My first meal ever in Spain was eaten at La Praillona in Boñar. We stopped there on the way from the airport in Madrid to Asturias. It was my first taste of culture shock. The food there is served family-style, so you have to agree upon something everyone will eat! I was also shocked that the bread that accompanies dinner is just thrown casually on the table. The meals served at this restaurant are quite good. I would venture to say this is the best restaurant in Boñar. I'm partial to the fabada-- a meal which they serve to cater to the vacationing Asturians.
Favorite Dish: Did I mention fabada? How bout the fabada? Don't forget the fabada!!!
A delicious Asturian stew of fabas (beans) with chorizo & morcilla.

: For a small town, Boñar actually has a pretty good nightlife. I remember there were 4 places that were restaurants by day, but wild clubs at night with kids dancing, drinking and having a good time. Our favorite one to hang out at was at the top of (the only) hill just as you enter Boñar proper. It was called "Las Canteronas" but unfortunately it's not there anymore... This place also had really good food during the day as a restaraunt. But there are plenty of other good places to hang out and dance & party at night. Since Bonar is so small you would have no trouble finding them!
Dress Code: Neat casual.

To get to Boñar you would arrive by car or FEVE train. To get around walking or bicycle is the preferred mode of transport.

Luggage and bags: Boñar has small european style shops where you can make purchases if you forget anything, but Boñar is a little isolated so there aren't any department stores or shopping malls nearby.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: The weather in Boñar during summer is warm and pleasant, sometimes hot. I got the impression from the locals that winters can be quite cold. If you are inclined to hiking, bring the appropriate shoes.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: There are emergency services available in Boñar if you should injur yourself. Just remember to bring the basic first aid stuff.
Photo Equipment: Well duh! Of course you take a camera when you travel.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: If you come in summer, bring sporting equipment such as soccer & basketballs, in winter the area surrounding Boñar is popular for skiing, so you would bring the appropriate equipment. I course, I had my bicycle and really enjoyed riding in the wide open spaces surrounding the village.

El Soto has several tennis courts, a soccer field, basketball & swimming pools. They are all free, except use of the pool has a nominal charge. In addition there is an open air snack bar that has snacks for the kiddies and alcohol for the adults. Its a quite nice place to hang out & picnic or whatever. There is also municipal camping too, the phone # is below.
