This is a very classic restaurant with a great selection of meat and fish. They are known for their Suckling Pig (Cocinillo) which is out of sight, falling of the bone tender and moist. You will probably not see it on the menu but they almost always have it unless they have run out so ask for it. It is out of sight. We have gone multiple times over the past several years and it has always been great.

Oviedo is a traditional restaurant that offers a large menu good food and with good ambiance . However the presence of the past chef is very much noticed. Service is ok but far from friendly. Good wine options too!

restaurant was recommended to us by hotel concierge. the level of indifference of the staff and owner started as soon as we entered. no greeting, the waiter did not acknowledge us as he handed us the menu. the couvert was a joke. a few pieces of stale bread and two little pieces of some pudding. my wife ordered a fish which was tasteless and the i ordered one of the house specialties, pasta with a bolognese sauce. i was able to find two tiny morsels of meat in the sauce. after paying the check, with the with the waiter not acknowledging his tip, we got up to leave. we asked the owner who was at the door to get us a taxi. he said impossible, it takes twenty minutes. we walked out and got a taxi on the street. if you want poor treatment and tasteless food, oviedo is for you.

We enjoyed our meal here in this traditional Recoleta eatery. Service and food are taken seriously here and the atmosphere is quite formal. We shared the suckling pig for main which was very good and were glad that we did because it was very large after a starter each plus salad. The wine selection looked great but we settled for a glass of malbec each.
