Venta de Vargas – San Fernando
Venta de Vargas is one of the finest restaurants in the province of Cadiz and is considered a must if you visit the area. Due to the traditional cuisine and the incomparable Flamenco events, the restaurant in San Fernando is called “temple of culture“. The family business, founded in 1924, combines tradition, passion and history.
On its menu you can find the best selection of products of the Bay of Cadiz, which combines modern cuisine with traditional dishes.
Try one of the famous appetizers such as Shrimp tortillas, Bienmesabe, scrambled eggs (with prawns and other delicious ingredients), cold meats, seafood or shellfish.
If you like stews, we recommend the typical Berza Gaditana, Oxtail stew and potatoes with beef pot. These meals are prepared as 90 years ago, according to the recipes of Catalina Perez, who came 90 years ago from Alcala de los Gazules to San Fernando.
Parallel to working as a restaurant, Venta de Vargas is a reference for the art of flamenco in Cadiz province. The most important artists of the province occur here regularly and give you an unforgettable evening or day.
This has turned this establishment into a “temple of culture”. The walls are decorated with paintings and photos of the most important artists who took their first steps here. Personalities like Caracol,who played here very often, Camarón de la Isla, who began his career here, Sara Baras, which became known by appearances at the restaurant, or Nina Pastori, who was discovered by Alejandro Sanz on a flamenco event, form part of the History of Venta de Vargas.
