Although very little English was spoken, the chef was enthusiastic and helped us through a superb menu. My wife started with a speciality salad and I had goats cheese on a bed of mushrooms. She followed with hamburger and I had a beef dish which I think was tongue on a bed of potatoes, the texture and flavour was great.... More

We often visit Ciudad Rodrigo from our home in Portugal but until last Tuesday had missed this cosy welcoming restaurant just off the Plaza Mayor in the old town. The food and service by the extraordinary couple, Antonio at front of house and Maria in the kitchen is sublime. The menu , with a perfect mix of local produce is... More

We researched the top restaurants in Cuidad Rodrigo and this one came out on top - and there's a reason for that: it is excellent. If you want meat and two veg, this isn't the restaurant for you. The food is top quality, the service is excellent, and the surroundings quaintly different. We had three main courses between two of... More

We just happened upon this restaurant by chance and wow did we land on our feet. It was not warm enough to sit outside but the inside space is so lovely that it was a pleasure to be there.

The first meal we had in this restaurant was so special that we couldn't resist coming again the next day. We started with the Zascandil salad, which was a delicious combination of really fresh greens, walnuts, pine nuts and fruit in a lovely, rather sweet dressing - so not necessarily to everyone's taste but we loved it. This was followed... More
