El Bernardino, Segovia, return…

I’ve been to El Bernardino in Segovia, Spain, many times. It’s a popular restaurant, but don’t let that bother you. Simply go a little earlier than the usual meal time. You’ll have a seat, great service, and darn good food.

DSC_2897Of course, they do a delicious cochinillo here, have a great wine list, but don’t miss the ponche segoviano dessert seen below:

IMG_1841The dessert is worth a stop here. I did mention the wine, and here’s a tasty bottle you can find most anywhere.

IMG_1840The albariƱo wine goes with many things. Enjoy every meal. Take your time, too!

Restaurante El Bernadino, 2014

As long as we’re in Segovia, Spain, let’s stop for lunch at El Bernadino, another favorite of mine, where I have dined many times.

Here you’ll find all the traditional foods of Segovia and Spain in general. You can sit inside or out. I like to sit inside.

I started with the fabada Asturiana, a delicious bean soup that could have been the entire meal, as you see in the next photo:

Next I had the roast baby pig, which I did not take a photo of because I was enthusiastically enjoying the meal. Sorry about that. However, here’s a look at dessert:

While this restaurant does serve quite a few tourists, you will not the significant population of locals dining there, too. It’s a busy place, but there are three levels of seating so you’re sure to get a table quickly. Enjoy a bottle of wine from the extensive list. Worth every euro.
