There were a lot of luke-warm recommendations here for dining in Salamanca, so my husband and I asked the receptionist. She recommended the tapas area on Van Dyck street, and we really enjoyed ourselves. Great meat and seafood, and very cheap. We feel like we´ll spend our food money elsewhere in Spain. For those of you still searching, the luke-warm recos were for 1. Jare, 2. Chez Victor, and 3. El Viejo Candil.
