The prices are the average in Spain and service are good. The seafood is good without be great, but you can eat well in this restaurant. Some dishes take a little bit long to prepare.

Our service was very good. Our waiter tried very hard to serve us in English. The food was very good, all the seafood is fresh! It is very pleasant to sit outside on their terraced patio and watch the octopus prepared. Great wines and very reAsonable. Ask for a home made dessert.

The place is very nice and the outside tables invite you to this restaurant with old fashion waiters dressed as back old times. The octopus is a speciality and cooked just in front of you. The problem is the service that is very poor. They forget to bring some of the orders we request and when we were waiting for... More

We stopped by this restaurant for lunch after a long morning of shopping in Vigo. Service was good and the food was delicious. We really enjoyed the outdoor patio that they have. We would come back here when we come to Vigo again.

One month ago we visit the restaurant again, and the service was only medium, they could not serve all the courses on the menu card, and not all wine on the wine card... More

We were walking around Vigo and saw the inviting patio. There were only 2 tables occupied. The octopus was cooked in front of us and beautifully prepared. The razor clams were ok. I've had better. Our bill came to 36 euro which I thought was reasonable. Our waiter was very nice and helped us connect to the wifi. The razor... More

A bit disappointing. The steak was so-so, the waiters moderately attentive, the vegetables clearly from a can. the restaurant is in a nice setting, but its not somewhere I'd rush back to.

The bread with ajollio was great and the fillet was good quality meat, brought to the ordered grade. The dinner was... More

We were on the lookout for outstanding octopus in Vigo and we found it – go here and get the pulpo de don Quijote and you will not be disappointed! I’ve had a lot of pulpo throughout spain and this was by far the best preparation and juiciest pulpo I’ve had. The restaurant overall is a great stop with friendly,... More
