A rich blend of the historic and modern, Zaragoza sits on the banks of the Ebro River. Stroll in the center of town near San Miguel's pedestrian ways or around the Plaza de los Sitios, where you find boutiques, markets and souvenir shops. A center for gastronomy, Zaragoza offers food and drink for every budget and taste. But tapas is a must! In 2008, Zaragoza hosted the International Exhibition; the Water Tower, Bridge Pavilion and River Aquarium show off of the city's avant-garde architecture.

David the maître d/ sommelier was excellent. As a South African the 95 Euro pairing menu seemed expensive but was absolutely worth it. It would be stupid not to have the correct wine to match these wonderful dishes. Visually beautiful and equally delicious dishes that kept on coming. Never thought of matching these wines with the dishes. The only minor disappointment would have been the Grinach with the delicious lamb but by that time everything was so good we did not really mind. For Europeans and Americans this probably not that expensive. I am saving to come again. Thank you David.

Finding decent vegetarian food in Spain used to be a challenge: but no longer. Baobab is a very fine example, with a predominantly young clientele, earnestly helpful staff and fabulous food. Serene modern decor and good soundproofing make the place a haven of quiet, where you can savour delicious cuisine and enjoy a proper conversation. Spoiled for choice, I pondered for ages over the menu, eventually choosing, for starter, to share a platter of gyoza dumplings stuffed with pumpkin and shitake mushrooms, with a tangy dipping sauce. As a main course I took the aubergine 'millefeuille' - I would have described it more as a soft strudel - with creamy mushrooms and a tomato salsa, a truly heavenly concoction. I was too full for a dessert, but couldn't resist nibbling at my colleague's choice of quince jelly (membrillo) with a dark-beer cake and cardamom-spiced foam. This is without doubt one of the most enjoyable vegetarian restaurant meals I have ever experienced, and for a ridiculously low price of 55 e for two persons, including a bottle of first-class rioja.

The Restaurante Celebris is to be found at the heart of the Hotel Hiberus. With its simple but meticulous interior decoration which strives for intimacy, bathed in natural light, this hotel is a meeting point for those who wish to view the city from another angle. The privileged location of the Restaurante Celebris, together with its surroundings, are part of its unmistakeable stamp, which is inherent through cooking subtle flavours, open to the world, daringly but quietly fusing together the cultures and produce from here and there. The Lunas del Ebro menu is the restaurant's gastronomic proposal. It is an open menu with a fixed price which is renewed every three months, offering the best products of the season. The restaurant has a private room for any time of the year, and a large Terrace, for those who enjoy dining in the open air when the good weather arrives. In summer there is live music in the evenings. Its cuisine is complemented with its wine cellar which comprises over 150 national wines.
There is a choice of the three set menus including wine. We chose the 28 Euro menu which consisted of three courses. The waiter explained the courses very well and our selection proved to be an excellent choice, every course was well presented and cooked...MoreDear Len R, Thank you for your great comments and taking the time to share your wonderful review. We are happy that you are satisfied. We look forward to welcoming you back again on your next stay. Kind regards, Restaurante Celebris

This was a fabulous experience for my wife and I on our first evening in Zaragoza. As usual we used TripAdvisor for recommendations for somewhere to eat and think this fine establishment should be much higher in the pecking order. The variety and quality of the tapas was superb and washed down with some fine wines from a huge choice all at a very reasonable cost. We have one more night in Zaragoza and know where we will eat tomorrow !

Pequenas pinceladas de sabor para grandes paladares
This little bar has the best tapas in the city. You will pay more but that doesn't matter. You'll be glad you went. We had six incredible tapas and four beers and paid 28 euros. Expensive? Yes. Compared to the typical piece of chorizo on hard bread places. But you will love these creations. Try it! Check out some of the photos of US astronauts who have visited.

Casa Pedro is not your tipical tapas bar: everything seems (and I'd bet is) prepared on demand, the flavors are excellent and well balanced, and the menu is just the right length - allowing choice without compromising quality. Waiting service was excellent, friendly and helpful.
I invite everyone to take a look at the postres: they compliment perfectly the rest of the menu, and have nothing to envy to the award-winning tapas.
Price is above average (25-30 eur for a healthy selection of dishes), but worth every cent - and then some.

Cervino isn't in the city centre but if you're visiting Aljaferia Palace you should drop by and have some tapas and wine in this small bar. If you're lucky the bar owner, Juan, will be there to recommend the specialties of the week. It is super clean and it offers a wide variety of tapas and raciones which are better cooked than many of the ones you'll find in the centre. And well priced! Try the calamari, the patatas bravas, the numerous "bocadillos" offered in their menu, their toasts with toppings which will make your mouth water. And if you like wine, Cervino has a huge selection too. The bar has won several awards for "best lamb bocadillo of the year" or "best tapa" in the annual competitions which take place in town and it's also raised money for charity. It is a classic in the Almozara area, an authentic place to get to try local produce. Go earlish because it gets packed at 9 pm and it's not a big bar.

We went to Meson Martin early in the New Year with two good Spanish friends, who had booked for us all the day before. Great atmosphere: it was full of Spanish of all ages both at the bar and at tables, all eating tapas which were absolutely delicious, and a mix of traditional (empanadas, pulpo) and original. Try the potatoes with peppers and eggs, and be prepared to have the plate in the middle so you can all help yourselves from it. Highly recommended, most particularly because we were the only non-Spanish there. Four of us had an enormous lunch, plus several beers and a bottle of Rioja for around 25 euros each. Amazing value.

We've been there twice. Once, on a weekday, we were lucky enough to get a table, and the dining experience was very pleasant. The place was busy, very student-friendly. The waiter was really helpful explaining the different positions on the menu. The second time we went there on a Friday and we were a bit surprised by the crowd there. The place is definitely worth trying, but maybe it's a good idea to order the food by phone and eat at home
