Some of the Local wine we like from south Andalusia
A nice option to try a wine from Jerez is to get it directly from the barrel (en rama it is called)
Calle Arcos, 4. Jerez de la Frontera Tel 722 745 529
Not a place to have dinner, but the wine is awesome. Give a try to the Palo Cortado or amontillado.
If you want to try some wine from different area in Spain, we suggest you Ribera del Duero, Almansa, Jumilla, Toro, not as know as Rioja but very often interesting
We do like wine ! So we pretty often we buy them online (not for the local ones) on the website www.decantalo.com, or http://www.vivino.com
you are more beers than wine:
Calle Angostillo San Dionisio 2, Plaza de la Asunción
They have a large selection of local beers and some of them from Madrid (like the excellent “Virgen”).
what about trying a local Vermuth:
A little bit further away of the plaza Plateros (in front of a good fruit and vegetable shop in Jerez). They specialized in seafood in can from a couple of very good factories in Barbate and they have a very good tap Vermuth or from Lustau
Check out if they are open (and do not trust just the web site), they change all the time; on a Friday and Saturday evening it is safer to book in advance, as well as in July and august, Easter, during the flamenco festival and the GP moto…
The first restaurant, right after, is really something you can’t miss at the only condition that high gastronomy interest you
Plaza Aladro, 7, 11402 Jerez de la Frontera, Tel: 856 652 739
What telling you without being over positive ?
This restaurant has only 6 tables (so yes reserve it in advance), 2 waiters very professional, 2/3 cooks and 3 gastronomic menus. Menus are in between 36 up to 68 euros and matching wine in between 30 euros (for 7 glasses) to 40 euros(for 10 glasses). The chef really put all its talent to magnify local products. Everything is perfect, the service, the attention, the food obviously and amazing wines. So If you have something to celebrate it could be the place.

some of our guests have recommended us this restaurant, but we have not tried it yet.
Calle Beato Juan Grande, 9, 11403 Jerez de la Frontera, Tel: 646 96 65 69
Aside of the Paella they do in the middle of the patio every friday and saturday lunchtime (check it before and reserve), they have a couple of delicious dish : ensaladilla de gambas, Presa iberica, tarta banofee This is what we like most. Service has up and down when the owner is not there, so better go there end of the week.
Calle de Pescadería Vieja, 8. 11403 Jerez de la Frontera, Tel: 956 34 12 18
Just on the side of El Bichero. Aside of the classicals, they have some very good vegetables (arcichokes ..) and they are renowned for that. You can try the different “guiso” : carrilada, menudo, albondigas… For fried fish El bichero is much better

or on google map : Plaza Monti, 12, 11403 Jerez de la Frontera
Calle Guita, 9 11408 Jerez de la Frontera
The area seems a little bit wild but is is very safe don’t worry !
Eating real beef (T bone, entrecote …in Andalucia is not so obvious) There is no culture of letting the meat rest during 30 days resting. They find their meat in the sierra of Cadiz (in between Grazalema and Bolonia to simplify) For a nice piece of good meat, this is one of the place, not the cheapest but value is ok. You can try as well the different option of Iberic pork which is much more in the culture of the area
Calle San Francisco de Paula, 2. 11401 Jerez de la Frontera, Tel: 956 34 74 75
When you go down to the cathedral, on the left hand side sidewalk you ll find a bar much more than discreet. If you do not enter you can’t see they have actually 5/6 table to have lunch at the back of the bar.
It is wild in a sense that they don’t have any menu (even in Spanish), they do not advertise at all and are full all the time with policemen, workers of the area and neighbours. The two owners for the past 25 years are Manolo and Juan and Manolo’s wife is in the kitchen. Try the fried fish, guisos (carrilada, pollo en limón, albondigas…), and for desert you’ll be able to choose between an apple, melon, arroz con leche or natilla, pretty straightforward
Calle Jose Luis diez, right in front of the police station (Plaza del arroyo)
A meal will cost you 5/6 euros, the complete menu less than 10 euros, many people eat at the bar directly
La rosa de oro
calle consistorio, at the level of plaza arenal; tel 956 905639
Chocolate and orange chocolate are actually very good
