We wandered around the town centre on a Sunday evening, looking for a simple tapas style place. Of course nothing seemed to open before 8.30pm. We settled on this place because it had a nice outdoor covered terrace. We were shown to a table with a heater on the wall above. Although we asked about tapas, we got the standard... More

I've been with my mother and we had the Lubina and Cogote de Merluza, both amazing cooked and delicious. Also, we tried the Pastel de Avellanas and Cheese Ice Cream, which were marvelous! Highly recommended!

Very good service, very good food. The best option is to have the main menu order, where you could taste different local dishes from the region.

Lunching just on tapas we stopped here and it was a great choice. A wide range of pinchos tapas and rationed all served fresh and hot. A great view of the kitchen where you can watch the chefs displaying their skill. A very enjoyable experience.

This place is centrally located and positioned just off the plaza mayor. I've eaten here twice over the years and on both occasions I've had good food and an enjoyable time. The first time involved a large family group and the second time a smaller outfit but children involved on both occasions. The settings were informal, both times in the... More

One of the best restaurants in Valaldolid. You can eat some "tapas" or in the restaurant service. The food has a very high level (it's really delicious) and good amount. One of the best restaurants of valladolid. (Sorry if my English is not very good)

Had a dinner there twice. First time a tapas plate was acceptable, my friends (a couple) enjoyed their jamon and duck. Their lamb did not look appealing but was OK, I guess. Next day I went there on my own - a very regrettable choice. My jamon was not dry, it looked like they kept it in some hot place... More
