Ate lunch there today and had a magnificent pork stew. One order was plenty for two to share for lunch. Would go again!

This is a 4 star restaurant. We had eggplant, fresh white asparagus, clams with artichoke and tuna tartaric followed by in house chocolate ice cream. The wine selection is extensive and we'll priced. Ask for Alex, he will look after you. I believe the restaurant is associated with O Curro de Parma.

Far and away the best meal we had during a recent trip to Galicia. The food was simple but beautifully cooked and well presented. An extensive and very well priced wine list. The staff are pleasant and knowledgeable. Nice ambience. Highly recommended.

On the plus side, this has a cosy, welcoming decor and that was appreciated on a cold night. The service was also reasonably prompt. On the downside, the prompt service was cold and disapproving of our enquiries about tapas. We did not want a huge meal at 7 pm; we wanted something small but were not trying to get a... More

Cafe de Altamira is a charming, beautiful restaurant with outstanding food at reasonable (by American standards) prices. I felt so lucky that we were able to get in (mostly because we were eating on American time before the rush of Spanish diners arrived). The decor is unique and appealing. The food features the best of the local market. I would... More

I ordered the octopus, fish of the day, and the creme brulee, which I enjoyed with a couple of glasses of a fresh white wine. Everything was delicious, particularly the octopus and creme brulee. The waiters were lovely and very helpful. While this is not the cheapest place you'll find in Santiago de Compostela, but the food, atmosphere, and service... More

A great location off the beaten tourist streets - just opposite the Mercado. Nice service and they even offered the guests Empanadas for free when we where there. Find it -> go there!

The food was delightful and the service impeccable! The restaurants itself is really nice and comfortable and I personally liked the decoration and music in the room. We ordered the salmon and pulpo and we recommend!!

You might not quite like the location (in a busy street on the edge of the market ) but you can always eat in the large interior). We choose to eat outside and watch the (busy!) world go by. For food, I have a suggestion if you want a light lunch of considerable quality. The menu is divided up into... More
