The Bodega Vidas winemakers recommend a celebrated restaurant in their local town, a favourite place to eat in Oviedo, and a 100-year-old food shop famous for its bread


El Blanco

Calle Mayor, 11, 33800 Cangas del Narcea, Asturias, Spain;
“This is the famous local place in Cangas, famous around Asturias. They mix traditional ingredients with innovation – more elaborate cuisine using local products. You have chops, very high quality. The cook is amazing. Here and at Del Rio [below], they farm their own cows.” – Bea and Pepe

Casa del Río

Calle Mayor, 38, 33800 Cangas del Narcea, Asturias, Spain;
“This is another very nice restaurant in Cangas.” – Bea and Pepe

Casa Fermín

Calle San Francisco, 8, 33003 Oviedo, Asturias, Spain;
“This is one of our favourite restaurants in Oviedo, it’s very good. They do a large tasting menu – 15 dishes and you get completely full. It’s traditional with a hint of modern thinking. Local produce too. We like it because the whole menu is adapted for coeliacs.” – Bea and Pepe

Mesón Restaurante El Casino

El Toral, Nº 2, 33880 Pola de Allande, Asturias, Spain
“This is the local café in my home town, we go here quite a lot. That’s where the best meat in Asturias is.” – Bea

“This is a 100-year-old food shop in Cangas where you can pick up local produce – chosco, all the wines of the region, all the cheeses… And bread. This area is famous for bread as well.
