Restaurants we recommend
Asturias is often regarded as having some of the best food in Spain. Here we have compiled a list of our very favourite restaurants, starting with the best of the best, restaurants honoured with Michelin stars. The list also includes our favourite, most local dining options.
For those who are not so familiar with the Spanish culture:
Tip 1: Lunch is the main meal of the day in Spain and it is usually served between 13:30 and 15:30. Restaurants are open for dinner between 21:00 and 23:00. You will find that many restaurants don´t open on Mondays, especially for dinner.
Tip 2: As lunch is the main meal of the day and, as we are in a rural area, it may be challenging to find a restaurant open for dinner outside the month of August, especially during the week.
Our favourite restaurants
In a small hamlet 10 mins away from Arriondas. Boasting 2 Michelin stars, Casa Marcial is a proper culinary treat. They offer only two different tasting menus (115€ and 165€) and a limited "a la carte" menu. We enjoyed taking the wine pairing option and thought that the taste sensations were out of this world. It is normally closed In January and February. Transfer service (El gran sueño - Casa Marcial - El gran sueño) for 60€.
