented without ceremony. What's not to like?

This was recommended by Rick Stein when filming in Cadiz. There were people queuing at about 8 before restaurant opened at 8.30 You can book at about 8.20 when the staff start to go in. Very popular with good prices and great fish dishes. In...particular try the Tortillitas de camerones which is a local specialityMore

We enjoyed our visit here. Perhaps it'll be better when the weather is warmer, but a lovely atmosphere and very traditional Mediterranean. A few thoughts for those planning a visit. 1. Book in advance. We rang on the day and got in, but a few...people turning up were turned away. The wife speaks Italian and our Spanish isn't great, but we managed to sort it. They didn't respond to my Facebook request. I suspect it may be trickier in high season. 2. Portions are large. A good place if there's a few of you to mix and match, but be aware that your eyes may be bigger than your stomach. I'd suggest focusing on fish dishes rather than the other bits, but each to their own. We did tuna, grilled prawns, anchovies and also padron peppers and salad. Could have definitely lived without the latter two. 3. The wine was OK IMO. Worth trying the sherries. 4. Service. Very friendly and they work very hard. Albeit it is tricky to flag them down. Overall. I'd definitely recommend if you can get a spot. Why a 4 than a 5? Maybe I'm tough, but the food is very good - especially the freshness, but I do think I have had a better overall experience in places like Lisbon and Tuscany. Also, not everything is a five, so I hope I'm being objective in my opinion.More

We were lucky to get a table on a Saturday night during Easter. Walked by around lunchtime - fully booked and exremely vibrant, so we were very happy that they could accomodate a table same evening at 21. The place was packed and people were...lining up to get on a waitinglist for a table - which they would get eventually. In the meantime they could order drinks and enjoy the nice weather. The restaurant exclusively has tables outside, and the whole piazza is just buzzing due to all the people being there and enjoying the great local food. We were 2, and chose 4 different medium sized tapas, and that was perfect. Got the marinated anchovies - so good! If you have a chance, drop by and book a table for outside lunch or dinner.More

We really enjoyed eating at this restaurant while in Cadiz, so much so that we came back a second time for dinner. The ambiance like most restaurants in this area is very casual with only outside seating. The seafood was super fresh, literally you go...to the cooler/fridge outside the restaurant and pick the fish you like. We tried several different kinds of fish, they were grilled and served with either potatoes or salad. We also tried their fried seafood including the cazon en adobo which was delicious and the ortiguillas ('sea nettle'), which is some sort of shell creature that had an interesting texture. The shrimp tortillitas were also good. On our last night there we decided to also try something other than seafood and had the rabo de toro which was really good, with super tender, fall-off-the-bone meat.More
