Only stopped in for a cool refreshing sherry and ended up staying a bit longer than intended. There were some other people eating and drinking too, but no guided tours taking place at the time we visited that we could tell. I would imagine that...More

We turned up without a reservation for the 1100 English tour and tasting. We did not eat in the restaurant. The bodega is very centrally located and was easy to get to and find. The tour was fairly short, but provided you with enough detail...More

Excellent food and the atmosphere was amazing. You eat right in the bodega where they store the Jerez (Sherry). Pure authentic food from the coast of Spain and typical meals from Sanlucar. It will keep you wanting to come back for more.

Rated previously as excellent, the setting is still wonderful and a lovely oasis in the centre of Sanlucar. However, both the service and the quality of the food have declined in the last year.
