La Traserilla

Reviewed By Fisiomick - Foggia, Italy

I had a "great comida" in there! The truth about this restaurant is that they offer you real spanish specialties with a taste of art! I started with a little "drink&tapas" and then in a wonderful atmosphere I get the chance to try the "menu estivo"! Me and my friends we took 3 different plates of everything in the menu and we shared. It was a real good one! Once back in Palencia I will come back for sure...the Chef owe me a glass of wine 'cause I was able to repeat some "hard-for-italian spanish words" like gazpacho and fascinante :)
Until next time!

Bar La Mejillonera

Es muy conocido por la gente de Palencia, hacen las mejores patatas bravas de la ciudad y unos mejillones de distintas formas increibles, sus paredes estan adornadas por conchas de mejillones.Si vas de tapas por Palencia debes ir a este lugar porque es muy tipico

This is the king of the "Bravas"and you cannot miss the "mejillones escocesa". I dont think you can find any "palentino"(local) that doesn't know about this place. But don't expect a fine restaurant, be ready to eat while you stand up, because this is just a quick stop bar, just a drink and something to eat, what most people call "caña y tapa". SOme years ago used to be very cheap, really really cheap, but now, it became so popular that the prices in my opinion are "fat", if I am not mistaken a plate of bravas was 3 or 3.5 euros!! Also it is true that I remember the price in pts, when for 200pts (now it would be 1.2 euros) you could get the same bravas' plate. But, this doesn't keep me away from stopping by everytime i come back to my hometown. yummy yummy.

El trompicon

A pesar de llamarse el Trompicon a mi me llevaron alli como que ibamos al Guarro, es un sitio muy muy conocido en Palencia capital, en una plancha hacen tortillas, panceta, champis, bueno de todo, con lo que el bocata que te comes sabe un poco a todo, si te quedas mucho tiempo dentro del local puedes salir con olor a fritanga pero es muy muy barato y realmente no esta nada malo. La juventud lo conoce de sobra por dos duros sales cenado de sobra. recomendable, y no muy recomendable a aquellos que busquen un sitio un poco refinado.

Also known as "the Marranillo", this is a really good known place to visit for the poor folks in Palencia. For as low as 50 Euro you and your family can eat a really great number of big snacks and typical dishes - but nothing healthy food, I promise you - of Palencia's meat.
If you want to know Palencia in its deepest way, you should visit "the Marranillo", with no debt. But you should take care with the folks you can find around the Trompicon. Bad guys, poor people, workers and really geekfest people can be found them visiting the Trompicon each day.
And it is even worst during the night!.
But this is the genuine deep pallentine's mistery experience.
Good Luck!.

Reviewed By Lety_Spain - Spain

Cena de pareja el sábado. Pedimos todo para compartir, ración de croquetas, rabas, ensalada de canónigos y queso de Cabra y chuletón de 500 gramos. Todo estaba bien, correcto. Respecto a la cantidad es mucha y no fuimos bien asesorados, ya que le preguntamos al que nos tomó nota y nos dijo que estaba bien, que no quitásemos nada. Por lo demás bien, excepto el tema de la extracción de humos, ya que sales con olor. Correcto

Pizzeria Siciliana Kuro

In this small, it is intended that all its pizzas and other products transmit all the enthusiasm and authenticity of the human group that works with utmost devotion and dedication to our customers taste the real Sicily, because everything we offer is made by hand and with natural ingredients and lots of love ...

Reviewed By Rebrites - Spain

Can't say how excited we are to have found Kuro. We live in a village outside Palencia, and had resigned ourselves to Castilian Castilian and more Castilian when we eat out... people around here are NOT adventurous diners.
I found Kuro here on TripAdvisor, and we went straightaway the next time we went to town. WOW! Real Sicilian, just like I grew up with back in Pittsburgh... calzones! Scamorza cheese! Ventricina salami! Our one-person pizzas were perfectly sized and beautifully baked in a wood-fired oven; the wine list is small but very reasonable, service was friendly and attentive, and the facility itself was very very clean.
Five stars!

Los Candiles

Reviewed By Frequentflyer046 - Buckinghamshire

Three of us tried the delights of this great restaurant, the portions are big , we had Crevittes that were the size of langoustines (They filled the plate about a dozen or so), potatoe and ham croquettes that were delicious and loads of them.
There is a large selection of steaks available here and any size you want , (You can pay by the KG). The only warning is that the medium steaks come out Med rare , and if you ask for medium rare , well, a good vet could have brought it round.
Saying this , the food was excelllent the service spot on , and nice local white wine available also. We would go back again.

Reviewed By Yolanda P - Palencia, Spain

Tiene un menu diario, para mi gusto caro 18 euros, en el que puedes elegir varios primeros como gambones a la plancha, alubias con calamares, menestra palentina, esparragos, puerros, sopa de ajo... y varios segundos: entrecot, lechazo a la plancha, pechuga de pollo, pimientos rellenos.. El fin de semana este menu es mas caro. Tambien tiene tablas, yo no las he probado, mixtas de carne y pescado. El local para mi gusto es oscuro y el camarero la verdad que no es muy simpatico. La comida para mi gusto cara para lo que es.
