Locals and tourists are enjoying true homemade Galician cooking. And it is not only the great Pulpo or Polbo: they have plenty of fresh seafood and tasty tapas. Even Caldo Gallego! It is a place to share plates and drink viños galegos, like Ribeiro Cacheiro or Albariño Cacheiro. The service is super friendly and they accommodate themselves to your special... More

Table had pulpo á feria, gambas á la plancha, pimentos de Padrón, albariño, chupito. All excellent. The kind of Gallician cooking you read about - simple ingredients, perfectly done. Service quick, unpretentious, warm. A place you'd travel to eat in.

So good we went back the next evening. Unassuming little restaurant near the Parador, with very friendly service and lovely local food. Nothing fancy, but cooked well and good value.

I'd been told that this restaurant was a local favorite and now I understand why. Great seafood. Fresh and served simply.

We went to the place at lunch time in mid July. Was not very crowded. We ordered squid a la plancha which were well made, besides we had a simple salad, which was just a few slices of tomato and onions on top of lettuce and a tortilla bocadillo (sandwich) which was pretty big. Overall the place is nice but... More

A good pulpo restaurant. Although, I did not warm up to the Galician pulpo dish, I still enjoyed their food, as they have some great scallops.

Wonderful tapas and wine at reasonable prices in a friendly family owned restaurant. The Santiago family, father, mother and son, suggested various appetizers to share, local wine and gone made desserts. We will certainly go back.

One of my favourites in Pontevedra. Never disappoints. Very traditional Galician food, masterly cooked. The pulpo is to die for. Don't expect any fancy fusion or elaborate salads though. This is a no non-sense traditional venue with the most popular local dishes skillfully cooked.
