We ordered only the featured dish, grilled baby pig, because we noticed the bad feedback for other dishes on TripAdvisor. We were hoping the specialty here won't let us down. However, it turned out the baby pig was disappointing. It served without any other spices, so you can taste the original smell of the raw pork, which we think most... More

The Meson de Candido came recommended for the history, the setting and the famous suckling pig. We had an outside table on a warm spring day with impressive views of the famous aqueduct. The suckling pig was moist and tender but we were frankly disappointed with the other dishes. The white asparagus tasted like it came straight out of a... More

We actually went to Segovia primarily to have dinner here as we heard about the "rito" when they break the dish on the floor and the amazing pig! The tortilla is an omelette but the pig is worth it!

We arrived in Segovia at around 1300 and made a bee line straight to this popular restaurant upon recommendation. The staff are very friendly and accommodating and made sure we got a table with a great view of the aquaduct. The room feel is very rustic and had plenty of character. We had the chorizo and omelette to start with... More

This is a very cool building located literally In the shadow of the aqueduct. You just can't beat the view. The service was a little slow but to be fair we were there right at the busiest time for lunch. Food was good- we had soup and some other specialties. I wish we had gotten the pig though because that... More

I took a group of Canary Island visitors to Segovia, and we went to the famed Meson de Candido. I have eaten there before, but have stayed away only because of the tourists.
