This is the best meal I had in Salamanca and indeed one I will remember. The house specialility is meat. We were recommended the solomillo (morucha cattle) which had seared fois gras on top. The mushroom sauce was delicious as was the meat, a speciality reared in Salamanca. As a starter we had asparragos and fried potatoes with ham (as you do not get any carbohydrates with the steaks). Everything was very tasty. We did not stay in the dining area at the back but took one of the marble tables a the front which was then laid out with a proper table cloth. The meal came to 55 Euros including drinks and we paid the rest in tips.

We entered the restaurant and found that there were only locals in the restaurant. Being curious to try out the local Spanish cuisine of tapas, we ordered an assortment of them. It turned out to be excellent choices like the beef steak , a mini burger, liver and ham. None of the menu is in English but the owners were very friendly to help us.

I ate here a few nights ago with two Spanish friends - one of whom has lived in Salamanca for over 15 years - and had an exceptionally good meal, with helpful, friendly but non-intrusive service from the staff including the owner himself. Every dish we had was of very high quality, and cooked to perfection. The menu caters not only to those who relish meat, but also to other tastes. For instance, the appetizers included a delicious dish of wild mushrooms fried in garlic, besides excellent local meat dishes. A variety of fresh fish (hake, turbot, cod ....) was on offer for the main course in addition to the fine meats that other reviewers have mentioned. All in all, a fantastic meal at a reasonable price given the quality of the food and the service.

The tapas bar at the front of the restaurant was busy with locals, and I was told it is a favourite of many who live in Salamanca.

Highly recommended!

This is a great place to experience real Tapas. Frequented by the locals - the tapas are cooked fresh and go quickly - and the service at the bar is typical. The full range of tapas is available - and you can really experience Castille eating from the local sausage - to tripe - to lovely lamb cutlets and pork. Highly recommended.

Well Salamanca was our final stop on a tour of Spain which included Logrono,San Sebastian and Valladolid.
We have had some great food along the way .
The quality of the food here is excellent (try the Merucha), its not cheap but you get what you pay for.
Going back tomorrow.
