I didn't expect such a large portion but I couldn't understand the menu in Spanish. But the house menu was very good. The owner/waiter was very friendly and we communicated with a little English and a little Portuguese. The food was excellent. The dessert was...More

If you are looking for a modern, refine, up class restaurant, you are in the wrong place. But if you want typical Spanish food, unpretentious but solid in taste and well executed, you are in the right place. We had "croquetas", which were delicious, and...More

We chose this restaurant based on reviews here, but were a little disappointed. We chose croquettes for our first course. There were two different kinds: ham, which were very good, and another kind (chicken?), which were only so-so. The chuletón de Ávila (steak) was massive...More

We saw the reviews for Los Candiles on Trip Advisor and thought we'd give it a try. We were not disappointed. We started with gambas al ajillo and queso manchego. Both were great. The chuleton de Ávila was really, really big, and the chuleton de...More
