Las Delicias is the place to go if you want to eat the freshest seafood of the day or the typical fabada. The prices are a bit more expensive but you'll eat to your heart's desire and in a very typical atmosphere.
Favorite Dish: Order your fresh fish of the day to taste, and by all means do order the ham they bring from Leon as a starter, which litterally melts in your mouth!!!!! Other main dish specialties include almejas con alcachofas (clams with artichokes), cachopo de merluza o de ternera (fried fish or beef with serrano ham and cheese or esparragus inside.)
Of course, needless to repeat that the cider is fresh and delicious!
For dessert, the house specialites include mil hojas and arroz con leche. That is if you still have any space left ;-)
La Marina is the kind of small bar restaurant you won't find in any Luanco guide (and thank god!) yet it is your best bet to try the local dishes at the best price. Hidden in a small pedestrian street, it is the perfect spot to sit on the summer terrace, enjoy the chilly Asturian evening and order several raciones of tapas to taste a bit of everything... you won't regret it!
I recommend the terrace in the summer, which fills the entire street and is always packed so make sure you make a reservation!
Favorite Dish: Don't miss the patatas con cabrales (potatoes with typical cabrales cheese), rollito de bonito (tuna roll), and of course the unmissable sidra (cider)!!!!

The bar El Muelle, Pier in English, is a charming spot in the peer as you correctly guessed. It's the perfect place to go to after drinking all those glasses of sidra (cider) as you can sit outside, breath some fresh ocean air, and put something in your stomach to absorb all the cider in your stomach!
One of the tapas you should not miss is the house cheese. Don't ask me how it's called I don't remember. Yes you can blame it on the cider. However I do remember its delicious taste, a bit milder than the cabrales, and bits of the story the waiter told us: apparently this very successful young man who worked in some big company left everything, settled in a village nearby and makes this incredible cheese all by himself. So only small quantities of it are available and only in certain bars and restaurant the guy chooses. You cannot buy it in a store. Taste it and don't hesitate to add details and corrections to the story when you come back. That is if you remember more than me ;-)
Dress Code: None
In the North of Spain, young people go "sidreria hopping". A sidreria is a place where they make and serve cider, a local speciatly. You drink a small quantity of cider in one gulp (so it doesn't get warm)every once in a while. Don't be fooled: it is very strong and you might get drunk very fast!
Dress Code: Casual
If you have been to Spain or even just read about it, you must have heard of or already tasted a Spanish omelette: tortilla espanola, made of eggs, potatoes, onions and olive oil.
If you happen to be in Luanco during the Summer months, I recommend not to miss the tortilla made by the chiringuito (beach bar) at the west end of the beach near the rampla.
Of course, tortilla tastes vary, as some like it drier others juicier... this one is just in-between and seems to please every tortilla lover!
You get 1 pincho (1 piece) for 1 euro, or you can also order a whole tortilla if you are a a very hungry group ;-)
