The "Venta del Soton"
Restaurant established in 1967 near of the Sierra de Guara in the pre-Pyrenees of Aragon, on the tourist route to The Collegiate Volley, Castle Loarre and Riglos Mallos.
Architecturally it is very peculiar, it`s shaped Aragonese house, the facade is covered with ivy, the roofs are slate and possess a circular fireplace typical of the mountain area, is not only decorative, but also is used for roasting grilled.
This fireplace is surrounded inside with "cadieras", small tables placed against the walls as was customary in the houses of the High Pyrenees and where you can enjoy the fire tasting a fine wine from the area.
The dining rooms have wood-beamed ceilings, giving them a cozy feel and are decorated in a classic style, with bronze figures and paintings chosen primarily of Aragonese authors.
The kitchen of the "Venta del Sotón" aims to encourage traditional-Aragonese cuisine without forgetting its origin, its grill, its cuisine and its signature seasonal perfectly combined with impeccable and attentive room service that complements a philosophy of life, "The passion for food."
In 1964 Mister Leon Acín acquires in Esquedas, a lot near the gas station he owned at that time with their children.
Three years later, in 1967, along with his wife, the alma mater, Miss Pepita Boned and three of their children in front, decide to open a small bar offering traditional Aragonese food and grilled food to meet the demand of people they used the main road to France.
Mister Alberto Boned drawn on a napkin the form of that little bar that was given the name of a nearly river, Soton, and began with a large wooden bar, the curious fireplace, 6 tables and 8 square meters of kitchen.
Miss Pepita is the cooker and her children help in different ways: Luis in the grill, Jesus to serve the tables and Lorenzo tending the bar.
Step by step was growing and professionalised the restaurant until today, where it is now Ana Acín, daughter of Lorenzo, which continues the saga in this temple of Aragonese gastronomy, always with the same enthusiasm and ideals that his father teach her:
"The quality has to be above everything."

What to visit?
The Restaurant "Venta del Sotón" is located in the province of Huesca.
The name comes from the ancient celtiberian place called Bolskan (habited by suesetanos tribe), having more than 2000 years of history, then the name will change according to the different cultures that came, Osca in Roman period, Waska in Arabic and in the present named as Huesca.
Note the importance of our province in the formation of the Aragon's Kingdom, You can visit places such as San Juan de la Peña (old royal pantheon), Ainsa (site of the miracle of the Sobrarbe's oak) or in Huesca (the hill St. George, site over the famous Battle of Alcoraz which appeared riding a white horse) these legends as part of the two quarters in the shield of Aragon. But situating us around the Restaurant, at the foot of the "Sierra de Guara", known as the Kingdom of the Mallos, you can complete a great day of culture, sport and gastronomy. (Always calculating the distances from the restaurant)
Routes by car:
7 kms. Bolea, its winding streets whisper his past as a defensive site. We can delight us with its famous altarpiece of the Collegiate
14 kms. in the city of Huesca, we can visit the old gothic Cathedral with a beautifull altarpiece. Close there is the Diocesan Museum and in the same square there is the City Hall, an old Aragonese Renaissance palace, where we can enjoy the Casado del Alisal painting "The Bell of Huesca".
Near the square are the provincial archaeological museum (was the palace of the Kings of Aragon and the old university of Sertorio, the first school held in Spain by the rebel Sertorius) and the old San Pedro (with beautiful capitals in the cloister and where are buried the rests of Alfonso the Battler and Ramiro II the Monk).
Around Huesca we can also visit the Castle of Montearagón, the "Salto de Roldán", the new astronomical center 0.42 located in Walqa (Zaragoza´s Road) or for lovers of art and architecture the CDAN (Center for Art and Nature), designed by Moneo with regular exhibitions and preserves the legacy of the painter Beulas (Venta del Soton's road from Huesca).
15 kms. we find one of the best preserved castles in Europe, Loarre Castle, a fortress nestled within the rock, security of the Kingdom of Mallos, where a few kilometers we can find other defensive points as the old Sarsamarcuello Castle (in ruins), where bird lovers can enjoy down the road from the viewpoint of the vultures.
