Jaime Uz is native to Ribadesella and he exprses his love to the region through his creative cuisine. You can see, smell, touch, taste and hear his passion which he transmits so well. Bread is robust, crunchy and and art in itself. The grain bread is delicious and the wheat bread that smells like honey, unforgettable. The entrees exquisite. Sense... More

Saw this was the number one restaurant in Ribadesella so decided to try it out. Excellent food, excellent service....excellent price. They even bought out a dessert with a candle in it when they knew it was my husbands birthday! Loved it!

We had a wonderful dinner at Arbidel. Everything was first-rate and the shocker was that it came at a cost that is about equal with an average restaurant where we live back in the US. We thought the people who worked there were very nice and friendly. If you want to do the tasting menu, it has to be ordered... More

Reservation essential for this very good restaurant And a visit is a must. Service impeccable as is the interesting and very good menu. You can always tell a very good establishment by the short menu and this, whilst short, is still difficult to mame a choice as all is delicious

The food is good rather than excellent. The chef's wife runs front of house and is somewhat stressy, rushing around with seemingly no time to engage with the diners, or even smile. Our waiter spoke some English (which was welcome), but he had a strange manner. For example, when we left some of our main course - the portion sizes... More

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner at Arbidel. It is difficult to believe that you can find such well-deserved Michelin starred food and service at these prices! On the food front, I had the delicious Santa Marina Tasting menu and it was faultless. The sardine 'sandwich' was amazing and worth going back for on its own! They were... More

Extremely fortunate to read about this restaurant on trip advisor. Our waiter Luis spoke excellent English and he made sure we understood all the wonderful food we ate. We had the 40 euro menu with matching wine for 18 euro. Given the quality it is amazing value. Well worth it.

What a nice little place. We stumbled upon it more or less by accident - came for a cave tour, ended up with two hours to spare, lunch time, looked up places to eat in TripAdvisor, here we are. Fairly expensive by Spanish standards; silly cheap considering the quality. You'd easily leave more in tips for comparable food somewhere in... More

First visit, great results. A ver immpressive special menu for less than 40 euros (+wine) is much more than you can expect at any One-starred Michelin place in the world. Great flavours and a solid cook with a nice and well-priced wine list. This tiny restaurant at the heart of the old coastal village of Ribadesella in asturias (Spain) offers... More
