Using only the finest in locally sourced meat and fish, the focus is on elegant simplicity. This means that world-renowned Aberdeen Angus beef and hand-dived North Atlantic scallops will both be jostling for your attention on the menu (and, most likely, on your plate as well).

    Lovely food, only downside was there were only three King Prawns in my Pad Thai which was a disappointment. My friend ordered the Katsu Chicken Curry and said her's was also delicious. Good value for money and good selection on the offer.

    Cadiz - Doesn’t disappoint

    This was my third visit to Cadiz and it didn’t disappoint. Everyone enjoyed the food and wine and the nice atmosphere in the restaurant. The only slight issue was it did feel a bit cold in the area we sat in. Saying that it don’t stop us sitting there for four hours. Will be back again.
