For the price you pay, you may get much better options. Food and service is average, a bit old fashioned...

Attention is almost everything, when entering this restaurant most striking is their attention, apparently typical of the region, not only good care is important, the menu are very good and especially the pulp a la Gallega of course.

You can find another much better very near: the Enxebre at Costa do Cristo (this street is just in front of Carretas restaurant).
