The best raw material and the quality with which the Castilian dishes and dishes from La Mancha are prepared can clearly be noted.
Hotel del Cardenal’s restaurant offers lovingly-prepared cuisine representing the tri-cultural tradition of the city, with each dish expressing the most traditional recipes.
The restaurant is located at the entrance to the garden, and has a capacity for some 200 people. Its rooms have been carefully decorated, with some conserving the original
roofs and coffering, and complemented by dining room tapestries and other decorative elements.
The main granite stairway leads to the "Mezquita"dining room; around a central space the dining room is distributed into eight quarters, finished, alternatively, with Mudejar coffering with star-like patterns and an octagonal vault, from which a replica of Seventeenth Century lantern from a Spanish Galleon hangs.
From the outside the facade offers an interesting combination of Castilian masonry, unpolished granite lintels, and wooden struts and bases. On irregular, rough tiles we reach
the"Greco" and “Mezquita” dining room, with its false plaster lintels inspired in Arabic latticework with a polychrome coffered ceiling from the Sixteenth Century.
The restaurant has a terrace in the garden.
When the weather permits, this makes it an ideal place to have a coffee, a glass of wine, or an aperitif.
