If you want to avoid all those busy "tourist" restaurants in Plaza Mayor or near Aqueduct, this is a place for you to have the suckling pig. We had a quarter size and shared two of us. I'm not a big fan of the suckling...More

OK - so we went to Segovia partially for the lovely cathedral, but also to savor the justly famous suckling pig. Since we were just 3, we decided to forgo the half portion that comes with the piggy head and order a quarter portion of...More

Nothing wrong with the food other than just not hugely special. I must have got a bit overwrought over the suckling pig thing.. Anyway there it was on the Eur 24.90 menu so we had it. A substantial serving... Nice homemade chips(Spain seems to do...More
