Unbeatable Beef in an exquisite surrounding; the restaurant is underground in natural caves, typical of the area meant to store cereals, wine, oil etc. Frankly a singular experience of lifetome.

Saw the movie "Steak Revolution", and had to see the place for myself. Unassuming at first sight, but you will be amazed how beautiful the place is. Had the prime Chuleta. Simply amazing. It's beef like you never tasted. Cured ox was a treat, and...More

I'm usually skeptical about places that are heralded as "world's best" and the like, but after experiencing a piece of el Capricho beef at a restaurant in Barcelona, I was sufficiently intrigued to convince 4 friends to make the journey from Amsterdam to Leon, Spain...More

I think there is no good connection with public transport, you can always rent a car and spend the night in Leon or a nearby town
