My boyfriend and I live near this cafe and we always go there. It's one of our favorite spots to sit and relax. The views are unbeatable in Salamanca as it faces the the Church of San Esteban. I love their Jamon and lemon ice drinks (granizados). The staff and owners are very friendly. The food is delicious. I highly... More

We stayed at the Hospes Palacio de San Estaban nearby but came here for breakfast and also for drinks in the evening on the way into town. Good food, good value, friendly helpful staff.

Maybe good for brekkie. But terrible for lunch. The hake wasn't cooked enough. All is deep fried. Too oily. The potatoes were not cooked.

I was alone and wanted a light dinner, but the places near my hotel were disappointing-- everyone seemed to be drinking and nobody was eating, which made me wonder if their food was any good. So I kept walking til I found this cafe. I had planned to order tapas but changed my mind and ordered lamb chops instead. Best... More

We stayed in the NH hotel right up the street from this cafe, and had intended to stop by for breakfast, but a surprise rain decided us to go there for a light tapas meal rather than get soaked elsewhere. The tapas were excellent, and not just the replay of standard items....my partner really really liked the tosta de foie... More

Salamanca has so many spectacular options for tapas and paella. Cafe Dominicos is not one of them. The tapas are not bad, but only mediocre with so many other options. The restaurant survives on location alone. There are beautiful views when sitting outside. The service is abysmal, even by Spanish standards. Our server had a hard time remembering what we... More

We made the mistake of stopping in for breakfast this weekend. It was packed with tourists, which should have been a tip-off there. The locals all go to a cafeteria just down the hill or a little restaurant around the corner. They were busy, but severely understaffed, with one waiter handling inside and out. The menu is straight-forward, which should... More

This was the best meal we had during our fortnight in Spain. We stopped off at this quiet little restaurant but were told the kitchen didn't open till 830 pm. But the ones on the main street all seemed rather loud and franrtic, so we had a red wine and waited while working out what to order. You get 3... More
