I unfortunately witnessed a public humiliation from the owner of the restaurant with a coulpe of customers who entered to see the menu and didnt’ stay. The owner started shouting and yelling at them for no reason, which made me and my family extreamly uncomfortable....Do not spend your money or time on a place that will ruin your day!More

This is a great local restaurant with traditional/local dishes. We tried our luck without a reservation and had no issue, they moved some tables around and welcomed us. The waiter spoke good English which was really helpful but politely asked us if it was necessary...as we have a small amount of Spanish - always great to be able to use English if there is uncertainty. We both had the equivalent of a menu del dia - suckling pork for my husband and I had breaded pork - both excellent. The starter of a local soup was delicious as were the deserts. We left having enjoyed a fabulous meal with great service. Thank you very much.More

We stopped here for lunch on a day trip to Segovia from Madrid, after reading positive reviews on Trip Advisor. The daily menu for 12€ came with two courses, plus unlimited beverages (water or wine), and dessert. The food was delicious, the portions were generous,...and the atmosphere was great. Clearly more of a locals place than a tourist place, which we enjoyed. Would 100% recommend stopping here for a meal while in Segovia!More

We ordered the 3 course menu of the day. Lots of choices for all three courses plus wine. All of our choices were excellent. We especially liked the soup “Judianos de la granja”, a rich stew of large white beans, and pork. Also had a...great salad of the day. Dessert menu is huge. We left stuffed and happy for the super reasonable price of 23Euros total. FYI, we arrived at opening for lunch, it filled up with locals within an hour.More

Everyone else in the small restaurant appeared to be local couples and families. The service was unbelievable and it really felt like a home cooked meal with friends. The fixed price lunch at 11.5 E was a great deal and a feast including plenty of...wine (or other drink), soap or salads of several types, many entres to choose from and an unbelievable choice (like maybe 10) of typical Segoviano deserts. There were many choices for each part of the meal but the staff showed us photos on their phone, helped us pick dishes and each one was a delight. I highly recommend California Bar for a delicious and very typical Spanish lunch.More

We came here for lunch and had their daily menu for 11 euro. Place was full, with almost only local people. We didn't have a reservation, but since we got there a few minutes before opening time, they found a table for us. The staff...were extremely nice, and one of the waiters spoke good English and helped us with the Spanish menu. None of the main dishes were vegetarian, but some of the starters could be turned into vegetarian, and since I'm vegetarian, they let me take two of them instead of a starter and a main course. The food was interesting, and felt fresh, but it's not exactly our taste in food. Still, we really enjoyed the atmosphere and the experience as a whole. Recommended if you want to try local food.More

Glad that I have picked this restaurant for celebrating the birthday of my brother while we were travelling in Spain for holiday. The managers/waiters were very professional, efficient and friendly. They helped us in enjoying a nice lunch, plus the celebration, while we could still...meet at the time of pickup as set by our guide. Everything so smooth and good. Thank you, California Bar. Certainly, the food was good, too.More

Honestly, I think I couldn't have picked a better place to lunch in Segovia. I went there because I read they had gluten free options, and when I told them they were very conscious about it. I ate the "cochinillo" (roasted pig) and it was...an absolute delight. I gotta say the dish was a too much for myself, but the flavors and everything was perfect. 100% recommended! PS: the restaurant is usually full, think about booking before. I went on a Sunday without reservation, but I got there like 5 minutes after opening time and fortunately I got a table. I saw about 3-4 couples/families that could not get a table right away and they had to wait or leave.More

Menu del dia 11€ Great quality and variety of dishes. They also have a menu with the roasted baby pig for 28€, a very good deal when you add another plate and desert with house wine for the price. Very good with children and an...instant favorite for my family. Small place with only about a dozen tabels inside, so a reservation is a good idea. Take a chance and go to this barrio Restarant instead of the typical tourist place, you will be happy you did! BTW the desserts are the best!More
