We had very high expectations for this restaurant based on the reviews here on tripadvisor and the recommendation of a friend. First, the business hours as listed her on trip advisor are incorrect. The restaurant opens at 13:30, not 13:00. (However, it should be noted that the correct hours are on their website.) When we arrived at 13:20, the restaurant... More

Galicia is well known as a place with spectacular seafood dining options. I agree! However, after several days of indulgence eating amazing seafood, prepared perfectly and simply, my family was craving something different. Casa Marcelo was a perfect option during our brief visit to Santiago de Compostela. The atmosphere is clean and modern and upscale casual. The menu offers a... More

If you are older and wiser - avoid! The menu is written in impossibly small print. The portions are even smaller. Good news - the kitchen is in full view and watching the many chefs working is wonderful. Bad news - you have to sit at a long, communal table on high, uncomfortable stools. The waitress was knowledgeable and helpful.... More

Shouldn't work, but it does. Very unusual menu but everything we tried was lovely. Lunchtime is best.

Do not miss this jewel in the heart of Santiago. Eating in Casa Marcelo was for me, one of my most enjoyable food experiences of the year.

The food here was superb. It was imaginative and flavourful. Each dish was beautiful to look at and incredible to taste. We couldn't book seats at the communal table and were told to drop by at 9pm. Get in early to get seats.

If you are looking for a fun evening of Tapas with friends, delicious wine, and fantastic service... This is the place to go. Over two visits, we almost covered their ever changing menu. Each plate just as delicious as the last. Great atmosphere in which you have an open view of the kitchen. Exciting to watch as you enjoy your... More

This is not a classic tapas bar with traditional finger food. In Casa Marcelo you will be surprised by an inventive and surprising cuisine and large wine choice. Very gentle service in English and French. A place you must have visited when you are in Santiago.

I came here last night with my husband, wigwam3. We decided that this deserved a second visit on our last night in Santiago de Compostela. The dishes we selected were even better than last night. We were remembered from last night and greeted as friends. We started with a new dish that the chef was testing of salted tuna on... More

Two of us dined here on a Friday night. We had checked out the restaurant at around 4pm but it was closed with no signs of opening hours. We walked by again at around 8:15pm and it was still closed and dark through the windows. At 8.45 there was a light on inside and at 9pm the door was open.... More
