Spoiler warning: I live in Pontevedra and have my lunchtime 'tiffin' here most days. This is my second review, prompted by the fact that it doesn't have the rating it deserves. It's located in a superb spot, in a corner of the main square in the old quarter, at the start of a narrow lane that runs down to the Plaza de Leña. It's a fabulous spot to people-watch on spring, summer and autumn evenings and I've made some great friends through meeting camino pilgrims and tourists there. If you're in Pontevedra for only one night, go straight to it and see if you like what it offers. If you are there for a few nights, eat at other places until you get fed up of seeing the same offerings on nearly every other tapas/restaurant menu at other places and then check out the original variations which the chef, Marta, has put together. The basic tapas dishes are priced competitively but you can go upstream for more substantial dishes at good prices, if you want. I've taken many friends there over the last year or two and none of them has been the slightest bit disappointed. Though Galicians who favour only traditional dishes can be a bit sniffy about Marta's original new versions. My daughters and their friends particularly enjoy her 'ecological salad' but I go for one of the new dishes - salmon stuffed with guacamole, covered in a mayonnaise spiced up with jalopeno peppers. Or, for a real treat, her venison dish. But I'm sure you'll find something to suit your taste and your pocket. There are 2 entrances, the one in Rúa Conde de San Román is wheelchair accessible. The one where I sit outside to people watch is in Rúa Figueroa, in the corner of Plaza Herrería/Plaza Estrella.
