“Great food,”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

The owner is a superb salesman, that said we had an absolutely delightful meal, every course was enjoyable and subtle, wine and sherry good value and good quality

... we both think this was the best meal of our three week stay in Spain. If you want to sit outside you have to put up with the traffic but you enjoy a great sunset. Happily recommend to anyone.

“Great Food and an Outstanding View”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

We went here for a nice dinner. The server did a fantastic job and her English was decent. My wife and I shared an avocado salad that had smoked salmon and goat cheese in it, with dressing that had a sweet mango taste, delicious. I had "la pluma" which was pork with goat cheese and caramelized onions on top. My plate came with french fries as well. Eaten individually, each item tasted odd, but eaten all at once it was very tasty. My wife had the salmon which came with pasta. She thoroughly enjoyed her salmon, but did not like the sauce on the pasta because it had a bitter taste. They gave her another side of plain pasta instead. For dessert, I had a brownie with toffee ice cream and banana. My wife had the cheese cake with strawberries. Both were amazing. We also split a bottle of wine. There was outdoor seating, but we chose to sit inside because it was breezy. The view was beautiful and the service was perfect!
All of this cost 60 Euros.

“Good Restaurant By The Beach”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

The restaurant has a varied menu with many fish dishes but also meat. The service was polite and the food was good and served promptly. There is an excellent choice of wines. The view as the sun set over the sea was amazing. The restaurant is about a 25 minute walk from the old town of Cadiz.

“Fantastic food”
Reviewed March 28, 2014 via mobile

The food at La Despensa is superb and the staff could not be more helpful. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. Everything is fresh .For wine buffs the wine menu leaves nothing to be desired.

“Wonderful lunch by the Atlantic”
Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

Tasty seafood and copious salads. And it wasn't with iceberg lettuce! This is a clean restaurant with ceramic wall decor. We sat on the terrace on a sunny February afternoon sharing a pitcher of Sangria. The view of the beach and Cádiz Cathedral on the horizon is breathtaking. Will definitely return.
