There are so many fab, really reasonably-priced restaurants in Salamanca. While living here over the past couple of months, I have amassed a list of my favourite eateries there.
La Hoja 21
This restaurant is fab – they do a fantastic value 3 course menu deal, but the a la carte menu itself really isn’t too expensive either, given the quality of the food. The chocolate fondant is divine and can’t be missed!
Sibuya Sushi Bar
When I was in Salamanca, I found myself really missing my regular Itsu and craving sushi. Luckily, Sibuya had recently opened and does high-quality, delicious sushi. They also do meat skewers and lighter salads to go with the yummy rolls. The service here is fantastic too.
En La Parra
This is one not to be missed if you’re a keen foodie – they offer a 7 course set menu meal which changes every month. The dishes are all inspired by different cuisines and are honestly exquisite. It is like eating Michelin-star quality food but for the price of a reasonable restaurant in London!
This is rated number 1 on Tripadvisor in Salamanca, and I can see why. It is a small tapas restaurant slightly hidden away, but it is definitely worth going. Booking is vital as it is so small and hugely popular. The pollo con mojo rojo and setas are my favourite dishes, but honestly everything they serve is divine. I just wish they did croquetas too!
This was a local’s recommendation, and you can see why. It is your traditional small tapas restaurant – the dishes are along the counter and they don’t have prices. With every drink you get, you also get a couple of tapas dishes of your choice. When you go to pay, they basically make up the price and charge you – you will be shocked when you only have to pay around €10 for 3 drinks and 4 tapas dishes; it’s insane! Such a great place to head to if you want to mingle with the locals and get an authentic tapas experience.
I hope you try out these recommendations if you ever visit Salamanca!
