Went there with my mom on Constitution Day for lunch to try the cochinillo. I had recently been to Casa de Cándido in the heart of Segovia (possibly one of the best restaurants for cochinillo in Spain) so the bar was very high. The cochinillo...More

Just arrived from our international trip, we left our luggage at the hotel and they recommended this place. Outstanding option. The entrance is through Cascajares Tabern, which I would probably visit next time. The restaurant is 100% authentically Spanish, and everything we tried was outstanding:...More

At this centrally located traditional restaurant, the ground floor bar or tavern was fully packed on a Saturday night, packed with clients who are presumably locals, chatting away over drinks and tapas. We headed to the restaurant downstairs, passed the kitchen behind a large glass...More

We wanted to eat meat and El Senador came as a good recommendation, It has a front bar area, however the restaurant is at the back and very comfortable. The wait staff were very surly, did not want to really engage, were not bad, just...More

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and

pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
