We were able to walk to this quaint establishment from our hotel. It is not what you would expect for a restaurant "in town," as they have done such a good job of making it have a private feel with the layout and landscaping. I felt as if I were out in the countryside. We had a large group and... More

We had an amazing meal with equally perfect cocktails. Odd for us to hear somber Christmas music on the 30th (likely it would play till Epiphany) but once the meal arrived we forgot all about it. I wanted to return the next day and then the morning after that but it was closed for the holidays. I highly recommend it.

We went for an evening meal and it was great - especially the conchita pibil. Relaxed service in lovely surroundings. Highly recommended.

This restaurant was reviewed in the NY Times. It was a great experience. The atmosphere was delightful! Food was good. When I go back to Valladolid I will be there again. Worth going to the Convento across the street. Have been there with friends and as a couple.

The night we went the food was so bad that several people had to send their meals back and the restaurant eventually closed for the night. It was right before the Christmas holiday so maybe their chef was out but my food was so salty it was inedible. The service was terrible.

The place is beautiful and the menu looked interesting. However, the food did not meet the expectations. Expecially the vegetarian dish, a stuffed pumpkin, did not taste of much, was half cold and the portion was quite small. Drinks were also rather weak.

I love this restaurant. It is right across from the Mission San Bernardino which was constructed in the 1500's by the Jesuits. Definitely worth a visit and then a great gourmet meal at Taverna De Los Frailes.

This restaurant is a little more expensive than most in Valladolid but the food is very good. The English spoken is better here and the service is excellent. It is also conveniently located next to the convent if you are going to the sound and light show in the evening.

... which, alas, was a bit disappointing. Two of us enjoyed excellent fish dishes, expertly prepared in wonderful light sauces. We arrived on a very quiet mid-week evening, with only two other parties in the restaurant. Service was cheerful and well-informed. It was well worth the long walk from our hotel in the town center. I can confidently recommend this... More

We enjoyed a wonderful meal on the patio, with a striking view of the San Bernardino Convent. Excellent attention from the staff. Quiet, with tasteful background music. Our meal choices were Pooc Chuc and Conchinita Pibil. Both meals were very good: tasty, colourful and nicely presented. The Cochinita Pibil was a bit salty, but this balanced with a piece of...
