Dama Juana, which opened in March 2019, is named after the grandmother of chef-owner Juan Aceituno. Sadly she died just two weeks after the restaurant in Jaen’s barrio San Ildefonso opened.

Jerez is ideally located between the hills and the coast and enjoys the very best of fresh local produce, to which is often added the world famous sherry, brandy and vinegar of Jerez. These are used as main ingredients in many recipes, thus allowing Jerez to provide a surprisingly varied cuisine of the highest quality.

Although it is a small pueblo blanco, Gaucin has a good number of restaurants serving up the very best of traditional, Andalucian cuisine. Gordon Ramsay came to this town to film a part of his show ´Ramsays Costa del Nightmares´, transforming one of the restaurants here from a ´nightmare´ into a top-quality restaurant.

Jaen has a good selection of restaurants, the vast majority of which serve traditional Spanish and Mediterranean food. Fish and seafood are a popular choice in Jaen, trout being the star player, so expect to find prawn and shellfish dishes, as well as meat.

Gibraltar is a multi-racial community so it follows that its range of restaurants reflects the tastes of its inhabitants. Yes, Gibraltar has a McDonalds, a Burger King, KFC, Subway and a Pizza Hut! Running parallel to Main Street is the pedestrianised Irish Town that is well worth a visit with its historic coffee houses, specialist ironmongers, Irish pubs and attractive restaurants.

With modern shops, restaurants and bars bordering one side of the central orange tree-lined promenade and exclusive yachts flanking the other, Muelle Uno is not your average shopping complex. The waterfront open-air mall offers a contemporary shopping and dining experience by the sea, with stunning views of La Alcazaba to remind you of the city's Moorish past.

Spain used to be a vegetarian's nightmare with all those hanging hams and meaty tapas. Vegetarians had no option but to constantly opt for ensaladilla Rusa (the Russan-Spanish potato salad usually served as a tapa), tortilla (Spanish omelette), or the famous main course of huevos con patatas fritos (egg and chips), with the occasional greasy green pepper on the side.

Many of the city's most reasonably priced, traditional restaurants are located in and around the Plaza Juan de Dios, just in from the port and where there is a tight mass of alleyways crammed with bars and restaurants. Many restaurants here offer spectacular seafood dishes, given the abundance of fresh fish that is available in the city.
