We went to Jose Maria on our second night we heard the suckling pig was the best here. Well it did not disappoint; we were seated down stairs and the waiter was friendly and efficient. We both ordered the suckling pig as well as others from other tables, the head chef came down from the kitchen and treated everyone to a show of chopping up the pig with a plate and making each person's portion it was a terrific thing to watch. The pig was moist, crunchy and delicious we really enjoyed our meal and the show. Would definitely return to this restaurant when visiting
beautiful Segovia.

The cochinillo was one of the best I had. I'm from the Caribbean Island of Puerto Rico, grow up eating pork. Been in multiple places that serve this type of pork including other places in Spain. But this was out of any league. The wine is from there own vineyards, and the service was the best. If you visit Segovia you have to eat and Jose Maria.

We ate here on two consecutive nights, both times managing to get a table in the bar. The menu here is mainly tapas and we enjoyed what we ate, the wines, particularly the reds, were excellent. The service was prompt and efficient despite the language barrier.

Great spot for a glass of wine and some tapas. They do a great house red with a side of jamón. Can get very busy but good atmosphere.

Quality of food was less than the price dictated. It's an easy find and spacious but not the best place to experience suckling pig or traditional dishes.

Estimados amigos,

Gracias por su comentario y su visita. Elaboramos una cocina tradicional, basada en productos de nuestro entorno. El protagonista sin duda es nuestro cochinillo asado, tenemos nuestra propia granja cuidando este producto desde que nace hasta que llega a la mesa y velando por una calidad uniforme y excepcional. Si ésta no fue su percepción le pedimos disculpas y seguiremos trabajando en ello.

Gracias.
