We had dinner here on Spain’s National Day and it was ver nice. There is a bar area which was full after 9 pm, exclusively locals and clearly it was a popular haunt.
We sat in the restaurant area which filled up quickly, also with locals. We shared a starter of salmon sashimi which was excellent, served with ginger and soy sauce, but not wasabi.
For the mains, I had a steak which was excellent and my wife had pasta which was average.
Wine was good as it seems to be everywhere in Spain.
We shared an excellent cheesecake for dessert.
Service was quick and very pleasant.
Very good dinner thank you.

Super food and very good service. Watch out for the portion sizes as the starters can be substantial, not that I'm complaining, but one could be shared if you wished.

The downstairs is more charismatic than up and I think that booking is vital.

Excellent food and very friendly staff. We tried different tapas me the cod fish and every single meal was a great experience. In addition they were offering to warm up the food for our little one.

We were recommended this restaurant by a Spanish friend and it didn't disappoint- what we had was of excellent quality and delicious. Starters are more for sharing, so beware and don't order too much. We had tortillas de camarones, croquetas and pulpo. All exceptional. For mains we had the arroz con bogavante and cod with pil pil. Service good, Bill reasonable for what we had. Will definitely return to Balandro when we are next in Cadiz.

A place we've visited before, that sells a good selection of tapas and main plates.
The actual restaurant is pretty pricey but the tapas is good value. You do have to sit by the bar though and if there aren't enough seats you'll have to stand while you eat.
The service is prompt and efficient and there are menus in different languages. Worth a visit
