It offers homemade Galician cuisine of an incomparable quality. The specialty of the house par excellence is Rice, prepared in different ways and with the best products coming from our coasts. If you wish, you can take it home. The seasonal dish is the Laconada, star product of the summer.

We enjoyed our lunch of tapas here; not as good value or quality as some of the central La Coruna places but very acceptable nonetheless. Service was a bit slow/ sporadic but they were busy and seemed a bit understaffed. We loved the tapas we...More

The restaurant can be found nearby Torre de Hercules and we took the chance to go there after a long walk for lunch. Nothing wrong with the food and the service but nothing extraordinary either. We found it overpriced compared to other restaurants in La...More

We visited this restaurant for a family lunch, and as we live on the same street, we had to try!! Well, we had a wonderful time, fish and meat dishes were tasty and the service was friendly and quick. We will return soon for sure.

Best Paella I’ve ever had! The rest seemed very good also, from the clams to the steaks. View to the North Atlantic and part of the city. Strongly recommend.

We had a wonderful dinner here- a starter of pulpo (octopus), followed by seafood paella and great wine. Our waitress was the sweetest and was very attentive. We passed on dessert, but she sent us home with a piece of cheesecake on the house.
