MARVELOUS

In two words: SO NICE. Food was delicious. We asked for seafood and it was extremely fresh and nice. The waiters were so kind and the ambient was wondering.

We stopped in here quite unintentionally and were completely delighted. The service was outstanding and the food top notch. I had seared tuna with potatoes and vegetables and my daughter had the seafood stew (merluza a la berberecha) and it was incredible. For dessert we had chocolate cake with citrus ice-cream, which had us fighting over the last mouthful. We... More

This is one of the highest quality restaurants in Sanxenxo. Which is no easy feat. The shellfish is amazing and there are some sophisticated dishes. But don't miss the Merluza con grelos for a true taste of Galicia. Simple yet sublime. The manager gives excellent advice and is very friendly and gracious. Highlight of our trip

The place looks good, the staff look smart and it is a great location. Customers were queuing for tables and so they must be doing something right. I thought that the food was good and the prices reasonable. I went there with my wife as a compromise as in Galicia I would eat Mariscada everyday but it is always for... More

it is good but no good option and felt that 'average' would be too harsh. location- by marina, boats and all that. but many more restaurants have exactly the same view as it is a rather large Marina. service is attentive, everything is crisp and clean. staff do not speak much english but i am not saying that this is...

Front line on the harbour, well reviewed and well decked out, both the room and the levered waitresses. Yet in spite of all this, just like the Carmen of the opera, it all flatters to deceive. For behind the booking bluster lies a perfectly adequate nothing special menu, similar to most other restaurants but here at a higher price. Want... More

Whenever I go to Sansenxo, I have to make a mandatory stop at the restaurant Carmen! It has excellent views over the marina, the employees are very friendly and the food is simply delicious. Do not forget to taste the "revuelto de setas", "chipirones" and "paella". Very good.

We just went for coffee. And I discovered to my delight that in the toilet there are very friendly advice on sexual health. I have never seen that before, except in gay bars. And the advice was good and serves a fine little reminder. Only for that I think the place deserves an "excellent" note !
