Further along past the sea wall we came to the restaurant where we had eaten on an earlier visit to Cadiz.
The restaurant didn’t open for a further 10 minutes and we decided to wait. Once it opened the restaurant’s bar area soon filled up and we then we were just one of the many customers trying to get the attention of the bar staff. I had written our order on a napkin and was looking forward to a pizza.
After a 30 minute wait I was handed a gazpacho prawn covered in sea salt and oil. At this point I should have sent it back (or at least tried to) but by the time I realised I had the wrong the meal the waiter had gone.
Our other meal, a lasagne, came 15 minutes later and I was able to share some of this.The bar area was jammed with customers by now sitting at tables, sitting at the bar or simply queuing to grab any seat. Clearly this was a very popular lunch venue.
We left disappointed in the meals, the long wait and the prices that we were charged. Last time we had eaten there it was much later in the day and the restaurant was almost empty.
Back to the ship
Once back on the sea wall we walked back towards the port area.
Once inside the terminal, we joined fellow passengers and crew taking advantage of the fast wi-fi service.
