Setting: Right close to the Parador. If you have to park, it could be very challenging. Patio is very beautiful and green and you have the sensation to step into a castle Food: it was ok but not on the level what you are paying. The fish starter with bacalao was too fishy for my taste. My steak was cooked... More

Felt like formal Spanish dining. Especially so on a Sunday afternoon with whole family and post-Church goers. The solomillo was excellent with thick green pepper corn sauce. Don't worry about menu saying spicy because it's really not.

Opposite the Parador, close to the Plaza Cervantes. An historic building providing excellent locally sourced food cooked traditionally. Service was excellent and the food delicious. Unfortunately this restaurant is not open on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday evenings. Possibly the best restaurant in Alcalá.

We ate here while staying at the Parador and had a wonderful experience. The confit of pork, lamb rack, and veal dishes were incredible and the service impeccable. The wine list had a great selection of moderately priced Spanish wines. It was a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing evening. Kudos!

Took the family out for lunch and started with a simple plate of croquetas. One had the suckling pig, another lamb and one of us the foie in honey. One boy had the burgers (not in a bun) and the other had the bread covered filete. The important thing here is not to have the Foie in honey unless you... More

This restaurant is a classic Spanish style that belongs to the modern Parador opposite. The quality of the food was very good as well as the service.

One of the best restaurants I've ever been to. The place is very quaint and the service is formidable. The food is stunning, specially the meat dishes.

Our daughter is a student at the university in Alcala de Henares, and we took her and her host family to Hosteria del Estudiante for dinner. Her host parents had had their wedding dinner there, and their daughter celebrated her first Communion there. They told us that Hosteria del Estudiante is by far the best restaurant in town.
