A window table has a great view over the Plaza Mayor but other than that there is nothing to commend this restaurant. The friendly waiters encountered by other reviewers weren't evident: they weren't unfriendly but rather indifferent in comparison to those we met in other establishments. The menu is uninspiring and expensive. The quality of the food is inadequate: we... More

Busy, friendly place for tapas meals and a good local beer, attracting students, locals and tourists. On the first floor just above the main square, so a very good location.

It is a place with a very friendly atmosphere. This place is not only known for its "tapas", one more feature of this place are its waiters ... they are very friendly.

A wide range of tapas available upstairs and overlooking the Plaza Mayor. Don't be fooled by the stairs you will have to climb. Excellent way to try a new tapa typical of Salamanca and CyL.

Yes, I liked it but I thought the prices were a bit high. Well, maybe not surprising being right on the Plaza Mayor. Still, the food was good. And one of the waiters was kind (the other was a bit of a douche) as he explained the menu in painstaking detail to a British couple who quite literally screamed at... More

Arrive on a rainy Saturday and it was packed to the entrance, but only for the bar. If you are dining, there are 2 rooms - one near the entrance and the other beyond the bar. Be early to get a table by the window and enjoy a relaxing meal watching people in Plaza Mayor. The waiters are very efficient... More

We love this place,having visited it a few years ago,with a friend who lives locally,& introduced us to Cervantes. It's easy to miss..... In a corner of The Plaza Mayor, up steep wooden stairs, which opens out into a buzzing bar & restaurant. It feels so authentic,busy, not so many tourists,mainly locals. A fantastic variety of hot & cold tapas,... More

It has very good omelets many types and the place is old and charming. the problem is that the staff is somewhat older and not very friendly

Traditional and typically Spanish cuisine and courteous service. Not cheap, but good value - 'Menu of the Day' (Menu del Dia) A location to die for - in one of the best 'Plaza Mayor's in Spain. Lunchtime in the shade, and anytime during the evening.....
