We had a very pleasant evening in the courtyard restaurant (bookings required in summer season though it did not look entirely full to us (there is also an interior restaurant little patronized in the evenings in summer and a smallish cafeteria/bar which seemed noisy) starting our dinner in daylight and finishing in the dark with lighting exploiting the potential of the location.

My wife had pulpe a la parilla (octopus to me, not a fan as it happens) which she pronounced exceptionally good and I had suckling pig (cochinillo confitada y Asado) which was beautifully cooked, very tender and with crackling which melted in the mouth. Our starters were good, but unmemorable (except that one was served with something which was indicated as trumble on the menu and had consistency like crumble, in this case with some finely chopped chorizo mixed in). The wine list was adequate and we had one of the less expensive (Senoro de Morate) which was however a good choice at 23E

Staff were polite and efficient rather than friendly or helpful, but we put that down to shyness as their English seemed to be only slightly better than our Spanish. Overall a very pleasant evening and we would happily return. Total cost without the wine 85E for two - not cheap, but we felt it good value for money.

I have experinces several parador stays in toledo,Cuenca,Alarcon,Almagro,Leon,Santiago de compostela.
Parador de chinchon was not good in comparing to others.
we have to always wait at the reception because there is not enough stuff.
If you have a car, you have to pay 19 euro per day for garage where is located 300m away.
The wall of the room is so thin and other guest's voice and water sound may disturb your sleep like a cheep hotel.
You may not have better choice if you want to stay in Chinchon.
But I think you need not stay for visiting this small town.
I cannot recomend to stay Parador de Chinchon not worth for
it's expence.

We visited the Parador on a day trip from Madrid with some friends for a coffee and cakes etc. we are 'Amigos de Paradores', and try to visit Paradors whenever we can because of the beautiful building and excellent service etc. On this occasion however, we found the service terrible. We waited for a long time, the waitress was quite rude and then when we tried to pay they were very inflexible. She wouldn't accept my Tarjeta Amigos because it seemed like too much trouble and made up an excuse. It's such a shame because in every other Parador the staff go out of their way for you. The building is beautiful however, which makes it worth visiting.

The parador in Chinchon has a lovely ambiance and the daily menu is a good choice for a reasonable price. The staff speaks English and is very helpfull in advising.
