Its a pity when you get a restaurant, or anywhere else come to that, which is so nearly great but just doesn't quite make it. This place looks good. the service was efficient, if a little brusque, the wine was perfectly fine.
Starters, brilliant. They do a prawn and chickpea dish that is just about perfect, and the desserts were wonderful too. I had a chocolate tart with Sechuan sauce that I'd go a long way to taste again.
But the main courses, no. My partners was OK. Plain but ample. I however made the mistake of ordering the Brochettes. These were barely more that a tapa in quantity, accompanied by only a bland sauce, and overcooked. Odd. It was as though a chef from a rival restaurant had sneaked in and sabotaged the main event.

We had a lovely meal here. Tuna roe tortellinii was especially good. The service (I'm guessing one of the owners) was informative, friendly and unpushy. We had a good bottle of Godello from a shortish but interesting and well priced wine list. I would go back in a flash and highly recommend this place.

We are regular visitors in Vejer as we have a holiday home here. We have tried most of the restaurants in the town. The Vera Cruz under its new ownership stands out in a town already well-served by restaurants. It tries successfully to combine local produce in innovative ways without being too "precious". The ambience is excellent and the service attentive without being intrusive. Prices are OK for the quality you get.

Under new ownership since may 2011, Pablo is the new man in charge and very welcoming he was too. Try the glazed ribs!
