I went there and although I had not booked they found me a place. The restaurant is quite small. I ordered a Portuguese menu as Avila is well known for its good meat, so I had cod instead. It was nicely cooked and delicious. So...More

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.

Just off the Plaza mayor, down the corner steps by the church, is this hidden gem of a bar/restaurant. Despite atrocious language skills on my part - not helped by the fact that much of the menu is in Portuguese and Catalan - the staff...More
