Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

This place seems to turn up in many photos of Cádiz, and having visited it is easy to see why. A small bar, with some food dishes, but we only came for a glass of Jerez. We would have been spoilt for choice, had they not had our particular favourite of Pedro Ximenez. Huge oak barrels that have been kept full of various sherries since the 1930s. Family run, and very friendly staff. The PX was delicious, sweet, smooth and syrupy.... maybe not everyone’s taste, but if it is to your liking...go for it. If not, there are loads of alternatives!

Very good bar to taste all that sherry has to offer with prices from €1.20 a glass this is a good bar to discover the different types of sherry available.
Recommended but allow enough time to try some of the sherries available.

Visited this sherry bar having been to a sherry producer for a tour earlier in the day. It is very authentic with Manzanilla sherries as well as others across the sherry universe. Unfortunately the man behind the bar was unwelcoming to the point of being rude, with us trying several times to catch his attention to order. When we did it was cheerless and without any smile or comment. Maybe it was just him having a bad day, but a better reception would have made us stay longer.

For a city as small as Cadiz, this bar manages to be quite far from the tourist areas. We visited in the evening and were presented with a list of sherries in order of increasing sweetness. The barman had good english and explained that, if we wanted to taste a range of sherries, it was important to start with the dry fino versions first, leaving the sweet sherries to the end. All the sherry comes from the large casks you see in the photos. He gave us descriptions of each and asked what sort of taste we liked before making suggestions. I followed his advice and worked my way through fino, oloroso, cream and, finally, pedro ximinez. He mixed the cream sherry in front of us. This was a great way to spend a couple of hours. The bar wasn't too busy and the staff always had time to talk about the sherries.

This is what Cadiz is all about Sherry tasting in this old original bar is not to be missed. We , like others, did not know that it shut at 3.30 pm. and opens at 7pm. So, make sure you give yourself time to try the full range.
