Fodor's Review

Beginning life as an inn near the end of the 18th century, this restaurant was declared a national monument in 1941. It's one of the first historic buildings you see as you pass under the aqueduct and enter Segovia. Inside, there's a medley of small, irregular dining rooms decorated with a hodgepodge of memorabilia. Amid the dark-wood beams and Castilian knickknacks hang photos of celebrities who have dined here, among them Ernest Hemingway and Princess Grace. The cochinillo, roasted in a wood-fire oven, is a great choice, and partridge stew and roast lamb are also memorable, especially on cold winter afternoons. Ask for a table near a window, with a view of the aqueduct, just a few feet away. It's best to book online. If you don't have time for a full meal, there's also excellent tapas service at the bar.

I love this restaurant because it's like a museum. The suckling pig is the best in the city and is very tasty. Segovia is a lovely city to visit and eat suckling pig is typical at this restaurant. I recommend it
