We chose this restaurant after two of our previous choises were closed due to staff vacation. We had been walking for about an hour, but it was totally worth it. There were no tourists, only locals. The octopus was incredibly tender and tasty. All the...More

We have eaten here a while back and our cousin suggested we go back. She’s local. The menu is simple. We enjoyed every bit of our octopus, potatoes and pimientos de Padron. There’s not much else to choose to eat. What they do, they do...More

1. Only one recipe of "pulpo" and a bit salty for me. 2. No other options but octopus. Which is understandable as it's an "octopus house". Nevertheless, we expected other octopus cooking styles; not just one ("a la feira").More

If you want to eat like the locals then this is the place. Nothing fancy, don't dress up, but welcoming and a real taste of Spain. The menu is just octopus with a few side dishes. We loved it!

If you really want to eat pulpo with the locals, that's the place to go to. If you want to sit down in a touristy restaurant, then there is plenty downtown who would be happy to grab your dineros. I have personally walked 3 km...More

Not much more to say really. Their octopus is cooked to perfection, and they have wine, beer to go with it. You could also get the 'cachelos' (boiled potatoes) if you are very hungry, but that means that you get less octopus. They also have...More
