Went on a great date here. They have a new chef and it was truly amazing. The pizza so tender, the prawns were so fresh and the tapas great too. Sharing board to finish was scrumptious too. Thanks to Crusty too for making our night...More

Fantastic place, great food and a great experience. David and the team make wonderful food, very authentic tasting. The pizza bases are great, the tapas dishes are very tasty and incredibly well priced. If you like your wine, you can't go wrong

El Cafe sounds great, but I would like to know if there is parking nearby as we would be coming by car.

Hello LymeLover We have a car park in front of the venue, if that is full there are various car park around us and the High street is only 50 yards away with more parking. Thank you El Cafe Team

El Cafe is a spanish cafe bar in the heart of Shipston On Stour. Come down for an authentic Spanish coffee, a selection of Tapas or a few glasses of wine! The times that we advertise are for food orders/bookings, as in true Spanish style we close when we have finished, we like to fiesta in the evening but in the afternoon we close at 3pm for our siesta, this is so we can do fiesta!!!
