Located just outside Plaza Mayor this small place if full of flavor from the area. I would say its cuisine is modern but yet keeping the traditional ingredients of Castillian region.

Nice upscale dinner

Lovely meal in a nice cellar setting; food was well prepared and generally a more modern take on classic Spanish dishes. Service is very good. Only issue was the room was very warm.

Just a few steps from the Plaza Mayor, I arrived early for lunch (2pm) at this wonderful restaurant and for a minute I had it all to myself to appreciate the warm ambiance with white linen and homelike feeling. The tapas I ordered (cod, pig's feet) were nicely decorated and delicious! An incredible arroz con mariscos followed being the perfect... More

A lovely vegetable risotto to start and share followed by a sensational solomillo cooked over coals. A bottle of Pago de Carraovejas was the perfect red to accompany a great meal. Finished off with a Torrija dipped in white chocolate served with Bulgarian yoghurt ice cream. Delicious!

This place is a very attractive room in an old building. The food seems very good, but not spectacular -- very nicely presented, however. They started us off with a complimentary amuse-bouche of foi gras. We shared an interesting appetizer described as "pork stew", but actually a sort of stuffed ravioli, that was very nice. The hake dishes were very... More

The place, staff and most overall the food are outstanding, specially the "jamon". We really loved it. The only but is the price, dont expect to have a good meal for less than 50 euros each (including a beer each and dessert for 2)

We asked our hotel concierge to recommend a good restaurant in Salamanca after a real bad dinner on our first night in Salamanca! We thought there got to be one! We were not disappointed! We did not book but we waited outside for the restaurant to open to try to get a table. Arming with minimal Spanish, we ordered 1/2... More

Excellent restaurant. Nice atmosphere. Nice mix of tourists and locals. Very good wine selection. Tip: Cochonillo is the house/regional specialty, and it is delicious, but be warned, it’s a baby piglet, and it’s a little bit recognizable as such.

I was in Salamanca for a month of language study and passed by this place everyday on my way to the University. What attracted me was the sign by the door saying that it was the winner of the 2013 Salamanca Pincho de Oro award, so at lunchtime one day I went in and sat at the bar and said... More

I was looking for a nice place to eat more on the early side with my parents. This ended up being a nearly ideal place: out of the bustle and tourist life of the Plaza Mayor, but not too far of a walk. The food is quite excellent, although the service was typical for Spain: there, but not perfect. The... More
