I visited Avila last weekend and read some reviews about this restaurant. The reviews don't to it justice! The actual restaurant decor isn't great, but if you ignore that, it really is a great discovery, great value, service is amazing and the food is really good - homemade and very tasty. The meat is delicious, the salads really fresh and... More

We got a table for the second sitting at 3.30 pm, and were served free drinks as we had to wait 10 mins or so to sit down. The place is small, so it's definitely recommendable to book in advance, especially at the weekend. There was a set menu for 25€ which included a large steak (the speciality in Avila),... More

We had a great experience at Los Candiles Restaurant. Friendly and fast service, and some of the best steaks we have had recently. Huge but perfectly cooked chuletons which were tender and tasty. Excellent simple starters and generous desserts to start and finish the meal and a very pleasant Ribera del Duero all included for 25��� a head. A must... More

We had lunch twice there during our two days trip to Avila. A very nice lady helped us to order food as we don't speak Spanish. She recommended the local soup which was so good that we ordered it again the second day. We also tried three different fish dishes, all very good. The service was excellent as well. Will... More

We needed to reserve a table. The service was excellent an excellent menu. We ate from the al la carte sharing their Chuleton. One of the best steals I have ever eaten and overall not too expensive.

Judiones very tasty, cochonillo and chuleton amazing, though only served with potatoes. Other tables salads looked immense and very appealing. Heard many compliments about the wine selection. Had degustion for pudding and only downside was the cheesecake (Spanish flan-like style) and the apple cake (bit dry for my liking). Restaurant was packed, and understand why. It's quality food at a... More

pretty good compared to other restaurants in Avila. The waiters were a bit disinterested, but the entree was very filling and the main course to follow was too much food.

This restaurante had changed management recently so we had some concerns over the whole experience awaiting us, however we needn't have worried. We were welcomed in (8 of us by phone reservation) and shown to our table. The menu is grouped into a la carte and set menus. The set menus are set by price and have 4-6 choices each... More
