Casa Gaspar is an excellent place next to Ribadesella church where you can have a cider or a beer on the terrace accompanied by some of their tapas, of which there's a good variety and they're also good quality. The prices are not expensive considering it's a touristy area. They also have a 10 euro menu, which usually includes good meat stew, first plate, and a second plate.
The El Volante Restaurant has a menu for 12 euros. There's a variety of first and second plate options. Good quality food. Stew, rice with lobster, Iberian pork, warm squid salad, steak. And there are also delicious desserts of epic proportions! Mind you, next time, I'll ask for an a la carte wine because the wine on the menu doesn't match the quality of the food. The price doesn't include coffee.
If you like cider, you have to go to Campanu. You don't have to worry about not knowing anything about cider, because the waiters will help you with whatever you need. The food there is original and it's a good value. The restaurant's specialty is fresh seafood and grilled meats, but it also has enough variety, cheeses, and salads, too. If it had been crowded we'd know why!
On the N-634 highway from Ribadesella to Arriondas is where you'll find Triongo. Next to the church you'll see the sign for CARCEU 1 km. Follow the instructions, don't miss it. It's closed on Wednesdays, but I recommend that you call ahead for a reservation, otherwise you might not get a table. Eating well here is guaranteed, the service is friendly, very nice, better than at home, this place really is a must-see! If you like Pote or Fabada, or Cabrito or Pitu, don't doubt that the stuff here is the best in the area. The restaurant is closed Tuesday afternoons and Wednesdays.

We had dinner last night because it seemed like a nice place and we were wrong. We had a salad, ham croquettes (8.90 €) and Cabrales (8.90 €) and a burger. To eat frozen croquettes, I would prefer to in my house. The salad took 30 min and it wans´t even crowded. The burger left much to be desired. It is very exaggerated for the poor quality that they had.
A former restaurant, with a story from Ribadesella because it was one of the 1st. The kitchen was left in history. We were not cozy and ate bad for the money we paid. A place for young people who just want to get drunk.
The Restaurante Mesón El Labrador is a cozy restaurant with a typical, rual, Asturian-themed decor that serves traditional Asturian food that's very good. There are menus for an excellent value, and it also has an air-conditioned room, which I recommend.
On the lower floor of the hotel, the Covadonga Ciderhouse Restaurant is in pretty unconventional. Its bar is especially striking because it's a wooden boat. Besides tapas and large plate menus, the restaurant also prepares some really good fish, and some shellfish that are out of this world. Although there's an assortment of meats on the menu, don't miss out on trying the fish, because they're worth it.
The La Veguina Confectionary is one of the most well-known businesses that still stands in this town. They've been taking guests since 1937. The confectionery is almost right next to the church, in the center of the town and, for those of you who are hardcore chocolate fans, it's a real paradise. They have everything you can imagine here, from typical artisan chocolates, even things as interesting as sardine cans, pacifiers, toys, mobile phones, bowls of beans, garden products, even shoes, presented in their box like they're real! There's an endless, amazing variety that's very suitable for buying gifts or just pampering yourself. Besides chocolates, the store also has typical products such as casadiellas or letizias. In short, if you're going to be in Ribadesella, don't hesitate to stop by because it's a real treat for the senses and the palate.
I like it, if I come to Ribadesella, I always stop by this bakery, which is next to Ribadesella Beach. I tend to order the casadielles, which is an Asturian pie pastry and nutmeg, but I've also tried other treats there and they don't disappoint. Also, as a good Asturian confection, you can have your cake with a coffee or chocolate in the living room, or on the terrace in the summer. If you're lucky with the weather ;-)
