Restaurante Palacios Toledo, Spain

We had a wonderful experience at the Restaurante Palacios. This warm and friendly restaurant is a short walk from the great cathedral of Toledo. The interior gives you the feeling that you could be eating here at any time in the last 500 years. There was a wonderful selection of food, but the best deals where the two course meals. There was a wide selection of first courses. I had the gazpacho, as I am eating gazpacho soup everywhere in Spain. It was the first time I had gazpacho with bread in it. It's a matter of taste, but it gives the gazpacho a thicker texture. I'm told this is preferred but then the soup can not be saved for a long period of time. The second courses allowed for a choice by price, with about seven selections in each price category ranging from 8.50 euros to 18.90 euros. I had the carmusas, a local pork stew, with potatoes that was an amazing taste treat. Some of the other dishes local to the Toledo area are pollo al toledana, and perdiz a la toledana. I thought this restaurant served really tasty food and felt that it was a great value. Toledo can be a bit of a maze, so you might have to look for this restaurant, but it's definitely worth finding. It is located on Calle Alfonso X El Sabio.
