    La Parra Vieja: Best for lunch

    by lomi Updated May 13, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are plenty of touristy bars for an inexpensive tapas in Jerez, but La Parra Vieja offered a 3 course lunch for 6.95 euros, which we couldn't resist trying. The interior of the restaurant is well worth seeing for a coffee even if you dont eat there, as it is one of the oldest buildings in Jerez.

    Jerez is so small it is easy to find Plaza Esteve, which is not far from where the tourist trains stops. Well worth seeking out, I would love to know what the evening meals are like, as we found this on our last day.

    Favorite Dish: Menu del dia:

    Revuelto (scrambled eggs with broad beans),

    pollo ( chicken in wine),

    fruit

    large glass of wine and basket of fresh bread

    Pasteleria Obrador, Plaza del Arenal: Economical and friendly

    by ELear Updated Apr 29, 2010

    I had lunch two or three times at the Pasteleria Obrador, in Plaza del Arenal. (walking from the Nuevo Hotel, go down Calle Caballeros, past El Corte Ingles, then turn left into the Plaza). A decent place popular with local working people, good food, friendly, and not at all expensive.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Vegetarian restaurant are usually difficult to find outside of the big cities. One can always eat well of course with salads, potatoes and so on but finding a Vegetarian restaurant in this small town was a real surprise!

    Good vegetarian tapas!

    Meat and fish dishes also served.

    Both indoor and outdoor seating.

    Favorite Dish: They serve both Spanish and other Western foods.

    La Maceta: Sunday brunch

    by unaS Updated Feb 1, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are very few places to eat on a Sunday in Jerez d.l. Frontera. Of those that are open most are for tourists and expensive. I was lucky enough to find one a place popular with the local people - I heard only Spanish being spoken around me.

    There are tables outside. It is a tiny little shop front where you can see the food in a refrigerated counter behind glass. There is a stand-up food bar inside.

    It had the best tapas I ate in Spain. Full meals available too at much better prices than any of the other places I tried. I had 2 tapas for Sunday brunch: a Tortilla Espanola and a Salmon Ahumado (smoked salmon). Both were served with bite size bread sticks, olives and tomato slices. Both were delicious. The tortilla was a perfect combination of potato and onion omelet.

    The only draw back to this place imo is that they don't serve coffee ^00^
    Had to go to the place next door for that (the tapas there were more expensive).

    Favorite Dish: Tapas were Euro 2 each, 1/2 litre bottle of water 90 Euro cents.
    In comparison, the place next door was charging Euro 2.40 per tapas and the place across the street wanted Euro 2.50 each.

    La Vega: Only if you are desperate.

    by unaS Updated Feb 1, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A large restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating.

    Advertise on a large board outdoors Menu Del Dia, but the choice is non-existent. There is one meal available only, one desert only, water or a cup of soft drink. If you want coffee then you can have that in place of the desert.

    The food was terrible. The main dish was a paella that was tasteless, salty and too oily to eat. The desert was a very watery dish of custard.

    The service was worse. A great deal of time and attention is given to regulars customers drinking wine, but almost no service at all to others - perhaps because I was a woman eating solo?

    I had to get up from the table after waiting some 20 minutes just to get a menu. Meanwhile I saw the same 2 waiters serving other people, chatting with them, returning to those other tables and so on. I was ignored till I demanded service.

    Favorite Dish: Didn't find the food tasty at all. Even the coffee, unusual for Spain, was too weak.

    La Ina: Coffe and snacks

    by unaS Written Feb 1, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I had coffee here. Saw lots of other foods being served and at the counter inside. Mostly tapas and snack foods. Didn't see full meals available.

    Nice tables outdoors and a food bar indoors.

    Heard some Spanish but mostly other languages here - popular with tourists.

    As with most eating places in Spain one must be patient.
    Service is good, with pleasant waiters but slow.

    Favorite Dish: The coffee was good. The puddings/sweets were tempting but I managed to resist :~>)

  • ...: Tapas Prices

    by blint Written Dec 10, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Upon my recent visit to Jerez I noticed that the prices of Tapas were higher than that of the Capital, Cadiz. In Cadiz a Tapa will normally only cost you around €1.50 on average and in Jerez a tapa (a small dish of different foods normally ordered in 2's or 3's) will cost you from €2 to €2.50 on average.

    Favorite Dish: One Tapa that is made especially well here in Jerez is Berza. Berza is a like a stew of chick peas, long green beans, white beans, black pudding and pork, though the exact ingredients tend to differ place to place, recipe to recipe.

    Local Cafe: Spanish Breakfast

    by Pakistaniguy Written May 12, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I had my first Spanish breakfast in a small Cafe next to the Jerez main bus station. It was good and cheap. There were many locals who were having the breakfast and i enjoyed being of them :-) The breakfast was only 1.2 Euros.

    Favorite Dish: The breakfast included a (milk) coffee, bread and salty butter. By the way, there were many kinds and colours of butters and i was astronished to see that there are different colours and flavours of butters ! I remember that the orange butter was made by pig products. I do not know what and how because me being muslim :-) if u r interested look for it and ask.
