We called into this little tapas bar on a sleepy Sunday evening in Pontevedra after having a few dishes in some of the other local bars.
We had the fried fish and a couple of glasses of wine. It took quite a long time for the fish to arrive and when they did they were very dry and not the nice soft moist kind one expects with this tapas dish. I would be almost certain they were not fresh and instead defrosted and cooked or cooked from frozen. The dryness and lack of flavour suggested this.
In terms of decor, it is more upmarket than some of the other establishments but for me the charm of eating in an old town in Spain is to feel at one with the environment. This didn't offer
On the same street there is two fantastic tapas bars, both of which I have reviewed. I would try those before El Aleph.
