We chose the tasting menu (€40) with matched wines (€27) and were really impressed with the quality of both. The wine choices were interesting and included 2 excellent whites as well as a local cider and a manzanilla. Everything was perfectly cooked and presentation excellent. In the U.K. you would have paid double the price for food this good. Also... More

We had dinner at the restaurant in August with previous reservation. The ambient was relaxed and quiet, and the staff gently. We took the large menu, and it was a good option, as we could taste most of their dishes. The only problem is that it was difficult to go back to our car because of how full was our... More

Crazily extreme gourmet cooking, so extreme and bizarre that it was not enjoyable. Very expensive food with a lot of fuss and drama. Nothing tasted very good. Fine if this is what you like. But not for us. We booked a table for 8 on the telephone, when we got there we found the restaurant did not start until 8.30... More

On a very wet night, when the UK was enjoying its hottest September day for 90 years, we went and had dinner. The restaurant is in an old building and has around 20 covers, and did I forget to say a Michelin star, so I am expecting great things and a large bill. The food used to the fruits of... More

Amazing to find a Michelin star restaurant in a fashionable Asturias seaside town providing superb 8 course taster menus for only 40€. Every aspect was superb and I can not recommend it more highly.

Having read the reviews we called by and booked a table for the following evening. Explaining that we did not want any shell fish the Manager said that they would adapt their Santa Marina tasting menu for us. We were there on a fairly quiet night but the service was excellent and all spoke good English. The food was beautiful... More

This is truly a must if you are visiting or staying in Ribadesella. We had an amazing meal with first class service. It was a 5* experience for the fraction of the cost of a similar restaurant in London.

On our way back from Lagos de Covadonga, and a bit tired of all those big cachopos and fabadas around, we decided to give this place -in a completely different league- a try, looking for something much more sophisticated but still at an affordable price. It was good to discover on the way there it also had a Michelin star... More

We are always a bit late on vacation. We spend most of our life running frenetically from one commitment to the next. So, when we go on holidays, we forget about our watch. Arbidel fit perfectly. We showed up late, maybe 4:00. They served us an amazing , late lunch.

A lovely restaurant tucked away in a corner. The staff were very welcoming and helpful and the food and wine were delicious. Couldn't fault the service or the atmosphere. One of the highlights of our holiday.
