If you have visited any busy bar you will have noticed how the camareros will set up many coffee plates with spoons and sugar packets to prepare for rush hour. The restaurant does the same but with utensils and your glass in the middle of plates to prepare for the rush of local workers who frequent this gem. A true hole in the wall and you can easily find the local flavors that true locals eat daily. With 10€ menú it doesn't attract many tourists but draws many local workers to eat in 30 minutes or for 1.5 hours. The servers and cooks work close together and are very courteous which is not the norm in Spain. A lot of the food is homemade to include the desserts. It's worth the stop if you want local food that is cheap too!

Apart from the free availability of wifi, time has stood still for Restaurant Gorio. From my memories of 40 years ago in Spanish family restaurants like this, the food is as wholesome ( amazing Lentil soup served in a Tureen), the service friendly and attentive, the value for money unbelievably good (10 euros for a 3 course meal) the wine gutsy (!), toilets clean...so pleased we went in. Thank you Restaurant Gorio, great memories before we left on the ferry to head back to the UK.

Situated a hundred yards from the ferry port, the Gorio is the perfect place for simple lunch before the ferry. You need to go upstairs and then it's 3 courses + coffee which includes all beer and wine for €10. The food was very substantial and tasty and the service was lightening fast. Recommended!
