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

Beautiful restaurant with waterside views and outside terraced tables. Great staff and good seafood- Pulpo (octopus) being the speciality.

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.

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

This restaurant is in a lovely location and has a nice menu, but the food is disappointing and the staff were the most disinterested and unhelpful of any I came across in Vigo. There are so many restaurants in the city I would suggest that you give this one a miss.

Great food and wine. Quite serviceminded staff. During summer the terrace is probably a nice place to have dinner.

Nice restaurant but nothing specially interesting and prices on the upper side. The outside dining area is a bit uncomfortable and accident prone because of the floor inclination. Service was chaotic: starter served with the main meal with no explanation why. Probably will not return.

Central in Vigo, in a very nice location, carefully selected products, fresh seafood (& octopus in barrels), multilingual service, we had a great evening! certainly not a tourist trap!
