Here are a few suggestions of Toledo restaurants where we’re sure you won’t be disappointed.
Address: La Granada 6
This long established favourite is housed in an old Jewish townhouse which dates back to the 15th century. It is located in the heart of the historical centre, just a short distance from the Cathedral, and serves up excellent game dishes such as partridge and venison. Beef, veal and lamb dishes will delight the palettes of meat eaters whilst a favourite amongst fish eaters is the hake in saffron.
Hostal del Cardenal
Address: Paseo Recaredo 24
This is the most famous restaurant in Toledo where you can try typical Castilian roast dishes such as suckling pig and young lamb or a partridge casserole. If you’ve already enjoyed dining in the famous Botin’s restaurant in Madrid then you’ll find the Hostal de Cardenal an equally enjoyable dining experience as it’s owned by the same family. Baked hake and smoked salmon are good choices if you’ve had your fill of meat.
Casón de los López
Address: Sillería 3
For exquisite local fare in the most charming of settings, the Casón de los López takes some beating. Popular dishes from the local countryside include partridge, venison and rabbit served in one of Toledo’s most charming buildings which lies on a small street near the Plaza de Zocódover.
Address: Plaza de San Nicolás 3
Another good choice for a traditional Castilian meal of roast meats or local favourites such as partridge casserole. If you don’t want a large meal you can go to La Abadia and just order tapas with a bottle of wine in the bar rather than going down into the restaurant.
Toledo Parador Restaurant
Address: Cerro del Emperador
If you’re staying at the Parador of Toledo (guests also welcome) you might prefer to return to the hotel to dine. Its restaurant offers a stunning panoramic view over the city and the food isn’t bad either. Typical Castilian fare is available as well as fish dishes and a range of tapas.
