A cosy place that is well located. Even though the staff were all friendly and the food was cheap with generous portions, the service was poor and the food somewhat tasteless.

This restaurant is located in a square close to the cathedral. There were about ten selections all priced around 9.5 euros. Water, bread, and dessert came with the meal. Wine was extra but very reasonably priced. The meals were very tasty.

You get a very good portion of food for a great price and it is good food! The waiters are fast and friendly and though it might be incredibly busy at times, tables move fast so you don't end up waiting for too long.

We ate here twice, the first time was excellent. The second time, I think we were served leftovers. The service is quick and we were in a hurry to catch a train, so it was a good choice if that is your dilemma.

Unless you're a student on a serious budget or have zero discriminating taste, just avoid this place. Yes, it's €9.50 for 2 courses, but the value stops there. The Galician squid stew was actually inedible, and the salmon (which was recommended by the waiter) was so overcooked that it was chalky. I The service was scattered at best, though the... More

This is a classic stop on a pilgrim's visit to the old city: lunch at Casa Manolo. It is located up the street and around the corner from the cathedral. They do not take reservations. You give your name and number of people in your party and then wait to be called. The 9,50€ fixed price menu has abundant food,... More

Went to Casa Manolo for lunch, but It's not a place where I enjoy my meal. Much to busy for that. Waiters are running around like crazy. No personale service. It seems more like a place for the hip ones. Food's average, but I have to admit, Manolo serves me the best sidra on the complete Camino.

Stopped by for dinner at the end of our camino de santiago since we had heard so much about it for days. It did not disappoint. Menu is 9,50€ and has plenty of options to choose from. We had the lentejas, which were amazing and the cordon bleu pork. Fantastic. Service was very friendly. Worth a second visit.
