Salamanca bound

My husband and I will be spending two nights in Salamanca, Spain on the way to Lisbon. I have searched in vain on this board for any recommendations for restaurants in this fascinating town. Has any hound been there recently and want to share their experiences? Muchas gracias!

      Rob- very sorry, we've already been and come back. It was a last minute quest for suggestions. Thank you for getting on to it anyway. For your info, had a fine menu del dia with several choices for 12 euros (surrounded by businessmen and Salamancan ladies who lunch) at a small resto in the Place San Benito (can't remember the name, but the only one there) - away from the maddding crowd. Charming waiter, cod-stuffed pimentos/gazpacho to start; homemade meatballs and rabbit mains,tartes and ice cream, a carafe of very drinkable red wine refilled on request at no extra charge.
      Dinners both nights were tapas on the Place de Liberdad - the outdoor central bar on the left-hand side was the best -packed with locals, waiting room only; tapas one euro with each glass of wine or sangria (red or white). We ended up returning there for breakfast tapas: eggs and ham on toast, soft cheese with quince jelly, etc and excellent coffee in the morniing!
