We have just had a superb lunch on the sunny terrace of La Vista enjoying the stunning views over the town, countryside and out to sea in the far distance. The service was welcoming, friendly and efficient and the food excellent. Highly recommended.

This place is on top of the hill in the old town - the views from the terrace are amazing. The food was good, but nothing special for the price and service ok. All in all a lovely place to spend an afternoon.

We ate here several times. The restaurant is on a tranquil square at the top of the village, with panoramic views from the terraces, across as fas as Cadiz and the Atlantic. Food excellent, and service friendly, helpful and prompt.

We were 8 people lunching, 5 adults and 3 children - we all chose different items and all of the plates went back to the kitchen empty. For a change I had the iberian pork casserole, which was perfectly cooked and seasoned. Others had steak, meatballs, pork fillets etc. The cheesecake was as good as always remember as were the...

A fabulous meal here way up above the rooftops of Medina Sidonia. Great menu, well served, in relaxed atmosphere. Lovely place to sit and watch night fall with a vast outlook over the province of Cadiz. This was my second visit here. Both were highly memorable. Highly recommended.

We spent a very pleasant evening here, starting with sunset drinks and followed by a very tasty three course dinner. Excellent service. We also went for breakfast a few days later ... Also very good.

It was as if the salt, pepper, garlic, herbs and spices had been locked away and the very average produce was completely uninteresting. Even the much heralded view was a disappointment. Yes, you can see a long way, but it... More

Lunch on the roof terrace overlooking the plains. Fantastic view and the food was lovely. Probably the nicest meal out we had in the entire ten days in Spain. Already planning on how we can actually come and stay at its hotel to watch the sun go down over the sea as it would be stunning. Top Notch.

Panoramic views with friendly waitor and a delicious beef salad for lunch. We sat on the open terrace in the sun and enjoyed the views whilst eating and drinking and being very well looked after.
