The Califa philosophy on eating well

We take our commitment to eating well and sustainability seriously. Here at the Califa we use only free range eggs and chicken and organic beef (from the local Retinto breed). Our vegetables are 95% locally sourced (from the province) and almost  60% (depending on the season) are organic. We even have our own smallholding where we are starting to grow our own produce. At the Califa (and Califa Tapas) we use only organic certified sugar and  flours (from the Malaga Sierras). Not only is our produce top quality but it tastes better and travels less far to get to the table. Delicious!

"The Caliph's Garden" is one of Andalucia’s prime eating destinations. You will be served fabulous North African & Middle Eastern food in a historic, tranquil & unsurpassed setting in the heart of Vejer’s medieval quarter.

The Jardin del Califa is set in one of Vejer’s most important historic buildings. The principal building dates from 1527 (and includes parts from the 11th Century) and is now a grade 1 listed monument. The stone clad dining rooms and the palm filled courtyard are the perfect company for your meal with us.

Come to the Califa and you will enjoy tasty dishes, stone vaulted cellars, an enchanted garden, a splashing fountain and scented plants. The haven of this quiet corner in the heart of Vejer will provide you with many memorable moments.
