We had dinner here and the experience was great. Looking at the chefs preparing the dishes was awesome. I highly recommend it.

Called them on a Thursday afternoon, and they offered me a table for 2 at 9:30 same night. That isn't normal for a Michelin starred restaurant, and despite the overwhelmingly +ve reviews on TA, I had a gnawing sense of doubt that the ease of booking signified something amiss. The location is inauspicious, on a side street, opposite a kebab... More

Visited here with a group for lunch. Outstanding food and service. We had something like 8 courses - though each was relatively small.

The best ever spent 26EUR for a 6 meals set. Delicious and perfect combination of how it looks and how it tastes. Going there is a must!

Great dining experience. Each dish beautifully presented and very interesting tastes. Couldn't believe we could get a reservation on a Friday night so easily. Staff really helpful and nice. Would go back to Ourense just to go here again. Most amazing value

Amazing use of really fresh ingredients. Casual yet chic. The chef really knows what he's doing. Fine dining at its best. Our only complaint is they really rushed each dish. They need to slow it down quite a bit in order to really enjoy the experience. A must goto in Ourense! The chef brought out the desert and it made... More

The food was great, they know how to use the local fresh products (they change very often, depending on what they find at the market). The place is really comfy, everyone was very nice, you can see thay love what they do.

This restaurant is new ground in Ourense in terms of innovation. It's fine dining has been rewarded with a Michelin star very quickly. Prices are very reasonable for this level of dining, and they have a fine selcetion of Galician wines and the mark-up is most reasonable. Some dishes need a bit of ironing out in terms of flavour or... More

Nova offers 3 different menus and changes them weekly, so the menus always include seasonal products from the region (wild mushrooms now for instance). We choose the first menu (28€/pers without drinks), and were utterly impressed and pleased with the quality offered. Service is very professional. Choice between 3 types of artisanal breads. All extra´s (water, wine, coffee) are very... More

I've been to Nova twice now. Once with a small group and once with a large group of about 30. In both cases, the service was excellent and the atmosphere was very comfortable. I was pleased that the quality of the meal stayed the same despite the larger group of people. The food is high quality and beautifully presented. The... More
