El Almacen

Reviewed By Argentinaexpert23 - Reston VA

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 Rojos" red fruits...with yoghurt which was light and not too sweet,,a clear winner. Price was good, we did nit sample the wines, but stuck to beer to keep the price down, this restaurant is a winner

Restaurante Alcaravea

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

El Molino de la Losa

Reviewed By Ekrols - Madrid, Spain

This restaurant is situated just out of the walls of Avila and is an ancient watermill with beautifull surroundings.
We went on a Wednesday and luckely we reserved a table. The restaurant was full around 2.30 pm.
After a very nice and professional waiter welcomed us with a treat (mashed potatoes with tomato puree and tocino), we enjoyed a Sopa Castilliana and Asparragus with Aubergines as an appetizer.
Portions are big so we were a kind of full.
The main course was a Cochinillo and a Chuleton de carne rojo. Both excellent and a very big portion so we had to work hard to finish pur plates.
We did not take dessert but asked for a digestif. The waiter offered us very generously (free) Orujo and Chinchon with our coffee.
We will certainly return.

We had a touristic menu which consisted of different traditional Castillian specialties (chuletón, sopa castellana, patatas meneás, ...). Everything was good and tasty, but not exceptional. The waitress was very attentive and nice, and we got our food after a short while.

La Escalera

Reviewed By Daniel M - Oslo, Norway

The chef is outstanding and you can find a broad menu (including a very good menu of the day). She is a specialist in bacalao (cod) dishes (you can find multiple recipes), although any course is a winner. Even the desserts are outstanding!
The service is polite and attentive.
I've come back many times and will do it again.

Los Candiles

Reviewed By Nomar A - Windhoek

If you are looking for a modern, refine, up class restaurant, you are in the wrong place. But if you want typical Spanish food, unpretentious but solid in taste and well executed, you are in the right place. We had "croquetas", which were delicious, and "pimientos del piquillo rellenos", a delight. Mention apart, the meat. They mature it for several weeks depending on the kind and the taste and texture is beautiful. I read some comments about the lack of English understanding ability by the staff. Yep, Spain in general does not speak English and this restaurant is an example. I get the frustration of not understanding each other and that sometimes this can cause misconceptions, but the staff was professional and friendly. They were very nice to us.

El Tostado

Reviewed By martin66 - Sonoma County

I made the mistake of being lured by the attractive indoor atrium setting of el Tostado during a day trip to Avila. The meal started out miserably with a tapas appetizer that contained what I can only describe as putrid shrimp. Main courses were marginally better but only somewhat.
It is not impossible to make delicious food with less than the best or freshest ingredients. This kitchen seemed either not to know how, or simply didn't care.

Palacio de los Velada

Reviewed By Rula L - Boca Raton

We went to their beautiful patio, for a coffee and something sweet after visiting the Cathedral. We were horrified by the lack of service and the rudeness of the waitress. The place was empty even though it was lunch time in Spain. We asked if it was OK just to stop by for a coffee and we were told that it was perfectly fine. We were with Spanish speaking friends so the rudeness was not a problem caused by a language barrier. We are used to the lack of customer service that reigns in Spain. However, this is probably one of the worst experiences we ever had, even for the lax Spanish standards. The woman in charge of the covered patio did not acknowledged us at all, we had to get up from the table where we were sitting to order our coffees and dessert. After waiting for 15 minutes for one of the guests' orders, which we found out it was sitting on the counter next to the lazy waitress, we walked to the counter, paid and left without leaving any tip for the first time in our lives. When we complained to the hotel manager for the service, he made excuses and said that their service is excellent and that everyone is entitled to have a bad day.

Soul Kitchen

Reviewed By Bart v - Zwolle, The Netherlands

This is the first time that we only sat about 120 seconds in a restaurant. We came in, sat down. After one minute the waitress came and we asked if we could eat something. She looked strange, said she didn't speak English and left. After 30 seconds we looked at each other and decided to leave. There is a first time for everything....
