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.

The centre of the old city of Oviedo, but not too touristy at all. It seems to be very popular with the locals too. Great place to sit and watch the world go by. Also, to watch the waiters skilfully pouring the cider into people's glasses, or trying it out yourself, if you're brave enough! Pretty buildings, pretty flowers and... More

This little market square is probably the closest thing untouristy Oviedo has in the way of a "tourist trap" but this is one place in the city that brings everyone together. The plaza is family-oriented-no rowdies allowed; the only yelling comes from the 20 or 30 kids running about the place. Spend 2-3 hours relaxing before dinner or after lunch.
