In a tipical square we have eaten a very good dinner. Mussels very fresh and good. Also the daily pescado well cooked. The hosts rapid, gentle and the menu is available in more languages. One of the most tasty and appreciated dinner.

The place gets really busy. It's best to show up for dinner at about 8pm or even earlier. Otherwise you might end up wairing for a table for over an hour (worth it though). Food is amazing, cheap (you gotta try the caballas) and service quite fast considering the are serving more than 100 people at any given time

La plaza del tío la Tiza is one of those places that you need to go when visiting Cadiz. It's probably one of the oldest places in town that still serves the best local fish (caballas, robalos, lenguas, atún. And manY more) Like everything in Cadiz... You need to take things easy. It is tremendously busy, which it is a... More

It is kind of touristic attraction (LP listing) with waiting lines for the table. Basically it is generic fast food without a remarkable dish. Too busy, not our cup of coffee, but nice atmosphere at pleasant square.

This place was amazing: great location on a secluded square with outdoor seating, lively atmosphere (can get pretty busy during peak times), however the best thing about it was the food - fresh fish generously portioned & reasonably priced, with delicious accompanying wine. The service can get slightly brusque sometimes but as it's such a popular place the waiters can... More

It was recommended to us by the hotel reception and i think this is the best advice anyone ever gave me during my trips. Excellent food, fresh and diversified. The wine list is also rich and very tasty. To avoid ruining your experience, expect a long waiting time (or reserve before) as well as an average service.

A very busy square that is off the beaten track. Recommended originally by our hotel. We were given a great table even though it was 9.45 pm. We made our order and sat and watched the street theatre the waiters created shuffling people into tables, bringing out the food, working extremely hard but adding to a great atmosphere. We sampled... More
