El Fogon is 20 meters away from the cathedral. It has been voted best tapa several times. It offers something a little different in a city traditionally known for its roasted suckling pig. It sounded interesting, but my experience there wasn't great. Although it didn't seem to be especially busy, the service looked to be overworked and not very welcoming.... More

While there is a tapas bar as a part of this eating complex, we ate in the white tablecloth restaurant which is part of a hotel that you enter from Calle Isabel La Catolica. There is a very complete menu, but among the different specialities is a menu of Jewish Sefardi dishes which are completely unusual and very delicious. The... More

There appear to be 2 different restaurants in the same building. We were attracted by the colourful tablecloths on the outside tables and the 3 course menu at 11.90 which included a glass of wine. Because it was a slow day, we were seated in the main hotel dining room. Our 3 courses included fresh cream of mushroom soup, veal... More

Segovia is a city made famous by 4 things, The Aqueduct, the Alcazar, the Cathederal and Cochinillo Asado. Cochinillo Asado is a dish consisting of the most tender suckling piglet you could imagine and this restaurant serves it as well as you could wish. The 3 course menu costs about 25 Euros and includes wine, water, bread, choice of starters,... More

The bar area fills up in the evening with people wanting a table but there is a waiting list, sometimes 4 tables ahead of you so you must alert the waiter if you want a table. They don’t like you just to walk up and have a look. The tapas menu in the bar area looks pretty impressive, boasting about... More

Our Spanish friends (who live in the province of Segovia) had recommended this spectacular restaurant and we were not disappointed! El Fogón Sefardi is located in the Jewish Quarter and one might be mistaken about its location given that it tucks neatly behind the lobby of a hotel. The backside (and downstairs) is a tapas bar - either place will... More

The food here was great but the service was pretty average/poor and they didn't have the wine we ordered.

We visited this restaurant while in Segovia as a result of favourable Trip Advisor reviews and because it was quite near our hotel. It specializes in local dishes that are well prepared and attractive. We had an enjoyable meal here and will go there again should we return to Segoivia in the future.
