This elegant restaurant is located in the Plaza de Trascorrales which we reached by walking through the old town, a pedestrian district much prettier and more authentic than the touristic zone to which our hotel concierge had directed us, with locals of all ages sitting at tables on patios outside bars and restaurants eating tapas, sipping wine, beer and cider,...

After two weeks travelling northern spain, we were truly delighted by the cuisine of this tiny restaurant. Fresh and excellent i gredients appeared to be the basis of the dishes we had: We specially limed the anchovies with tomato salad, the calamares en su tinta, the fabe with mussels and the juicy tortilla with gambas. Very kindhearted staff!

If you are in Oviedo and fancy a nice dinner, please visit El Fondín at Pza Trascorrales. It houses only a few tables so make sure to either book a table or be early - you do not want to miss out this. We had the ravioli with foie, it was magnificent. Dessert was deep fried milk (never had before)... More
