Food is really tasty and delicious, and the price is really affordable. The quality can be as good as in a elegant restaurant. The people who works there are really kind and talkative and they offer you some free samples of their very own plates. They give you a big Tapa with a drink. You need to try the tostas... More

Tucked away in a side street, and very busy - not many tourists, like us! We enjoyed the food, and the wines - and had a decent meal of tapas, some hot, some cold - lovely!

Delicious, varied (and inexpensive) tapas and great atmosphere - full of locals as well as tourists. The barman spoke little English but he was very accommodating and made me feel very comfortable. Definitely my favourite bar in Salamanca -

The waiter did not speak any english nor french. We had no idea what to order. We ended up with some tapas. Then we ordered the octopus, which was not available, so the waiter recommended the Jamon with cheese plater, which was overpriced( 14€)and low quality. Yet, we went there for all the reviews.

Great food! Isn't that the main reason you want to visit a restaurant? El Bardo delivers in that area. We had the best Ternero chops in a long time. Also the waiter warned us about the size of the portions so we ordered 3 dishes (we are a family of 5). This was more than enough.

El Bardo is one of my favorite places to eat in Salamanca. You can either eat eat in the restaurant (upstairs) and you will have a delicious meal, or you can stay downstairs and eat "tapas". What I like about this place is that they have more variety than just meat, chorizo, tortilla de patatas, etc. They usually have vegetables,... More

We were sucked in by the cracking atmosphere. The joint was jumping but we squeezed to the front of the bar and snaffled a couple of bar stools. We ordered a couple of tapas and were quickly served. This was in the middle of the September Festival and was all done with Spanish gusto. The food was excellent, the drinks... More

A very lively resturant on several levels. As soon as we walked in the secluded entrance and into the bar on the ground floor, there was a positive sense of popularity with the locals, I guess being right in the heart of this beautiful old university town helped? It was so busy we were lucky to find a table for... More
