Navacerrada is certainly one of the best known places in the Sierra de Guadarrama. On the banks of the reservoir and being the starting point to climb to the Puerto de Navacerrada, it is always nice to walk around its Plaza Mayor and its surroundings with its wide gastronomic offer.
And within the Plaza Mayor we find Carande, a restaurant started by one of those chefs who, despite his youth, have very clear ideas and have enough experience to develop them. Carlos Carande obtained the Grand Diploma and the recognition of Best Student of his promotion at Cordon Bleu, from there, he went on to do his internship at DSTAgE and, later, he joined Zuberoa where, 18 months and 120 of his own dishes later, he decided to embark on his own path and set up his restaurant in the Sierra de Guadarrama at less than 30 years of age.
But, in addition to Carande, Navacerrada offers a wide range of traditional cuisine in restaurants like Felipe, La Parrilla de Pedro, El Portillón, Nébula or El Rumba or original plans like La Raclette or El Portugués without forgetting the famous chocolate with croutons of “Félix, el segoviano”, a classic in the whole sierra.
Do not hesitate, Navacerrada is well worth a visit.
