The local cuisine is based on meat products like Avilan beef, pork –especially the suckling pig- and game meat. The torreznos, chichas, calderetas, migas de pastor and morcilla de calabaza are also some of the dishes that stand out. These dishes are perfect for regaining strength after visiting this historic village, and former residence of the Dukes of Alba, Goya and Jovellanos.

Because of its proximity to El Barco de Avila, an area with a variety of Judías de El Barco with I.G.P., we find typical dishes like the judías con perdiz. During autumn, the multitude of dishes with mushrooms as the main component surprised us. In Piedrahita, pastries are also popular, especially the buñuelos, floretas, turrillos, huesos de santo, leche frita, mantecados and perrunillas.

In the bar La Cabaña they prepare excellent toast, especially the tosta de boletus con foie. Their various croquetas are the perfect dish to share and try their original recipes. Their tapas and wines are also popular for their excellent quality.

You will find many establishments where you can eat in Piedrahita, we will only highlight some of them. El Rubio offers traditional cuisine with a modern twist. Their daily specials are handmade and include an assortment of food at a good price. The restaurant decorations may not be the most modern, in fact quite the opposite is true, but that doesn’t change the quality of the food.

The restaurant Goya offers a cuisine based on tradition. This restaurant is like our previous option, with nothing modern, but it is still an exceptional meal. The patatas revolconas with torreznos, lasaña de carne and boletus, and mousse de queso con membrillo are delicious! In the hostel restaurant Gran Duque you will find traditional cuisine and a simple menu, without much charm. Breakfast is the most popular meal here.
