“Fabulous”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

We sat in this hidden gem for a couple of hours, ate and drank just about everything we fancied and left after paying a € 50,00 bill for the two of us. Places like these show the tripadvisor value, because I went there bases on the tripadvisor rating and I was not disappointed!

“Absolutely superb!!!”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

I had read other comments on trip advisor about this bar restaurant and it did not disappoint. The food was amazing, tasty, plentiful and extremely good value. The service was excellent and friendly. I was glad of the advice on trip advisor about location as maps were not that accurate. The best advice is that it is at the top of the escalators and walk straight forward across the little lane. You can eat in or out - we chose out and it was lovely. We chose the cheese with honey and sultanas - the cheese was a bit like roquefort, but the combination is excellent. We had the local meat platter which is huge and has various meats - all were very good. We had squid which was lightly coated, and we probably did not need this one with the other dishes as they were good portions, even the half plates. And we had the mushrooms, again excellent. These were served up with side plates of different bread slices. Being able to order half plates is very good as you get to taste more of the menu. I would recommend this restaurant!

“Great eat, great price”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

Probably the best restaurant we ate during our Spain trip. Affordable dining, about 30 for two ppl, and you could order every dish in half size. We love the fried vege dish ( fritura verdurad) and pork dish ( codillo de cerdo) . We don't know espanol and the waiter speaks minimal English, so we used our hunch a lot and they turned out to be the best meal.

“Great food, friendly service”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

Having spent almost 2 weeks in Spain, and eaten in a dive the evening before (La Otra Boveda, Sipre 6, Toledo), this was one of the most enjoyable and best value meals the two of us had in Spain. The waiters were friendly, explained to us that we could order half size dishes off the menu so that we could try more things, and the food was excellent. Great atmosphere in the square outside the restaurant, next to the escalators that take you down to puerto del sol. The Iberico pork with onions was superb. Great value.

“So glad we trusted the reviews here!”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

I was with some Spanish friends and they didn't know where to take me for lunch so I looked on here and we picked El Embrujo. It was completely fantastic in every way. The location was perfect with a nice view of a church from the outdoor terrace. The service was very friendly and wonderful. The food was delicious (even the locals said it was extremely good) and was very reasonably priced. Would definitely return again if I am back in Toledo!
