I had dinner here with a group of friends. The restaurant is pretty inside, the dim light and stony walls create a pleasant atmosphere. We shared two carafes of margarita, I recommend it especially in warm weather. The dishes were good, carefully prepared and nicely...More

Me and my girlfriend enjoyed the place. The restaurant has a more cosy atmosphere than most Spanish restaurants. They serve good nachos with 4 different sauces so you can dig in straight away. The menu explains all the dishes well (in Spanish of course) and...More

Thank you for your comments, Janbso. We regret that you had a busy night in our restaurant. In summer, and mainly on weekends, we have nights with many clients. We hope to see you soon. Thank you.

This mexican restaurant is one the best mexican restaurants in Spain, the food is very good but the staff is unfriendly and they try you finish your dishes asap. You feel uncomfortable in this place.

This restaurant caters a gourmet cuisine that is second to none in the area. We have been at the restaurant 7 or more times and haven't tasted a single dish that was delicious. The portions are smaller and can be a bit pricey if ordering...More

Hands down this is the best restaurant in Vigo! We went twice for dinner in the week we were there and both times was phenomenal. The food, margaritas and service were fantastic, if this restaurant were in London would be triple the price. The staff...More
