I was there for a business lunch a few years ago, and I have to say that the place is very beautiful. The food is this restaurant is Spanish, traditional, and very tasty: Chefs are excellent and the waiters are very attentive, helpful and friendly. The place is very elegant, classy, and its dome is a truly wonderful if you... More

This is a great location for a meal. As a former convent, the tapestries are remarkable and the seating and decor are so welcoming and authentic. Best to request an English menu or server. Our server was frustrated by our inability to translate the menu and when there was a problem with the rareness of the meat there was some... More

Stunning location for a restaurant, it is an old convent. Food was excellent , had differculty with menu as only had one with some English translation, waiters had no English with the exception of one waiter who arrived as we were finished with some English. Maybe they don't get many tourist speaking English. Food was delicious and wonderful surroundings.

Family group of 7 enjoyed a great meal. The only difficulty was the language translation. While one english menu was available, it would have been better to have 7 of them. A medium steak request was provided rare and, when returned, was replaced by a very rare steak, due to misunderstanding. However, there was no difficulty with a fish dish... More

We have stayed in Alcala on a number of visits now, and always find it an amazing cultural place, but lacking in really good Spanish food restaurants. Tonight, we had our best meal in Alcala by a long way. The restaurant is set within an old monastery and is formal, but with a good feeling in it, and friendly yet... More

Indeed, this was the last of three wonderful restaurants we dined at during a business conference in Alcalá de Henares, Spain. Set in a former monastery, it was easy to lose one's imagination in the atmosphere of its ancient walls, draped with banners and trimmings of an era long past. We ate in a party of about 70, so had... More

Stunning dining room. No atmosphere on account of my party being the only diners apart from one couple who finished there meal a while before we did. Food competent but not great. Staff slightly miserable. I suspect we would have loved it if it had been a bit busier.

This lovely restaurante on the quiet street, c/Santiago, 18 had been a convent in its previous life. We came to celebrate a friend's birthday; it was approximately an hour drive from Madrid. Our superbly presented meals of solomillo (filet mignon) and rapa con langostinos (monkfish with prawns) were tasty with just the right amount of sauces. We added the recommended... More

Located in a a former convent and chapel, beautiful place with great food. The ambience is great, with tapestries hanging from the chapel's walls, and the food is wonderful, the beef is great and the roasted lamb is superb.
