You can only order tapas sitting at the bar but the whole restaurant menu is available there if you want. We ate in the restaurant and the bar but we preferred the latter. The whole place is hung with Jamons and gets very busy after 9.30pm. The tapa pressa brasa and pincho chorizo were particularly good.

Only had one dish - a half raciones of Iberico Bellota, and it was excellent. Our Airbnb owner recommended this place as great for Jamón. He wasn't wrong. It's quite pricey but worth it.

Now this is a place stuffed with atmosphere of an ancient brewery. Convivial, busy and laden with aromas that whet the appetite. There is no doubt that Huelva jamon is the core attraction here. I love the respect and dedication, nay abstraction, given to the Iberian porker. My grandchild would have exclaimed "delicious".

This is such an friendly restaurant, so good we went 3 times! The Iberian pork is the best you will eat. It comes rare, don't worry about it, this is how it should be. The speciality is the pork, don't bother with the fish. Absolutely charming waiter, who made it so much more special. Tapas is available at the bar... More

7 came as lots of restaurants in Cadiz don't open until 1pm and with 2 hungry kids and grandparents used to regular feeding this was open and had good reviews. It is authentic and there are hanging hams. We asked if we could have tapas but we're told no yet as we were leaving it was clearly on offer at... More

We followed the Tripadvisor Reviews as the restaurant we originally wanted to visit was shut. Our experience was terrible! The waiter was incredibly unwelcoming, the food was really overpriced for what it was. Asparagus at 12 Euros which was simply grilled and not worth more than 5 Euros. Both of us ordered wild boar and were not asked how we... More

This was a great restaurant. The serve mostly meat which is most unexpected in this beach town but the food is delicious. We had a very relaxing Sunday lunch here. The interiors were very nice the the servers were helpful. The tapas bar is a very happening place. Next time that will be on my lists of must do.

First night, we had wine and tapas - 4 tapas plenty for the 2 of us. The guys behind the bar were great - I wanted to speak Spanish and I'm sure they spoke slowly - but also helped with English (I'd not met the word for quail before!). Lovely lively atmosphere, good food. Unfortunately, we went to the restaurant... More
