Worth a visit if you're in Alcalá

Took the family out for lunch and started with a simple plate of croquetas. One had the suckling pig, another lamb and one of us the foie in honey. One boy had the burgers (not in a bun) and the other had the bread covered filete. The important thing here is not to have the Foie in honey unless... read more

This restaurant is a classic Spanish style that belongs to the modern Parador opposite. The quality of the food was very good as well as the service.

One of the best restaurants I've ever been to. The place is very quaint and the service is formidable. The food is stunning, specially the meat dishes.

Our daughter is a student at the university in Alcala de Henares, and we took her and her host family to Hosteria del Estudiante for dinner. Her host parents had had their wedding dinner there, and their daughter celebrated her first Communion there. They told us that Hosteria del Estudiante is by far the best restaurant in town. We sampled... More

The place is really nice and well located close to the city center and the university. The service is very professional. The food is unfortunately not at the height of the service and the location. I had something that was supposed to be lamb but was more looking like chopped pork and tasting ... Some colleagues had fish and it... More

Big historic room in which we were a bit lost on a Saturday night. Food was good and the staff very helpful. It is fairly pricey though.

We went on a Sunday and as it is kind of normal when you are traveling, everything was a little bit later than normal. We decided to go for a "merienda" (snack) there. The place is really nice... I forgot to say, but "meriendas" are served until 8pm and it was 7:30pm. Since the very first minute they made us... More

I had an excellent multi-course meal at the Hosteria del Estudiante. I tried to order local specialties and was pleased with each course. The setting only added to the experience. Food prices were certainly a bit higher than at comparable restaurants, a tax perhaps for the setting, but well worth it in my mind.
