Can anyone please recommend a good restaurant to stop by for lunch. I will be driving from Madrid to Elceigo (in La Rioja) on Monday May 14th and I am looking for somewhere to stop by in the country or small village and have a good lunch with my wife.

Thank you in advance.

    Casa Antón at Lerma (province of Burgos) is an unpretentious restaurant serving delicious roast lamb and basic salads. Also, Lerma is a nice village to stroll.

      Thank you JuanDoe,

      You put Lerma on the map for me as a very viable stop during my drive, I really appreciate it. This is exactly the type of place I am looking for.

      Are you local to the region, or do you travel there a lot? If so, would you mind terribly taking a look at my other thread and commenting when you have a chance.

      Thanks again.
