We found it by chance near the Casa de las Conchas. In appearance it seems more like a cafe than a restaurant. The staff is great and the food (which is important in these places), very good. You have a menu for 12€ (+2 € extra if you eat on the terrace).
The chef is Hector Carabias so I needn’t say any more. 100% recommended if you pass through Salamanca.
It is a bar located in the most central part of Salamanca. The atmosphere is fantastic and the people are very nice. What really caught my attention was the variety of wines, around 200, but especially the Pago de Carrovejas, an excellent Ribera del Duero wine which can be found in few places...
Their tostas (open sandwiches), freshly made and hot, consist of prawns, sepia and cod ... I personally go for the House speciality, which is pork tenderloin with blue cheese, and those with Iberian cured meat rations. Look, I have tried many tostas, but not like these. We are a group of students ve usually go every Thursday and we love it so go and prove me right.
The Tevere is a restaurant on Van Dyck Street in Salamanca. Since it's close to a cinema, it's very popular to eat at before going to a movie. It's also a modern area of the city, with many residences, and lower prices than in the centre. I like it because the tapas were very good, and very well presented. There are regional specialties, like sausage with rice or with onions, cheese plates, and piquillo peppers. There are larger dishes served in white ceramic, with a modern twist. Drinks are cheap, too. A cana doesn't cost more than 2 euros, and you can have a good meal, for about 20 euros/person. The place is very busy on Friday and Saturday nights, when it's hard to find a table. I recommend going somewhere else if there's only standing room because you won't enjoy the food as much standing up. The desserts are very good too, there is an amazing chocolate cake.
We went here on the recommendation of a friend who studied in Salamanca, and it was a great decision. Good, cheap tapas - not much else to say. Casseroles are € 1.10 and all were very good. Rufo's signature dish are the rufadas, a loaf of bread stuffed with a scrambled egg, potato, and sausage of your choice, and for only 1.50 € it leaves you almost full. The only small downside is that it is often packed.
The Churrasco (barbecued or grilled meat) is a typical Salamancan bar, in particular, a bar typically found on Calle Van Dyck, with the added incentive of being one of the first on this famous street.
In its favour are several things: the location, size, quality and good service. Against ... that it is one of many.
It is very close to the cinemas, on the corner of calle de las Salesas. Through its windows, you can see what's cooking inside. The site is rather large and usually quite comfortable, whether it be at a small table, a high table or the bar itself, however there are days when you cannot move.
Here it is typical to order a caña (small beer), wine or soft drink and be presented with a complimentary tapa de costilla (tapas of ribs), quite big and tasty. If you want anything else from what they have on offer as tapas you’ll have to order it at the same time as your drinks. Like for example, the loin. But hey, they ask when you order. I, without a doubt, recommend that every time you go to the bar you say, “Una caña y tapa de costilla”. "It's amazing, really.
Prices are fairly affordable, like everything in this area and the rations, both complimented and paid for are quite big and tasty. Although it is best to order only drinks, eating tapas and, after a while, change bar and continue the ritual.
It is worth at least ordering a couple here and then later go onto any of the bars on offer in this beautiful city.
I recall the beer costing 1.5 euros more or less.
A typical small neighbourhood bar, very close to the Plaza Mayor. Friendly, local cliente. The specialty is the roast pig snout, not to all tastes, but if you like offal you'll have a great time here. Kidneys with sherry, stewed tongue, etc ... don't miss out on the great potato salad, either.
