This is a small restaurant. Very well decorated and cozy. Need to reserve because it's always crowded. The food is good and the wine list is interesting. Spanish dishes with a grandmother's taste.

I´ve been with my wife to Oviedo and selected this restaurant where we arrived without booking in advance. They were full but very nice and arranged a table for us some time later. We had a wonderful dinner, spanish food.

This charming restaurant is in a pretty little Oviedo square. Friendly service and delicious food, especially the fish and seafood. Well worth a visit - local and not at all touristy.

This elegant restaurant is located in the Plaza de Trascorrales which we reached by walking through the old town, a pedestrian district much prettier and more authentic than the touristic zone to which our hotel concierge had directed us, with locals of all ages sitting...More
