This restaurant, which is in an excellent location with a historic, original interior, did not have food to match. No issue with the service, but this is the first time I can recall having eaten less than 50% of my main course. I may have...More

We decided to stop by Avila on the way to Salamanca at the spur of the moment, so didn't research restaurants there and ended up relying upon cathedral staff recommendation and with a hefty bill for a party of 8. Good thing that I noticed...More
