Restaurant: San Lorenzo de El Escorial!

Ok so one more in my quest to left an imprint of my rounds in restaurants with the family in Europe and elsewhere. I am taking now to a wonder of our world that must be seen and do walk the town too, it is wonderful. I am taking you to San Lorenzo de El Escorial in the Comunidad de Madrid of my beloved Spain.

While gazing at its marvel Royal Monastery  and walking its historic streets one has to be hungry. We have come here since 1990 with my dear late wife Martine. IN fact, while there with her car we had a flat tire and needed to call for a local garage to come and take the car to fix the tire very nicely and quick. We love to come here ever since!

As to eating well true to making a one day trip from Madrid our numbers of places are not much but one memorable one is the Meson 5 Bellotas, Calle de La Reina Victoria 10, San Lorenzo de El Escorial.  Facing Plaza de la Cruz. No web just their Facebook page here: Facebook page of Meson 5 Bellotas

San Lorenzo de El Escorial

We are lucky to have known  Mesón 5 Bellotas because each time we are very nicely welcome and always a good quality/price ratio.  The management/owner is very nice too. You can always taste delicious tapas that are the specialty here as well as known for its cold beer!

We come for lunch , and tapas galore we have bits and pieces of different ones including the famous grilled toast with all kinds of goodies on top your selection as well as theirs. The views over the square is nice and lots of people seeing going on! This is the Plaza de la Cruz.

You do well to stop by and try the Méson 5 Bellotas at San Lorenzo de El Escorial, not far from the monastery main entrance.

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