In Logroño, right in the historic center, lies one of the most famous restaurants in the city. Run in an excellent way, the place strikes you as soon as you enter and see the bar counter built in the lower floor.

Oh Tio Agus…even though the Logroñians can be a bit fickle when recommending a bar in specific (“it just that…I mean….they’re all good!”, they've rightly said to me on more than one occasion), I saw a lot of positive reviews online
That’s how the locals call the famous Laurel St. Since it’s where Logroñians go for tapas, after a couple of glass of wine it’s joked that they might walk a bit wobbly like a baby elephant!
And at #1 is Taberna del Tio Blas, where
This is an itty-bitty bar (I’d even venture to call it a dive) but what it does have is a little window to the street where you can try the specialty: famous mushroom tapas
The price is even better: wine and tapa for only 1.70€. If

The quality is very high;
It is an interesting proposal, specializing in “tzangurritos”. A tzangurrito is a spider crab in Basque, and a “txangurro a la donostiarra” is a way of preparing it: adding to the crab meat a mixture of vegetables, later it is put in
It is one of the new additions to Laurel Street (it turned one year in February 2012) but more and more people enjoy its plates: the house specialty is the sirloin, but what is remarkable are the “evolved Spanish omelets”. What? They
I also found this restaurant jumping from recommendation to recommendation while surfing the net: its Spanish ham and cheese sandwich is served hot, the ham is crispy and the cheese melted (don’t you get hungry just by reading this?)
Do you remember the prawn and pineapple cocktail? The one they used to serve in weddings and other celebrations? “Old food” as my favorite food critic, Mikel Iturriaga, would say but that, “if it’s well done, it wasn’t so bad”. It is
I loved the dinner I had at this restaurant located right in the heart of Logroño, on Portales street.
Their secret? Food cooked on the grill, both fish and meat. I asked for a turbot, which was huge (and delicious) and perfect to
This cafe has space for about 45 people in the centre of Logroño, next to the City Hall. There's a wide variety of tapas, mini sandwiches, and tortillas, and in the mornings, a Mediterranean breakfast of toast, with olive oil and
I will not discover anything new in Laurel Street, but I have to admit that this bar that specializes in mushrooms is one of the best. How is it possible for a simple mushroom to be so tasty together with just a piece of bread? I

This traditional bakery and cake shop is in the center of Logroño. I suggest that you sample the specialties of the house, especially those related to chocolate. It is like entering a chocolate museum! It also has a café and a terrace.
