Tapas in León

A lovely brick-lined interior provides an appealing backdrop for this wildly popular tapas bar and restaurant, which is arguably the pick of the choices around Plaza de San Martín. The food is predominantly from Castilla y León's north, such as cured meats, strong cheeses and roasted red peppers.

It also has some outstanding canned seafood – if you normally turn up your nose at tinned food, here's a very good reason to break the habit.
