This looked to be the best/most interesting menu in town but we were unable to eat there as (in Winter, at least) the only open for dinner Friday and Saturday. In fact on another evening we were able to enter the building as in fact they had a pre-booked private party, but the staff were warm, friendly and apologetic.

This restaurant provides the perfect hideaway from the busy main plaza, serving high-quality local dishes at a very reasonable price. I visited alone on a day trip to Chinchón, and La Recua was exactly what I was looking for: somewhere quiet and understated that would serve up delicious local food. It's easy to see why this place is popular with... More

This is a lovely restaurant with very helpful staff. We arrived early at 8.30 only to find the restaurant doesn't open until 9pm. We were able sit in the bar though and have a drink until we were able to go through. The food is delicious, not as oily as some Spanish food. We were given a free limoncello afterwards... More

We have visited this restaurant twice now, taking the shared menu de degustation on both occasions. The food is beautifully prepared and presented, and the shared menu ensures that you get a taste of everything. We had a very good Navarra rose to go with it and had no problems with the sizes of the portions. The restaurant is simply... More

We have chosen this restaurant on trip advisor. Nice little restaurant, few tables and simple but comfortable ambient. We went for the closed menu worth 24€ per person, with 3 starters, a main, deserts, but no wine or coffee. First dish was Empanadillas de confit de pato, cigarritos de morcilla y manzana y croquetas caseras. All very tasteful, specially the... More
