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!

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

This is a little gem of a tapas bar tucked away into a far corner of the atmospheric hilltop town of Toledo. The food and wine was amazing and the prices are just short of amusingly low. The two of us ate grilled cuddlefish (sepia la plancha) and grilled vegetable, had five glasses of vino tinto, several "complimentary tapas" and... More

4 adults and one kid ate for 63 e. can u beat that? It was tasty. We ate mushrooms, iberico ham, salad, pork entree and blue cheese. We sat outside and enjoyed the sun down cool. The waiter was knowledgable and guided us through the menu. He even encouraged us to stop ordering and halve a couple orders. Nice food... More

Armed with the free "Planeta Toledo" map we left our hotel in search of TripAdvisor's top-listed restaurant....Embrujo. Weaving our way through the narrow cobble-stoned streets of the historic walled city we arrived at the point where Embrujo was indicated on the map. It was nowhere to be found! Bemused locals came to our rescue and explained that the map was... More

A simple Taberna, but with a lovely outdoor seating area (quite rare in Toledo). You can order the Raciones by the halves (so half the amount half the price). Our waiter talked us out of ordering 5 dishes between 2 of us, and he was right, 4 halves was plenty. Food was delicious, and beautifully presented. This was not a... More

The last tapas or toastas restaurant we visited on our trip to Spain was one we thought most highly of, for all the above reasons. Recommended by the front desk at our hotel, the Fontecruz, it was well worth a relatively long, meandering walk. Unpretentious , unassuming, and un-touristy, our meal was unhurried and uncomplicated, neither by our incomprehension of... More
