The city of Toledo was once the capital of Spain, and it continues to embody the traditional spirit of the Castilla La Mancha region that was captured in Cervantes’ classic tale of Don Quijote. Visitors to Toledo expect to see classic sites, such as the Cathedral, the Alcázar, and even a windmill. On the food front, visitors expect to eat hearty Castilian dishes, prepared in a very traditional manner.
What you may not expect to find in Toledo is a restaurant that takes traditional, Castilian dishes, and transforms them into new and innovative dishes that are sure to please both traditional food lovers and those looking for a new take on the classics. If you are looking for the latter, then Locum Restaurante, located just a short walk from the Cathedral, in the historic city center, is the place to go.
Locum is a charming restaurant housed in a traditional 17th C. building, with an interior Toledo-patio that is 3 stories high and is ringed with wooden banisters, and topped with a wood-beamed ceiling. Chef Victor Sánchez-Beato has created a menu that pays homage to the classics, while putting his own, modern twist on them. Classic dishes, such as Cocido (Spanish stew), Turrón de Higado de Pato (duck liver pate), Bacalao (cod fish), and Rabo de Toro (stewed bull tail) are all prepared so delicately that even if you’ve had them many times before, you will feel as though you are trying something totally new, yet familiar, at the same time.
Whether you find yourself in Toledo for one day or a few days, be sure to include leave enough time for a meal at Locum Restaurante.
