Description: This is the house that Aurelio Montero founded in 1953 in a small space, with only two rooms. It is the oldest eatery in the historic center of Toledo.The whole family attended the business, the kitchen and the tables, with the good taste of the grandfather Joseph, and the partridge recipe "with secret" from Grandma Paula and of course, the tenacity and hard work of a boy of 16 who already knew business, offering each day a premium product, a simple kitchen but careful and friendly service.Sixty years later, the spirit of that good work survives. And if you look around, the atmosphere and decor, the table and the tablecloth, the cup and the dish did not recreate, but retain the furnishings and objects, the charm and tradition of the time, with their advantages and disadvantages, with its successes and impossible combinations, but making this our home, a unique and unrepeatable place installed in the heart of Toledo.We feel that time may stop while you also slows the pace, breathe easy, low tone, raises the spirit, ask for a wine and finally eat. Cuchifrito, lamb, partridge, cod, chicken broths, soups, white beans along with wine and beers to taste.Traditional Mancha with a touch of sincerity Aurelio style.Today the house has been extended and has a reserved and two dining rooms for a total of 75 people. Could be our slow food ."Because our servers are hopeless romantics break the dishes after just a meal: water lilies or dishes that mimic horseshoe crabs, swift wings, goldfish, swirls, spiracles in a rictus: all smashed against the edge of the table chef ... but also refrains from using pepper & salt in favor of violets & eve & squid ink wasps and honey & rare lichens grown in the county snow authentic dark silt of the Nile or the Tigris. Would not it know that poultry meat, if cooked well, heals the most common mental illnesses? 's something related with feathers. ... but you're hungry. Spend. Sit. Evidence. " (Amy Beeder. because our servers are hopeless romantics, 2009 ")Es la casa que fundó Aurelio Montero en 1953, en un espacio pequeño, con tan solo dos habitaciones. Es la casa de comidas más antigua del casco histórico de Toledo.La cocina mantiene intactas algunas ollas, recetas y tradiciones. La atmósfera y la decoración, la mesa y el mantel, la copa y el plato no recrean, sino que conservan los enseres y objetos, el encanto y la tradición de aquel entonces, haciendo un espacio único e irrepetible en el corazón de Toledo. Sentimos que el tiempo puede detenerse mientras uno también frena el ritmo, respira tranquilo, baja el tono, sube el espíritu, pide un vino y por fin, come. Cuchifrito, cordero, perdiz, bacalao, pistos, sopas, judías blancas, guisos y verduras acompañadas de vinos y cervezas al gusto. Cocina tradicional manchega con un toque de sinceridad al estilo Aurelio.Hoy la casa se ha ampliado y cuenta con un reservado y dos comedores para un total de 75 comensales. Podría ser nuestro slow food.Para ocasiones especiales, se cuenta además con dos espacios adicionales, La Bodega y el Mesón, con capacidad para 200 personas, escenarios perfectos para la celebración de actos sociales, comidas de empresa, eventos, catas de vinos y aceites, sin olvidar las bodas sencillas pero con mucho encanto.TIPO DE COCINA. Tradicional castellana. Producto de alta calidad y cocina artesanal

“Unique and Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2011

We were strolling around Toledo looking for a place to eat. A shop owner on the main street, pointed us up the hill to Casa Aurelio. At 4 p.m., not surprisingly, we were the only patrons. The food was delicious. We both had the suckling pig (absolutely delicious) and a great salad and enjoyed the local wine that the waiter recommended. The staff was attentive and language was not a barrier. Wide selection of menu items, focused on meat and game. We know enough Spanish to read the menu items, and then were able to point a finger. Definitely would return. I think it is worth going just for the decor. 99 euros for two, plus we had dessert.

“Wine cave style dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2011

We happened upon this restarant off the main shopping street in Toledo and were so happy to have found it. Set in a wine cave with nice linen tableclothes and napkins, we enjoyed the tuxedo clad staff. The food was so delicious! My husband enjoyed (?) the boar, my son loved the lamb chops and my daughter and I had the best filet of beef in puff pastry! The limited English of the staff was not a problem and English menus were available. Would definitely recommend!

What an excellent enjoyment we had in this Michellin recommended restaurant. Food is exquisite and red wine so good. Manager Vicente and their cook are very friendly to us. I will always remember your excellent service. Hope everyone has the chance to try it too.
