Went here during a lovely day trip to Toledo. Nice view outside and fantastic inside. Service was great, and the steak (bife de limo) probably in the top 3 I've ever eaten. At the higher end of the pricing but we knew that going in and certainly got a great meal with a bottle of wine for 70 Euros, so... More

Quietly located close to the El Greco museum, this small scale restaurant offers everything you need. Very friendly service, high quality dishes, affordable wines, cosy atmosphere. Dishes are local with an international twist and very well prepared and presented. We spend approx 110 euro for the full experience (3 courses, wine, water, coffee, aperitive). Make sure to make a reservation... More

Food was delicious service very poor and in definite rude. Perhaps someone can visit it not though after 15:00. Plates are quite expensive.

Dear Adamantios, We are very surprised with your opinion because we inform you that we close the kitchen at 4pm and you came to have lunch at 15.50. We kindly prepared the dishes you would like to try and we talk so long about wines, typical products of Toledo, we shook hands...in fact you wanted to come back this evening... More

We fell onto this restaurant by chance and it was a really great surprise. Service was impeccable, the owner really had an eye for details (eg he saw that sunlight was blurring wife's face so he moved the table just enough to bring us back to the shade). Cuisine was delicious, would recommend the pork dish with curry and potatoes.

My husband and I had two dinners at La Orza. The dishes we had included pulpo a la plancha (grilled octopus) with mashed potatoes which was delicious, cordero asado (roasted baby lamb) which was very good but could have used some au jus from the meat drippings to make it better, magret de pato (duck) which was quite tasty, and...

WE asked our hotel for advice on a great place to go and we were told this place so I looked on trip advisor and confirmed it looked good. WOW what a different experience and yummy. Everything we ordered was phenomenal. WE spent about 70 euro so be aware it is not your cheapo tourist restaurant. Great place.

In all fairness we were only in Toledo for 2.5 days so we only had three dinners there but we did our research and found the top three based on reviews from other fellow TA reviews. This was by far our favorite due to quality of the food, creativity of the food and great service, It is unpretentious and quite... More
