Toledo: Of Course, We Had To Eat!

So, did you think I wasn’t going to tell you about the food?!?

We had a few disappointing restaurant experiences in Toledo. Our first night, we went to a restaurant recommended by our hotel. It was classy and expensive. The food was exceptional. Our waitress was pleasant enough. Everyone else was indifferent — to everyone — to the point of being rude. It was called Alfileritos 24 and we would never go back.

There were a couple of other disappointments before San Geraldo and I finally went to a place called Cafe Del Fin (click here for their website). It had looked interesting as we passed by one day. It was closed that night when we went back in a downpour. So, our last night we tried again and we were in luck.

The food was excellent. The prices were surprisingly reasonable (Toledo’s prices are much higher than Fuengirola’s). And the service from the two servers/bartenders was beyond compare. Warm, friendly, charming, professional. A cool crowd, too. Too bad Judyshannonstreetwhat was under the weather and didn’t get to experience this meal.

MID-MEAL, OUR LADY OF FÁTIMA PROCESSED DOWN THE STREET
AND PASSED RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE RESTAURANT.
NO ONE IN THE RESTAURANT KNEW WHY…
SAN GERALDO’S “DEATH BY CHOCOLATE.”
