“Perfect setting, great food and nice staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

The atmosphere on Plaza España alone is worth a visit. But there are several restaurants. Garimba Sur however is the best of them all. Perfectly tucked in the corner of the plaza it has a wonderful terrace with several seating options. Under the pergola or under the sun or the stars - however you feel like. The square gets very busy and so does the restaurant. Still it keeps a relaxed and even romantic atmosphere.
The menu of Garimba Sur is large with many choices from tapas, to meat, fish and sea-food. Of course it's local cuisine but it comes with a distinct twist. Some dishes are almost asian influenced, some remind you of a French brasserie. Everything is fresh and beautifully presented. The wine-list is smaller than the menu but includes wonderful wines at good value prices.
The staff is very attentive and most of all very nice. They all do their best to make you feel right at home and even ask you about your vacation day and give you advice about the best beaches in the area. The owner himself is around all the time and welcomes you personally to make you feel even more special.
The food is on the more expensive side here. But hey, you're sitting on Plaza España, one of the most beautiful squares of the area and you dine in style with enjoyable food and a great staff. Always again!

“Excellent Food, Friendly & Attentive Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

Garimba is one of the best spots in the Plaza España in Vejer. The food is always consistent, excellent service, the owner is always present and very hands-on and the environment is inviting not only to young couples but to large families as well. Can not tell you which dish is the best for everything that I tried was delicious. everytime I am in Vejer we visit Garimba numerous times during our stay in this lovely town. Highly recommend it.

“Tapas with a twist”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014 via mobile

We stopped here late one evening more or less by accident. And what a lucky accident it was... We ordered several tapas and kept on ordening more because every dish was just great. Carpaccio of wagyu beef, mini burgers, chevice with shrimps... A good bottle of wine... A great meal!

“Great Location, Sophisticated menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

We were impressed with the service and ambiance after stopping for a midmorning coffee and decided to return the following evening for dinner with a party of 7. Despite it's popularity, there was no need to book and the waiters swiftly arranged a suitable outside table for us. (Three round tables which almost worked) The Tapas was delicately cooked and we tried most dishes between us with the Tuna coming out as favourite. We ordered main courses after we had finished our Tapas which worked well and allowed flexibility depending on appetite. The wine list was a bit more challenging without knowledge of local wines. We managed to get it right on the 2nd bottle which was dry enough to work with the main courses. I'm sure you pay partly for the location on the square but it was worth it.
