This little offspring of Cambio de Tercio, just along the road, is a lively little tapas bar specialising in sherry and Jamón but also serving other delicious tapas.
From the small menu you can try:
The wonderful 5J Cinco Jotas Jabugo Jamón Iberico de Bellota or the chorizos and other charcuterie.
The patatas bravas here are served in all of their 4 restaurants and tapas bars. Small new potatoes are hollowed out and filled with smooth tomato bravas sauce, topped with a luscious dollop of spiky alioli.
Cádiz is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in Western Europe, with archaeological remains dating back 3100 years. Founded by the Phoenicians, it was the trading port with the Americas during the 18th and 19th centuries.
This famous spot in the Casco Antiguo (the older part of Cádiz is within the remnants of the city walls and is commonly referred to as the Old Town) it is an old school restaurant and tapas bar (the name means house of Lard!).
It is steeped in history and its walls are like an atmospheric art gallery from a bygone age, covered with various bullfighting memor...
The Pedro Domecq Bodega (famous for Harvey’s Bristol Cream, Terry’s Brandy and Fundador Sherries) is a really interesting experience that can be arranged shortly before visiting.
The guides speak good English and give a very in-depth guided tour around the bodega, explaining, how the different types of sherry and brandy are produced and stored, bottled and marketed under their different brand names.
The solera system is explained, where a third of the wine is drawn from the oldest barrel at the bottom of the solera for bottling and replenished with a third from the next...
Situated on a corner of the now trendy area of Bermondsey Street this cosy little tapas bar serves up excellent authentic tapas. Opened by José Pizarro with his eponymous restaurant, Pizarro, further up the street.
José is a buzzing spot for an atmospheric lunch or dinner.
This is not a sit down restaurant, but a Spanish bar, where you go to have a drink and some tapas, standing or sitting on stools with a barrel for a table. There are also window stools looking out onto the street.
The dining room of this spacious and elegant restaurant is located in what was once a antiguo casco de bodega (sherry winery/celler) It was transformed into a fabulous restaurant where the aim was to showcase the local food of Jerez de la Frontera and the rest of Spain along side the local sherry wines.
In this old bodega light penetrates the room through the spartans that cover the windows, letting in the Jerezana breeze, especially on days of sunset, maintaining the optimum temperature of their wines.
The room is set on the original floor where the sherry foremen once tasted the sherry wines...
La Venencia is like stepping back in time into an Andalusian sherry bar from the 1920/30’s. The bar has a great history to it (it is believed anti Franco supporters used to meet here during the Spanish civil war).
It is doubtful the place has changed much over the years. The unassuming sign above the door. The dusty old sherry bottles behind the bar & the vintage posters on the walls gives the place great character.
This refreshingly non modernised, quirky old bar only serves sherry. You will see very old smoke stained walls and casks of various types of sherry from where they will fill unlabelled bottles. The menu...
