Great restaurant with views of the walls. We got there right when it opened and was seated immediately. The waitstaff were very friendly and patient with us since we had difficulties ordering in Spanish. We had the loin and the avila steak. It was a but much for us but everything was very tasty! I personally loved the loin. The... More

we had a wonderful dinner at the El Alacen, which boosts real Spanish, but also very international food, the staff is extremely friendly, the ambience pleasant and reasonable quiet, so it is possible to hear each other when conversing, good choice of excellent wine against very good prices..

We took a taxi from downtown, though you could walk it in 20-30 minutes. Smallish food selection but each dish exquisitely prepared. We were four and we had both fish and pork dishes which were all great. I will not describe them in detail, since the menus changes regularly, we had the in house daily prepared ice cream, today "Frutos... More

The best food, best view and best staff we encountered on our eight day tour of Spain. The restaurant is just outside Avila's historic city walls and across the river on the west side of the city. On entering the restaurant we were ushered one floor down in a small elevator to a beautiful outdoors area where our table for... More

Excellent wines with one of the most complete wines list. Kind people and view to "Las murallas de Avila". Try the Arenques or Nudo I de Morcilla.

One of the best restaurants I have ever been. The service is exquisite. The wine choice immense. And every single course: starters, main courses and desserts, are all delicious... You can feel the quality and freshness of the products. Let the maitre to give some advise...you won't regret it!

We wanted to experience this restaurant because of its high reputation in a number of travel guides. The meal did not disappoint. We deliberately chose two different starters and main courses and each was well prepared and presented with delicious flavours. Service was polite and attentive and there is an english menu for non Spanish speakers. Overall cost of €73,... More

Set in a renovated warehouse with views overlooking the Avila city walls, the interior has a modern "design" feel to it. Traditional local dishes, including the famous Chuleton of Avila, so come hungry! Mixed tapas to start with were very good. For those interested the bar has an extensive collection of single malt whiskys.

This restaurant outside the Avila walls is not within the usual path of an Avila tour but it is worth the extra ten minutes or so, to cross the bridge. An old warehouse has been converted into a fine dining restaurant with windows facing the legendary walls. The day we visited the appetizer special was grilled, and then lightly gratinated... More
