We had just finished the Camino Portuguese and were looking for a place to celebrate. Luckily for us the bar across the street didn’t serve food so we tried Petiscos do Cardeal instead. We sat in the back on the outside terrace and had the best tapas ever! Great service too! So good we went back again the next night and everything was just as good!

We stopped here for a late lunch. We were drawn in by the bar and the produce on show. Not disappointed. We had razor clams, scallops, chorizo, morcillo and a pincho of tortilla. Desert was Crema Catalans! All delicious. Wine good. Service excellent! Glad we stopped by! If you like seafood, then you won’t be disappointed!

There are a lot of restaurants to chose from in this street, we wandered in here because a nice produce display in the window and a nice terrace at the back. A good selection of very reasonably priced tapas( or petiscos in Galician) . They were all very nice but the star of the show was the pulpo. I’ve had it in Galicia and other places in Spain but this was by far the best . Juicy and melt in the mouth tender with local cachelo potatoes cooked perfectly and that is basically where the 5 stars come from. Absolutely beautiful.

My wife, adult son and I had an excellent tapas and wine lunch here. The scallops were particularly good. Total cost €57.40 - very good value for the quality.
