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.

We went here for a meal on our anniversary last May and aside from the attractive decor and gracious service I have nothing good to say about the place. Starters, mains and desserts were all average at best. I can't remember exactly what we ate but remember being disappointed at havign shelled out over 100euros on our anniversary for such... More

Hosteria del Estudiante is located in a beautiful old building that used to be a part of the university. It is part of the Parador of Alcalá de Henares. For us, that's about where the good news ends. We had the degustacion menu. In the menu, where the chef is supposed to show what he (mostly he) can and likes,... More
