Mesón Cuevas del Vino: this is where we had lunch
We chose this restaurant to have lunch and toast to Claus' 40th birthday.
The special thing about this restaurant is that it has its own wine cellar under the premises. The wine is aged in big clay "tinajas", something that is typical of Chinchón and they have 3 tables where people can have dinner at. I don't know if you can visit the cellar without being a patron tho.
They had their à la carte dishes and some fixed menus to choose from. Claus and I shared a "tabla ibérica" which contained ham and cheese, to this we got bread, wine and coca cola.
- Food and Dining
restaurant Cafe de la Iberia: Excellent meat
Several houses with balconies of the Plaza Mayor are restaurants. The best places to sit in these restaurants are of course the balconies from where one can view the square and surroundings.
Our favoured one was the restaurant Cafe de la Iberia. They serve excellent meat which you can cook at your choice on a hot plate.
Price of food and wine were average.
It is better to avoid week-ends when there are many visitors in Chinchon.
Favorite Dish: Sliced beef to cook on hot plate.

At Plaza Mayor
Several restaurants are situated at Plaza Mayor, so you can have lunch sitting in the middle of the circus, under the sun, if you like to do so.
Spaniard food is just excellent, so just choose and enjoy your meal!
A typical drink in Chinchón is dry aniseed with ice.
Varios restaurantes están situados en la Plaza Mayor, por lo que se puede almorzar sentado en medio de la plaza, bajo el sol, si así se desea.
La cocina española es excelente, así que sólo es cuestión de elegir y disfrutar la comida!
Una bebida típica de Chinchón es el anís seco con hielo.
