With great touristic affluence, it’s not strange that many of the most recommendable restaurants in Avila are found in hotels. The restaurant at the hotel Las Cancelas, with a beautiful indoor patio, is a Castilian classic with a touch of innovation, splendid croquettes and delicious torreznos. The Avilanian chuletón steak and the lamb, grilled or baked, are also great.
Piedras Albas (in the Parador de Avila) and La Puerta del Alcazar, are restaurants that offer, in addition to their individual menu, menus for groups. If you’re looking for plates of meat these restaurants are a great option.
El Almacen, located outside the Avila wall, is, without any doubt, the best restaurant in the city. Traditional and creative recipes accompanied by a spectacular wine cellar. The menu combines tradition with modern touches. We recommend the magnificent views of the wall while you eat cocochas de merluez al pil pil, a highly acclaimed dish amongst those who have dined there.
Hidden on a street where it seems as though nearly no one pases is Los Candiles, a small dining room that’s always crowded and boasts of serving the best Chuleton de Avila. They also have suckling pig, lamp chops, redondo of veal and some splendid roasted potatoes with torreznos.
