Oh my, how I could eat some of the seafood tapas on offer here right now, washed down with an ice cold manzanilla or cana. When I dream of summer holidays in Spain I dream of this place, it is perfect in every way. Sadly as I write this I'm stuck in London on a cold, wet February night and... More

Came here on TA recommendations. Very friendly helpful staff, but don't dream of ordering anything other than the local wine / manzanilla if you want to stay friends! Very keen to point out that this is not Jerez!! Two fridges of tapas for you to choose from ....so spoilt for choice. Waiters only to happy to help you make a... More

Hamstrung by not really having a confident command of the Spanish language so we relied on recommendations from the locals in our broken Spanish where to eat. Today we find ourselves in Sanlucar De Barrameda. We first stumbled into a local Bodega (winery) after tasting and a purchase they recommended Casa Balbino a locals tapas mostly seafood gastronomic wonder. We... More

Also had other things out of which i would like to flag out kidneys on sherry! A bit problematic service - one waiter was fantastic another wad superignorant.... More

The terrace on the square was very busy when we arrived, and we had to search for a table. The menus are in Spanish and French (no English) but nearly every dish seemed appealing. The inside counter where you order has many of the items on display. Despite the busy-ness (and my poor Spanish) the staff took my order very... More

Unusual because it's all self service. You have to find your own table on the plaza (or wait for one if crowded). To order you go inside and ask (or point) for what you want. A huge selection of sea food and probably the best tortellinas camarones that you'll eat anywhere. Return to the counter to order more, trying as... More

Casa Balbino in Plaza Cabildo is simply great! You go in, pick what you would like to eat, cold or hot samplers . Make sure you request everything in "tapa" size order. It's what the staff recommends. You order, get served and you pick up your own order and take it to your own table. Don't expect someone to come... More

What an amazing choice of dishes; we eventually went for prawn tortillas, gambas al ajillo, jamon & copas of Manzanilla and it was all superb. Salud Balbino!!

Popular place with out of town Spaniards and touristas Huge wealth of food on offer, particularly seafood. Helpful and honest bar staff. Good value and highly recommended. As others have said, grab a table first, then order, and wait for the food to be prepared and take it to your table yourself. To pay, find the server who dealt with... More
