“Beautiful old house”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2011

We ate here for three nights whilst staying at the Pazo Cibran. It offers very good rates for the Menu del Dia but also has a very good menu. The food is excellent and the place although quiet when we were there is full of atmosphere

“Foodie heaven. Local fresh food expertly prepared and a bargain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2011 via mobile

After getting lost we got to the restaurant an hour late! However it is welcoming, and beautifully kept inside.
We chose the 6 course degaustation menu which was made up of hearty local portions of fish, carne and very well presented. Tasted great paired with a bottle of White local wine and red for an extra €7 !!!! what else could be better value? Well worth the trip and recommended highly.

“Excellent food in a delightful venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2010

Roberto's is 7 km outside Santiago (c.15 euros by taxi) in an ancient country Meson. After 9:30 on a November night, it was dark when we arrived but the courtyard was well lit, revealing a stone barn with huge wine barrels, a medieval raised stone granary, and a very distinctive stone farmhouse. Upon entering we were shown to the main dining room where half a dozen tables cluster in front of a huge (baronial? kitchen?) fireplace. Other dining rooms were evident but we did not explore them further as we were soon served an amuse bouche of langustino wrapped in philo and anchovies on toast. A plentiful sparkling water and variety of excellent breads were refilled as the evening progressed.
We chose the most expensive dinner on the menu - the 35 euro degustacion of six courses, though the 25 euro set meal or the ala carte menu items looked fine as well. we were certainly not disappointed. The meal began with a workmanlike mushroom soup, followed by a nearly brilliant giant scallop on a thick asparagus cream. Half a dozen classically prepared coquilles saint jacques provided a nice, if slightly redundant treat before the arrival of the main fish course of turbot, perfectly done nd accompanied by interesting and careful vegetable sides. This was followed by an unnecessary, but delicious fillet mignon.
By this time (nearly midnight), the three of us had completed the second bottle of house selected wine and were more than full. The desert course however brought our appetites back - three small dishes presented a dark chocolate mousse with sea salt and oil (it worked!), a baked apple and a whipped meringue-like citron dish. We followewd these with coffees.
The 47 euro's per person total was more than the average meal in santiago (though many worse dinners could be had in town for more), but was a bargain for what we (three North American foodies with liots of Spanish eating experience) considered one of th best meals we had ever had in Spain. The chef offers Galician cooking classes in the summer, and these together with the three rooms in the Inn, the glassed in eating terrace and large gardens beyond, must make this an incredible summer experience - one we hope to discover on our next visit.

“Good food in a noble's family mansion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2010

I didn't know these places existed. You can feel the history as you step in to what must have been a noble's familly mansion. The food and wine offers regional specialties at very affordable prices, especially if you use one of the menus on offer. Don't miss out on the little grilled green peppers, they are amazing and you won't find them anywhere else!

“WOW”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2009

I have to say that as a very demanding foodie, this place just blew me away. Located 6 km outside of Santiago, it has a controversial history. It has a Michelin star at one point and expensive menus. I do not know the details of what happened but at 40 Euro a person with wine (lunch) this is one of the best value meals I have has in a long time for this quality of food. The service was good but not excessively friendly and the deserts were weak but the rest was amazing. The setting a is an old country house in Ciban (there is a lovely country hotel just next door). The inside is dripping with warmth and it feels like the tables have been spread out on the four or five living rooms of the first floor of the house. There is a degustation menu which is a bit more expensive but well worth it for anyone that wants to explore the delicacies of the local produce and cooking. Great Ribeiras and Godillos to go with the food. Great spot to celebrate the end of the Camino!!
