“A horrible slow and rude. Service restaurant”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

We arrived at the restaurant at 1:40pm for lunch. I made it pretty clear that I was here for an important event (engagement lunch) so they gave us a nice table by the windoww. After 40minutes without even asking what we wanted to drink I asked a waitress and she said I had to ask the sommelier for orders. This is what I did, he was rude and did not apologize for being 40 minutes waiting for a glass of water. He suggested "cochinillo and one local wine"
After being sitting there for 45 extra minutes I complaint and the finally brought my meet and drink. The wine was good but the meet was horrible, it did not help they put kidneys without me ordering it. I am not driving from Madrid one hour and a half for this '''excellent''' restaurant ever again.

Tardaron 45 minutos en tomarnos nota para las bebidas en nuestra comida de aniversario, y despues de quejarnos dos veces. Luego tardaron mucho en traer la comida (desde que nos sentaron hasta los entrantes y la bebida pasaron 95minutos) luego el cochinillo estaba basta insipido... NO MERECE LA PENA ESTE RESTAURANTE.

The hotel is winderful.

“Restaurant in 12th Century Castle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

The restaurant is set in a huge Baronial style hall on the ground floor of the impressive 12th century castle in which the Parador is situated overlooking the town of Siguenza, north of Madrid. Large windows look out over the hills and farming land surrounding the castle. Tables at the windows are relatively few and are sought after so get in early if you want to secure one! Local dishes are on the menu as are international dishes. Coeliacs and Diabetics are well catered for as are vegetarians . There is a special gluten free menu. The main a la carte menu includes the following regional dishes which you might consider sampling:
"Huevos fritos con migas y torreznos" fried eggs with savoury fried bread crumbs and breaded bacon; "Cabrito asado a la barrena" which is roasted young goat which has been locally produced; "Medallones de solomillo al fino olorosa" being succulent pork cooked in a wine sauce; and for dessert try the: "Borrachitos seguntinos", a sweet pastry soaked in liqueur; and the "Flores de Cabanillas which is a pastry dish shaped as a flower; The food in general is good and well prepared but quite regional Spanish as one might expect with lots of choice. The wine list has a reasonable selection at fair prices with a number of interesting wines available by the glass.

“Eat like an earl in a medieval setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

The food is good, but it' especially the historic atmosphere of the room that makes it unforgettable

“Wonderful atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

After exploring Siguenza on foot all morning we stopped here for lunch. We were greeted by a friendly waitress who gave us our choice of seating. The restaurant is nicely decorated. The food was great--a wide selection of items to choose from. It was a bit pricey, but it was nice for a special lunch in a very special little town.
