Jerez de la Frontera – Eating & Drinking West of the Centre

Posted in Andalusia, Cadiz Province, Jerez, Spain, West with tags on March 9, 2017 by gannet39

I’ve written several posts on Jerez. You’ll find the index here and the Google map here.

This place was recommended by Alejandro, the helpful receptionist at my guest house, La Fonda Barranco. It’s a down-to-earth place in a working class area within walking distance of the centre. It’s slightly hard to find but definitely worth the effort for their seafood.

Bar Arturo (Elementary A), 9 Calle Guita

I got great service from one of the waiters here who was looking to practice his English. On his suggestion I started with a tomato salad, served with raw garlic and olive oil (B+)…


… and followed up with their renowned fried fish platter (A).


I finished with a shot of PX (B+) I hadn’t had before called El Candado from Valdespino, one of the oldest bodegas in Jerez.


The final bill was very cheap and I’d definitely come again. Worth the short walk if you want a real neighbourhood experience.
