Down the road from the tourist office, this ordinary-looking restaurant serves excellent and abundant Spanish cooking for some of the best prices in the area. Inside, traditional wine barrels share space with modern leather stools, pine furniture, and a wide-screen television. There's also an outside terrace. Open all day from early to late, the Mesón serves breakfast, snacks, tapas, lunch and dinner—it's often bustling and more than a little loud. Specialties include
pulpo a la brasa (grilled octopus), solomillo al jerez con cabrales (pork steak in a sherry and blue-cheese sauce) and pluma ibérica al foie (Iberian pork with foie gras). The service is friendly, although it can be slow when the restaurant's busy. Finish off with a liqueur or something from the impressive gin list.
