We knew it would be both good and expensive. TA reviews assured us of a good experience and it was very professionally run restaurant. Order the roast pig to see the performance of cutting and serving it. Very clever and enjoyable. The house wine and cider were good It's a huge multi roomed place so we got a table easily.... More

Took my parents as a treat, as it is more expensive than others. However it didn't disappoint. The roasted suckling pig was delicious, and came with a flamboyant display of cutting it up with a plate. For the size and quality of the piece of meat (1/6th of a piglet!) I thought it was good value (€25), however as in... More

This restaurant might not be the top well known place in Segovia for roasted sucking pig, but I give it five star. It's located very close to the cathedral and the service is fast and efficient. The roasted pork meat was so tender and not greasy at all. At the end of our meal, the restaurant gave away a hand... More

If you want to eat cochinillo, this is the place. It does get crowded, so you should make a reservation before getting to Segovia or once you arrive at Segovia. We were a party of three and decided to wait for a table at the bar area in case someone cancelled, and after 20 minutes we had our table. From... More

Our waiter in Madrid recommended this restaurant to us. When you walk in, it looks like a small restaurant but there is another building in back which is huge. We sat near the framed autograph of the king who apparently loves this restaurant. We ate the famous cochinillo - suckling pig. The experience is not to be missed. They bring... More

We were told by a local to go here for the best in Segovian traditional cuisine. So glad we did! I was with my husband and 11 year old son. The owner came out and greeted us after we had the artichokes with egg and ham. Not to take away from the main dish of roasted pig but this is... More
