We were there for lunch at 14.00 on Saturday in July 2015. The place was empty, we thought it was late- maybe they about to close? How wrong we were! Few minutes after we ordered our food, more people kept coming. It was packed, full with happy customers. We enjoyed the food. We decided to skip the wine, after 12... More

Found the restaurant just by the Cathedral, and thought it looked genuine. As we stood there, we watched two businessmen go in - so knew it was the right choice! Gazpacho for me and fresh anchovies for husband, then cod for me and monk fish and prawns for him. A couple of bottles of albarino, and we hugely enjoyed our... More

Great meat from Avila's beef accompanied by excellent " patatas revolconas". Perfect view to the cathedral.

We took shelter from a cold day in Avila after the visit to the Cathedral [which is literally right across the little plaza from this restaurant]. The second story location gave a very cute view and the place was decorated in a heart warming red. The service was impeccable from the get go, the food was sublime-- from the bread,... More

not just because we were trying to eat at 20.30 - not that smart this part of Spain - so many restaurants were closed even though it was a weekday night we ended up at Alcaravea not really by choice. We were welcomed - as the only diners not surprising so with the rather old fashioned decor and just two... More

I had booked this restaurant after the good reviews. We were not disappointed. We were a little early as it had been wet and arrived a bit before 9 pm. We were welcomed by a very nice gentleman to choose a table we wished to sit at. The evening just got sunnier. The food was excellent and the wine that... More

We were extremely happy with our lunch. The food was tasty and reasonable and the service was great. Sat outside with a view of the Cathedral. Highly recommend Judias de Blanco.

Anyone heard about an economic crisis hitting Spain very hard? This restaurant continues as if nothing happened, taking the customer for granted. The food was not impressive at all. Daily cuisine. Send staff back to school, so that they can learn why and how some Spanish restaurants belong to the best in the world. Others apparently do not care ....... More

Restaurant is located in the center of town. Had no reservations and showed up for lunch. They had no problem seating us. The food was regional and excellent! We had croquettes, white bean stew and the Iberia ham and vegetable risotto. We noticed there were a lot of "locals" in the restaurant, which is always a good sign.
