More or less by accident we had lunch at the Taberna. We had a superb lunch and service and used the WIFI in the bar to handle our problem (with a hotelbooking). So the Taberna de los Frailes became our rescuestation and all turned out...More

We went there because we wanted to have a nice dinner. Most of the time we felt ignored in favour of some snobby family just because we didn't nag enough. Food was ok but expensive. Go somewhere else.

Food was good - not as spicy or varied as we would have hoped but nice, clean and tasty. Setting is amazing off the street, quiet. Great experience

Nice place, great service. The food itself is OK but honestly the Lime soup they served us was really unspectacular and the least tasty compared to 3 or 4 other places in Valladolid. The rest of the meal was also just fine. The ambient music...More

This place has a beautiful setting but that's the only positive thing. It is a tourist trap where the food quality is not good. The dishes we had were not tasting good and the price/quality was to not good (to expensive). We would not recommend...More
