Yes it is a tourist machine. But we were lucky to have come during a special week when suckling pig was on sale at most restaurants in Segovia for half price. The food was excellent and the house wine paired well with the piglet. The local dessert- almond cake - was a nice finish. after such a large meal we... More

Many people recommended Jose Maria, and we looked forward to dinner with a genuine sense of anticipation. The moment we were "greeted" however, things went downhill. Not only is there nowhere to hang your coat, but when my wife asked for a place to put her coat so that it was not hanging over the back of her chair, she... More

We had very good food (chorizo and suckling pig), but very poor and unfriendly service that at times was rude. The dining room is a good sized room that is brightly lit. The pig was very good but presented poorly (although we saw other waiters being much more attentive and providing better service). While the food would be worth a... More

We decided to visit. On a recommendation. It was full of locals with a lovely atmosphere. Well not disappointed tried several wines with the wonderful variety of tapas offered. We could have stayed for hours as we just loved the place. If you want to have great wine and food visit this place.

The only reason we walked into this place was due to the maximum reviews (3000+) on TripAdvisor. This place fails to impress on every count and was the only place in Segovia where we had a poor experience. Extensive wine menu but expensive. Ordinary food with nothing special to crow about. And poor service, although the restaurant wasn't crowded. Avoid... More

Dear customer, we feel if your visit was not what you were expecting. The wines of our menu have a high price as they are all very well known and high quality wineries. Our over 3000 good reviews on Trip Advisor shake our fame, acquired after 34 years of experience. A greeting from the city of the Aqueduct More

We made the reservation because it was really crowded. Popular with the locals. Comes with free gifts as well. Cheers

We were here with a group of 21. Service was excellent but the food was even better. We were given a whole tutorial on the suckling, very interesting. They give quite a show on cutting the suckling to serve it. Best pork I've ever had. Not to say that the rest of the meal was also excellent.

Have always wanted to try Spanish suckling pig. Read about this on TA and decided to book it. The place was very crowded, half with tourists and the rest locals. The restaurant was split into a ground and underground section. Would prefer the ground section but we were shown the underground one. Food quality wise was very good. The pig... More

There is 3 things I look at in a restaurant - service food and ambiance. In this restaurant I was not impressed with either one of them. The service was just OK - The waiter was not really interested in us and he spilled red wine on the plate which he did not come back and remove. When it comes... More
