If you are ever in Ourense and want to try area food specialties, this is the place! Clean, rustic restaurant with courteous and friendly waiters, ready to suggest what is fresh and available.

What they do is Pulpo (octopus) and they do it very well. We went there for a quick lunch and the pulpo was spectacular.

Service is pretty quick even when the place is crowded. Food is good with reasonable prices and amounts. I tried pulpo, salmon with cheese and pimientos and they were fine. I go to the place every time I visit Orense.

We had lunch here at a table in the empty dining room. There's a bar, too. We ordered the pulp a feira (octopus)-it was SO GOOD. We also ordered a meat/cheese mixed plate and it was enormous and delicious, along with bread and wine. Decent prices and good food.

Tasteless tapas and grumpy, bored barman. Can't comment on restaurant but my advice is to avoid the bar. We had our bag stolen in here and the batman was unhelpful and aggressive when we returned to ask about it.
