Had dinner at this venue more than one occasion during a 5 day stay at Salamanca. The meal was reasonably priced but more importantly it was very tasty. The servers were very hospitable and made the team of us very comfortable and relaxed. We thoroughly...More

Give this place a wide bearth. We stopped for lunch on a day trip to Salamanca. We both ordered from the menu del dia. My dishes were probably worthy of 2 stars, forgetable and seemingly put together with little thought or care. However my wife...More

We decided to stop at this sidewalk cafe on the way back from a hike. I wish we hadn't. The waiter was upset that we didn't want a whole meal. We only wanted tapas. I had the hamburger slider, which was actually quite good. My...More

Nice restaurant with very friendly staff offering an interesting selection of tapas. In fact you can sample any of the main courses on the menu as a tapa for 2 euros. What a good idea. Seemed very popular with the locals as well.

After a long walk decided to stop at this place for a caña and some tapas. Nice tapas, and a service with a smile!

El Ave offers menu del dia for 10 euros (including alcoholic beverages and dessert), regardless if you seat inside or outside. It’s close to University entrance and their menu was surprisingly great value for the price. We ordered gazpacho, jamon with melon as starters and...More

It's a great place to go in the afternoon, because although it's just across the street from the door to the university, all the tourists are having lunch (or sleeping it off), so it's very quiet. Cool and shady too. Discuss graphic design or football...More
