We came to Meson Del Cid as we had heard the lamb was superb- we were disappointed as the lamb chops were totally overcooked and small and were dry and crunchy. Also, the roast lamb was somewhat stringy. Nice staff, average ambience. The mixed salad and starters were very nice. Shame about the lamb. The highlight is the view of... More

We went to dinner and we had expected a Spanish Meson-type restaurant, but that is not what we found. This is a modern, clean restaurant, with good food. We had a fish soup, merluza in green sauce and leche frita for dessert. All was very good, service was excellent to the point one of the waiters walked us to our... More

Cost 100 Euros for two courses with win and water, admittedly we did not have the set menu but even so ! Perhaps the set menu would be better ? The food was good though.

I personally highly recommend the Pilgrim menu. It is not cheap but it is typical from northern Spain, as far as I understood. Funny place with waitresses in costume.

Not far from the cathedral, this place is a gem. We sat upstairs overlooking the cathedral. Wonderful local wine. Shared a leek pancake which was actually creamy leeks between brioche bread. One had the hake with a potato wafer on top. I had the entrecote steak with fries and grilled peppers. Done to perfection!

I have tried many restaurants in Burgos to find the best suckling lamb and the conclusion is Meson del Cid. The lamb is very tasty and tender but not dry. I highly recommend it.

Friendly and reasonably priced. The food was of very good quality, in particular eggplants with anchovy stuffing as a first course and the steaks. A good selection of deserts including fruit based mouse. Good wine list. Friendly staff.
