Eating out in Cáceres
Cáceres offers a wide range of good restaurants and food bars where generous portions are the norm. There is something to suit all tastes and budgets.
Sampling bars and tapas is the best way of getting to know Cáceres, from the Old Town to outlying neighbourhoods.
Pimentón de la Vera from Extremadura is the most treasured spice in Spanish cuisine. It has been awarded a Protected Denomination of Origin (PDO) label.
If you haven’t heard about Extremadura wines, you aren’t the only one. These wines have tended to operate under the radar but thanks to some local producers they are starting to make their mark.
The very tasty popular food of Extremadura derives mainly from seasonal produce, what can almost be termed the nigh subsistence fruit of the earth: very basic things that provide the ingredients for very good, very tasty dishes.
Extremadura has a long ham-making tradition with strong ties both to the region and to the Iberian pigs reared for the prized Jamón Dehesa. If you’re a food buff, you can’t leave without trying it.
