To go to Toledo is quite a gastronomical experience. In my case, it was one of the best gastronomical experiences I have ever had. Like that.
They recommended this place located in the old part of the city. For starters, the style is really nice since you feel like you are inside a cave. It has low tables with stools in the lower part of the restaurant. Upstairs they have another space, but we preferred to be in the tavern.
The menu had many options, but we chose to eat tapas: creamy boletus croquettes, duck with mango and chili sauce rolls, fried eggplant with honey sauce. I have to say that the first two tapas were truly delicious. The boletus croquettes were splendid; I want to go back to Toledo to eat them again. As a dessert we had the chocolate coulant with wild berries and cheesecake with cookies; both were perfect.
We were two persons and the portions were very satisfying, I also want to say that the waiter was very nice, he recommended us many things and he was very kind and attentive, I loved the service.
It was 15 € each, very well prices. Don’t leave Toledo without eating in this place, really!
You will never have a bad meal in Toledo, rest assured. But there are some places that, for some reason or another, are better known. This is the case of La Abadía, restaurant of one of the most famous hotel owners of the city, which has opened various places. This one is very interesting.
It is even fun to get there, since you have to walk along narrow streets of the old downtown. In the first floor you can have a couple of beers in the bar. And in the lower floor, the best part: the caves.
The food is fantastic, with a touch of originality and modernity while respecting traditional and local food. They have tasty appetizers and mains dishes that are based on hunting prey. It is a good place to go with friends to have a nice evening.
Exquisite music, delicious wine. Toasts, salads, rice and pasta dishes in the very heart of Toledo. A cosmpolitan touch with a flavour of New York about it. 4 amazing wines (Etien, Ribera del Duero), salad toast and coffee for 22 euros. October 2012. I liked it a lot, and the customer service was good too!
There is a restaurant in Toledo that really caught my attention because of the fame it has. It is located in a beautiful building of 1924 that has two floors and is in front of the cathedral. You can find everything that goes beyond your imagination. It is no ordinary restaurant. It has a wine cellar, traditional tapas, bar, shop, gifts, cheeses, olive oil, species and dishes prepared with innovative and healthy recopies.
This place closes on Mondays, so I could only spy through the window and read the signs.
According to my friend who lives in Olot who has already been there, the food is “to die for”, although a bit expensive but worth it. They suggested the braised partridge with a house wine and as a dessert a chocolate and orange mousse. She said both were exquisite and just hearing about it made my mouth water. You’d better book if you want a table!
This is a bakery where you can enjoy the rich marzipan of Toledo, both as cakes and sweets. It also offers an extensive lunch and dinner menu. There is a terrace equipped with heaters for you to keep warm and, inside, there are three floors.
Located in the heart of Toledo, this restaurant offers a well priced lunch menu: its “anti-crisis menu”.
The servings are not very big, but since its cheap... We liked all the appetizers. From the main dishes I prefer the meatballs, which were very good.
I loved the decoration. I read that they also organize concerts, even though it seemed to me that the place was quite small.
For me, this is one of the most charming places in Toledo and I always make a stop there whenever I go back to the city to visit my family.
It is a bar located in an ancient inn that has been completely restored but that has preserved the small details. You can imagine yourself living in a completely different age once you cross its main door into the magnificent patio with stone fountains and wooden balconies.
Afterwards you enter the inn itself where the main bar is. Just looking around is a real pleasure, it’s like having a drink in a monument of touristic interest.
It’s nice to go in the afternoon for a coffee and to have a drink. The atmosphere at this time is familiar or with couples, but when night comes things change: there are three bars and it’s a good party place. I like it both by day and night.
To get there, if you are not familiar with Toledo, is to ask for the San Martín Bridge. About a kilometer from there is the Venta del Alma. It is better to go by car and there are plenty of parking spaces around.
Don’t miss it if you are in Toledo. Moreover, Alberto is always there taking care of his customers: you can ask for him and he will help with anything you need or any questions you have about the city. I really hope that you like the place as much as I do.
As stated in the name, this cafe-snack bar is very close to the mythical Plaza Zocodover. This could lead you to believe that the prices will be high and the food bad. Nothing could be further from the truth. This is one of the only coffee shops around the historic centre of Toledo that doesn't have excessive prices and where you can have some beers and patatas bravas (for example) without being robbed. It is quite noisy and always crowded, a fact that is missing from most of the bars in Toledo, that are too tourist oriented at the weekend. Recommended.
On our trip to Toledo we found a very nice place to eat with great service, very fast and friendly. We ate very well, only 30 euros for two people, I'd advise eating here since the city is so touristy and there are so many worse places! It is located in the Plaza San Juan de los Reyes, in the Old Town.
The Café de las Monjas is a delicious cafetería that has an original display cabinet with some nuns making the famous marzipan from Toledo.
Its location is perfect. After visiting the Santo Tomé Church, where there is “The Burial of Count Orgaz, you have to stop here to replenish yourself.
It has a great variety of traditional candy, and you can also have hot chocolate with churros. The place is very modern and spacious. The best part: the candy and the super kind vendors.
It is recommended by the Toledo locals. The best thing is to go on a weekday, when it’s not so full and to try the carcamusas, a typical meat dish.
The lunch menu offers is less than 15 €. Another recommended dish is the white beans, which is similar to the bean stew from Asturias.
Today I went with my family to celebrate in a special place. After searching for a restaurant in Madrid, since we all felt in a festive mood we decided to go out of the capital and visit one of the corners that we have discovered here in minube (Carranque Archeological Park) and we wanted to complete it with a good meal in Toledo.
If you want to give yourself a treat near Madrid and with the best views in Toledo, this is a great choice of restaurant. There is not much to complain about the place, maybe I would have wanted to have more options in the menu, but nothing is perfect.
The dining rooms extend along the building with great windows that allows you to enjoy the view of the old part of the city, a true spectacle especially if the day is clear and sunny. The service is good, of course, and they greet you with olives and salmorejo, which was quite good. In the menu they have some sharing options. For us it was perfect since we like sharing.
We chose a plate of cheese and cold meats and they were really good! Also some codfish croquettes which were also delicious. They accompany everything with bread.
I really recommend you the whole wheat bread with nuts and raisins, it was really good. As a main dish we had the partridge with onion confit, steak with mustard butter, duck with sauce…also we decided to try one of the house’s desserts: “ponche toledano”, which is a cake covered with marzipan. It is perfect for those with a sweet tooth.
We didn’t order wine, only a couple of beers and coffees. It was 40 € each. I think that is ok, because of the quality-price relationship. They have a lunch menu of 33 Euros each that includes an appetizer, a main dish and dessert.
The beverages and bread you pay separately, so I guess you end up paying what we did.
We really didn't know where to eat so we decided on this restaurant, which we didn't regret at all because it was very good and typical food. I definitely recommend it for the typical cuisine and the price.
