We return to this place every some years, always in one of our trips between Barcelona and Santiago de Compostela. Food is always great, service had its ups and downs along the time, but this time we were very well attended. Will not be our last visit.

Honestly I was treated like a dog since I entered the restaurant. The waiter was rude but I decided to stay and try the food. It was a bad decision. The food wasn't good and the service took hours. It made me really sad.

I tend to avoid restaurants where there are pictures of the food on the advertising boards. Around the Cathedral area every other restaurant had pictures of about the same thing; roast chicken, roast pork ribs etc. The roast chicken on then menu here is particularly good value at €8.50 for half a chicken and comes with home made chips.

The place is cozy and nice to have a meal. The service isn't as good as the food unfortunately. I had something they call "Olla podrida" which would stand for something like "the rotten pot". It's not mouth-watering, i know but it is delicious. I would recommend it! Too bad staff aren't friendlier.

Due to its location on the Cathedral plaza, this restaurant is populated with tourists and at best, average service. The restaurant was not very busy, but the waitstaff were not very engaged. We enjoyed our meal, which was well prepared, but tired of trying to find our waitress throughout the evening and finally flagged another down, paid and left without... More

It is Sunday evening and most restaurants are shut and this is close to my hotel. Despite the view outside I sat inside because it is a cold evening. The decor is dated and the service sporadic, slow and unfriendly despite there only being 16 other diners. There are no vegetarian main courses so I ordered the lamb and as... More

Nice view of the cathedral from this restaurant. The food was good. Excellent gazpacho and blood pudding soup the chicken was greasy and the chips soaked in fat.

We went to this restaurant because severaly years ago we ate here and had a good meal. The restaurant has a terrace where you can eat and have a good view of the Cathedral. However it was hot the day we went there and so we chose to eat indoors, where there was air conditioning. The dining room was very... More

I should know by now that most restaurants next to major tourist attractions tend to be very average but the menu looked OK and the prices weren't too bad. Service was excellent with the serving staff dealing with my attempts at Spanish with patience. The food however was no more than average. Oily scrambled eggs (tasty enough but heavy on... More

Came here for dinner last night, were a bit early (8:30pm) so were able to get a table on the patio overlooking the Burgos Cathedral. Ordered a bottle of Verdejo and a tomato salad and Garlic Soup (Castillan style) to start. The tomatoes were really fresh, but the soup was AMAZING! T was our first time trying this local dish...
