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.

Best service in long time! I took "Solomillo" for me and it was, simply, delicious. It has a terrace and an upstairs saille with balcony opposite the Cathedral. Well decorated and some good manners required (not obligatory): better not top tanks neither flip flop. This restaurant wonders to keep a classic high standard environment. Bottled water+ Red house wine+ Bread... More

We had a beautiful meal on a cool and very calm night in Avila. The wine was perfect and everything we tasted was just perfection from the judias blanca, a very intriguing revuelto de morcilla and la pièce de résistance: solomillo de ternera. The only drawback was a liberal use of air freshener in the dining room. Bizarre. Once the... More

Four of us stopped by without reservation for lunch and were immediately made welcome. The restaurant is obviously popular so we were lucky to get a table in this authentic and bustling restaurant. Good choices on menu including many local and classic Spanish dishes. Excellent bottle of wine and friendly service means we will be back when next in the... More

This restaurant was very near the hotel we were staying (Palacio de los Velada) and was recommended not only by Trip Advisor, but our hotel. We were not disappointed. We showed up "late for lunch" around 3:00 when most folks were finishing up, but they were very welcoming. English menu was a plus. We ordered the steak at medium and... More

Perfect European service by a friendly waiter. Veal chop as thick as an American steak, perfectly cooked skate and a thick veal burger for our 8 year old. House wine at 14 euros, tasted good to this unsophisticated palette. Nice view out of second floor window. Modern music on sound system. Good experience.

Ávila is a gem and this restaurant was a surprising find. The service superb, the menu original and exquisite. Located just steps from the cathedral it was the perfect ending to a wonderful day in this charming walled city.
