The combination of César Raez, an amazing chef, and one of the best locations in Cáceres, a tower in the Los Sande Palace, makes for an explosion for the senses.
César uses local products from Extremadura and he gives them a haute-cuisine spin. The tasting menu we tried said it all: mango and smoked salmon with extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar, cherry salmorejo with goat cheese, cuttlefish noodles with basmati rice, grilled pork flanks with a date and truffle purée, and an apple pudding with a forest-berry sauce.
Although this particular restaurant is in Caceres, the company is a franchise and there are already branches in Extremadura Seville, Madrid, Barcelona and Salamanca, among other cities. Its success lies in offering affordable Iberian deli-style food in a modern and fresh environment. I have read that, although the franchise was born in Extremadura, it is now owned by Pans and Company and Fresh Co. Well, if they open one in your city, don't hesitate to go in and try the iberian ham.
This place has an unbeatable location, with a terrace in front of the Cathedral of Siguenza. Regarding the food, we ordered eel with shrimp, ham, three cheese and onion toasts which were perfect in proportion and flavor. The homemade ham croquettes were also delicious. The desserts (shown in the photo) were wonderful. Best of all was the service, the waitress could not have been more polite, friendly and professional. A great place.
Walking through the old quarter of Caceres, I found the Tapería la Cacharreria. For an affordable price, it's the best way to enjoy the local cuisine. The owners Juan and Alberto add even more interest to this place. Definitely worth a visit.
The quality of the food is good and the portions are generous. The steaks are excellent, whether duck, venison, or pork. The service is friendly, but the restaurant is a little uncomfortable because the chairs and the tables are very close to each other. But, if you want to eat well, with good presentation, a good wine list and reasonable prices, then this is the place for you to sample food from Extremadura! By the way, the fig biscuit for dessert is possibly the best in the region!
The menu and quality of wine is extensive. There are many different skewers of good quality. It's expensive if you're going to have rations, because they aren't large, but the quality is really good. During my last visit to Caceres, I went to another nearby bar, El Dallas, which I loved, because it was full. I recommend it. If go there soon, you will see me, eating fried eggs or the Morcilla de Guadalupe!
This is one of the top ten places in Spain to get married. It is an idyllic castle which offers lots of charm and character, perfect for the most important celebrations in your life. There is a beautiful garden where you can enjoy cocktails and outdoor dining, but the inside banquet room is also very nice. The trouble is getting there, but there are usually buses from Cáceres. The food is pretty good, especially the delicious Iberian ham, that is a staple in every celebration in Spain. The delightful and picturesque setting allows wonderful photographs. Ideally, you can get married at Church the Cathedral of Caceres, in the heart of Old Town, but there is also a place for civil weddings.
This is a great Asian restaurant that serves excellent food. Due to the crisis, they have reduced the price of the dishes which is so kind of them. The average price per person is 25 euros. There are 4 menus to choose from, with prices between 22 euros and 28 euros. The vegetable tempura, shrimp and beef with sesame are exceptional!!
I liked it alright, and would definitely recommend it. I've always been very happy with the food. If you sit near the windows, you'll have a nicer time because the Prince Park views are very good. If you're not lucky enough to sit there, it's not as cozy because the dining room is really big and the ceiling is very tall. You get the feeling that at any moment, they will get a busload of tourists. It's still a recommended site if you like a good meal. The price is normal for this type of restaurant, about €30-40 per person, depending on the wine and dessert.
In summer, they make artisan poles of lemon that are really cool, as well as really delicious. They're worth a walk down to the Plaza to have a pole of Isa. Now, with the remodelling of the Plaza, when evening falls during the summer, you can sit down on any of the steps with a pole and watch the tourists. A luxury.
The truth is that once you enter the alleyways of Cáceres’ historic district there aren’t too many places to eat, so I’d like to point out La Tapería, the tapas bar of the famous restaurant Torre de Sande.
There is a bar area and a terrace overlooking Condes Street, and the menu is informal and based on original, elaborate, and eco-friendly tapas made with natural organic products from the region.
Each tapa costs 4€ and one person can order two and be satisfied. We ordered the puff-pastry with vegetables, caramelized onions, and blue cheese, the pork flank with dates, pesto, and truffle purée, and a Torta de Casar.
It’s a good option for lunch if you’re in a hurry or don’t want to spend too much.
This is a lovely place to enjoy some delicious tapas and enjoy the music of Medina Azahara. The chicken salad with roquefort was delicious. Get there early because the place fills up fast. If the weather is nice, you will find it difficult to get a table outside.
