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.
Exceptional service in a place with real charm. We had 3 dishes to share, wine, dessert and coffee and we thought the price was very reasonable. The food is not plentiful .... but everything is organic and fresh. Chema knows his stuff. The only issue were the mosquitoes outside but for the second dish we moved to the dining room inside instead.
My wife and I spent two days there and ate very well. The service was very nice, the fabada, mussels and bread are delicious. I recommend is both for lunch and dinner, and I assure you that the portions are for champions.
In the centrally located Peñausende, the staff offers all kinds of traditional Asturian cuisine like snails, cachopo, and grilled or braised fish. It's also a wine bar and cellar with various references and all kinds of denomination of origin. They also have tapas to choose from, like croquettes or toast.
The Fartuquin is a typical restaurant where you go for dinner on Saturday before going on to meet friends etc. It is in an ideal location in Oviedo, close to the two busiest streets of the city: Calle Carpio and Calle Oscura. Opposite the restaurant are Campillín gardens and the entrance of the old town near Santo Domingo. The restaurant offers a full and varied menu of the day for a set price. It serves local specialties and the best Asturian cuisine such as Cantabrian fish stews, veal, different types of sausage, squid and typical desserts like rice pudding and cheesecake. The price of the daily menu is very good, the dinner menu is more expensive but the quality is good and it is worth it.
