Restaurants we recommend
Here we have compiled a list of our top 5 favourite restaurants. The list also includes our favourite, most local dining options.
These are some tips for those who are not so familiar with the Spanish culture:
1 - Lunch is the main meal of the day in Spain and it is usually served between 13:30 and 15:30. Restaurants are normally open for dinner between 21:00 and 23:00. You will find that many restaurants don´t open on Monday nor Sunday evening.
2 - As lunch is the main meal of the day, and we are in a rural area, it may be challenging to find a restaurant open for dinner Sunday to Thursday outside the summer months.
3 - Portions are normally large. Spanish people like sharing food, and this is what we recommend - sharing plates - specially in traditional bars and sidrerías, where portions are normally large and are called raciones (large tapas).
Although we do our best to make sure that the information on our website is up-to-date and correct, the opening times we provide should be considered a guide. Opening times may vary from season to season and occasionally restaurants may change their opening times without giving notice. If you are interested in going to a particular restaurant on a particular day, please let us known, and we will be happy to check with the restaurant directly and make the reservation for you.
These are the places we go to when we don´t feel like cooking nor driving far:
