The Spanish region of Asturias is known for its excellent cider – which is slightly tart, cloudy and not sparkling. You’ll find cider bars, or sidrerías, all over the region, but the capital of Oviedo definitely deserves a mention. Here are some of our favourite cider bars in Oviedo.

El Fartuquín

Bar, Restaurant, Spanish

Located right in the historic heart of Oviedo, El Fartuquín is a historic restaurant itself, filled with old wooden beams, wrought-iron chandeliers and bare stone walls. Of course, you’ll find lots of cider on tap here, but also an array of starters, salads, meat and fish dishes. Order the grilled prawns, octopus cooked with onions or sirloin fillet cooked in cider. They also offer a wide selection of desserts – so make sure to save room. There’s everything from cheesecake and almond cake to Cava lemon sorbet or apple cider sorbet and a selection of Asturian cheeses.

Another traditional Asturian sidrería, Tierra Astur has a few branches dotted all over the region. Inside, it is rustic and cosy, filled with lots of dark wood, wooden benches and green glass bottles hanging from the ceiling. As well as the traditional cider, they specialise in grilled meats, as well fabada Asturiana, and cured meat and fish boards (mar y montaña).

Sidrería La Pumarada

Bar, Restaurant, Spanish

Sidrería La Pumarada is located in the centre of Oviedo, not far from the Cathedral. It’s a buzzy area, lined with many different bars and restaurants. It’s a popular spot, which is always busy in the evenings and on weekends. The cider here is served in the traditional way, where it is poured from a great height to aerate it with bubbles. Pair your glass of cider with sharing plates of grilled wild mushrooms, clams, local hams and cheeses, and homemade croquettes. There are also larger dishes of paellas or hearty stews if you’re feeling more hungry.

Sidrería El Gato Negro

Bar, Spanish

El Gato Negro is a lovely cider bar located on Trascorrales Square in Old Town Oviedo. Inside, it has stone walls and chunky wooden beams, and gives you the feeling of somewhere time-honoured and traditional. There are also large photos of old cider barrels and pictures of how the cider is made. If you want a spot of fresh air, there are tables outside on the street, too. Besides the cider, there is an extensive wine list, as well as lots of seafood and meat dishes, cheese platters and desserts. Try the Gato Negro cod fish – the speciality of the house – and a plate of the local Cabrales blue cheese.

Sidrería La Ferrería

Sidrería La Ferrería is a bright and relaxed cider bar and restaurant with bright yellow walls and dark wooden furniture. As well as the local bottles of cider, the menu features lots of traditional dishes from the region of Asturias and great value four-course menus for €9.90 and another for €16. Here you’ll find lots of Asturian classics. Go for the fabada Asturiana – a hearty bean stew with hunks of meat and chorizo, hake fish cooked in cider and pork shoulder.

Sidrería La Noceda

Bar, Spanish

Sidrería La Noceda is a big traditional cider bar and seafood restaurant. It has bare stone and whitewashed walls with timber, and is decorated with odd knickknacks from boar heads and photos to old farming equipment. One room of the restaurant even has colourful stained glass windows. It’s huge, but also atmospheric and cosy at the same time. Besides the traditional Asturian cider, it specialises in seafood. Think big platters of mussels, clams, scallops and goose barnacles. Larger dishes include seafood paellas, grilled plaice or Galician-style octopus with potatoes.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
