I had dinner here with my family (8 people in total) and we all loved it. We chose the spring menu because the Menu Degustacion was too much food for us for dinner, and we were not disappointed at all. The starters were awesome, very...More

If you love fine dining and can get a booking then make the trip to Pepe's El Bohio near Toledo. We had the El Menu Degustacion plus wines and its been a long time since my tastebuds have danced.

A roadside restaurant in the prehistoric pueblo of Illescas on the road from Madrid to Toledo, El Bohio doesn���t shout ���Michelin star!���, yet it has one. Behind its old wooden front door lies a magnificently cosy dining room boasting neo-Gothic stained glass, dark mirrors, a library, and sombre cast-iron fixtures. Jos�� Rodr��guez is in charge of this gastronomic goldmine, a star chef celebrated for bold, modern yet down-to-earth cooking that���s both ���pretty simple��� (his words) and surprising. Classic dishes are subverted and reassembled into culinary couture. On the world-classEl Bohio menu he invariably has a version of cocido, one of Spain���s oldest dishes. Its cellar has won El Bohio several top awards including ���best restaurant wine cellar in the world��� by a US wine magazine.
