Restaurant: Cuenca!!

So on my continuing nostalgic trip visiting my favorite hangouts all over the world this time I take you to my fav town of Cuenca in Castilla La Mancha Spain. One of my most nostalgic towns having spent wonderful family vacations here and they last.

Let me tell you briefly about my fav restos here of the several we have patronised over the years, these are it; Cafe bar La Martina and Cafeteria Boni!


Cafe Bar la Martina at Calle Carreteria, 33. You will find perfectly cooked tapas, jamon and pan con tomate on the menu. It’s a must while visiting Cafe Bar la Martina to order delicious beer. Get your meal started with great coffee. The convenient location of this place makes it easy to reach even in rush hours.  The fast service is something these restaurateurs care about.  Reasonable prices at this restaurant are good news for its visitors and the ambiance is pleasant.


So lunch we had at Bar Cafe Martina  each time in town or most, it was found as usual by walking around the town coming on its most pedestrian nice city center street of Calle Carreteria. This is a local joint very friendly nice and the price right. We had our usual beers Under a umbrella canopy in the middle of the street,and had our omelettes, chorizos, and croquettes all good for about 8€ per person.


Calle Carretería had its great splendor when the city ended in La Ventilla and little more than Cuatro Caminos, along Calle de la Alameda, which led to the bullring and the avenue of the Reyes Càtolicos (Catholic Monarchs)  of scattered dwellings. It was  the real shopping center of the city , still partly today, for the purposes of the social life itself. No webpage contact Tel +34 969 23 47 30. Which is a good sign really, you have locals and the real ambiance and food.


The Cafeteria Boni  at Av. de los Alfares, 48 with terrace sitting that is set up in the parque/Jardines de San Juliàn by Calle Caballeros entrance as well.  The service and food was good but it was the most expensive experience in the trip! Only 15.90€ per person for arroz a la Cubana, small  steaks, fries, omelettes, croquettes of ham and cheese, and beers for all. No web contact tel   +34 969 23 03 96 again good food and great local ambiance.


Another find by walking the beat of the town of Cuenca. Best of all, its terrace for a drink on the hot summer days under the shades of the imposing trees of Parque San Julian. Their attentive staff is very hard working, always has a positive attitude and makes this a great place. A wonderful memorable experience with the family.



Hope you enjoy these brief posts on restaurants as you can certainly know these are part of the nostalgic adventures we take when we travel even in very familiar places like me in my Spain. Enjoy the restaurants of Cuenca!!!

And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!
