We visited La Mejillonera one night attracted by the idea of eating some squid, octopus and mussels, the only kind of food that they serve. However we were not very happy with the experience overall - they serve the plates with abundant hot sauce, which is not the best thing to do as you miss the delicate flavour of the... More

Great idea, lousy execution-all the guide books tout this place but not sure why. It is a bit unique as it mainly does mussels, as its name implies. Most Marisco places serve a wide range of seafood. The sauces were unremarkable, the fries soggy, but the bread was awesome and the wait staff attentive. Go to A Coruna for seafood,... More

I went twice, because blue mussels were fresh and delicious. Because there was a list of menu, it was easy to order.

We went here with our Spanish-speaking guides, who did the ordering for us. I can't remember the names of the dishes, but everything was absolutely delicious. We had a salad with calamari, beef with potatioes. There were so many wonderful dishes at a great price. The chocolate soup, though, is a must.

Think no further, this is the place you want to head to while visiting Burgos... at least if you like mussels. They serve them in a variety of ways and they are absolutely delicious. Go for the ones with a "taste of the sea". I'd go back!

Stopped in for a cup of Ribera (good Roble), and ordered a racion of steamed mussels. Mussels were very good (though I left the one that was a weird tan instead of orange) for less than 3 euro.

One of the best and most typical places where locals go for an appetizer before lunch. For me the best are the patatas bravas and the mejillones (mussels). Tasty and affordable.

I agree with a previous review, make this your first tapa bar of the evening and you won't be disappointed! They source their mussels from the nearby coast, easily some of the best mussels I've had anywhere and you can't beat the buzz of this place. They run a tight ship, and the lighter nature of their offerings makes this... More

Loved the bar seating and personal attention of the barkeep; spicy sauce was only mildly spicy, but still good. Wished there were a few more varieties of sauces. Good for a quick snack or larger meal.

Get here early as it's popular!! We missed out on our first night in Burgos as it was way too busy. The following night we got a seat and were wowed by the food and atmosphere. First off we had eight of the marinara mussels with a couple of glasses of the house white. Next, the picantas ones with a... More
