Great location, good food

We were on a walking tour of Santiago and our guide was asking the owner of this restaurant where I could get a good dinner and watch the Champions League match between Real Madrid and Juventus. Our guide knew the owner from university and vouched for the place. We went back the next day for lunch... read more

We went 4 people and all got seafood: 2 Lenguado (sole), one bacalao a la galego and one robadello a la planch. The White Wine was "pazo do Mar" nice and a little bit fruity, perfect for fish. The food was served with potatoes, one small salat leave and a piece of not matured tomato - could have been done... More

We stopped by mid-afternoon for a soft drink and a snack. We were served promptly and the Spanish omelet we had was better than many. Prices are competitive with other establishment and are increased slightly when you sit outside. Very pleasant square near the cathedral.

Dinner on Monday night. It was quite empty. The service was nice (nothing sophisticated), but the food a bit of a let down. Croquetas sticky and hard to chew. Fish was almost floating in the orange colored oil, maybe is the way locals like it? So more the matter of taste. Hate to say it, but the worst meals of... More

We ate here on a Sunday night and for most of our visit the place was deserted! Then a large family arrived and the atmosphere improved dramatically. San Jaime was our backup (see my review of O Paris) and it proved to be everything we needed in terms of food, wine, local again, and service. Highly recommended!

My wife & I ate here twice on our 3 night stay, lunch and dinner, both times downstairs so we could soak up the atmosphere. 'Gifts' of food arrive with a drinks order, peppers, Spanish omelette etc which were very tasty and the ordered food was too. We also stopped here a few times while just wandering in the evenings...

The restaurant was just across the plaza from us. The place was packed and as we walked up, the waiter was just cleaning a table so we swooped in. Outdoor seating of course. We decided to eat tapas style and everything was tasty. The food came quickly, our waiter was fantastic. We had a wonderful time. Highly recommend you eat... More

Beer & raciones were the order of the day. Enormous platter of standard jamon, chorizo & cheeses. Calamari was fresh & tasty. "Normal" salad was covered in raw white onion but otherwise crisp & fresh. Friendly service on a busy lunchtime
