We arrived without a booking for dinner. It was a Sunday and the restaurant was extremely quiet. Dinner started at 8 and the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. We shared scallops and a huge sea bass with salad. The local rebeiro wine was first class. Our server was happy to offer recommendations. Certainly worth finding and significantly above average food,

We wandered into the restaurant after a short 22KM day towards Finisterre and didnt know what to order. We saw a photo of a paella on one of the reviews but didnt know how to order that specific dish as the only rice on the menu was simply with lobster. The waiter was so helpful even though he didnt speak english. He pulled out his phone and started to google translate everything he said to us. We asked for the paella and he checked with the kitchen to see if it was okay for us to order it. They said if we could wait 30 minutes they can make it for us.

It was well worth the wait. Amazing fresh seafood with perfectly cooked and seasoned rice. The seafood is under the km0 Margalaica seal, which means that the seafood is from local markets, did not suffer transports of 100+km, and captured by artisanal fishermen who live by the sea of mar galaica and who want to live on it for years to come.

They were nothing but helpful and made sure language was not a barrier.

Lordy. One should eat here. Lovely owner, amazing food, all freshly cooked. The octopus with clams was the best thing I had eaten in 2 months in Spain. GO!

We visited this restaurant at Easter time.
The place was full. We were a group of eight, we had to start zamburinas, octopus and razor clams with a citrus sauce.
To follow they suggested us a superb wild turbot for all of us.
We had a fantastic lunch .
The service was very fast and good.
We will be back.

Once again was visiting this area and was able to have several meals at O Recreo. I tried the "chuleton", fantastic, very well aged and prepared to perfection, you need to be a meat lover in order to enjoy it, tasty and generous.
I also had a paella, one of the best I ever had, lots of clams, mussels, navajas or japanese clams, huge shrimps, chicken and rice, all cooked to perfection, delightful.
You must try the spanish tortilla, Doña Carmen makes it perfect, moist and delicious, it is amazing that a simple dish as this one, potatos, eggs and salt can be this wonderful.
The O Recreo is a must when visiting this area, great food, excellent service and fairly priced, you can´t go wrong.
