It’s no secret that the province of Huesca is a great place to eat. Not for nothing is it the Aragonese province with the most Michelin-starred restaurants in the whole of Aragon. Here you’ll be able to sample delicious dishes, both traditional cuisine and those that use the most advanced techniques. Prepare your palate because we begin our route through the seven restaurants in Huesca to sample the flavours of Aragon.
Lillas Pastia (Huesca)
A classic restaurant in Huesca, Lillas Pastia was the first Aragonese establishment to obtain a Michelin Star. It achieved it in 1994, and since then it has maintained its commitment to seasonal produce. The great protagonist of its cuisine is the truffle, which even has a menu dedicated to it during the winter. Don’t miss the royal de conejo de campo, the suckling pig with squid stew or the truffle rice.
Casa Anita (San Juan de Plan)
n this charming hotel in the centre of the Aragonese Pyrenees you will not only enjoy incredible views… you will also find one of the best restaurants in Huesca. The terrace of Casa Anita allows you to have a gastronomic experience with all five senses, in the heart of the Posest-Maladeta Natural Park in the Chistau Valley. Its dishes are of high culinary quality and extol the gastronomy of Chistau. We recommend you try their meats fed on the green pastures of the surrounding area: lamb, veal, brass… and don’t forget to try the incredible sausage, Saravillo cheese, pâtés, truffles and mushrooms. The vegetables come from their own garden.
Restaurant Carmen (Binéfar)
Creative signature cuisine with seasonal products. This is the concept that governs the menu at Restaurante Carmen, which changes every four months. You will always find dishes with mushrooms, saffron, cheeses and other local ingredients. In addition, every year they organise a “truffle day” in which they offer a menu featuring this ingredient.
Another Michelin Star, although with a different concept to the previous one. Its bar and open kitchen give it a unique personality that blends tradition and innovation. Tatau specialises in haute cuisine in small bites, in the form of gourmet tapas. We recommend the croquettes, the lobster in three courses or the tasty omelette with marrow and caviar.
We continue from star to star in the restaurants of Huesca with Callizo, one of the latest additions to the Michelin guide in the province of Huesca. It is located in the Pyrenees, in Aínsa, and mountain cuisine with local produce is its speciality. Its 15-course tasting menu offers a journey through the region with dishes such as grilled potatoes with truffled butter, beef sirloin from the Broto valley or truffled lamb.
Bodegas del Somontano Restaurant (El Grado)
Another winning option when it comes to enjoying traditional Aragonese and, more specifically, Pyrenean recipes. The menu of this restaurant in Huesca is based on meat and vegetables, although we should also highlight the Cinca salmon, cooked with fried garlic and eels.
N de la Venta del Sotón (Esquedas)Finally, a Michelin-starred restaurant in Huesca, Espacio N is the most avant-garde version of the dining room at Venta del Sotón. It officially opened its doors last May and is committed to recovering traditional Aragonese recipes, as well as plants from the surrounding area that were previously used in the kitchen. Among the must-try dishes are the bisalto or the three different versions of veal. Ideal for lovers of traditional cuisine who are not afraid to innovate.
