Went here for the famous suckling pig and was not disappointed. It was a spectacle cut into pieces with a plate and served piping hot You must order sides to go with this...we ordered fries but they automatically put a salad and bread on the table which we did not order and were charged for these at expensive prices....so make...

Found out about this place based on a TV show and made sure to take the time to go to Segovia during our last vacations. Visited for lunch at around 2pm. The place was packed with tourists and locals. We had reservations and were seated promptly. We both ordered the cochinillo. They bring you the pig to your table and... More

We ate the local bean soup, which was excellent, followed by the leg of suckling lamb which was good, but not outstanding, and would have been improved by some accompanying vegetables, finishing with pudding. We drank the house red, produced in the owner's vineyard. This was extremely good for a house wine - but at €19 rather above the usual... More

RESTAURANT: pretty, but gets loud because of bigger groups, try to come at less crowded times FOOD: the famous pig was ok: meat was soft but it was too fat plus it was swimming in a sauce of fat SERVICE: people tried hard, but it was not perfect. They want to sell them fancier than they are.

Yes it is a tourist machine. But we were lucky to have come during a special week when suckling pig was on sale at most restaurants in Segovia for half price. The food was excellent and the house wine paired well with the piglet. The local dessert- almond cake - was a nice finish. after such a large meal we... More

Many people recommended Jose Maria, and we looked forward to dinner with a genuine sense of anticipation. The moment we were "greeted" however, things went downhill. Not only is there nowhere to hang your coat, but when my wife asked for a place to put her coat so that it was not hanging over the back of her chair, she... More

We had very good food (chorizo and suckling pig), but very poor and unfriendly service that at times was rude. The dining room is a good sized room that is brightly lit. The pig was very good but presented poorly (although we saw other waiters being much more attentive and providing better service). While the food would be worth a... More

We decided to visit. On a recommendation. It was full of locals with a lovely atmosphere. Well not disappointed tried several wines with the wonderful variety of tapas offered. We could have stayed for hours as we just loved the place. If you want to have great wine and food visit this place.

The only reason we walked into this place was due to the maximum reviews (3000+) on TripAdvisor. This place fails to impress on every count and was the only place in Segovia where we had a poor experience. Extensive wine menu but expensive. Ordinary food with nothing special to crow about. And poor service, although the restaurant wasn't crowded. Avoid... More

Dear customer, we feel if your visit was not what you were expecting. The wines of our menu have a high price as they are all very well known and high quality wineries. Our over 3000 good reviews on Trip Advisor shake our fame, acquired after 34 years of experience. A greeting from the city of the Aqueduct More
