The seafood is a good range and mostly it is very well cooked – the fried squid being a good example as it was lightly done, not like in the UK where the life is... More

We didn't enjoy the pulpo so much, which put us off the restaurant at first. After a week, however, we realised this was simply the Gallego style and it was in fact the best we tried anywhere in Galicia. It's very oily and very salty. An acquired taste.
