After 25 years, we were revisiting Luarca, and decided to have lunch at the port. We parked right in front of Barometro, a restaurant that had good reviews, but the owner said we had to wait for 1 hour, so we decided to take a walk around and 100 meters ahead we found Sport Restaurant. As our sugar levels were down, and they had available tables, we decided to have lunch here instead. It was a wonderful experience. The owner was very agreeable, they had an extensive menu and the food we ordered was excellent, and the prices were much better than they would have been at Barometro. I would strongly recommend people to come to this restaurant. This was in November 2014, but since the Tripadvisor box does not have that date, we logged it as June 2015, the earliest available.
On the way back to the car, we were approached by the owner of Barometro, that was cursing and insulting us for not having eaten at his place. A really disgusting scene, not particularly good for tourism, and that tells us that probably nobody should visit his restaurant...

A small and cosy restaurant decorated with fishing items. The menu features fish and shellfish prominently (no surprise). The teenagers (being teenagers) avoided anything sea-like, and went with pork and beef. Well liked--though one complaint that the red pepper was not ketchup! Tortilla was not potato based, but more like omelette but tasty nonetheless. Squid in its ink was to die for (and I guess they did--but much appreciated). Shrimp with garlic was OK--but not comparable to US gulf shrimp. Dad (squid) would have rated above a four, but voted down by family.

Stopped in after getting off the overnight ferry from France, and ate in the more casual cafe/bar section. Great seafood and well-priced.

There was nothing fantastic about this place but nothing terrible either. I thought it was a bit pricey and the outside Seating area was cramped (a a lady basically ate with her side on my back) so i probably wouldn't go back.Gracias por su comentario

This place used to be even a disco (now is closed), now focused in the restaurant. Good menu with plenty of options, fish, seafood and meat-lovers will find here multiple options to choose from. The service was quite professional and they even offered small ´tapas´ while having some drinks waiting for lunch time. The grill works very well and the meat we asked for was delicious, so the seafood. It was full of people despite the place is relatively big, so it means is a good place to eat. Prices were not bad, maybe it´s not the cheapest place in Spain, but I do not consider this place as somewhere you will ruin your savings neither. I will definitely come back.

The Villuir is a Spanish version of an American truck stop. Located on the N-634 on the northern Camino road along the coast. Large parking lot filled with cars, trucks and buses. Enter into the bar for drinks and tapas or go deeper to a nice Seating area with table cloths and linen napkins. We stopped for lunch mid week and had a nice meal of fabada (Asturian bean soup/stew) with great bread. It was served in a soup tureen and there was plenty. The bar held mostly truck and bus drivers (the international sign of good food) and the restaurant hosted families, working men on lunch break and what seemed like a group of businessmen for a lunch meeting. Our waiter was very attentive and there was an english menu for help ordering. The Villuir seems to be a local stop and also nice place to eat as you pass through the region.

El pasado Domingo estuve comiendo en este restaurante con mi marido.
Al llegar lo primero que ves es la zona del bar con unos sofás y mesas altas con vistas al mar (perfecto para tomarte algo relajadamente escuchando el mar).
Teníamos reserva en terraza para comer y he de decir que las fotos no hacen justicia con lo que es la realidad.
Las vistas son preciosas y si a todo esto le sumamos que la comida (comimos un arroz con vieiras e ibéricos y delante un pastel de cabracho cortesía del camarero) está exquisita y el trato de los camareros es buenísimo... no me queda otra opción que recomendar este restaurante a todo el que busque estas tres condiciones.
Relación calidad precio inmejorable!!!!

A very pleasent resturant specialising in sea food.
Its a friendly resturant but difficult to differentiate from others near by.
Salads were very basic. No thought, not only here, but in many other resturants, to vegetarians. Salards could be so much more interesting.
Otherwise, good people running the resturant.

We spent two extremely enjoyable evenings here on a visit from London during the Easter holidays: well fed, well watered and very well treated in the bar area on evenings when the place was absolutely full with people watching the Champions League semi-finals or coming in after one of the Easter Week processions. The place was humming and full of apparently happy customers, including us. A local treat. We strongly recommend it.

Found this little cake and coffee shop while wandering around the town. Had a lovely hot coffee and cake from the shop and sat in the window people watching. Coffees also came with a tiny little almondy treat which we didn't expect. The cost was minimal half of what you would pay for the same in the UK. If passing pop in and try some of their treats!
Ps locals east here too!
