El Ave offers menu del dia for 10 euros (including alcoholic beverages and dessert), regardless if you seat inside or outside. It’s close to University entrance and their menu was surprisingly great value for the price. We ordered gazpacho, jamon with melon as starters and...More

We enjoyed a mid day meal here for 10 Euros. It surpassed most in this price range....very good paella and wine, plus pasta and roasted chicken. Lovely location very close to the University. Outside tables had same price as inside.

I studied in Salamanca for 3 months and by far one of my favorite places was El Ave. The Desayuno Completo was a great deal. It came with coffee, fresh oj, and a pastry for less than $5. It was a great place to start...More
