Description: Situated in the heart of the old town our small Mediterranean kitchen serves only the freshest produce from neighboring areas whilst fusing ecological ingredients with a slight oriental flavor such as our famous mini retinto beef hamburger with coconut milk and bamboo sauce. Delicious salads with regional cheeses, fresh fish caught daily such as Octopus from Barbate and the only restaurant in town to serve the spectacular special of ecological Kid from Cadiz To compliment our menu we serve over 20 Sherry wines by the glass and local wines and over 200 varieties to purchase by the bottle.

I thoroughly enjoyed eating here - the menu is clearly very carefully thought out, and they are careful to include high quality local produce. Ingredients are all fresh - we loved trying the borriquete, a local fish that is delicious.

Ramon is a wine expert, so he's extremely good at pairing the food with the right tinto - this is also a great place to try sherry.

It's interesting to note that Viña y Mar opens all year round - not like a lot of the restaurants in Vejer... so if you come in the middle of winter, this is a great place to eat.

The service is great - everyone is very warm and friendly.

New to sherry and the owner let me try a bit before fully committing. When he could tell I was just being polite (Canadian, of course), he whisked away the Oloroso and poured me a lovely cream ("Is no problem!"). Lovely place to while away a hot afternoon!

Excellent wine and sherry bar with a wide and unique selection from all over Spain and the world. And their tapas are delicious!. Warmed artichokes in sauce and the deep fried langoustines are exceptionally delicious. Best food I had in Vejer! Owner is very informative and enthusiastic about his wines!

We got there accidentally, everything around was closed due to New Year's Eve. What a positive surprise! Delicious, creative tapas, fantastic choice of tastes. Good wine. I strongly recommend!

Vejer is very charming city - it is what You should searching in Spain: historical, beatutifull, peacefull and close driving to the sea. Views are incredible. Trying to find something to eat we visited top rated restaurants on trip advisor and some of them were closed (Spain) the others we did not like. Being close to leave the city we found ourselves 50m from Vina y Mar. When we steped in we could feel nice smell of food - (what is quite rare in the restaurants anyway). So we stayed even we saw that local people are eating from plastic plates. It was really nice culinary experience. The food was excellent and served in interesting way - even simple anchois with bread looks like sophisticated fusin dish. The only minus is that they told us they dont serve cofee so we skiped the desert.

Really worth to visit even if You have to drive few kilometers.
