Many places like The Campanu, The guide cider house, El Puerto, La Portiella or El Prau de Tereñes (of which we will speak shortly) have managed to keep the essence of Riosellana food as a treasure and, at the same time, enhance its own and meritorious cuisine with the best cider in the region.
The cider houses proliferate throughout the council, although mainly in the capital. The prestige of these meeting points can be seen in the extraordinary environment that you live inside. With the arrival of good weather, the charisma of these places is even more palpable, because the terraces are an extension of more atmosphere, more cider, talks, and good dishes.
The route in the urban area
In the port riosellano is located the Seafood Restaurant El Campanu, its owner is passionate about indigenous gastronomy; at their premises offers fresh fish and seafood of the highest quality, captured mainly in Ribadesella and other Asturian ports. Sea bass, clams, pixin, hake, xárago ... all washed down with a good cider.
Also at the estuary of the estuary we find the Sidrería El Puerto, a traditional local of the town whose specialty is seafood and fish from the local fish market, with its seal of quality, also offering a wide assortment of typical Ribadesella tapas and rice dishes.
A few steps from the Port, in front of the bridge that crosses the estuary, we find the cider house The Guide, a cozy and traditional place that offers excellent tapas and meat and fish at your point. Currently it is one of the most frequented restaurants in Ribadesella, in its outdoor patio you can enjoy the best Asturian cider.
The route in the surroundings
in the beautiful village of Terenes, we found two other restaurants:
· One with extraordinary views of the pedrals and the Cantabrian Sea, in the Sidrería La Portiella You can enjoy an environment like no other. In the sun, in the garden, a few bottles of good cider are poured, accompanying some delicious tapas of parishes, octopus or pantrucu, plate of origin riosellano, cousin of traditional black pudding. Their baked fish, from the sea to the table in no time, with a unique flavor. The visit is highly recommended, for the views and the good food.
· Also in The Prau de Tereñes you enjoy good cider, in the sun on your terrace or in your indoor dining rooms. They serve a variety of grilled meats, which are not abundant in the area, and a rich Cantabrian fish, topped off with delicious homemade desserts.
