It will be hard for you to choose where to eat in Pedraza de la Sierra. In most of these restaurants you have to book in advanced and some of them don’t offer dinners so pay attention!

The Mesón de Máximo Manrique is a small restaurat that has preserved its original style: continuos benches where they only offer a main dish, roasted baby lamb with salad. You’ll be able to find lots of desserts. The history of the place makes it special as almost a century ago, Maximo Manrique went to Pedraza so many times that he ended up building his own inn.

In the main square we find the restaurant El Soportal. It is managed by the owner, Pedro Martín and they offer lots of different dishes such as judiones and roasted pig, and it gives the option to order a children menu.

Family atmosphere, low prices and quality food characterise El Corral de Joaquina. This bar is one of the most popular among the locals and there must be a reason for that!

La Olma mixes traditional cuisine with seasonal recipes and modern techniques under the guidelines of the chef Sergio. If you are a sweet lover you should visit their bakeries where you will fing regional pastries and some “preñados de chistorra”.
