When Cervantes ate here in the late 16th century, he called Las Escobas a taberna antigua, since it had already been around since 1386. That makes it (probably) the oldest eating establishment in Europe. Las Escobas has been in the hands of its current owners for more than 40 years. Of all the restaurants on and just off the cathedral square, we feel this spot gives the best value for the money and does the best job preparing traditional cuisine.
