Albores

Albores serves contemporary twists on traditional Spanish dishes, plus an impressive wine list in an upscale setting. While it can get quite busy and may be a bit pricey, the exceptional quality of the cooking, the artful presentation, and the attentive service make every penny and moment worthwhile.

Dining

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.
