If you imagine the perfect Fishermen's cooperative restaurant this would be it. Great authentic local recipes made with great fish. Order the special.

You need to reserve with time in summer and vacation. The little village is nice. They have two turns for lunch, 13.30, 15.30. The seafood rice is so tasty and plentyful. Nice wine list and desserts.

You have to make a reservation well ahead to eat in this restaurant since it is famous for his arroz caldoso, which it is not one of my favourites but it is edible. Prefer “las zamburiñas a la plancha”. This is a place allways crowded....But it is good if you like seafood.More

You would never imagine the delicious food of this restaurant just by looking from the outside. There is a dish that is amazing, full of seashells and rice. It is incredible. So incredible that you actually need to book a table 3 weeks advance. The...waiters are immensely friendly and welcoming. I would highly recommend this restaurant!!More

Amazing little restaurant in this tiny fishing village. We didn't know what to expect but seafood heaven was upon us. We had pulpo (obviously) and percebes to start. Fresh and delicious. Accompanied by a beautiful local white wine. Followed by of course, the Arroz special...(lobster rice) that this restaurant seems to be famous for. It blew us away, perfectly spiced sauce with sweet lobster and plenty of meat for the price. Lobsters and crabs in a tank at the end of the restaurant, a proper traditional fishing village restaurant that focuses on quality much more than the usual tourist traps!! Amazing thank youMore

You would not suspect there is such a good restaurant in this small village. We ate the rice with lobster. It was very very good! The waiter was customer friendly and making small jokes with us. It made us feel welcome. If you are in...this region go and have this special dish in this superb restaurant.More

Wow - a real seafood eating experience. Mussels, razor clams, bacalao Gallego and delicious lobster and rice. Needs booking and was busy upstairs, but the waiting staff were excellent. Loses a star for just how rare the one diner with a fish allergy’s steak was.

You know how sometimes you go visit family and they tell you what you're going to have? Well, they don't go that far, but they do ask you to decide if you want rice when you make your reservation...so even though it was our first...time there we never got to see a menu! We had the soupy rice with lobster, which was delicious - we took the waiter's recommendation for the wine and it was a great one - overall the price was very reasonable and the quantity was abundant...More

We were taken there by our Spanish friend, who has a house a few kilometres away, on a rainy wet day and it was like stepping into a warm, welcoming Galician home. The service was so friendly and the food delicious. We had the rice...and sea food to share and it was the best. We were told that in the Suymmer there are queues to get in and I can quite believe it. Definitely need to book in advance.More

I happily stumbled across this restaurant by accident, after losing a list of ‘must do’ destinations that had been written for me by two recently off duty tour guides, drinking rapidly, I had met in a bar in Cudillero. They hadn’t agreed on everything but...they did agree on this restaurant - and it was at the top of their lists. So I rocked up and after initially being told by a section waiter that they were booked solid (typical timing for me - midday Sunday), the manager swept in and found me a bar stool type table which actually had the best sea view in the house. My next waiter was very friendly and after hearing my order, politely recommended I should instead order the lobster and rice dish. I had never seen such a genuine sense of pride & conviction in a waiter’s recommendation, it was so compelling I gasped and said YES, THAT!!! He laughed and said ok. It was then I noticed this seemed to be the only dish coming out of the kitchen, so I started to feel relieved and excited. After a glass of wine and crusty bread it was my turn and then out it came - and he was right. Simple, clean with the most intense lobster flavour, wet rice that had the consistency of molten lava. It was astonishing, and I felt like 12 months of planning 5 weeks travel in Spain had culminated in that one moment. Food experiences in restaurants are normally built on more than just the food, and this has become one of the best food experiences I can remember.More
