Typical Galician restaurant

I have been many times to this place. The seafood here is just delicious. It is not neccesarily super cheap. Even though the last time I went it was kind of dissapointing because some plates were smaller than they used to be or a bit salty. However, this restaurant deserve a visit.

The food it's great, focused on galicia cuisine. Staff could be more friendly but nothing that bad. The place is quite simple, and decoration is very interesting. Can be overcrowded and loud during lunch and dinner, but it's possible to reserve it, so not a problem at all... Despite some problem, the food itself make all the trouble goes away.

I was there with a group of friends, several of them from Galicia (which was one of the reasons for going there in the first place). The place looks good, we had a good time and the food was good, but not excellent. Also, in Galicia the portions are usually big, and that was not the case here. The service... More

Agree with earlier reviewers that staff is a bit surly- and slow 2 tables around us were native speakers and complained mightily about how slow the dishes were in coming. We were in no hurry and had no problem with the wait. Shared a delicious pitcher of sangria- with a cinnamon undertone and a large plate of peppers from Padron.... More

This place is nice and quaint, good coffee, good service and authentic tapas. Was here for a quick early meal and would definitely go back again.

The food is cooked in the Galician style of northern Spain. The place is unpretentious and authentic -- communal tables, wine served in clay bowls, the most amazing octopus and razor clams you'll ever eat. As a bonus, the second time we went late one afternoon, they made a big, fiery vat of Queimada, and served it to all the... More

This small taberna is situated not far from the Prado Museum and is also easily reachable from Plaza Mayor with a small walk. It gives the opportunity to eat Galician dishes including fish, in particular octopus (the speciality of this place, as it seems), with a good quality level and keeping low prices. Big portions! ___________ Situato tra il Prado... More

We ate at this place last year for lunch and it was fine. This year was another story. The place has physically changed. Looks as if they combined with the place next door. Food servers are loud and rude, and my wife speaks fluent Spanish. I would never go here without speaking the language. Portions were average to small. Our... More

In one word: divine. But we must not spread, so it can keep its atmosphere (including the staff's bad mood) for next time.

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood Profile
Huertas
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighborhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighborhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
