You do not believe it when you see it from outside. But the food is of high class. Stylish and elegant serving. Nice and fast staff. Their sweet bread was amazing in terms of both taste and presentation

On a hot sunny day while visiting Avila, we wandered by this restaurant with an inviting patio protected by umbrellas. A table was free and so we sat down for lunch. We received excellent and friendly service from the moment we arrived. Aperitivos arrived in a flash and our orders were taken quickly. Food appeared on the table shortly after... More

One of the nicest meals I've eaten. Imaginative menu without being stuffy or pretentious. Good service. Not cheap, but good value

The ambience was nice but the food was a disaster. I ordered an entrecote which was not possible to eat. Probably heated up - was cooked some time ago and was put in the freeze. I wouldn't come back again.

We have a lovely lunch. Well served. Nice decoration and food delicious. We noticed that all personal is highly professional . Meat is recommended as Avila have a fantastic meat all around. Great. Very good price also. Toilette perhaps...too small but enough.

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
