Best Restaurants where to eat in Vejer de la Frontera

As locals in Vejer and doing our Sherry & Tapas tour, we have tried lots of restaurants in the area. Thus, we like to think we know where to eat in Vejer de la Frontera that will never disappoint you. We have made a list with the best restaurants in Vejer de la Frontera, depending on the type. We have also written a blog with the best apartments and hotels in Vejer if you are interested.

Vejer is an amazing place for foodies and anyone who loves food. Wherever you go, you will find amazing food quality made with local produce. Not far from here you have free-range beef, a fishing port in Barbate, and lots of fresh produce around and in Conil de la Frontera.

There are many options to choose from, and sometimes it is hard to choose where to eat in Vejer de la Frontera. Hopefully this list will help you decide.

Spanish Cuisine restaurant

For traditional Spanish food and bluefin tuna among other restaurants we recommend:
La Judería“: Huge variety of Sherries and local wines with amazing views and lots of great food like Bluefin tuna and incredible views of this beautiful White town of Vejer de la Frontera. You will find the restaurant adjacent to the Jewish quarter of Vejer.

La Casa Varo“: Lots of wine variety and wonderful food very near to the Divino Salvador Church.
Las Cuatro Estaciones“: Great variety of tasty dishes with very nice presentation. It has an asian influence in some of their tasty dishes.
Vinográfica de Vejer“: Variety of tapas with great Andalusian wines and sherry selection and books to enjoy them with!

Traditional Spanish Tapas

If you prefer tapas, then I would recommend the Bar  “Califa Tapas” or more local restaurants like “El Conejito“. “Caragato” in Plaza de la Paz is also a great place to try some local tapas with some good sherry and with some flamenco shows in Vejer.
A little bit outside the main area of Vejer you will also find El Siglo which makes traditional Spanish tapas. Their specialty is snails, which you can find when in season (about May – July), however you will find much more.

The “San Francisco Local Food Market” is also a very nice place to visit and serves local food. Though sadly, I do not count this food market in this list as it is not a restaurant.

Outskirts of Vejer with Vehicle

If you have a car and are looking for meat and Spanish meat products then I would recommend “La Castillería. It is within Vejer de la Frontera municipality and is one of the best known spots in Cadiz for top quality meat.
Another really nice place for Spanish food outside of Vejer is “El Patria”. In fact, it is the highest rated restaurant in Tripadvisor in Vejer de la Frontera. Its meny changes very oftern and it was recommended by Lonely planet. Incredible high quality food made with fresh seasonal products.
Venta Pinto” in la Barca de Vejer, famous in Spain for its “bocadillo de lomo en manteca” and great fresh produce.

Other cuisines

I highly recommend the restaurants “Bar Sumia” and “El Jardín del Califa” for Moroccan cuisine. El Jardín del Califa is the most known restaurant in Cadiz province for this type of food and it is listed in the michelin guide. The Access is through the Hotel “Casa del Califa” near the Plaza de España in Vejer de la Frontera.
