Candás is a sea port from the region of Carreño. This village is bathed by the Cantabric sea and has become a popular summer destination. Undoubtly, eating in Candás will add a plus to your holidays.

The village of Candás is the capital of Carreño. On the Cantabric sea, this fishermen town offers quality fish and seafood. As it is typical in Asturias, the servings at every restaurant are huge. If you are looking for ideas on what to eat in Candás, we recommend you the bonito (tuna) and centollo (crab). They are part of every caldereta and parrillada and come acompaigned by local products. It is nice to try them during the Tunna Gastronomic Fair. If you are passionate about seafood you can also go to the Crab Gastronomic Fair that takes place in one of the restaurants.

As in every locality from Asturias, desserts are a must. The classical arroz con leche (rice with milk) and the marañuelas are mandatory. These sweets are easy to do and are made with boiled butter. Do not hesitate to try them and visit the Cabo de Peñas and its famous lighthouse!

Tourism has contributed to increase the development of the hostelry so it will be easy to find a bar where to taste a cold beer or a glass of sidra served with some tapas. We recommend going to La Botica Indiana and to the Vinatería El Retiro.

In La Botica Indiana they will offer you different types of beers, cocktails and vermús that will be served with a tapa. On the other hand, in the Vinatería El Retiro, the best thing to do is to have a beer and then order the menu.
