El Meson de Candido is a must for everybody visiting Segovia. Located by the aqueduct, Meson de Candido offers fine regional cuisine. Credit Cards accepted. Try the Chorizo a a la sidra and the Cochinillo.

Very famous restaurant, right under the aquaduct. I have seen it from many TV shows. Sucking piglet is good. Pig ear and bean stew was exceptional. But the white asparagus and grilled shrimp were just so so. Service was excellent!
