This is a part Pintxos-bar-restuarant place out of town a ways near the university. Nicely decorated and seemingly very popular with locals (who all looked quite well-dressed). They sell wines by the glass (good value at about 2 euro a glass) and the bottle list seemed very fairly priced (if you avoid the Vega Sicilia). Their selling point seemed to be the sale of quality wine by the glass (I am not familiar enough with spanish wines to verify the range) and I did not try any.
I had a prawn carpaccio starter (never saw this before) and "old Galacian cow steak" with frites (to quote from the english translated menu). The waitress was very nice but no one in the place spoke any English, but we got by. The carpaccio was incredibly thinly sliced (in cross-section) prawns with olive oil and salt; I could not tell whether they were cooked or not (it was cold and as they were very very thin slices). I though it was unusual and moderately pleasant. Well presented and executed. The steak came browned nicely on the outside but so raw on the inside that it nearly fought back (the old cow). No one asks you what way you want your steak (in my experience), it just always comes like this bloody and blue. It was ok but really rare meat would not be my automatic choice and it was a bit chewy (bad chewy).
So this is not haute cuisine but it has a nice air and gives you a good sense of where and how the locals eat (without being too rough and ready). On those grounds I would recommend it.
