Restaurants we recommend

Before diving into our recommendations, here are some essential tips for those less familiar with Spanish dining etiquette:

  1. Lunchtime in Spain: The main meal of the day is lunch, typically served between 13:30 and 15:30. It's best not to arrive at a restaurant before 13:30. For our British guests, remember that Spain is one hour ahead of the UK, so a 13:30 lunch is equivalent to 12:30 back home.
  2. Dinner Habits: In Spain, dinner is often a lighter affair, perhaps a salad, omelette, jamón, cheese, or even just fruit and yogurt. Consequently, dinner is served late, usually between 21:00 and 23:00. Outside the summer months, finding a restaurant open for dinner from Sunday to Thursday can be a challenge, especially in Asturias where restaurants rarely open for dinner before 21:00. For those from the UK, this means dinner starts at your 20:00.
  3. Sharing is Caring: Spaniards love to share their food, especially in traditional bars and sidrerías, where portions are large and known as 'raciones' (similar to large tapas). We recommend ordering one ración per two people as a starter and another as a main. Waiters often advise if you're ordering too much, but it's always good to be mindful of portion sizes.
  4. Dining Etiquette: When sharing dishes, avoid piling food on your plate. Take what you'll eat in small amounts – for instance, if you're enjoying croquetas, take one at a time instead of claiming your share all at once.
  5. Embrace the Culture: To fully enjoy your experience, we suggest adapting to the local customs and dining times. You're on holiday, after all! Remember, 9:00 AM is 8:00 AM back in the UK, 13:30 PM is 12:30 PM, and 21:00 is 20:00.

Please note that the opening times we provide on our website are guidelines and subject to change. If you have a specific restaurant in mind for a particular day, let us know! We'll gladly check their current opening times and make reservations on your behalf.
