“Great Sea Food, Big Portion!”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

We have been to Taberna El Tio de La Tiza 1 day ago. It is located in the city center on a small and typical andalusian street with flowers on the walls. Staff was very friendly and helpful, as well as they don't speak English, they have English and French menus. (English is not a problem at all in Andalusia thanks to its sociable people.) There you can find almost every kinds of Andalusian fishes and tapas. Portions are very big, we had half portion of Calamar but it was big enough for two people. My husband had sardines, we guess that sardines were weighted almost 500 gr.
We had 2 portion of fresh fish, calamar, grilled pepper and 2 glasses of vine, paid only 40 euro in total. The only thing we were not happy about restaurant was little flies. Anyhow, if you are in Cadiz for few days this restaurant can be the first choice for the dinner.

On the positive note firstly: the location is great. A very attractively lit courtyard square, which felt lively and was perfect for people watching as families and couples meandered along between the taberna's entrance and the busy tables. Sorry to report, but that was the start of a poor restaurant experience. It was more than half an hour after we were seated that someone took our order and even longer before the food arrived. Two out of four of our group were served food they hadn't ordered, a third order was incomplete. The food was greasy and I'm afraid, mostly inedible. The waiters were the most bizarre I've ever come across. They weren't rude, they didn't rush us, but they were totally disengaged. They didn't care about us, or any other customers. We wished we'd just stuck to an aperitif and eaten elsewhere.

“Best lunch under the sky of Cadiz”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

I stayed in Cadiz for 3 days and had lunch here several times, it was so good to sit under the sun, eat fresh seafood, first of all softest pulpo a la gallega - and have a glass of jerez in the end. Very friendly staff, changing menu, in the center of walking routs of Cadiz.

“Cracking seafood”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

We stayed here with friends from Seville, had fantastic tapas.

The adobos were fantastic as were the fried fish. Although we had mostly seafood , the meatballs were also superb.
