Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Great local food and nice wine list. Friendly staff. Interior has an authentic vibe with hams and ham-inspired art. Quite the busy place on a Friday night. Recommend you order local dishes, they are great

Booked earlier in the day for opening time. Don’t expect to enter before 8pm. Quickly seated. Well advised while ordering, didn’t over order as a result. We both had pork, which was sublime. The portions are large. Would I recommend….. yes, definitely.

Recommended by our hotel but we had already made reservations prior (a must). A meat heavy menu but everything was fabulous and the portions were beyond generous. Garlic chicken starter was definitely sharable and the spicy pork cheek stew was delicious.

We initially really enjoyed our experience and the food. We visited with two teenage children and were shown good hospitality at the start but whilst we were finishing our drinks an older Spanish man told us we should think about leaving . Very confusing when...we hadn’t yet finished and interesting that some Spanish people had been there much longer and eaten much less. Perhaps there are varying tariffs of welcome for different nationalities . Not impressed ..More

If you like meat, this will not disappoint. Its Wi-Fi password is “1DEJAMON” ( 1 of ham). My wife and I had dinner here twice. The food is excellent and the portions more than generous. At lunchtime, the place is standing room only for its...extensive tapas menu. For those of you concerned about such things, the clientele is mostly Spanish; there were few tourists during our visits. The English descriptions of the menu items are rather limited, but the menu is well organized so you are not likely to be too surprised. The front room is the tapas bar and the rear rooms are the sit down restaurant. The decorations include ham hocks hanging from the walls. Reservations might be advised for dinner in the restaurant.More

Food average at best. Mixed salad was mediocre and tomatoes weren’t ripe. Octopus was well prepared but solomillo was over cooked and a small cut. Dessert nothing special and service very slow. Not sure what others are used to but no way a four star...restaurant by Spanish standards.More

I have only ever written positive reviews and from memory have only written twice. I don’t like to put the boot into businesses that have fought hard for their reputation and are maybe having a bad night. Had the worst restaurant experience of my life...tonight. Ordered suckling pork belly prices as a starter which were dry and served with soggy chips. Having eaten fish for 3 weeks I was in a carnivorous mood and ordered sirloin steak with pepper sauce. Well, the pepper sauce never came and when I asked the waiter he seemed offended. More soggy chips also. Couldn’t wait to get out of the place. Hopefully they were having an off night but the service was very rude and I will never go back there.More

True Gaditana experience. Food/tapas are amazing. Moreover the atmosphere and hustle and bustle of the bar makes it a great experience. Probably the best and most efficient staff we have come across in Cadiz. Thank you 👍
