    Barbacana (not the downstairs, but the upstairs): One of the Best Restaurants we ate at in Spain!

    To the east (and just a little south) of the Cathedral in Avila, across the street, is the quaint Plaza of Santa Teresa. Tucked in a back corner there is an awesome restaurant called Barbacana. There is a casual tapas bar downstairs and a more formal restaurant upstairs; upstairs doesn't open until 9 PM (hey, it's Spain). It is the UPSTAIRS restaurant that you want to eat at.

    It is bistro in its essence.

    Two of my daughters and I spent two weeks traveling throughout the western half of Spain in April 2007 in a rental car. From Seville up to Santiago and lots of points in between. Every night we ate at a top shelf restaurant. Money was no object. Breakfast and lunch were light and on the cheap side but supper at the end of the day was our treat; we wrapped up and remembered the day just spent and planned the day(s) ahead.

    Of all the really, really excellent food that had 14 nights in a row, this place was the favorite of mine as well as the favorite of each of my two adult daughters!! 3 for 3 = Unanimous

    It wasn't cheap but it was worth every euro!!

  • Restaurant Palomar: huge piece of meat!

    by djferros Written Dec 27, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I got a huge piece of meat with pepper and fries.

    the house wine goes down well with meat. (Chuleton)

    Favorite Dish: not many tables here for some reason, most people seem to snack at the bar so get here early.

    The info below is from another website;
    "Then we move to “El Palomar”, in Tomas Luis de Victoria street, where you can try squid and prawns “a la gabardina”. We recommend the tasty combination of fish with pepper which won “El Palomar” a first place in Avila’s annual Championship of Tapas."

    Casa Felipe: Do you have a good appetite?

    by El_Sueco Written Apr 16, 2004

    Choletones etc

    This is the Hostal Casa Felipe Restaurante.
    From the street you enter the bar, the appearance is quite modest seen from the street. Pass the bar and get in to the restaurant which has a maximum number of 42 guests.
    Then you sit down in the clean and cosy restaurant. The serving is very attent and very quick.
    The hostal is a dubbelstar.

    Favorite Dish: Ensalata mixte, Chuletones, pan, cerveza, biscuit, yemas and café.
    Just look at the photo, do I have to explain that?!

    Local Spanish Delights... and Tapas!

    Around the Main Square of Avila

    If you're expecting to dine in a Michelin-rated restaurant in Avila...er... it doesn't exist. ;-)

    The inhabitants of Avila are very friendly and nice; but most importantly, they lead very simple quiet lives.

    You can find a few good Tapa bars along the Main Square of the town. If you are very hungry and need to order food with substantial fillings, you can always lean back to the local specialities of Spain.

    Yes, small restaurants here do serve Suckling Pig (Spanish style)... or veal... and trout (fish).

    For desserts, we tried their local delights like - Huesillos Fritos (really good!) and Las Glorias de Avila. However, we both gave wine a skip... 'Tis all about healthy living these days for us!

    But if you are an avid wine conoisseur, you may wish to ask them for their local speciality.
