“Delicious, beautifully served”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

As hotel guests for four nights, we dined twice in the atmospheric dining room of this old family castle. Javier has assembled a solid wine list with a couple of dozen crianzas, reservas and a dozen gran reservas - many from the immediate area. Dinner was so good on our second night that I made notes. Javier started off with complimentary sweet red bell peppers (lightly sauteed in olive oil, garlic, parsley and a few grains of sea salt), and delicious potato and chorizo soup. We then ordered the mixed vegetables as our appetizer; they really understand "farm to fork" here - the dish was easily large enough to share with very fresh peas, carrots, artichoke hearts, a few small white asparagus tips and a touch of Iberian ham. My friend enjoyed bakalao (cod) prepared with tomato and sweet red peppers, while I had the entrecote, a thin beef steak prepared medium rare. Our entrees came with a complimentary, lightly dressed green salad. For dessert we considered several options. The arroz con leche is Javier's grandmother's recipe, but he suggested a puff pastry with apples thinly sliced on top of a custard flavored with a little Calvados. It was perfect, not gooey, and the touch of apple liqueur was just right. Great evening!

“Excellent dining”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

We stayed at Hotel Castillo El Collado and had read on TripAdvisor many favorable reviews of the restaurant there. We had three meals there and they were excellent. I can recommend the oxtail whole-heartedly. The wine list was amazing.

“Take the tasting menu!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Food is very good, the tasting menu offers good value for money and allows you to try several dishes. If you take a single dishes you may end up paying much more.
