El Bodegon - how more local and typical can you be !? - is the restaurant of the super 'parador', which offers spectacular monastic architecture and sublime courtyards and inner gardens.
The menu is geared around the local specialties.
Dishes come in generous portions and prices are very affordable.
The food is plain good but not 'refined'. This place is special for its 'cocina de la madre', i.e. what you'd eat at home in this region. Pick this restaurant if you want to indulge in the local lifestyle and cuisine. Not if you are looking for fusion, molecular or trendy experiences.
Service is very good, with local waiters and waitresses who take pride in working in such a special place.

Due to most of the meals in Chinchon being very average, the food at the Parador restaurant was excellent. We had 2 lunches and one dinner there. All the food was excellent. I particularly enjoyed the rolled suckling pig. they also had a great children's menu. The dinner was one of the best I had during my visit to Spain.

The food is delicious but the ambience in the restaurant is formal and dull. We have stayed in eight different Paradors and whilst the food at dinner varies from OK to outstanding, the dining room atmosphere is invariably quiet, dull and without ambience.

You already have a good vibe about the restaurant here from the great reception and service received upon arrival and the reviews and comments from friends. Again, as with the hotel, the restaurant was everything it should be, unlike one or two disappointments we have had with other Paradores recently. We booked a table, which was well situated and ready at the time specified. The waiters were very attentive, highly professional and friendly. The menu was so extensive and interesting it was hard to choose, but the modern twist on traditional Castilian fayre worked really well. The wine, from Chinchón itself, was superb and the whole experience, from amuse bouche to digestive (a Chinchón seco) was outstanding. This was not a cheap supper but it was worth every euro. Absolutely recommended!

This Parador is another excellent place to stay.
Sympathetically restored and as you walk around and you can almost feel centuries of history and tradition soaking in to you.
Very impressive.
Did not dine as our experience of Parador food has not been great so no comment on that.
Very small criticism what was an otherwise excellent stay -
I guess housekeeping need to sharpen up a bit?

Mini bar poorly stocked
Only one small bar of soap
Batterys missing from TV remote control
Only two tissues in the tissue box
The intriguing history of the monastery was only shown in Spanish in the public areas and in the bedrooms, shame because we spent ages with our dictionary trying to understand the history.
