The place is perfectly located below the arches of the "plaza mayor" en el "casco humedo". To see and to be seen. At first glance, the menu was a bit strange, a bit off the beaten track of the local cuisine. We however actually enjoyed a very rewarding experience. A so-called lasagne of tuna was actually a wonderful creation made of crispy leaves of brown cereal bread wrapping a chopped slow cooked tuna piece in a spicy brown sauce. Just delicious. The juicy (meloso) rice dishe with vegetable had also very fine notes for the palate. The proposed wine could have been at a better level. The service was friendly and helpful, although only speaking spanish.

On a busy Saturday night we were recommended this restaurant by our hotel. We were sceptical as it is on the main square but I have to say it was fabulous! The atmosphere was superb. Beautiful and interesting decor, great lighting (makes a change for Spain), lovely service....and terrific food and wine to boot. This place is a great experience. Especially good for a younger more metropolitan vibe. Muy bien!!

Located in Plaza Mayor, we visited this bar a couple of times during our stay in Leon.
The staff were friendly, and on our first visit early evening we were given a choice of free tapas with our drinks- which amounted to a bowl of spicy chicken wings and chips- very tasty.
Interesting decor too - particularly the huge blue fluffy rhinoceros head on the wall !

Very creative, stunning decor! Nice tapas. Good for couples and friends. Right on the Plaza Mayor and the old city hall. Lovely surroundings.

Came for lunch and you can see they made a great effort on the interior. But that would better in the evening than for lunch. Happy to recommend the cerviche that was delicious.
