Waiter obliging. Tried his best and his English was way better than my Spanish Drinks reasonable but beware buy your kids Spanish beer it is 50c cheaper than 7up! Steak and Lamb cooked quickly and well. Highlight vegetable plate with asparagus, artichoke onion all chargrilled. Thanks

Admittedly, we went for lunch on what has probably been one of their busiest days this year with crowds of metropolitans from the capital swamping Soria for a long weekend. The place was packed, the service crew overstretched and sometimes lost, although striving to stay calm and in control. Signature dishes were not available. Our orders came late and cold.... More

Found this restaurant from the front desk at the Parador. The food was cooked to perfection. I ordered the leg of lamb, which I'm not a fan of lamb but had heard it was made well. This experience was a 180 from a fatty meat. The outside gastes like crispy chicken skin the inside was nice and moist but not... More

Very good meal, the fish and steak were cooked to perfection, reasonable priced wine very attentive service. House special dessert is Tarta Costrada, do try it, its yummy, also you get a very large drink on the house before you depart, in all a very good night out.

I'm an eleven year old girl and I thought there was little choice and and it was a bit pricey. But the food was good (My fave was the Gambas al Ajillo). But overall i have to say i would reccomend it.

Pricey but the revuelto was excellent. Seeing a relatively limited menu I felt confident it was going to be the kind of place you could get quality food and decent service. It was busy and full of locals, always a good sign.

this is a lovely restaurant on the Plaza Mayor in Soria. The food is very traditional with a small but good quality bar menu. Everything was good but expensive. I loved the revuelto paticularly. The service was good but unusually in a Spanish restaurant, we had to ask for coffees despite it being quiet. I would recommend this place.

This is a classy bar with a couple of restaurants. They serve giant steaks, more like prime ribs. Very busy & congenial atmosphere. I look forward to visiting again.

Had lunch and dinner here. The food was delicious and portions were generous. This is a busy spot on the plaza mayor and you may have a wait for service if eating outside in the square. My experience was of a relaxed eatery with good food.
