Best octopus dish I have ever had. The people at the restaurant were not English speaking but was very patient with me. Nothing more I can ask for as a tourist.

Not just the same "patatas revolconas" and "chuleton" fare as most of the places around "la plaza de la victoria / el chico". The daily menu is very cheap and a little more varied than most places, including an excellent selection of deserts. Very good...More

I have spent two weeks in Avila, and during this period, I did spend some time and money at various restaurants in Avila. However, out of all the places, I must admit, I always longed to return to this place. It serves great food. I...More
