San Antonio El Real – Restaurant review

San Antonio el real is both a hotel and a restaurant, housed within what was once a palatial estate belonging to King Enrique IV, located where the famous aqueduct of Segovia begins. The building has been standing since the XV century. After serving as a royal residence the complex was re-purposed as a church and a cloister. The building has survived numerous wars perfectly intact and is one of the hidden gems of the Medieval city of Segovia.

The dining room is surrounded by ancient stone walls and pillars and is lined with many large tables each equipped with candles and a white table cloth. The restaurant serves classic Castillian dishes like cochinillo and paletilla (roast suckling pork and lamb), which Segovia is famous for (and one of the most famous dishes in Spain) as well as other delicious classic Segovian dishes.

The menu of the San Antonio el Real Restaurant, allows you decide among a comprehensive offer of local recipes, or to opt for predefined menus where the options are shortlisted. All menus offer excellent value for money. If you would like to discover Segovian dishes the “gastronomic” menu is a good option. The restaurant also offers a tasting menu, of higher price, and which aims at offering new flavors to local clients that may want to try different dishes. For first-time visitors to Segovia, it makes all sense to try the classical options!

The restaurant has a good wine list that contains well-known local red wines, mainly from Ribera del Duero.

During the summer months the restaurant sometimes opens the cloister and offers dinners at this historic and charming environment!  One of the finest dining experiences in Segovia for sure!
