La Mesta's medieval atmosphere and decor are noteworthy: chairs upholstered with plush red velvet, suits of armors, shields and a large fireplace. Though it's not King Arthur's roundtable, it is regularly frequented by important local politicians. It's very near the Plaza Mayor and its cuisine stands out for its somewhat French style. Among the various specialties this restaurant is known for, the Iberian ham and duck foie salad, the baked sea bass with vegetables and clams, and the morucho (beef) entrecote with port wine and foie sauce are the most outstanding. The wine list is very extense with great quality wines to choose from. Moving on to desserts, try the soft ice cream, made with real cream and slightly bitter Seville oranges. It's best to book a table on weekends. They have another restaurant called Pucela on Carretera de Béjar (Tel: +34 923 192 095).
