I've eaten in Salamanca many times, but never tapas. So, with a little pressure from my better half we sat down in the plaza for dinner. The tapas were delicious and well priced. They also have an extensive wine list . The night turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. I recommend eating in the plaza. The service was... More

Awesome tapas and great service! One of the few remaining cities where a free tapa comes with a drink....we came here because it was lauded as one of the best. Absolutely did not disappoint!! Don't pass it by!!

Difficult to access for some but worth it if you can get a table by a window. Very romantic and the food wasn't bad either. Good tapas too but don't come too early or they won't have any ready (aka before 8pm).

In mesion cervantes, you could enjoy the perfect view of plaza mayor in Salamanca. Nice service, fine decoration and atmosphere were all you could have! Not only with tapas. we three people stayed here for menu del dia. I have to say the quantity and quality were pretty good! From 1st dish to beverage and dessert, amazing! Highly recommend here...

Been there with friends to enjoy a variety of traditional dishes (tapas) of Salamanca accompanied with a couple of beers (cerveza). A cosy and beautiful style tavern for small group of friends. Excellent food for good prices.

A window table has a great view over the Plaza Mayor but other than that there is nothing to commend this restaurant. The friendly waiters encountered by other reviewers weren't evident: they weren't unfriendly but rather indifferent in comparison to those we met in other establishments. The menu is uninspiring and expensive. The quality of the food is inadequate: we... More

Busy, friendly place for tapas meals and a good local beer, attracting students, locals and tourists. On the first floor just above the main square, so a very good location.

It is a place with a very friendly atmosphere. This place is not only known for its "tapas", one more feature of this place are its waiters ... they are very friendly.

A wide range of tapas available upstairs and overlooking the Plaza Mayor. Don't be fooled by the stairs you will have to climb. Excellent way to try a new tapa typical of Salamanca and CyL.

Yes, I liked it but I thought the prices were a bit high. Well, maybe not surprising being right on the Plaza Mayor. Still, the food was good. And one of the waiters was kind (the other was a bit of a douche) as he explained the menu in painstaking detail to a British couple who quite literally screamed at... More
