Casa Alberto

Barrio de las Letras

One of the city's most evocative old tabernas, hung with oil paintings and presided over since its opening by Segovians. It still has its old zinc bar complete with running water trough to keep the wine cool and a draught beer head with five founts. Try lambs' trotters, garlicky prawns, chorizo in cider or oxtail stew as tapas, or as more substantial dishes in the restaurant at the back.
