Restaurants and Bars

Tierra Astur Restaurant

The first time we sat down at Tierra Astur, a sidrería at the very top of the “Boulevard of Cider”, it was just for drinks. But it was dinnertime and we watched with growing despondency as plate after plate of mouthwatering Asturian food was delivered to other tables. By the time we left, my stomach was growling like an angry Rottweiler. “Calm yourself, friend”, I whispered soothingly, “Soon we shall return and a succulent feast shall be your reward!”


Restaurante La Más Barata

On Calle Cimadeville, just past the open arch of the Ayuntamiento building, La Más Barata is one of Oviedo’s most famous and popular restaurants.


Pizzería La Competencia on the Ruta del Vino

Here’s a tip for young entrepreneurs. Want to make sure your new bar is massively popular? Offer free slices of pizza with every drink. And make the drinks crazy-cheap.


Mesón Casa Pedro and the Infamous Cachopo

After sitting down at the popular Mesón Casa Pedro on Calle Asturias, we did like everyone else and ordered the cachopo. A delicious breaded, fried “sandwich” of ham and cheese, cachopo is similar to Cordon Bleu. Just a lot bigger.


El Yantar de Campomanes

On a recommendation, we decided to try out the menú del día at El Yantar de Campomanes, a rustic restaurant serving up traditional Asturian fare on the southern side of the city center.


Restaurante Punto y Coma

On the recommendation of one of our new Asturian Twitter friends, we chose Punto y Coma for our first big lunch in Oviedo. When we arrived at 14:30, the place was already packed and we were lucky to get a table.
