“Best restaurant in Potes”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

This place doesn't look promising - you go up some stairs past a DVD rental store before you are in a bar, then up another flight to a beautiful attic room with plenty of windows in the roof ... But by this point it's clear you are somewhere special. The food and service are excellent and we went a couple of times. The children enjoyed the roast chicken and hand cut chips - hot, crispy, perfectly seasoned. Both the chargrilled meat (we had a large plate of young lamb chops) and fish were very well done too - good choice of steaks and local dishes. Good wine list, plus local ciders and the house red is high quality. This a proper restaurant without being formal or stuffy and several notches above some of the tourist traps in the town.

“Hidden gem”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

Recommended at a retail store. Excellent food, great service. Our waiter was extremely helpful...recommended other areas to go near Potes. Exquisite leg of lamb. 40-44 Euros per person with bottle of wine, probably bet meal we had in Spain.

“Excellent Restaurant in Potes”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

We had a great experience here. The main dining room is so charming, with sloped ceilings and nice beams. The service was very good. My husband and I shared a starter - the artichokes with jamon and it was delicious. For our main courses my husband had lamb chops which he enjoyed, and I had the half chicken which was really tasty. For dessert we shared the lemon mousse which we loved. I enjoyed a glass of the house red wine which was an excellent value at one euro for the glass. All in all, large, generous portions, very nice food, good value and friendly service.

“Great food - brilliant steak!”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

We were staying in Casa Cayo but they had a family event and the restaurant was closed - so the very kind host suggested we try Asador Llorente - and we were so pleased he did!

I had a wonderful dish of massive prawns, my friend was in raptures over her chicken main course and my husband said the steak was the best he had ever had (and he's over the age of 50 and eaten quite a bit of steak in his time - so this is no hollow compliment!)

If you're in Potes, give it a whirl - you'll find it on the first floor - go up the steps to the first floor, into the bar then turn right and up more steps to the restaurant - from our experience you won't regret it!
