Been there, done that, got the T-shirt. We went to Toño's Kitchen and now we know. OK but not great. The first bottle of wine, a 1985 Pesquera, was spoiled, undrinkable and left untouched, but not withdrawn from the bill. The squid, Galician style, was excessively salty and chewy, definitely not fresh. The rodaballo fish, (turbot) better, but sadly accompanied... More

We had tapas here 1st - it was excellent - we had to go back the next day to try the restaurant the next day - and we're not disappointed. They also had an English translation of the menu which was helpful. We were 100% satisfied. Staff are lovely - un rushed traditional Spanish style restaurant - this will not... More

We searched this out because of the good TA reviews, and were not disappointed. Over a couple of visits we tried various different tapas, all of which were excellent. Some are cooked to order and may take up to 15 minutes to arrive - time to sample the excellent wines. Definitely worth a visit.

We went here as it was recommended in the Lonely Planet. Slightly away from the centre of town, but worth the walk. We had to take a bit of pot luck with some of our choices, but weren't disappointed. Ideal for pinchos in the bar and the restaurant out the back looked very busy with locals. An excellent experience.

They have a comedor at the back (dining room). You are best to reserve a table there as they get full. Spanish do not start turning up until 21.45 and stay and eat until around 1.00. All other tabes were Spanish. The server went out of her way to make us feel comfortable. Ours was the only table for two.... More

We had eaten a lot of tapas by the time we arrived in Salamanca, therefore, we followed Trip Advisor and decided to eat at La Cocina de Tono. What a unique,unassuming place we found this to be. My northern accent didn't help when ordering, but the lady owner was very endearing and helped me chose. Sitting at the bar or... More

Delicious and unique tapas in an upscale atmosphere. Get there early to guarantee a table (8:30 pm). Be sure to sit in the tapas area and not restaurant. Staff is friendly and helpful- provided us great suggestions. Our favorites included the croquetas, ravioli, and saquito de morcilla con manzana y crema de patata (a creamy seafood purée in a pastry).... More

Tapas in Spain can be anything : from average uninteresting bites to small portions of sublime dishes. In this unique place, tapas are an art. Chipirones, Viera, Bombon de foie, ravioli de mano de porco, rabo de toro in tinto, tarta de queso: everything was just perfect. With a selection of local Salamanca tinto wines upgraded by Rioja and Rioja... More

at my first night in Salamanca I followed tripadvisor and arrived to "La Cocina de Tono". the waiters helped me choose what to eat and I enjoyed it all! I set next to the bar at one of those high tables. If you seat inside you can't choose tapas and the prices are different. I recommend you to enjoy all... More
