We researched the top restaurants in Cuidad Rodrigo and this one came out on top - and there's a reason for that: it is excellent. If you want meat and two veg, this isn't the restaurant for you. The food is top quality, the service is excellent, and the surroundings quaintly different. We had three main courses between two of... More

We were on our way to Portugal, and wanted to eat in ciudad Rodrigo, as it is rated #1 in trip advisor, we gave it a try. Result: fantastic food, environment, quiet, fast. Tasty food. If you are in ciudad Rodrigo, this is must go place. Attention as it is small, advisable to reserve

We stopped for lunch in Ciudad Rodrigo in way to Portugal and I consulted Tripadvisor for restaurants on the area and upon seeing the near perfect rating for this place we decided to give it a try.

We just happened upon this restaurant by chance and wow did we land on our feet. It was not warm enough to sit outside but the inside space is so lovely that it was a pleasure to be there. We ate delicious food from a menu that apparently changes often it was beautifully cooked and presented and we had excellent... More

We stopped in this town on our way from Portugal and looked for a good place for lunch. We looked for top rated spots and Zascandil had great ratings. We were surprised to find a true gastronomical high end experience in this quaint medieval town. The presentation of the menu ( specially the desert menu), the presentation of the dishes... More

We came here for family dinner. We sit on the terrace enjoyed the lovely food. Great wine as well. Perfect service, don't forget to look at the box of desserts.

The first meal we had in this restaurant was so special that we couldn't resist coming again the next day. We started with the Zascandil salad, which was a delicious combination of really fresh greens, walnuts, pine nuts and fruit in a lovely, rather sweet dressing - so not necessarily to everyone's taste but we loved it. This was followed... More

there's nothing ordinary about this place, starting with the decor. we came in expecting this to be a real gamble, and it sure was. almost every item on the menu seemed risky but everything we tasted paid off surprisingly well! the codfish sashimi was brilliant and i can still feel the taste of the rose sorbet that was in our...

A group of 13 of us were on a tour of Spain last week and arrived in Ciudad Rodrigo on the Tuesday. The restaurant is usually closed on Tuesdays but the owner made an exception and opened just for us. Bear in mind our party ranges from people who normally only order steak, to proper foodies and the head chef... More
