The culinary experience in Arriondas and its surroundings promises to delight the most discerning palates. From traditional dishes such as fabada, pote, and cachopos, to a wide variety of fresh fish and seafood from the Cantabrian Sea, passing through the renowned cheeses with Protected Designation of Origin, such as Gamoneu or Cabrales, and the inevitable Natural Cider, "poured" according to Asturian tradition. Additionally, the Parres council boasts two restaurants awarded three Michelin stars, offering exceptional gastronomic experiences.
