The advisor in the tourist office was proud to inform us that Huesca, with a population of about 50k, has more Michelin stars than Valencia with a population of more than ten times greater.

Stopped here for lunch and what a find. Easy to choose the €16.5 menu for a three course lunch, including bread water and wine, when you're trying to keep your spending down. Was shocked to return to our table after washing my hands to find a bottle of red on the table and a bottle of white in the cooler!... More

In that beautiful town of Huesca, we had this wonderful lunch. The Chef Oscar Viñuales took our menu in hand and it was excellent. Dessert under Chef Bea was also impressive. My friend Daniel Grasa brought us here and we were very glad, he did. Y

We've been coming here for a few years now, and we've never been disappointed. Good mix of avant-garde and rebooted traditional local dishes.

Located in a small quiet square, El Origen offer a great variety of delicious food! I took a three course dinner (22€ incl. bottle of wine) and it was definitely one of my best restaurant experiences so far! I would give my highest recommendations to visit it!!

I do'nt agre e with the reviews on this restaurant. Yes it is quite and the personel is kind and availabile, brut the cousine is nothing special. I advice to order the "day menu" at 16 euros. If you chose "a la carte" you risk a robbery!

Been there many times and is always a great surprise. My favorites are the peas and the rices. Also local meat. The desserts are always great. Very good wine selection. This restaurant is a fantastic way to discover Aragon dishes, the menu always include local dishes. Call before you go to make sure is open. The ground floor is better... More
