The only restaurant in Zaragoza to have been awarded a Michelin star, La Prensa is a family-run restaurant opened by the father of the current owner, David Pérez, who is also the sommelier.

A sophisticated restaurant with a charming courtyard terrace, El Chalet is located in a former town house or chalet which has preserved much of its original pizzaz.

Gorolai

Restaurant, Spanish, $$$
Save
One of Zaragoza’s most well-known restaurants, Gorolai is like a vitamin burst with its bright orange tables and vivid green walls. This is the kind of place which likes to dress things up a little, with even the simplest of dishes getting a smudge of this or a drizzle of that for full effect on the plate – and locals clearly love it. The dishes are rather creative sounding variations on classic Spanish dishes and can nearly all be ordered as either a full portion or a half portion, ideal for sharing.
