Eating in Ayllon

Eating in Ayllon

Some sausage tapas are a great idea if you choose to eat in Ayllon. Even though this is a small village, you can choose between many restaurants and bars where you’ll be able to taste delicious meats, fishes and salad sides. Eating in Ayllon is a great opportunity to get to know the gastronomy of Segovia.

If you want to know what to eat in Ayllon, an interesting option would be to try the sausage tapas of the village – salchichón, lomo (pork loin), jamón serrano (ham) and morcilla (blood sausage) – and the curated artisan cheese. If you would prefer to try a traditional meal, the menus of the local restaurants will enable you to find dishes such as bull tail stew, roasted lamb, piglet, marinade hunt salads (made with wild boar, deer and quail), and fish (trout and salmon).

You could also try the patridge, whether it is in a salad, with marinade or filling some tasty pimientos rojos de piquillo with oil. This last recipe is usually served with lechazo and cochinillo. We should not forget about the delicious revueltos de matanza.

During the last weekend of July, the Ayllon Medieval festival takes place: a cultural gastronomy activity where you can enjoy the bocadillo de cerdo (pork) cooked in “Milagros” style. This is a different version of the bocadillo de embutido (sausage). Also, you should also try the traditional barbecues of the province.

Complete this gastronomy experience with a great wine Vino de la Tierra de Valtiendas with D.O., typical of the village. Don’t forget to try the delicious ponche segoviano (punch), fig biscuits, chocolate lava cake or rice pudding.

There’s not a tapas bar in Ayllon, but you can check our favorite restaurants in the section “A la carte”.

Even though this is a small community, you will be able to find numerous restaurants in Ayllon. El Parral offers a traditional cuisine from Segovia, as well as fish. It has a big terrace and club that make it the perfect place to celebrate a big event.  The restaurant also has a daily menu. Attention! You have to reserve in advance the roasted meats. It is also possible to order portions to share with your family or friends.

El Patio (at the Ayllon hotel) has many different dining rooms with bright and well decorated spaces. Its kitchen is simple, based on seasonal ingredients. The meatballs, the torreznos and the roasted lamb should always be between your options.
