I come to los candiles every three months for a great steak de Avila. The service is great and the owner is very friendly. You need to reserve first to have a table for groups. Highly recommended.

You will find the tastiest 1-inch thick Chuletón de Ávila here. You will not regret this. I was on a small road trip with a Spanish friend of mine. We sought Ávila for a half-day road trip. After wondering around the walled city we looked...More
