I was staying at the Melia just along the street and wanted a good restaurant close by. This was well reviewed on TA and it turned out to be a classic Spanish restaurant that is famous for the lamb in the area. Cooked in a clay oven it is very tender and full of flavour. My wife and I shared... More

Restaurant was closed when I arrived but they still got me in. Food is a bit salty but that seems to be the case everywhere in Valladolid. Meat was tasty and tender. Service was fast. Would recommend overall.

Despite I visited this restaurant years ago and I didn't have a great experience, I gave a new opportunity and I was not disappointed. Roasted baby lamb and pork are the kings here. We asked the roasted lamb and it was very tender and tasty. You can also taste here one of the best ones of the area that are... More

This is a really pleasant restaurant nicely decorated with the traditional brick oven. The staff were friendly and attentive. Here the specialties are lamb and suckling pig. We had a set menu which included a quarter of a lamb for the two of us done to perfection. I wasn't that thrilled with my garlic soup starter.

An enjoyable meal and I would go back. Only serves traditional Castilian food, with speciality of roasted leg of milk lamb. The meat is served on its own, so it is nicer to also order the offered salad to accompany it.

We came to this restaurant on a Saturday evening at nine. After we seated on the terrace a waiter appeared after quite a while. We asked if we could have dinner. He asked if we wanted tapas, but we asked for the regular menu (which was also posted at the wall). After another long wait he returned with the menus... More

Friends from Valladolid took us for an unforgettable meal at this restaurant. We had morcilla (blood pudding/sausage) for a starter followed by the suckling lamb and salad. The meat was tender and succulent and this is one of the few dishes that one is permitted to eat with the hands, so that every last morsel can be enjoyed. If you... More
