    Duque: Suckling Pig

    by easyoar Written Apr 2, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cooked Suckling Pig

    Obviously vegetarians won't be wanting to eat Suckling Pig, but I can imagine that there are some meat eaters who will not want to eat it either due to the young age of the animal.

    Whilst I do not really approve of the killing of such a young animal to eat, now I know what it tastes like I can understand why it is so popular.

    This picture shows what may arrive at your table should you order suckling pig for around 4 people.

    Duque: Alway has excellent food, but not cheap either

    Duque in Segovia

    The food in Duque has always been excellent when I have eaten there (several times over the years). It doesn't tend to get as crowded as Candido and is easier to get a table.

    This restaurant seems to have been patronized by King Juan Carlos and his family several times and you can find numerous autographed cards over the walls.

    Favorite Dish: My top tips are the Morcilla and the Suckling Pig. Morcilla is more commonly known as Black Pudding in English and is made from pigs blood, but don't let that worry you as it tastes great.

    Candido: Great ambience and excellent views

    by easyoar Updated Apr 2, 2005

    Candido's restaurant in Segovia

    The speciality food that Segovia is famous for throughout Spain is suckling pig. Candido restaurant is overpriced, but it has 'the' best location in the whole of Segovia being right next to the aquaduct. The food used to be good, but the last time I went it was very disappointing.

    It's hard to estimate prices these days as Spain seems to have undergone massive inflation since the Euro came in, but cheap it ain't. You can expect to be paying over 20 Euros for a portion of suckling pig.

    When Segovia is busy, Candido can be quite hard to get into anyway, my advice is walk up the hill to Duque or go even further towards the Alcazar and find a quieter restaurant.

    Favorite Dish: It has to be suckling pig... Assuming they are concentrating on quality rather than getting as many tourists through the doors.

    Narizotas: Great food and location

    by Lorro Updated Jan 21, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Narizotas

    Narizotas is a great restaurant with great service located in the most beautiful plaza in Segovia. I like the sense of humor in the story on the front of the menu, but its in Spanish. Its great, it tells the supposed history of this restaurant, catorized with not even one star just "one little fork."
    Narizotas means big nose and supposedly it was a big nosed count from Wales who started a tavern that became known as the Narizotas tavern to the local people. Who knows what ever became of him.
    The decor is rustic and inviting and whisks you back a few hundred years to a time when there was time to sit down to a good meal. In the summer its great to sit at one of the outdoor tables.

    Favorite Dish: When there for lunch I ordered the "Menu del dia" which had a few options, I had a nice shrimp bisque soup and Salmon with vegetables for a main course. They have other interesting salads and dishes. Everything was great taste and quality. I can't wait to go back!

    El Invernadero Restaurant

    The entrance

    We had lunch in this peaceful nice restaurant. It is located in the garden of "Las Fuentes" hotel. It used to be the greenhouse (invernadero) of the old house, now turned in a restaurant. So most of the walls are crystal and is surrounded by a beautiful garden. You can have lunch outside in the garden, is a very quiet place, ideal to go with kids.

    Favorite Dish: They have a menu that is mixed with typical spanish dishes and some oriental things (samosas, curry, spring rolls...)

    El Desvan (?): Quick snack before going home!

    by MarvintheMartian Written Apr 23, 2004

    Right next to the Aqueduct!

    I wasn't looking for more than a quick snack before heading back on the bus to the train station.

    I headed in here not knowing what I'd find and to my delight it was a bar with a few tables for people to eat food.

    I tried the fried chorizo which was very authenic and quite satisfying!

    Limón e Menta: Delicious pastry

    by micas_pt Written Mar 31, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On such a chilly day and after going up all those steps on the Castle’s Tower we were just needing a hot drink. We stopped at Plaza Mayor, before entering the Cathedral, and enjoyed a quick snack at Limon and Menta. This place has fantastic pastry – both tasty and with excellent presentation. It is situated in one of the corners of Plaza Mayor and it is mainly conceived to take way pastries, chocolates and candies. It has only 2 or 3 tables and I must confess that if the cake and hot chocolate weren’t so delicious I would be complaining about their lousy service right now.

    Meson de Candido: For some roast suckling pig

    by virtualpatrick Updated Feb 25, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Although we did not go to any restaurants on the trip to Segovia, I heard Meson de Candido is one of the top restaurants in the area and a place were you can get roast suckling pig.

    And the location can't be beat - underneath the aqueduct - que romantico.

    A place right across from the train station: Have some cervezas and tapas before you leave...

    by virtualpatrick Written Feb 25, 2004

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Before you have to catch your trainback from Segovia, have some cervezas and tapas before you leave.

    There's a small place right across the street from the train station, I don't remember the name - I think it just says "Bar" or "Restaurante" as a big sign. Small place seems like where the locals go. Classic, the tissues and peanut are left and thrown on the floor to be swept up by the surly lady behing the counter.

    We had chicharon for tapas, which is cracking pork rind/skins. Perfect to go with that nice cold cervezas...

    La Roca: Prices are nuts, get dry fruit!

    by gOdOtPm Written Dec 13, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dried fruits, judiones and Cantimpalo saussage

    The guy in this little place is nervous and apparently hermetic to others. However, he's got most of the food that a backpacker looks for: dried fruit, chocolate, ellaborate sweets and local cheese, to name just some.

    Favorite Dish: He also sells the traditional cantimpalo saussage, judiones (really big beans) and such. Although the prices are not exaggerate, of course, the most traditional, the most expensive.
    It's just a brief stop in one of the most crowded streets in Segovia: the Calle Real.

    Duque: Succulent Piglets

    by Bregman Written Jun 27, 2003
    Cochinillo Asado

    A great restaurant serving typical Segovian (and Castillian) dishes. The specialty of Segovia is "asado" and this place is the perfect place to taste it. A word of warning: If you are a vegetrian this is not the place for you. The look of the cute piglets waiting to get into the oven can be disturbing even to a dedicated carnivore...

    Favorite Dish: Cochinillo asado (Oven roasted suckling pig)

    Duque Restorante: Best Baby Suckling Pig and History

    by aflaneur Written Feb 25, 2003

    Since 18-something Duque has been roasting all manner of beasts and pairing them with extraordinary wines, and this is THE PLACE for the local specialty -- baby suckling pig. Skip the touristy places next to the aqueduct and head into the city centre.
