Excellent restaurant and very reasonable!

Delicious dinner with interesting dishes and good list of wines of the region. Excellent service and very reasonably priced. We had the same table for breakfast and the views are stunning.

Great food and wine. Very clean with friendly staff. Make a reservation and ask for a table with a view of the river valley. Make sure to try the morteruelo and the croquetas. Highly recommend this restaurant.

So good we went twice. We made a reservation for a table out on the Balcony and had a superb meal . the menu was simple with regional specialities and was reasonably priced. The view just enhanced the experience. We immediately made a reservation for the same table for two nights later and unlike many repeat performances this did not... More

Dinner doesn't start until 9pm but we were graciously received early for a light dinner. The Posada San Jose overlooks the valley opposite the Parador, try to book an outside table. No on site parking but easily reached (upwards) on foot. Great La Mancha wine and local specialities to try. Menu in English available and dishes are reasonably priced. An... More

We walked in without a reservation on a hot Wednesday night at 10pm, no surprise that the small (5 table) terrace was full and that there was a couple already queuing. Official closing is 10:30pm but we asked if we could get a terrace table if we waited. The waiter said sure, come back in half an hour. So we... More

There are no vegetarian restaurants in Cuenca but the Posada de San josé menu included a number of suitable dishes and the staff were very willing to accommodate as much as possible. Added to this a charming location, 2 minutes from the plaza Mayor, and amazing views and the result was a superb evening, about 30 seconds walk from our... More

Must first mention the view from the restaurant which, if you are a couple (couples only 3 tables) have a fantastic view over the gorge. Unfortunately we had not booked and were 4 in number so had a table a bit back from the window. The chairs are not comfortable in fact they reminded me of school chairs and was... More

The view is lovely, the food is good. The portions not large. The service however is not particularly friendly, in fact Basil Fawlty would fit in well. Delivery of the food is inconsistant as our entrees arrived at different times plus I had to remind them that I had ordered a bottle of wine ( which was very nice). If... More

I don't know how much English is spoken here. But try to request a table by the window, as the restaurant overlooks the gorge. The food was good, but was overshadowed by the beauty of the view.

The team at the Posada are all friendly and helpful. We booked a great room with a balcony overlooking the gorge and the Parador. Quite amazing. Nothing frilly but quite individual and all that we needed and more. We dined in the restaurant and had good local food, well cooked flavoured and presented. It is one of the few places... More
