Four of us, all hungry, so we tried lots of dishes. Excellent meal! Selection of grilled seafood to share with the tastiest lobster, clams, cigalas and nécoras one can have. As mains, hake a la plancha, seabream and red mullets. The white local Albariño wine and a very very reasonable bill! Good service. Could dine at El Faro every evening.... More

We ate here on a Saturday evening when Cudillero was bursting at the seams with people eating in restaurants and in the streets. El Faro is set behind the main square so you have to walk up a narrow little street to get to it. We hadn't booked so we were very lucky to get a table outside ( the... More

When you're faced with a wide choice of cafes and restaurants in a busy popular spot like Cudillero, it's always difficult to know how best to select a venue, let alone secure a table at the best. We landed on El Faro through a combination of chance and with help from Trip Advisor. Although extremely busy, the owners operate a... More

Recommended by my excellent hotel, (Casona de la Paca), this restaurant was in a quiet setting a small way back from the main square. The ambience and service was pleasant, they spoke English. They had a menu but these seemed semi-defunct as they brought a large card with pictures of fish and seafood and told you of the catches of... More

One street back from the main square and a much nicer place than those on the square. Also better service and much better value. Nice setting and our waiter made sure we had an enjoyable experience. The Sea Bass was very good.

Quietly situated in a street set back from the main square and harbour. Our group of four had a mixed experience dining here: whilst two people were satisfied with their fare one other found the food to be undercooked, and the considered it to be bland, flavoured and most disappointing. As a group we considered the overall meal to be... More

We had lunch here after arriving in Cudillero and after a wander around the town. It's tucked away from the main centre so is quiet. Service was very friendly, and good. Not much English is spoken and they were not doing a menu del dia which was perfect for us. There was a good selection of local wines at affordable... More

We were two and ordered sea bream , which was awful as in not fresh at all. The prices are far too high and the food lacks quality

Not one had a good meal the cod was more than overdone. Really in a fishing harbor you don't expect fish that comes from the freezer... All a Cudillero is 'Has Been', just stay away...

My partner and I stayed at the Camping site in Cudillero where the owners suggested we eat at this restaurant... It was excellent the food was so fresh we had the queso de cabra (goat cheese) with avellenas (hazelnuts) and langostinos (large prawns) in a balsamic and oil dressing which we shared it was divine... We then shared the Sargo... More
