We truly enjoyed tasting some Gallego dishes and seafood. The service was excellent and the suggestions were great. We enjoyed our desserts especially the Tartara de mi Abuela was yummy! We tried peceberes (a crustacean delicacy) and gallego wine.

We stopped here for lunch firstly because the menu del dia was only 8 euros and looked promising, and secondly because it was busy with Spanish customers (families and business people, as well as tourists). The food was Galician and very good. 3 courses, bread, a glass of wine, a bottle of water, and coffee. Extraordinary value.

We stopped off here on the way after fleeing the oyster bar strip and the high pressure sales people trying to get us to sit at their tables. Here we were a bit early, but greeted with a smile despite not yet officially being open. The menu of the day included so many choices that we ordered four of those... More

We were looking for somewhere with good seafood and salads on this hot summer day. We found it! This is perfect for light outdoor eating. The food was very good and excellent value but this place is not for a formal three course event, others around us who were here for something grander all looked disappointed. Service is friendly but... More

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.
