The city of Jaén has several areas to go out for beers, tapas and pub-crawling. The streets around the cathedral, the San Ildefonso and around the Granary Square, are lit at sunset and give way to the people who will be enjoying some drinks at night. The taverns are filled. From the famous "The Sparrow" tavern, going all the way up through many others that offer refreshments, beers, tapas and cocktails. This is the perfect way to spend your day after a day of sightseeing in Jaen.
The restaurant at the Jaen lookout point has a certain charm about it that’s different from the rest of the building. The arches and the lamps make sure the atmosphere is exquisite, consistent with the food they offer on their menu. The gastronomy you’ll find here is traditional, but with innovative presentations.
In addition to the classic menu, there are certain set menus and “fast” dishes, but everything is great. The service is A+.
This is an excellent restaurant in the center of Jaén for meat or seafood. Good value for money. Waiters are very professional and friendly. You should try the exceptional shrimp and Ox. There is an ample variety of food.
The Pura Milonga Restaurant is the most chic one in Jaen, and it's a fabulous Argentinean restaurant. The staff here is very friendly, they're always hyper vigilant. You can try different types of meat and even do a wine tasting. Affordable prices.
Moliere Restaurant has the best tapas in the capital where you can have a cold beer and some creative tapas accompanied by one of their exotic cocktails. You can also enjoy some exquisite appetizers with a twist that characterizes this cocktail bar. Of course, on hot nights, the terrace will be great, which together with a cold beer will make you feel great.
Extensive menu, very good value for money and excellent service. The wine list is vast, the ox very is good and do not miss the desserts which are all homemade and freshly made The place is amazing, made of old brick, wood and natural stone. The atmosphere is very select and the kitchen is top quality.
Panaceite is next to the cathedral in Jaén. I've found a place where they serve typical tapas typical in these parts. It's a good place, they have good food and the service is good. I highly recommend it, although parking there is difficult.
The best risotto in Jaén, surely. It is located in the center of the capital, in front of the basilica of San Ildefonso, in a new location. The owner has over 10 years experience in the industry and the service is exceptional.
