La Abadía

Castilian in Toledo

In a former 16th-century palace, this atmospheric bar and restaurant has arches, niches and coloured bottles lined up as decoration, spread throughout a warren of brick-and-stone-clad rooms. The menu includes lightweight dishes and tapas, but the three-course 'Menú de Montes de Toledo' (€20) is a fabulous collection of tastes from the nearby mountains, including partridge, wild mushrooms and almonds (as is the scrumptious marzipan-cum-cheesecake dessert).
