We had a really good tapas dinner here. The intention had been to do a 'tape' around a few places, but this was good enough that we didn't move. Bustling and full of a range of ages, locals and tourists. We couldn't believe the bill when we got it - much lower than other places we'd be to in Andalucia.

31 May. Reservation made based on hotel recommendation. Waiter was dreadful. No knowledge of wine or food. Not remotely interested in making recommendations or suggesting local specialities. Slapped food on the table. Spilt soy sauce that came with Sashimi starter on the table. No effort to clean it up! Cold starters brought out before wine even chosen! Tried to take starter plates away before we even finished them! Unbelievable experience. Food was fine but service, atmosphere and experience were the worst experienced in Cadiz.

Having eaten in Balandro last year, we were really looking forward to going there again!! How a year can change an opinion!!! Cold indifferent service by a very unfriendly lady set the tone for the evening.... We asked for her recommendations from the Bar Menu (tapas) and were told that she "didn't know' half the dishes we ordered were unavailable and the first four wines we chose were also "off". Food was very disappointing and we will not be rushing back to this restaurant.

We sat at a table - the bar eating experience may be different. Food was good - with lots of fish choices - but portions ridiculously large and therefore the bill was much bigger than we expected. Price per kilo is probably fine but we couldn't finish what we ordered. So I'd recommend one starter per two people and one main per two people. The waiters should have told us we were ordering too much (and for the record, we each ordered one starter and one main).

Booked a table here during Semana Santa.Food was good but the service was cold and frosty and far too quick .Our main courses arrived and were just plonked on the table while my wife was in the middle of her starter!!Staff seemed to be more concerned with clearing and reselling tables than in the diners' comfort.
