The only great historical romantic cafe preserved in Andalucia and possibly throughout Spain.

This is a cafe to linger in to enjoy your surroundings. We had coffee and strudel which was delicious. My only niggle was getting waitress attention even though it was quite empty at the time but once she noticed us, service was good
We stopped by for a glass of cava while exploring the city. The restaurant is lovely decorated and gives off an international air... Although a beautiful place, it did not have the charm of many other places, but worth a stop.
What a fantastic place! No reservation, made to feel welcome from the start. One side is restaurant the other side more casual café & drinks.
The service was fantastic - everything is wheeled to the table on trollies and you are made to feel so...More
We were disappointed by the disinterested service and I was not overwhelmed by the food. It was a bit dull and overpriced. It was my least favourite meal in Cadiz and the most expensive. The service was ok but the started putting up internal blinds...More
I was told about this place by someone, who said it was worth a visit, and it was.excellent service and really good food. The decor is like something from about 1920 and the service was the same, great start with great attention to detail.
Got here at 7.15 just ahead of the evening rush. They have done an amazing job in restoring a fin de siecle feel to this 104 year old establishment. Food and service every bit matched the surroundings. Loved the drinks trolley.
What a spectacular place, like eating in an old Palace, decor is out of this world, even the ceilings are like something from from the cistern Chapel, food & service are too match, stayed 3 nights in Cadiz, 2 of the nights went to cafe...More

I can't answer for the restaurant, but Spanish cuisine doesn't major on vegan or gluten-free dishes as far as I can tell. You may be able to get a plate of grilled vegetables, olives and some vegan salads, but most dishes... More
I can't answer for the restaurant, but Spanish cuisine doesn't major on vegan or gluten-free dishes as far as I can tell. You may be able to get a plate of grilled vegetables, olives and some vegan salads, but most dishes are fish or meat-based, and bread and breadsticks are universally offered. A vegetarian paella might be what you need, but you'd have to check with the restaurant. Late dining is de rigeur in Spain, so I doubt you'll have any problems eating at 22.00hrs.
