The market vault (Market Square, 4 tel. 976 86 82 51) $$$
The best of traditional Aragonese and market cuisine in an old 16th century cellar perfectly restored.
José Manuel Baya is the owner (and almost everything) of this restaurant specialized in recovering and updating many of the recipes of the Aragonese acquis.
His personality, warm and welcoming, is transmitted to dishes such as scrambled borage with prawns and pine nuts, crêpe de morcilla with pate sauce or partridge and delights of pan.
The wines (mostly Cariñena, of course) are a fundamental part of the local pleasure.
Savoy 21 (Marrodán, 34 tel. 976 64 35 15) €€
The Aragonese recipe book updated from an excellent raw material. It is located in the old casino of the city.
This restaurant, run by chef José Tazueco, is famous, especially for its grill, in which wonderful ternascoes are prepared (the one that presents stuffed with couscous is surprising).
But the menu goes further, through dishes like the stuffed with mousse of milkweed mousse with cream of foie gras or thistle salad.
Its cava is very well stocked, especially with references from Campo de Borja.
The grenade (San Ignacio de Loyola, 14 tel. 976 22 39 03) $$ - $$$
Contemporary kitchen. A classic that in recent times has adjusted its offer to continue offering an appetizing proposal adapted to the times.
Granada is one of the essential names of Zaragoza. With a central location, its menu of dishes has a classic cut and more current details. Lately he has redefined his letter, adjusting prices.
Eggplant and hummus tartare, spiced breast and quince aioli; veal, quinoa, nuts and chestnut puree. During the week they have a highly recommended menu.

Méli Mélo (Major, 45 tel. 976 29 46 95) €
Almost everyone knows him for his tapas, but here he also comes to try (with table and tablecloth) his international cuisine.
Its owners define it as a restaurant with creative and market cuisine.
Of course, they fully comply with this leit motiv: frog legs with romesco sauce; Asian rice with squid; almond cod; suck ternasco chups ...
It specializes in celebrations of all kinds, so you have to take it into account on specific dates.

Their proposals go through dishes as celebrated as "sea flavor"; the pigeon with quinoa and peach from Calanda or the roast suckling pig with chickpea and lime puree.

Palomeque Restaurant (Agustín Palomeque, 11 tel. 976 21 40 82) $$
Spanish cuisine sublimated with the good work of the sommelier Miguel Arlés.
Two equally attractive concepts: a skewer bar and a dining room for classic dishes based on an exceptional product: Hake, tuna belly of Guetaria or Palomeque potatoes, these are served with duck ham and foie shavings.
