La Cruz Blanca

In the heart of old downtown Jerez, La Cruz Blanca awaits as a delightful tapas restaurant. Alongside the tempting tapas selection, you can savour perfectly cooked tender steaks and indulge in the classic Spanish favourite, paella. All of which can be accompanied by Jerez's sherry wines. Given its popularity, it's wise to book ahead as the place can get crowded.


Bearing the vestiges of Andalusian cuisine, Jerez blends its rich, traditional flavours with local specialities in which sherry comes as a welcomed ingredient and the finest seafood arrives fresh from the nearby towns. The main concentration of restaurants sits along Calle Consistorio and Plaza Vargas, serving the best of the regional cuisine. Some of the most popular dishes include riñones al Jerez (kidneys braised in sherry), caldereta (stews), and rabo de toro (oxtail). Across Spain is very common to have lunch at 3pm or dine after 10pm, but a few tapas and a couple of glasses of a full-bodied Manzanilla usually go in between to keep the hunger at bay.
