We just happened to find this gem by the roadside on a return from a stay at a nearby Casa Rural. It was a very pleasant find.
My Spanish wife and I started with the Sopa Castellana and Criadillas de Tierra and enjoyed both appetizers. I couldn't pass up the "Chuletón de Avila" as I'm a beef lover myself. It was very respectable and tasty - not the best I've had but very good. My wife had the Perdiz Estofada (Partridge Stew) which was delectable.
We enjoyed our bottle of Yllera red wine and resolved to try and get this wine again back home in Madrid. The desserts and coffee were excellent including Tiramisu (which my wife can't resist) and mine was Cerazas Heladas (cherries with ice cream). Wonderful!
This restaurant has an unusual tradition. They have a wall of corks from the wine bottles served to their guests with dates and notes written on the corks displayed behind a clear heavy plastic partition attached to a wall of the restaurant. I wrote the year on the tip of my cork and "Estupendo" on the barrel of the cork to the delight of our waitress. It was truly a "Great" lunch and I would return to Casa Fermín in an instant.
We spent exactly 80 Euros which was a bargain in my experience.
