El Bedegon is a true regional experience. They have only four dishes on the menu, and these are beyond good, never had such a great, original and super tasty experience. The most delicious Patatas Bravas with spicy sauce, unbelievable good mussels in their own sauce...More

Beautiful medieval building that sets the scene for one of Ponferrada's most beautiful bars. The food here is traditional Spanish tapas, and the patas bravas really are to die for. All very reasonably priced. This bar is always busy so expect to wait a bit...More

It's a self service restaurant serving only 4 dishes. If you're early or lucky you might not have to wait long for a table. It's very good value and is full of both Spanish & foreign tourists. I don't think many local people eat there...More

Thinking of having a good drink with true spanish potatoes bravas? Well, this place is for you. Super ambience in an underground bar. Would highly suggest you this place in Ponferrada. On weekends the place is super crowded in the evenings.

You have four choices. Patatas bravas, mussels, calamari, or cortezas. It's a great environment. Always seems to be packed by the locals which says something in its favor.

This Place gets really crowded, so that's always a good sign. Hidden away in the old town of Ponferrada, at el bodegón you will find only a few dishes but very tasty. The calamari were especially nice
