Meson de Gonzalo starts off in your good books because they will actually serve you at 8 o'clock and not make you wait till after 9 which seems to be when the locals start thinking about an evening meal. The menu is typical of the region so be prepared to be a little adventurous - the baby leg of lamb... More

We went for lunch and ordered from the "Menu del dia" (daily special), which included an appetizer, main course, dessert and drink (water, tea or house wine) for a reasonable price and it was all very good. The fish was a type of whitefish I was unfamiliar with, but it was grilled to perfection along with vegetables and was very... More

We had the croquetas as an appetizer, and they were fantastic. I ordered the special fish (a whitefish) and my husband ordered a vegetable salad. Both were very good, but the vegetable salad was outstanding and like nothing I have had before. If we go back, I will definitely order that salad! Great food and atmosphere!

Authentic food but upscale environment. Ceiling was stone, portions were generous. I ordered a cheese and yogurt salad and it was absolutely amazing. A green salad with mango, tomatoes and cheese filled pastry pieces and balsamic drizzle. With a scoop of frozen tart yogurt on top. The combo sounds odd but it was spectacular and healthy all in one!

Tiny place with mind blowing food. Not one thing was so so- all perfect! Traditional food with a twist and oh so good! It's packed and is a small place so make sure you reserve. My prediction is a Michelin here - it sure as hell deserves it. Perfect dishes - make sure you especially try the mollejas( sweatbread), the... More

My husband and I ate here in September, 2016. We had eaten in this restaurant a number of times in the past when it was simply known as El Meson. Now the restaurant has been completely refurbished and redesigned in a very pleasing way. Our table had a view of the kitchen and it was enjoyable to watch the work... More

After somewhat disappointing food in Segovia we were determined to find a good restaurant in Salamanca. We happened upon El Meson and looking at the reviews on Tripadvisor booked a table at short notice. The staff were excellent, the food superb and both food and wine very good value. Highly recommended.

Description
Located just outside Plaza Mayor this small place if full of flavor from the area. I would say its cuisine is modern but yet keeping the traditional ingredients of Castillian region.

Inspiration and culinary passion inhabit among the stones of the Plaza Mayor of Salamanca.

The bar and the tables at LasTapas de Gonzalo share history between the Villamayor stone wall and the apse of the Romanesque Church of San Martin.

Historic flavour, aroma of food. A magical atmosphere where over thirty different types of Tapas are presented every day

This new culinary space, Las Tapas de Gonzalo is the evolution of Plaza 23. The same staff, the same passion, but a new concept based on an affordable casual culinary offer, not forgetting the most important thing: high quality products.

The bar, the terrace or the cozy dining room with spectacular views of the Plaza Mayor, these three spaces are the perfect environment for taking part in a cutting-edge culinary experience, that will make your vist to Salamanca, simply unforgettable our
