“Good but pricey food”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

Good meal but relatively expensive, we ate from the a la carte menu as we found the choice on the fixed menu limited.

Dinner is served in a traditional dining room with high vaulted ceiling. Our party particularly enjoyed the starter of Cantabrian anchovies with boquerones (served on small bread rolls, sandwich style), a truly excellent pate and scrambled eggs with salt cod. Of the mains the star was undoubtedly the confit sucking pig, the best we have eaten in Spain except in a Michelin starred restaurant. The starter portion sizes were huge so it was a relief that the mains were more "normal" sized.

The dessert buffet was good and extensive. The wine list was also fairly comprehensive with mainly Spanish wines featured.

“Great views and romantic setting”
Reviewed 18 July 2013

The food was just OK, in comparison to a lot of other restaurants in and around Spain, I am sure that you can find better... but...

Where else can you eat in a medieval castle / fortress style setting, overlooking acres and acres of farms as you watch the sun set. We opted not to eat in the indoor dining hall / restaurant, but in the bar / outdoor patio instead. We were not allowed to order off the main menu, but instead had a series of nice tapas and wine. All ok as far as food goes - but the high rating is due to the overall experience, which was fantastic.

If you are staying in the Parador, you can just opt for breakfast and get the same experience (breakfast was included). If you are staying elsewhere, it is interesting to come to this setting and explore...

“Beautiful and relaxing”
Reviewed 12 June 2013

we didn't stay here - and probably couldn't have afforded to, but had a great tapas lunch on the patio. Excellent, high quality tapas and surprisingly affordable - we had three tapas, a salmon baguette, two beers, and two coffees and it came to about 25 euros - we could have paid more at a service station off the motorway. And the atmosphere was wonderful. If you can't afford a room, at least go for a coffee and a wander round the grounds.
