Alfileritos

Cuisine: Spanish

A mix of modern and traditional, Alfileritos is one of the most adventurous restaurants in otherwise quite conservative Toledo. It's laid out over four floors, with a tavern on the ground floor. Diners peer down from tables lined along galleries overlooking the central atrium, and colourfully lit panels clash with old pillars and woodwork. Try the pica-pica menu, which includes red tuna tartare, blue cheese-filled croquettes and duck spring rolls, and follow it up with a decadent chunk of venison – which the waiter proudly informs you has been hunted fresh.

Address: , Calle Alfileritos 24, Toledo,
Telephone: +34 925 23 96 25.

Venta de Aires

Cuisine: Spanish

One of the most historic restaurants in a city that's hardly short on history, Venta de Aires is the choice for those who like things traditional. Dating back to 1891, the restaurant just celebrated its 125th birthday; the interior is all timber beams and wooden furniture, while the food is exquisite. Be sure to try the house recipe of perdiz estofado, or partridge stew.

Address: , Paseo Circo Romano 35, Toledo,
Telephone: +34 925 220 545.

Moderate

La Abadía de Toledo

Cuisine: Spanish

Occupying a beautifully converted 16th-century palace and making the most of exposed brick and vaulting, this atmospheric restaurant successfully combines the functions of tapas bar, café and restaurant, serving both traditional and new dishes and offering a great value menu del día (menu of the day).

Address: , Plaza de San Nicolás 3, Toledo,
Telephone: +34 925 251 140.

La Fabrica de Harinas

Cuisine: Spanish

A beautiful restaurant with a hacienda style setting, La Fabrica de Harinas offers local favourites such as suckling pig. Based out of the Sercotel San Juan de los Reyes hotel, you'd be wise to set aside a whole afternoon here working your way through the many courses and enjoying the idyllic outdoor terrace.

Address: , Calle de los Reyes Católicos 5, Toledo,
Telephone: +34 925 283 535.

Locum

Cuisine: Spanish

Enjoy innovative and creative dishes based on traditional recipes in a beautifully modern-minimalist decorated 17th-century house. Expect wooden galleries and colour-washed walls with original modern artworks. A tasting menu is available along with a la carte, and the wine list is superb.

Address: , Calle Locum 6, Toledo,

Cheap

Alqahira Rincon de Oriente

Cuisine: Middle Eastern

For an alternative to Spanish cuisine, try Alqahira. Decorated and furnished in Moorish style, the restaurant seeks to recapture Spain's Arab past, while the cuisine is a mix of Middle Eastern influences, with plenty of vegetarian options on the menu (not so common in Toledo). The desserts, particularly baklava, come highly recommended.

Address: , Calle de la Ciudad 7, Toledo,
Telephone: +34 925 673260.

Bar Ludeña

Cuisine: Spanish

This friendly place, rated by many as the best tapas bar in Toledo, continues the age-old custom of a free tapas with each drink and serves up a very tasty carcamusa (local speciality spicy stew of meat and tomatoes). In fact, legend has it that the dish was invented by Ludeña's old owner many moons ago – the always-packed restaurant dates back decades.

Address: , Plaza de la Magdalena 10, Toledo,
Telephone: +34 925 223 384.

Gambrinus

Cuisine: Spanish

If you like tavern vibes and no-nonsense cuisine, chances are you'll love Gambrinus. Set in a relatively large, bustling space with wooden tables and exposed brickwork, the service is quick and the food is good – traditional Spanish for the most part with a few Toledano specialities. Try the Carcamusa, a stew of pork, peas and peppers cooked in wine and served in a traditional clay dish.

Address: , Calle Santo Tomé 10, Toledo,
Telephone: +34 925 214 440.

El Refugio de Cristal

With extensive grounds, handsome rooms, fantastic views and a design that mixes the modern with the rustic, El Refugio de Cristal is one of the best casa rurals (rural houses) in the area. It's a bit of a way out of the city, which partly explains the modest price tag, but definitely worth seeking out if you want to combine a city break with a rustic retreat.

Carlos V Hotel

For a bit of old-time glamour, look no further than Carlos V – the likes of Rita Hayworth and John Wayne once stayed in this handsome property. Today the hotel prides itself on offering affordable accommodation in the heart of the city, with great views from its outdoor terrace, while the dining room, whose sweeping arches bear Arabic script, is a must-see.

Hotel Pintor El Greco

This charming and characterful 17th-century former bakery set around a courtyard and boasting light fresh modern colourful bedrooms enjoys a peaceful location in the Jewish Quarter of Toledo. It's named after the city's favourite painter, El Greco, whose museum is right next door.

Fontecruz Palacio Eugenia de Montijo

Toledo's newest luxury hotel is set in a medieval palace in a quiet street 200m (656ft) from the cathedral, is equipped with five-star classic French-style luxury bedrooms, a state-of-the-art spa and one of the city's top restaurants. It doesn't get much more glamorous than this for the price.

Cigarral de Caravantes

Set in a very quiet location across the river and enjoying magnificent views of Toledo from its bucolic patio and outdoor swimming pool, this well-equipped country-style Toledo hotel has a real rustic charm, yet is only a 10-minute walk from the Jewish Quarter of the city.

Hotel del Cardenal

In a wonderful garden setting just inside Toledo's city walls by the main Bisagra gate, this former 18th-century palace of the Archbishop of Toledo has been tastefully restored offering simple rooms and an excellent restaurant. Relatively out of the way, it's something of a quiet haven.
