Where to Eat in Toledo: The Best Restaurants and Bars

October 19, 2017 Franklyn Hardiman

Synagogues, mosques and churches stand together in Toledo's historic quarter, a testament to the medieval Spanish city's diverse history. The four towers of The Alcazar, a fortress built in 1085, dominate the skyline. Toledo and its surrounding countryside inspired El Greco, and his paintings are on display in many places around the city, including the museum that bears his name.

El Albero

Reviewed By jclewis - Bristol, United Kingdom

We found this just because the other two places we intended to visit were closed and we read the Tripadvisor reviews. So happy this was open for one more night before their holidays. Friendly couple running their restaurant. We sat outside. The only ones there at 9:30 but by the time we left it was very busy. Quick and attentive service. Mushrooms and bread were given to us with our local white wine. Best I have ever had. Next three courses were beautiful and tasted amazing. Loved the dessert. We were so happy with our choice of this restaurant. Helped by the English menu and attempts at Spanish. Great value, particularly the wine. Would recommend this restaurant for any people that love great food and a friendly atmosphere away from the busier parts of Toledo town centre.

Restaurante El Penon

Reviewed By italaphile - Monterey, California

We opted for this restaurant as it is outside the walls of the city and we were able to park close by and avoid walking too far in torrential rain. We were happy with our choice - it's a family run restaurant with a friendly waiter and good food. I had the specialty -- perdiz --- and it was delicious. Tables started filling up later in the evening, mostly with locals and perhaps one other tourist couple. Service was good, prompt but not rushed, and our waiter chatted with us whenever he came to the table. Prices were very reasonable -- about 65 euros for three people for starters and main courses, one dessert, water and wine.

El Embrujo

Reviewed By Jennifer N - Halifax, Canada

I can't recommend El Embrujo enough, it was one of the highlights of my trip to Spain. The food was truly incredible and the service was flawless. As a solo diner, the waiter was very attentive. Though I didn't speak Spanish he was very accommodating and recommended two great dishes and wines to me. If you only have one night in Toledo, I would make sure you eat here.

La Mar Salah Toledo is a small but beautiful restaurant, located near the famous Door Hinge Toledo, next to the courthouse. Specializing in fish and wild premium seafood restaurant. We are aware that after a good kitchen should have the best raw materials brought directly from the best places in Spain for you. Great effort and dedication on our plates, day after day without intermediaries. We go in search of this wonderful product after squeezing in the kitchen preparing its qualities, its freshness and smell intrinsic sea. In the table, find the perfect match with our wines, which will further enhance the wonderful flavors of which we speak.

What an amazing place. It's a tiny little restaurant where you find mostly local people. They serve food from Galicia, their seafood is astonishingly fresh and gourmet prepared. It is far from the old town, I recommend getting a taxi if you are within the walls. Don't miss the arroz con bogavante

Taberna El Botero

Reviewed By Tracy W

This was very close to our Airbnb and we headed up for dinner around 6pm we were informed the restaurant didn't open until 9 so we had 2 very delicious cocktails and then went back to our Airbnb. We returned at 9pm hungry and ordered the tasting menu for two (70€ for 2). The first course was a lovely light pate, then a squid ink croquette (delicious), then another kind of croquette which they fired at the table with a little torch. A salad (fennel I think) to follow The mains were chicken with miso, a seares tuna, a very tasty beef dish, then lamb with Indian spices. Dessert was a chocolate and panna cotta. The food was all very delicious. The service could have been a little more attentive, but overall the high quality of the food deserved 5 stars from us

El Fogon Del Quijote

Reviewed By Dusty R - Birmingham, Alabama

Most of the restaurants in Toledo can be divided into two different categories: Tasty yet Expensive, or Tolerable and Affordable. El Fogon Del Quijote provides a solid bridge between the best of both worlds.
€12 can get you several glasses of wine, a sizeable appetizer, a hearty main course, and a little bit of dessert to cleanse the pallette.
The restaurant appeared to be owned and operated by a single older gentleman, who seemed genuinely passionate about the satisfaction of his customers. He even donates one euro from every transaction to the local food bank!
Would absolutely recommend to anyone visiting Toledo.

Reviewed By Chester G - Madrid, Spain

The whole experience was amazing!!! The waiter was very professional and provided excellent service. The menu was thought out and well developed. Interesting tastes, textures and amazing presentations. Loved the variety of China used for each course. Come hungry and allow plenty of time to enjoy eight or more courses. The fake mushroom was our favorite dessert.

Reviewed By berdafina - Europe

Outstanding, fine, creative and light cooking, inspired by regional specialities. Everything in the 13 course Clásico menu was very good, to say the least.
Exceptionally good value, even if not cheap of course. The wines accompanying the menu were good and generously poured, and this option also included aperitif, water and coffee.
Good service. Spacious and comfortable room.
Better than most Michelin 1 Rosette restaurants, deserves two. Highly recommended and it will be a pleasure to return here.

If you are looking for a quick bite on the go, the bocadillo with jamon is a great choice. The bread is fresh and tasty while the meat is cured nicely.
