When I pass in Santiago, I always go to Taberna do Bispo. I eat in many restaurants in Compostela and for me this is the best one for tapas!!

After the recommendation of a friend, myself and my Mother arrived at A Taberna do Bispo for tapas at around 6:40PM tonight. We were lucky enough to get a table right away. Unfortunately, we do not speak Spanish, but our server was kind enough to help us out. He suggested we come up to the front of the restaurant to... More

We went into this restaurant with high expectations and were not disappointed. We let our server offer us various choices of Tapas and every one of them was excellent. The dessert was a variation on a cheesecake and was the best we have had. You will not be disappointed.

If you can get in the door and find a place to sit or stand, you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing tapas. Good quality. Fantastic presentation. Smartly dressed, efficient staff. You can eat more cheaply in Santiago de Compostela, but this is an enjoyable experience.

Waited some time to get a table, but it was worth the waiting. Very good tapas, good wine, good service - the restaurant is not big, it was crowded and noisy but never mind - the food was outstanding!

This was a great place for tapas at as reasonable price. The restaurant was very busy and loud, but staff was friendly and accommodating.

We went out late searching for food. Taking into the account the time and all, I was on the lookout for some tapas or pinchos...when I saw this place. The counter was full and the price looked reasonable. We carried on a little further, but decided to turn back. The decision wasn't regretted at all! Trying to keep the cost... More

My wife and I have been to Spain four times since 2004, each time for at least a month, so we know a thing or two about tapas. It is hard to choose among the different flavours in different regions of Spain, as in each case you will get what's specific to the local food system. In Santiago de Compostela... More

Visited twice as based on menus/ambience one of the better tapas places on the main strip/ Generous portions/good choice of dishes/quick service and good wine list. Is busy though so you may need to wait for a table!
