If, like me, you get tied of eating pork each and every day while in Salamanca, do head here. The place is in contest with the life on the streets. While really loud outside, inside is calm with little noise and while calm walls. It's not cheep but portions are generous. Guacamole was superb but oven dishes had to much... More

We ate here at the end of June and the food was very good, not in the exceptional category but we weren't expecting haut cuisine but still good nevertheless. We had the menu del dia (3 courses) which with a glass of wine, beer and a bottle of water came to 25 euros for the two of us. Can't argue... More

A local friend recommended El Laurel to us, and we went there for the menu del día at lunchtime. Everything we had was great and there was a good variety of options. They also had some really tasty desserts, like a cinnamon flan and a fruit batido. This is a worthwhile stop, especially if you are heading over to San... More

I would like to start with the good things: the staff was very kind and the bread tasteful... We went there for dinner, just in order to go to bed unsatisfied. We decided to go there thanks to the good reviews we had read on trip advisor, but (unfortunately too late) we discovered that the only true review was the... More

We were in Salamanca for a few days last week and ate here for lunch. We decided to choose the taster dish for our main course (a vairety of 8 small dishes). This was absolutely wonderful. We then chose a pudding from the menu - the chocolate truffles and cheesecake with toffee sauce were fabulous. The wine was good too... More

Without a doubt the best vegetarian restaurant I have ever been to. The tahini and hummus are amazing the fresh soups and salads are wonderful and the array of main courses are delicious. It is so worth the 5 minute walk from the plaza mayor centre. To top it all the service was excellent each time we went. Well worth... More

We ate here for our first night in Salamanca and it surpassed all subsequent eating places by far. We had the set meal with a selection of different small samples of dishes on the menu and it was fun and delicious. The wine was good and the bread was by far the best I've eaten in all my visits to... More

We booked ahead and opted for a three course menu. There's a wide range of selections, all vegetarian, with some vegan options. Everything I had was good, and the desserts and sangria were excellent. Pleasant ambience and good acoustics. The service was exceptionally friendly and attentive. We were a group of thirteen, and there were plenty of other patrons, yet... More
