Description: "Verruga" is one of the most classic and oldest restaurants in Lugo. Since he took the reins in 1951 the family that currently runs "Verruga" went from being a traditional tavern in the city to the cozy and popular restaurant it is today.Its small size, with only 14 tables, was not an impediment to accommodate large customers such as Julio Iglesias, Charlton Heston and many lucenses and visitors who honor us every day with their presence.El "Verruga" es uno de los restaurantes más clásicos y antiguos de Lugo. Desde que en 1.951 tomó sus riendas la familia que actualmente lo regenta, el "Verruga" pasó de ser una taberna típica de la ciudad al acogedor y popular restaurante que hoy es.Su pequeño tamaño, con tan sólo 14 mesas, no ha sido impedimento para acoger a grandes clientes como Julio Iglesias, Charlton Heston o los muchos lucenses y visitantes que nos honran día a día con su presencia.

“Elegant and charming”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

We visited based on the reviews and ordered the seafood soup, vegetable platter and eggs with mushrooms. My impression upon further thought is that we ordered poorly, perhaps this is a retaurant where one should order meat, By putting together a meal that contained vegetables (lacking in most restaurant). I think we were served some side dishes that the restaurant is not so proud of.

“For seafood tapas, don't miss Verruga”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2011

We stopped in Lugo for lunch and had read about Verruga. We sat at the bar for tapas and the staff was great. They worked with us as we selected various seafood items. In spite of language differences, they effectively communicated prices and volumes for the fresh seafood items.

Thank you very much for your kind comments.
We always communicate effectively weights of seafood served (prices listed in the letter but there is no problem for those who want to clarify).
In Anyhow, I insist, I very much appreciate your comments.
