If you visit this municipality in winter, the most recommendable dish is a good pot of Castilian soup, garlic soup, or one of the stews prepared with Lenteja Pardina de Tierra de Campos, lentils with I.G.P., all so you can enjoy a good hot dish ideal for the typical low winter temperatures.

The typical wines of the region could be the perfect accompaniment for these types of dishes. Additionally, due to the location of the town, you’ll be able to choose between several distinct local wine varieties: Vino D.O. Tierra de León, Toro, and Rueda.

This town is also known for its wide variety of desserts, in which you can find pastries like rosquillas de palo, buñuelos, hojuelas con miel, torrijas, etc. There are also the so-called “peonillas” cookies, which are made specifically in this locality.

If you’re looking for a place to eat tapas in Simancas, we recommend the following places:

La Ceza, where they have an ample bar with pinchos with a very good pint.

If you go in summer or when there is good weather, without a doubt you have to go to the terrace at Chiringuito La Baruva, next to the river. It is highly recommendable for going with kids, since there is a play area next to the establishment.

Another option is El Rincón del Tío Michel, next to the Castle of Simancas. We highlight their grilled meat, but you can also order entrees like grilled chorizo, a pincho de tortilla de patatas, or a delicious mushroom scramble.

Here we recommend a few of the restaurants where you can eat in Simancas. At the hostel Las Tercias, 50 meters away from the Archive, they serve traditional local food and, on Tuesdays, Castilian stew; they also organize gastronomic weeks as well as specific in-season game and mycological menus, and offer a wide range of tapas.

The restaurant Casa del Arte offers traditional cuisine based in in-season products, and prepares special menus for family and professional gatherings; they offer service in their garden during the summer season.

Finally, Casa de los Infantes is next to the historical Archive high in the mountains, which allows for a view of the Sierra de Guadarrama mountain range.
