A 10 minutes walk from Ocean Village ,Marina Bay and Queensway Quay Sacarello’s is an iconic coffee shop,Café/ lunchtime restaurant in Irish Town the ‘old commercial street’ of Gibraltar.
It occupies the former warehouse of an early 19th Century Merchant House.

When visiting Gibraltar, you are bound to stumble accross Irish Town. Here there are an abundance of cafe's, bars and restaurants.l We tried out quite a few as we really enjoyed this area. We came to the conclusion that Sacarellos is the best place for either a snack, full on meal, or just a coffee. plenty to choose from on the menu, with something to suit anyone. They do pride themselves on their coffee, and when you taste it you will see why. Steeped in history put Sacarellos on your list of places to visit when in Gibraltar.
Situated in the Irish Town of Gibraltar, Sacarellos caters for almost anyone. Fantastic lunch menu, and probably most famous for their just roasted family coffees, but dont let that fool you into thinking this is a coffee shop. Its much more than this. Food and service are fantastic, and when visiting the Irish Town, make this a port of call.
Loved this Irish Town part of Gibraltar especially this cafe restaurant bar. Never been to Gibraltar and new little about it. Came over as part of the boxing admin. All the staff have been talking about how good the event went and hope to put on other big shows in the future.
Will you be showing the Dillian Whyte v Alexander Povetkin boxing on Saturday Night on a screen?
Get to Irish Town and this place, you will not be dissapointed.
To sum it up, it was a great day.
Nice atmosphere and food+COFFEE.
Has been a favourite haunt for locals for a long time.
