We visited several places during our three-day stay in Salamanca, and this place was one of our top three. We were eating tapas and trying wines in the front bar area, which has a decent size bar and then several high tables. Although the bar was almost full, the lone waiter was friendly and efficient. We ordered three different tapas:... More

It took a while for me to get here, but it was worth it in the end! It's shut on Sunday night and Monday. The first time I came, it was full of locals in the bar area, and this is where I sat and had the menu al día - excellent value and really good food - 5 lovely... More

Encouraged by the Lonely Planet guide recommendation and a high Trip Advisor rating, we went there for lunch. My high expectations were significantly exceeded: each of the half dozen tapas we ordered was either very good or (more often) delicious. I was particularly impressed with the octopus carpaccio and the mini lamb burger. The wines did not disappoint, either (we... More

If the locals are in there is is usually a good sign, we got a seat by the bar and tried a variety of tapas with local wine except for her ladyship who is a gin drinker and this bar sold gin, not all do. Good attentive service and good variations of tapas. The place filled up so quickly with... More

This place is the authentic local tapas scene. It gets packed by 8.30pm with locals eating a wonderful range of tapas & drinking wine & beer. The tapas pre made behind glass on the bar are fresh & delicious & even more exciting offerings are available to order. There is a menu in English & the busy staff are nevertheless... More

We had a great meal, friendly and professional service. Isabel took good care of us. Many locals.. not your typical tourist trap. We had traditional tapas and the solomillo,which was cooked just right as I requested. This was our 5th visit. The deserts excellent. We just wanted a couple of glasses of wine and the waiter suggested 1/2 bottle which... More

We had a disappointing meal in a touristy restaurant on our first night in Salamanca so we looked at TA and found this delightful place the following day. It was a wet and windy Tuesday evening and we arrived just as they opened at 8pm. We were warmly welcomed and ate in the restaurant which soon filled with locals who... More

our group (incl spaniards) went here on the repeated advice of a few locals. large group and thus able to sample a large portion of the menu. setting inside for semi-formal dining is nice, service quick and warm, and most dishes were excellent... ...but special words are reserved for the young pig (cochinillo) - simply otherworldly. crisp skin contrasted with...

We chanced upon this restaurant on the Grand Via. Very friendly staff, we even managed some conversation though my Spanish is poor and they did not speak English. We tried a few dishes and they were all fresh cooked and excellent quality. Solomillo tapas was perfect. We went to other bars and restaurants but on the second night we went... More

It's definitely the best restaurant in Salamanca!!! It's not cheap but it's worth the money. Their solomillo tapa was the best mini steak I have ever eaten.
