El Faro de Cadiz is located in the traditional neighborhood of "La Viña", where Gonzalo Cordoba started with a small bar decorated as a sailor tavern, with nets and fishing stuff, with few wooden benches and tables. The customers came in search of the famous fried fish, called "pescaito frito" daily carried by fishermen of "caleta" beach. His daily concern and desire to excel led him to transform the local expanding and providing modern facilities.

El Faro Cadiz is still committed to the tradition to move forward and offer the best

Great food for pretty affordable prices given this is one of the most expensive places in Cadiz. The service is friendly but detached when serving wine/changing cutlery. Still, a very good experience mostly on price/quality terms
