Restaurants and Bars

  • Come and enjoy Califa's range of restaurants and bars

Vejer is perhaps the most famous small town gastro-destination in this part of Andalusia. Well-connected by roads, Vejer is the prime destination to sample a great selection of restaurants and tapas bars.

Competition in the culinary scene of Vejer is fierce, so the quality naturally is high. Vejer’s proximity to the sea and its deep-rooted ties with the land mean that both quality meat and fish are prevalent. ‘Al fresco’ dining is a popular style here, and all eateries have a terrace with great views over the countryside and looking down into the whitewashed cobbled streets.

Vineyards have recently been recuperated and there are now two bodegas producing quality wines which can be visited while here. Vejer is on the edge of the ‘Sherry Triangle’ that encompasses Jerez, Sanlúcar, and El Puerto de Sta. Maria. As a result, Olorosos, Amontillados, and Finos are all used passionately in local cooking as well as being a staple in every bar in town.

Dining in Vejer is not just about the food– the ambience plays a key role, where locals mingle on the streets and blend together with the rich culture and beautiful views. 

Our own eateries encompass a wide variety of styles. In Vejer you are never far from wholesome and delicious Califa food. Our commitment to sustainability and local ingredients drives the quality of our dishes, which exude authentic local flavors.
