A couple of beers & an afternoon snack was the aim when we reached the square & my wife selected here due to location. The cafe also charged for this location with the meal being the worst value we have had so far in Spain -€11 for 6 chicken wings, & €11.40 for 2 beers. The cafe even charged more... More

My wife and I stopped here on 18 March 2017 for a quick meal before travelling back to Madrid. I would have to say it was the worst meal I have ever eaten or been served during my many travels to Spain. The food was inedible and service was extremely poor. When reluctantly paying the bill, the manageress was bekigerent... More

Stopped here for lunch on our tour. Had Sangria, cerveca and seafood paella. The Sangria was OK, the paella was very good. Our first in Spain so it did not disappoint. We will try some more later in the trip to compare.

The most awfull restaurant. We were stupid enough to sit there. The waitress was very rude, kind of Gestapo way. My son ordered a carbonara spaghetti and I think they were making jokes about it. They brought him HALF a portion!!!! The burger was very oily. Couldn't wait to go away from there. Avoid.

We wanted a breakfast and stopped in El Foro on arriving in Toledo from Madrid early one morning. Went to the 2nd floor and waited and waited for a server -- whose station was near our table -- to approach us. He was curt and rude (and I speak Spanish...not like we were a burden for him). No breakfast menu,... More

Great spot to order a coffee and enjoy with our Marzipan from Santo Tome. It was also a convenient place to wait for our time to board the TrainVision. Attentive service

This is a great location to people watch on the Zocodover square in Toledo. The food and service were both so-so. There are 2 prices for each item on the menu - they charge a higher price if you sit outside on the square.

Despite signs saying Toledo was a centre of food excellence, we found it difficult to find somewhere for lunch. This is situated in the main square and offers pizzas and simple food. Note that it is more expensive to sit out on the terrace than inside. My husband's pizza was average and came a long time after my food. I... More
