Leaving Molinaseca, on the Camino, I took the road route into Ponferrada, then I missed the turning off the road and ended up coming into the town on the wrong road, thank goodness I did.
I stopped just for a beer but the waiter bought my beer and a small bowl of mussels. These were the best mussels I have ever tasted and if you have read any of my other reviews, you will know I like my food.
They were so good I stopped for Sunday lunch and ate well on the Pilgrims menu for very few euros.
It is a very short walk from the town centre, where you would pay twice the price and it is very close to the Albergue San Nicholas de Flue.
Very good food, good service at a bargain price, another Grey Packer Gem!

We went there as a couple for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. The place is just five minutes from the city centre and it is well worth the short journey.

The restaurant is big, and has a friendly atmosphere, the staff are very friendly and helpful. We chose the 16 euro menu de degustacion (which included a whole bottle of wine!) and a main course to share between two. As we were waiting, we were brought a small 'pinchito' of 12 huge, tasty mussels with no extra charge.

Both the starter (rice with botillo sausage) and the two main dishes (beef and chicken a la brasa) were superb, and we were reminded several times that we could always ask for more to be brought at no extra cost.

We finished the meal with a lovely slice of chocolate cake and were amazed to find that the bill came to a mere 27 euros. That's a free plate of mussels, a plate of rice which served us both comfortably, two main courses of quality grilled meat, a dessert to share, a bottle of wine and two beers. All fantastic, and all for 27 euros.

Highly recommended, and if we ever come back to Ponferrada, we will certainly return to Braseria Daniella!

We got there on a Wednesday night closer to 10 pm. We were welcomed by the chef/owner, Dani.
We ordered a bottle of a local winery, and Dani provided a small plate with roasted veggies, while we waited for our dinner. My husband ordered the setas (mushrooms), and I ordered the mussels. Both plates were not only delicious, but also different from all traditional plates offer everywhere else locally. Then he presented us with a "parilla" , an assortment of meats ( chicken, veal, and beef). The meats were cooked to perfection, and the smoke flavor from the real wood fire grill was out of this world!
For dessert, I had the homemade oanacota, and my husband had the vanilla mouse.These dessert belong to a 5 stars restaurant.
If you are looking for something different and high quality, and also reasonable, this is the place to go!

Thank Carolina D
