A classic in Valladolid, offering good tender lechazo lamb, made upon the traditional method. Nice morcilla, ham, croquettes and other things, but the point if this restaurant is the lechazo. The wine list is quite limited, with a good number of references from the region, some Riojas and Galician whites and little else. Wine prices are good, as almost everywhere in Spain. Staff is nice in the Castillian way, austere direct, not smiling a lot but kind and efficient.

Are you a serious foodie? Well, this is the perfect place to sample the unique flavours of Castilian gastronomy. The suckling lamb is simply out of this world, traditionally prepared in a wood oven, it is the most tender and delicious lamb you´ll ever taste and an experience you will not forget (might sound slightly hyperbolic but trust me, it is not). Their home made deserts are equally heavenly, i recommend the leche frita and the mil hojas cake. Take a lovely stroll through the leafy Campo Grande Park directly oposite after your meal. A great restaurant, buzzing any day of the week.

We had an excellent meal at this restaurant. It was a truly Spanish experience food and language wise. Our Spanish is limited but we did manage to get over that I wanted a starter as a main course. Our first choice had been pork, but it seemed that pork is not available every evening.We chose the restaurant as it it was only a few doors away from our hotel and we liked the look of the menu, it was certainly a good choice.It was quiet in the restaurant, but we were eating early by Spanish standards and a European cup match was on that evening.

The restaurant "El Figon de Recoletos" is an institution in Valladolid, and justifiably so.

The decor is laid out with gorgeous earth colors and attention to details and the dishes are all presented in original ways (see photos), When we were there, for a Wednesday lunch, the place was packed, but we always managed to grab one of the waiters' attention to get water or bread or additional dishes.

I'll be back.

Every time I come to Valladolid this is a must. A taste you will never forget. The suckling lamb is amazing. The lamb is cooked in the wood ovens and then served up by plates at the table.

Price is reasonable, for this quality of food it's well worth it.

Small choice of fantastic deserts and topped off with pacharan and perrunillas is a must.

Typical Spanish family atmosphere.

Would always recommend!
