We went here on a busy Saturday lunch. The locals favourite time seems to be 2pm onwards, so if you go earlier it may be easier to get a table if you have not booked. We tried the menu of the day which was fantastic quality and value. Staff were pleasant and helpful and the bottle of house wine was... More

Very cosy and nice restaurant. Very helpful and friendly staff. The main plates can easily be share between two persons. Value for the money.

If you go you have to try the cachopo, typical asturian meal. The dishes are so complete, with an entrance and a main dish you get full. The desserts are delicious. The price is so cheap with that amount and quality of food.

Large portions of food - fish soup was quite watery and tasteless. Prawns served were no de-veined so you lost half the meet after fiddling with them. Rest of the food was very good (maybe too large) and the wine and staff service excellent.

This was hands down the best we had in Oviedo. Traditional Asturian restaurant with the best seafood. We tried the Bacalao (Cod) Vizcaina and the Cazuela de Merluza (Hake). They were both excellent - we absolutely loved the Cod. Highly recommend this place.

It's a great place to eat traditional meals from Asturias. It's delicious and the staff is really friendly. The dishes are the right size and the waiters tell you if you have ordered too much food.

Ok, the chicken was ok. But the rest was terrible. Unfriendly waiter, poor food, and the deserts were a real disaster. This is a very poor representation of the Spanish cuisine. I recommend not to go here.

Friendly staff, lots of good dishes in the menu, including staple traditional Asturian dishes and more modern ones. The sidra is served with an automatic escanciador, which makes it a quiet, agreeable place where you can actually have an effortless conversation.
