    Ribadesella, Spain

    June 8, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Ribadesella is about a 25 minute drive from Llanes and well worth the trip! It is a very busy and popular place on a weekend with something for everyone whether it be a walk along the beautiful waterfront, a visit to the beach (calm side or surf side), fishing, views, restaurants, cafés, bars, or food food food! Cider is big here - when you order a glass of cider, the custom is that the escanciadore (cider pourer) artfully decants fizzing local brews pouring it from a great height! They don't look at the glass or the bottle they pour from! I love that they keep the tradition going!
    We ate at a small cafe that offered a lunch special - entrée, main, dessert, bread and a drink for €12. The waiter did not speak a word of English and of course our Spanish was poorly delivered but another great meal was enjoyed by all. Another custom we've noticed with these special 3 course meals (not only here) is that they put a whole bottle of wine on the table and you drink what you want - one glass or the whole bottle. It is still included in the price as advertised!
