The Top Places To Eat in Segovia
As a resident of Spain for many years, I’ve travelled the country to see the sights and seek out the best food. Segovia scores high on both counts. The city’s Roman Aqueduct is one of the country’s top historical attractions and earned UNESCO World Heritage status in 1985.
Meanwhile, the hearty cuisine showcases the best produce of the Castile and León region. You won’t find a food scene brimming with Michelin stars, but you’ll find honest cooking the locals are proud of. So, let’s take a closer look at the best restaurants in Segovia.
If you love food and seeing the sights, you’ll love our Segovia day trips. They explore the historical monuments of Segovia and nearby areas as well as celebrate local cuisine with a traditional Iberian lunch or try an authentic cochinillo asado (suckling pig) lunch.

Restaurante Panorámico La Postal
€€ | Castilian Cuisine | Unique Dining Room | City Views
To enjoy Segovia’s stunning vistas while tasting some local cuisine, head to La Postal. The restaurant is a 10-minute drive from the center and boasts jaw-dropping views of the city and mountains. You can eat in the main dining room or reserve a table in a restored vintage railway car at the weekends.
They serve local fare including roasted lamb and suckling pig cooked in a wood-fired oven. Plus, you can try creative modern dishes like grilled octopus with potatoes, wild thyme, and red pepper aioli. Or how about wild mushroom risotto with zucchini and white truffle? Best of all is the warm welcome they extend to tourists as well as locals. We recommend booking in advance.

Restaurante José María
€€€ | Authentic Segovian | Home Grown Products | Legendary Suckling Pig
The suckling pig is the icon of Segovian gastronomy. The dish forms part of the cultural tradition of the people and the land. If you’re going to sample this delicacy, do it at restaurant José María.
Why? Because they care so much about this product, they created their own breeding farm. Owner José María is also the chairman of PROCOSE (the Association for the promotion of the suckling pig of Segovia).
As if that wasn’t enough, the restaurant also has its own vineyard. There, they craft wine that pairs perfectly with suckling pig. The rest of the menu is full of creative dishes all driven by seasonal produce. The consistent quality earned them a mention in the Michelin guide. But the best endorsement comes from the locals who flock here. Making a booking in advance is essential.
Address: C. Cronista Lecea, 11
€€ | International Influence | Modern Ambience | Good Veggie Options
A minute’s walk from Restaurant José María and 10 minutes from the Aqueduct is Pasapán. The restaurant is an all-round crowd-pleaser in a modern space with an eclectic menu to match. There are global influences from Mexico, Italy, Korea, and beyond. Plus, refined takes on local and national dishes. The menu will also delight vegetarians as it offers more than token options.
Highlights include the cut beef with Peruvian huancaína sauce, kale, shitake and almonds, and the beef chop suey. Just make sure you leave room for one of the delicious desserts. We recommend the baked-to-order apple tart. You’ll want to go back.

€€ | Wood Roasted Meat Specialists | Aqueduct Views | Terrace
Asador Maribel is another of Segovia’s most popular spots for enjoying wood-roasted meat. This time with terrace views of the Roman Aqueduct. But the menu is not limited to suckling pig. There’s also an extensive choice of local dishes with meat, fish, and veggie options.
This is a real showcase of Segovian cuisine and one of the hotspots for discerning locals. If there’s no room on the terrace, don’t worry. The interior is cozy and welcoming. And the service is super-quick—a satisfying contrast to the relaxed atmosphere.
If you want to get a true taste of local cuisine cooked to the highest standard, this is the place. It’s my number one choice for high-quality cuisine that won’t break the bank.

If you’re looking for something a little different, this is the place. Casa Comala is a newcomer on the scene and sits in the shadows of the cathedral. But they have already made an impact with their fusion of Mexican and Segovian cooking. This, along with their funky decor and relaxed vibe makes this a place worth adding to your dinner list.
The food is creative and tasty. There are some interesting flavor combinations, but everything works. For example, you’ll find yucas bravas instead of the usual patatas bravas. That’s yucca cooked in a tamarind and chipotle sauce.

The bar is open for breakfast Tuesday to Saturday and lunch Tuesday to Friday. And the menu varies weekly. What’s more, the service is warm and friendly. Making this the perfect place for breakfast or a healthy midday pit stop.
