If you want a good seafood restaurant but not in a plaza this is for you. We shared Pimientos de Padron, Ensalada Mixta, Croquetas and the best Almajas de Marinara I've had on this trip. It was good to eat here and watch the locals collect their takeaway food. We will come back here again!

Supper here last night was very good. Seafood dishes excellent and service friendly and quick. Not the easiest place to find but well worth it. You must either book or turn up early They start serving at 20.30 and by 21.15 there is not a table to be had.

The food was good, simple and tasty but the portions were huge, I'm a big Welsh lad and I struggled to finish mine, I was starting to get used to 8 slices of ham for starter but this place gave about 20, the main was pork chops and chips, I think there was 7 chops on a bed of chips.... More

Great seafood spot in Cadiz, perfect for people who like to dine al fresco . Worth going back to twice same week ! The fish is fresh, staff is accommodating and professional. Highlight is definitely the clams mariniere, mackrel, and sea bream. Most of the fish is cooked whole, on the bone which assures rich flavour and freshness. Would definitely... More

Eventually found this tapas bar but too early to eat, so we had a beer and waited for the kitchen to open. Very glad we did: the tortillitas de camarones were hot and crisp, the padron peppers hot and tasty, and the boquerones plentiful and deliciously dressed with garlicky oil and herbs. The square filled rapidly and all the dishes... More

A great place for seafood for very reasonable prices. The little square is a bit hard to find, it is therefore reasonably quite and it has a great location in the sun. We very much liked the caracoles (small snails) and the chocos (sepia).

Suggested by the accomodation host, we found this little gem and what a surprise. The service, the attention to your needs, the food... excellent. We had various tapas and fresh sea bass on the grill. Excellent wine, friendly atmosphere. But be aware, after 8.30 pm, it may be full. We arrived at 8 pm, before the kitchen was open and... More
