A pleasant but small town with a quirky mix of albergues. There are a number of restaurants in town that offer meals throughout the day.

The Road

Just outside of town, on your left-hand side and likely obscured by tall grass, sits one of San Juan de Ortega’s smaller engineering feats. It only takes one span to cross the diminutive río Vena.

Don't stay here if you can help it. We were all charged full price and not told that there was no hot water. People complained, but the hosts didn't seem interested.

I stayed at the he Albergue La Taberna ( Another sign says Municipal) and there was minimal hot water. Everybody complained about it. Also in the room I stayed in they had four fluorescent tube in a loft area that were supposed to stay on for emergencies. But the room was way too bright and eventually we asked that they turned them off which they did by circuit breaker.  In the morning we turned those back on but out of 15 pilgrims no one could figure out how to turn on the regular lights.

However, I found the Albergue clean and they did take my reservation, which is why stayed there. Previously I stayed in Albergue Fagus which is nicer.

The Pajar Albergue has a for sale sign on it and was not open. It’s website says May 2024 opening.

But the Alquimista restaurant is still there and the food is wonderful! That’s where you’re going for dinner! And Ages has a very nice vibe.- March 2024.

while The Alquimista is open, and has tasty food, the owner aas clear that he doesnt make fast-food… so those with burger dreams per the earlier comments, like me…will have your dreams dashed.

El Rustica has been reopened. The building is a beautifully restored space. The owners are great and the food is wonderful. Definitely stop by!

I hope whoever wanted to propose to his next wife at El Rústica isn’t in a hurry… they’ve torn it down for renovations your review made us hunt it down I WANT THAT BURGER!!!

This place was recommended to us and thank God! I am 58 years old and have lapped this planet over a hundred times. I can say, unequivocally, that this is, and will probably always be, the best Burger I have ever tasted. It is the food equivalent of an Angel crying on your tongue.

The food was a true culinary delight. Everything is fresh and the flavors are incredible. The Angel crying on your tongue is not an exaggeration. The couple that run it are amazing and the place is the perfect ambiance. I will propose to my next wife over a Rustica Burger and glass of wine from Rioja.

Seconding the other post about this gem of a restaurant. Delicious homemade food. Had a wonderful homemade dinner. Breakfast available at 7ish for pilgrims. Lovely people.

Second the recommendation for el alquimista. Had the chicken. It was excellent. The lady was very nice and funny, even with my spotty spanish
