Angel the owner is lovely ... attentive and friendly. Sometimes he even puts himself in the client's shoes to remember how he likes to be treated. He offers gluten-free summer days and a menu for celiacs. Great food. It's very cozy and great ... the tables have electrical cider pourers are great fun ... and a fireplace I would definitely recommend.
This place is a classic, everybody in Oviedo knows the Paloma, a popular meeting place after work. It's famous for its Vermouth Sundays and its wonderful coated prawns. And what about the staff! There provide excellent service, all the time.
It's a restaurant where you seem to go for a rum because it looks good and yet it has 2 menus, one of 11€ with plenty of dishes to choose from and one of 18€ which is finger licking good. The fresh fish is great and well presented too. A good deal.

Gepetto is definitely a good place to eat pizza in Gijon. I've been coming to this restaurant for years, and although the quality has lowered at times, it's generally remained more or less the same. The locals are very nice, and the service is great, although recently they've introduced a rather stupid reservation policy in the restaurant on Calle San Bernardo (at least that's the branch where we experienced it). But nevertheless, it's a restaurant worth eating at.
On my last visit to the city of Gijón we approach La Competition to see if their pizzas were just as good or similar to those that we love in Leon, and I can not complain because they were scrumptious. The pizzeria is in the middle Fomento with bars all over, its greatest environment is at night. We were 4 people and ordered 3 pizzas: the house, Roman and full moon, and 2 salads: mixed and seafood, along with coffee and a cheese mousse dessert that we loved, all for € 32.00, which I found wonderfully priced. One thing I did not know is that the kitchen has no closing time so you can go eat at 5 in the afternoon as we did.
I've only gone once (by recommendation) and I was impressed with the dinner. The seafood is of the highest quality and is very well prepared. The price is a little expensive, but it is what it is - if you want quality you have to pay. And very wrong of him not to invite us for shots after.
One of the most typical, traditional and emblematic places in Gijón to go out for a few ciders and a taps is called "Cuesta del Cholo". It's in a typical sailor/fishermen area, at the end of the marina, and is so named because it is a sloping street that climbs to the Cerro de Santa Catalina. The street is full of cider bars (called "chigres") and small bars where it's typical to have a few "culines" and weather permitting, have a gathering outside with cider and sunflower seeds. Some of the bars have a restaurant, but that mainly serve snacks, the most popular being grilled sardines. It is a very typical and there's lots of atmosphere, especially late in the afternoon.
The Roman Bridge Inn is situated on the Roman Bridge in Cangas de Onis, on the banks of the River Sella. It offers traditional Asturian cuisine, among its most famous are the bean stew, the "cabritu the inn" and rice pudding. It has an extensive menu of wine and spirits, as well as portions among which Asturian cheeses. It offers a daily menu and a special menu of the house, consisting of Asturian bean stew, beans with clams, rice pudding, custard and homemade cakes. At the store, you can buy local products and handmade items from the region. There is also a large terrace and parking.
The Restaurante Casa Ramon is one of the most emblematic restaurants in Oviedo. Located in the Plaza del Fontan, it gets pretty crowded on market days due to its reputation and its delicious tapas dishes. They say that the character of its owner Ramon is a bit unpredictable, depending on the day! When you visit, you should order the seafood broth (if it is summer / spring) and a pincho. It won't disappoint!
During Holy Week we were in Gijón and Avilés, we were recommended the old "The Inn" but we asked a girl in the street and she told us that the best place to eat was the "Casa Lin" and she was right. The dishes are authentic and XXL size is not an exaggeration. We ordered beans with clams and there was enough for 3 servings! As were the beans! We ordered a squid in ink which was also XXL and had an amazing flavor. The treatment was more than pleasant, it is one of those places that you recommend to everyone because you ate so well and it leaves you with a good taste. They pour a good cider ... but if you want to eat there is also a bar to have a drink and a little skewer. It is attached to the train tracks behind Plaza Carballo.
A great place for tapas in Navia, we went for a dinner of tapas and it was very good, the portions were generous, warm cumin salad and very fresh squid. To top if off a huge piece of ice cream cake for two, with drinks and coffees all for 27 euros. It also has a menu and wifi, the attention is very good and it serves good Trabanco cider. Recommended.
The smell of smoke and the sound of the Horreos River surrounded the charming village. The streets are like puzzles, you find new things with every step. The main street, in the heart of the village, we found a heavenly breadbox. It was small, but cozy dining on Asturian food. The excellent menu had really delicious Asturian stew, one that was really, really good, and it continued with the second plate, the compango cod with homemade potatoes. Plus we had coffee, frisuelos dessert, and wine for the excellent weekday price of 10 euros.
Yesterday, December 8, we celebrated our silver wedding anniversary with family at the Restaurant La Barge of Oviedo. Today (the day after) we are just remembering how good it was and trying to find some fault with something but we aren't able to! It was just perfect. The staff looked after us very well during the five hours that we were there and we paid a very reasonable price for everything we ate and drank, which was not a small amount. We didn't have to wait for anything, didn't need to ask for anything - the service was exceptional. I would like to sincerely thank all of the staff who contributed towards the wonderful memories that we will have of the day. Thank you.
It's a lovely place with home cooking. Good ingredients and well cooked. The service is excellent, quick and lively. I'd recommend it for people looking for a nice, typical Asturian meal. It's also very good value for money. Midday menus are available very cheap / 10 €. Excellent quality
It's next to my son's daycare, so I have eaten there several times while I waited for him. It's highly recommended. The prices are affordable and there are very nice deals. I can never remember the names of Mexican food, but I always ask for the dish in the photo of the first post. Delicious.
We arrived at Casa Gerardo with very high expectations. This restaurant has a great reputation and we were going to try a special menu so the bar was raised to the maximum level ... well, we can say that we weren't disappointed with Casa Gerardo! We could offer a thousand compliments, but let's settle for just three words: "explosion of flavor". Each bite explodes in the mouth, and your tastebuds are in for a real treat. Don't miss Casa Gerardo if you want to try some amazing food!
The Casa Trabanco is one of many homemade cider houses that abound in Gijón. It's kind of far from the village, but it offers a relaxed and friendly environment with two spaces: a very cheerful and lively restaurant-bar at the top (which also has a terrace), and a winery below, perfect for group dinners, dinner with friends or business lunches. You can go on a small tour of the facilities where they make cider (which we did). It's really interesting to see the process of apple fermentation and to watch the huge barrels where cider has been made each year. It's an ideal location to enjoy the best of Asturian gastronomy, with good quality, good price and great service. The best dishes were the steak tartare, the delicious Cod in cider, delicious Cod Tacos, Cabrales croquettes and delicious chorizo.
