El Capricho restaurant

At a very short distance from La Bañeza we find Jiménez, a small pottery village with just a thousand neighbors, watered by the Jamuz River, which gives it its surname. It is flanked by a mountain covered of oaks at its entrance, and by a saw of pines in its term. These plains have seen passing across Astures, Romans, Visigoths and Mozarabic people.

From the latter, they inherited the art of clay; up to thirty furnaces were lit some days in the hundred workshops that used to be open in the 19th century.

The Romans bequeathed the art of wine. More than three hundred centuries-old “caves” survive today in the fertile plain of the river.

José Gordón (an experienced grill chef) keeps his treasures in one of these caves. El Capricho explains the history of these lands and their landscapes of mud, earth wines and oak charcoal that stoke the fire and give a singular taste to the grill.

The cuisine at El Capricho keeps the flavors of these memories with simplicity and tradition. The specialization in red meat has turned this restaurant into a meat lovers’ landmark. People from all over the world come to our house in search of the best meat.
