Our son was studying Spanish in Salamanca and took us to this restaurant on our first night of visiting him. We were charmed from the moment we stepped in and we ordered wonderful cocktails. We were given a beautiful table on the raised section at the front. Jasmine the owner recommended a local wine which was divine and she helped us order the tapas. The portions are so generous that we couldn't believe how much food we had in front of us. Each dish was delicious from an onion filled hamburger, to Iberico ham, subtle fish dishes, risotto, and the list goes on. We had such a wonderful time that we returned to eat dinner there again even though we were in Salamanca for only 3 nights! The bill was extremely reasonable for the quality of food, the exceptional service and the great location. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough.

It's hard to be a vegetarian in Spain, the land of ham-in-everything, but La Boca Abierta makes it easier. Their 10E daily special includes vegetarian choices! When I commented on this, the waitress replied that "she" (the owner, maybe?) is a vegetarian.
The daily special was very good. I liked the veggie lasagne and my husband raved about the ham crepes appetizer.
The menu also lists veggie tapas and main courses, as well as traditional meat dishes.

Relatively new fusion tapas place around the corner from Plaza Mayor. 3 delicious dishes suggested by the waitress (who speaks English). Crispy tempura vegetables, perfectly cooked pork with goat's cheese and thick cut chips and a fresh caprese salad. With 2 small beers, it came to just under €15. Portions were larger than I expected for tapas servings, I could have ordered one less dish but glad I didn't! So good!
