Hugo Ruiz, the chef-owner of the former Bugao restaurant in Ceuta, turned the concept around to transform it into Goichu: a benchmark establishment on the Ceuta scene with a renewed proposal that fuses Basque, Oriental and fish from the Strait of Gibraltar, combining the sea with the land and meats of northern Spain in a menu acclaimed by critics and by all the diners who have passed through its tables.

Piscolabis Gastrobar Ceuta

Piscolabis Gastrobar, Tapas Magazine’s T de Oro restaurant, defines itself as ‘the king of the countryside’ and the ‘king of the sea’. The second project of Hugo Ruiz, one of the great national culinary figures, is located on the Ribiera beach, and has permanent views of the south bay.
