“nice italian restaurant”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

If you had too much octopuss and want to escape to traditional italian food that's the place. Tiny restaurant in front of the beautiful gardens in front of the Fonseca Palace.

“Great experience to have Italian in the middle of Spain”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

The Bruschetta was not too bad. I really enjoyed the Ravioli. What I enjoyed most was the size of the portion was not too large. The Sangria was quite enjoyable.

Over all this was a great experience to have a break from Jamon Con queso. It was getting old.....

Go and enjoy!

“Should´ve gone to Burger King”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Too touristy and prices reflect that. 13 euros for a plate of quite frankly 2nd rate pasta that looked like it came out of a Dolmio´s jar. Avoid.

“Good food but but pay attencion to the bill.”
Reviewed September 2, 2011

Me and Six Pilgrim Friends decided celebrate the end of our pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela with a dinner at "Gambrinus" an Italian restaurant. The food was good and restaurant is cozy... The problems started when the bill was presented to us. First we detected that they charged us €36 for 7 small breads... (€ 5.14 per bread) and €5 for a 75ml for each bottle of water.
We asked the waiter what was wrong with that bill... He looked too surprised and then he went to talk to the restaurant owner. After a few minutes he came up with the correct bill. Everyone makes mistakes... But by the look on the face of the waiter this is a common mistake at "Gambrinus" in Santiago Compostela. If you visit this restaurant please double check your bill. Please note that in my pilgrimage through Galicia the other restaurants I visited were very good.
