This man is a true chef and you will notice the many newspaper clippings that are posted on the walls. The food here has a distinctive flavor and flair- it seems more ethnic, more Spanish, more real and local. It will stand out over some of the other places that you have eaten in Spain. You will notice this right... More

This is an excellent Tapas bar. It also has a very small intimate dining room offering good value simple food. Very friendly staff and regulars but no English spoken, Refreshingly Spanish. Won several awards for their selection of wines.

This place is on a side street, and bit hard to find. There are daily "menu of the day", and a special menu if you want to try the suckling pig that costs more. Be sure to try the suckling pig. It's so soft and juicy! One of the specialties to try in Spain!

Excellent food, home-made and at a very good price. The place is most famous for its wine selection.

We day-tripped to Segovia from Madrid, and wanted to eat lunch while we were there. We had heard good things about this place and wanted to try it. It is off the beaten path, two blocks past Plaza Mayor on Calle Valdelaguila. It is a bit hard to find, but well worth the trouble. We arrived earlier than the usual... More

After reading the reviews on here and being told by friends that I needed to try cochinillo by friends I decided to come here while visiting Segovia for the weekend. When I arrived it wasn't too busy but still a few locals, the waiters showed me to a table and after ordering from the 'menu tipico' I waited probably less... More

Regardless of what anyone thinks of the food, I’d avoid this place on principal until they change the way they treat their customers. We just got back from La Cueva de San Esteban and we won’t be returning. The food is descent enough. It’s nothing spectacular and not a great value, but for a touristy area it is about what... More

I have visited Spain, and Segovia numerous times. In Segovia I always end up eating at La Cueva de San Esteban - because the food has always been excellent and the service superb. The Cochinillo is the best I've eaten and better than anywhere in Madrid. The staff has always been very pleasant and by chance I always get the... More

Late October is a slow period and the place was empty when we arrived for dinner. We were impressed by the two large "Eurocave" wine refrigerators sitting by the bar: The red wine would not be some shade of "warm" this evening. We started with the house pate and a mixed salad. Both were huge. When the waiter saw our... More

We visited this restaurant on the advice of a famous guidebook. A little out of the way and indeed as its name says a cave-like environment. Honestly, it is hard to beat a price of 24 euros, for a massive plate of soup, suckling pig (the local specialty) with fries, a great dessert and a bottle of wine divided among... More
