Our hotel booked a table for us - we got a prime table in the middle of the outside area.

It's a busy place and the shellfish was better than the fish (which was very fresh but we were very full by the time it arrived).

The boiled Sanlucar kings prawns were the sweetest I've ever eaten - amazing flavour. We also had two carabineros each - spectacular (if expensive - more than my fishmonger in London charges but that's a unfair comparison perhaps).

Simple tomato salad and an excellent bottle of white Rioja (at €19!).

Service was good - we always got the attention we needed when we needed it.

Good meal, albeit a relatively expensive one.

Very limited food availability on a Monday. No shell fish or popular items available early evening. Service from the Waiters was very poor with a lack of interest and no offer of possible alternatives to unavailable items on the menu.

There are many much better restaurants in Jerez, give this one a miss

We were recommended this restaurant by a local, and boy, they were right. Our meal was sensational, but we had the foresight to leave all choices to our waiter, anticipating they would want to show off. They did. One of the very best meals we have ever enjoyed.

Staying overnight in Jerez, our hotel recommended this restaurant. What an excellent recommendation it was. Four of us dined. I had smoked sardine fillets which we firm in texture, delicately smoked and delicious. For the main course three of us chose sole on the bone plain grilled. They were perfectly cooked and seasoned, and were large. One of the party could not finish. One of the best soles we had eaten anywhere . The other member chose White Sea bream. Beautifully cooked - so moist and delicate. These chefs certainly know how to cook fish.
Only one of us had a desert. With amontillado sherry to start, and a very dark complimentary sherry to end and decently priced wines in between, the bill was €140 which was a very pleasant surprise given the quality of food and service. Thoroughly recommended.

Fresh fish and seafood. Good service. Insist on your table. Watch the portions. They are good size. Monday's they are short on shellfish.
