Stop by this plaza and have yourself some sidra (it's a must order and a specialty of the north). People in Oviedo love dressing up and leisurely hanging out here. It's fantastic for people watching, grabbing some tapas and getting into deep conversation.

Nice plaza but not super. The fountain here is very very old. There is also a market and many places to eat. The great markethall is also very near. A busy place with always a lot of people.

We were looking for a place to eat and found Restaurante El Fontán (see my review there). And walking away from it, we stumbled onto this. The square was bustling with people and it was almost 5pm! It looked as though all the restaurants there were full. Why didn't we find this square before? I'm sure we'd had a more... More

Small but very pretty square. Completely full at lunch hours since there are several restaurants there. Great atmosphere.

Nice place to wander and have a local Sidra and a bite to eat. The local sideras serve the cider pouring from a great height.

I loved spending a couple of hours in this sunny plaza enjoying a menu del dia whilst watching the sidra waiters pour glasses from a great height. Even funnier watching tourists trying to recreate the motion!

This is a typical central plaza for cities of this size. That means a good place to eat, drink and watch people. Other than that it is hard to see why others rated this as Excellent. We found it Average and that is good.

Good for those who want to drink sidra. Not so good for the others. The way the cider/sidra is served, by placing the boottle over the head of the waiter and leting the liquid fall doen to a glass that is placed at the height of the knees makes some splitting that is unpleasant to who is in the neighborhood,...

There's no better place in town to have lunch and cider on a sunny day, where it's buzzing with people, both tourists and locals. Good and wide selection of food, beautiful views and a reasonable price.

There are several places to eat here. Les Forages is a good one. Cider and chipirones a must have> This is the heart of old Oviedo and the market area
