They take advantage of their reputation in order to over charge in ALL their dishes. Not only in the cochinillo, which tastes really good, but in normal stuff like the desserts: 7€ for a poor quality in some of them. They know they are gonna be full everyday so thats why they don't care about price or details in general.... More

With a great location very close to the 'aqueduct' this restaurant could have lost its character and become 'touristy' but the restaurant and English speaking staff have maintained a great welcoming atmosphere with excellent quality food at a reasonable price.

We ate a late lunch at Meson Casa Candido. It is located next to the ancient Roman aqueduct. If you’re able to get a window seat on the second floor facing the aqueduct, it offers a great view. There were 11 in our party and we were offered the “tourist special”. It included bread, a salad or soup, a generous... More

We were on the one day Avila and Segovia tour booked through Viator and delivered by Julia travel. We had an hour free time for lunch and decided to go to this place located near the Aqueduct and recommended by Maribel's guide to Segovia which I found on the web. First of all, it is not cheap but we knew... More

After trying suckling pig at Botin in Madrid, we decided to visit Segovia the next day to try some REAL suckling pig. Did my research on TripAdvisor the night before, only to find out I could have gone to sleep sooner as the bus company La Sepulvedana offered a packaged deal which included return coach fare ( normally 15 euros...

Nicely decorated touristic restaurant under the aquaducts of Segovia. We all tried different meals in lunch without having information about what they are. Lamb is served without any side vegetables. Chicken with asparagas is the only delicious meal for both of us. Its very expensive and worths value just for the atmosphere.

I am sorry for just 1 star, which I would give for the nice interior and view from window. Visited for dinner and ordered two beef beefsteaks, one well done and other medium, but they were really identical. For 17,10€ a plate, this looks and tastes really poor. You get same food much tastier in Madrid as part of 10€... More

You did not experience Castilia y Leon and your visit to Segovia is not complete if you don't eat at Meson de Candido. This restaurant is in the family for many generations and the photos inside tell the story of many historical figures and famous people visiting it. Lamb, veal and fish are all great but the place is famous... More
