Las Flores

, Plaza Las Flores, is a cervecerÈa-freidurÌa, literally beer and fried-fish place (though it also serves fino and wine), with superb seafood tapas.

Bar El Faro, calle San Felix 15, serves the classiest, most elaborate tapas, with hot dishes cooked to order in the kitchens of the city's best restaurant, also called El Faro (Tel: 0034 956 211 068), next door.

La Caleta, Plaza de San Juan de Dios: its indoor bar resembles the prow of a ship, and there are outdoor tables on the square. Vegetarians will be glad of the delicious fried whole peppers and champiniones al jerez (mushrooms in sherry) on its menu.

The Parador Hotel Atl·ntico (Tel: 0034 956 22 39 08, www.paradoresspain.com/spain/pcadiz.html), overlooking the sea and next to the sub-tropical Parque Genovès, is the place to stay.
