Airport dining gem

Terminal 1 at MEX is home to a couple of decent restaurants, however surprising this may seem. This one is Spanish theme and my every expectation was far exceeded. Gazpacho is one of those seemingly-simple offerings that usually disappoints, but this was among the best I've had in this hemisphere... read more

And even if this restaurant wasnt at the airport it would be a fantastic restaurant for lunch ir dinner. Service is attentive and polite, prices are reasonable and the quality of its Spanish fare is exceptional. What is there not to like?

If you want to try some really good Spanish food don't miss it. You won't be disappointed. Every time I land at this airport I try to go there.

Very friendly staff. Menu has plenty of choices from small plate to soup to salad to seafood to meat. Lentil soup is so delicious. I would suggest order to share. Salted fish is good but it's an acquired taste. Grilled octopus is excellent and soft if you like octopus. Pork taco is one of th best ever. Great choice a... More

I ate at Casa Avila several times and I get upset when I don t have enough time to eat there. I always had good food there. The calamari is always my first choice. It is served with 3 different sauces all excellent. The tuna is excellent. I have sent friends there and apparently the Oslo bucco is also great.... More

this restaurant is in Terminal 2 of the Mexico City airport. Usually, I do not associate airport dining with good places but this is definitively a good choice. All dishes were very good, particularly the roasted piglet (cochinillo asado). The Spanish potato cake was also very good. The white wine was a little on the weaker side but overall this... More

I have been eating here 4 times over the years. Service is absolutely comparable to the one of a city Restaurant. Menù has a large-enough variety of options. You're quickly served, no doubt. I always enjoyed, but this time a clam with awful smell was served to a colleague -strange that they didn't notice it in the kitcken. Also, I... More

Went here more on hope than expectation as good dining in airports is not our norm. Reality however was a triumph. Very good Spanish menu. Fast service. Paella was very good. Likewise croquettes. Good value. Authentic setting. Rate highly.
