Description: Choose Our area Located in the heart of Vigo's touristic zone, Casa Vella lets you enjoy the best dishes in a cozy atmosphere that contrasts with the famous and picturesque Oysters Street, full of dynamism and movement. Next to it, A Pedra market and the selling of seafood and oysters make this place one of the most emblematic places of the city. We always opt for products of the highest quality, which we utilize both in our specialties, like grilled seafood and lobster rice, and in simpler dishes and varied 'tapas'.

My wife and I had lunch here on a Tuesday and were very impressed by the quality of the octopus a fiera and the fried calamari. The ensalada mixta was also the best we have had on our tour of Spain. They also sold albarino by the half bottle which was good as I was the only drinker. hey do not have oysters on the menu but that is not a problem as you can just walk 20 metres up the street and buy some from the street vendors and eat them standing up before you go to lunch. Very affordable and great quality.

Best percebes I ever had paired with Albariño wine. Came a long way to Vigo for best food and excellent service by Rafa and Roberto. Given they are not an oyster house they don’t serve oysters yet they brought us oyster from next door oyster house. Amazing food and service!!! Highly recommend.

The restaurant is set within a street with many other restaurants but I believe that Casa Vella was the best. The waiters were very friendly and helpful especially as we didn’t speak much Spanish. They were great with my children and even gave them lollipops at the end of their meal. The menus were translated into various languages and also had photos of the food available which was an excellent idea. The food was very fresh and scumptious, I recommed the Calamari, it was delicious even my child tried some and ended up eating half the plate. A great restaurant in a busy area, don’t expect a quiet meal. Definitely worth a visit.

V attentive staff. Food generally good but octopus not as tasty as other restaurants we tried. Calamari excellent. Mussels good. Nice atmosphere on street - covered which helps when it rains. Wine excellent as always.

Lunch stop with friends was alongside several restaurants & fish market close to port. Staff friendly. We had a bottle of vino & shared order of jumbo prawns and calamari. Calamari set the bar and was freshest we all have had. Would skip prawns & double order calamari next time. Many street vendors stopping to bug us.
