“Favorite Restaurant in Spain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

I studied spanish in Barcelona for six months and ate great food all over when traveling but absolutely loved this place!! My favorite restaurant in Spain! My cousins from Jerez took me here on two separate occasions and the food, service, and atmosphere are all outstanding. Do not miss the Red Tuna (Atun Rojo a la plancha). Do not miss the incredible cerdo (pork) here that you will confuse for a great steak. Named after the owner's father's or uncle's homemade vinegar that he used to make, Bocarambro is an amazing family owned restaurant experience that serves excellent fresh caught and high quality food in great portions with an experience like you entered into the family's home. Yes I am definitely a fan. Muchas gracias. Buenisima

“Well worth a visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

We stopped for a sherry tour and tasting at Sandeman in Jerez and decided to visit the Bar Bocarambo afterwards for lunch. We were warmly greeted by owner, Manuel Garcia Tubio, who explained the extensive menu including many recipes passed down from his grandmother. Manuel recommended 3 starters, potato ensalada with shrimp, tuna cake (paté) and hake in amontillado (sherry) sauce. All were delicious. We followed that with the house specialty, Iberian pork roast and roasted potatoes… outstanding! Finished with fresh strawberry ice cream (similar to a strawberry gelato in strawberry puree) and banoffee tarte (apparently an English favourite and very tasty). The service was very good and there were many seating choices: out front on the sidewalk, in the access way in front of the bar and on the patio in the back. We found the back patio too warm so sat at a table between the front door and bar. A slight breeze kept us cool enough to thoroughly enjoy our lunch.

“Great cuisine and atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

We have been there yesterday. Ordered some tapas and sherry. The owner himself came to us to give us advice on the menu. Had some chicken liver and hawk fish. The food was delicious! It was really unique taste. The atmosphere of the place was very comfortable and romantic. Recommend everyone visiting this place while in Jerez.

“Absolutely perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

I was in Jerez for my job and I found this bar on tripadvisor.
Great experience!
The patio is really nice and the waitress helped me in choosing what to eat... Chocos fritos are great!
The owner spent some time with me and explained how he likes to work and what they can offer...
The Tarta Nelly is one of the best cake ever eat!!
Absolutely recomended!!

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

We went yesterday for dinner and it was an amazing experience. The food was excellent. We order some swrimp salad, ham croquettes, pluma iberica and some cod tapa. All the tapas were served fast and of a really good size. The owner of the restaurant gave us a very good advice on the menu and was fully concerned about the service. I strongly recomend you to go if you are looking for a real Jerez traditional menu and a good value for price. Hope you enjoy!
