We took the EUR40 tasting menu and that is really good value. The wooden interior is carefully done with comfortable chairs and the cutlery is bespoke too. Lucia Freitas kicks things off with snacks and you immediately have your taste buts in overdrive. Personally I prefer chopsticks to pick the food, not my hands. Croquettas with chocolate is not something you'd expect as a starter and so too the corn soup. For us the ceviche of scallops with ice cream and caviar was a highlight. So too the tomatoes with figs. We knew we had chosen the right restaurant. The hake and the pig dish were technically executed to perfection but perhaps less daring than the dishes before. The 'la vie en rose' was a delightful desert and so too the biscuits. Happy to recommend the 2010 Allende Rioja. With some tweaks I'm sure Lucia and her brigade will go places. One to try and experience. Certainly one to follow.

We dined at this restaurant based on reviews on Trip Advisor. The food and presentation was excellent. All 4 of us ordered from the a la carte menu and had different dishes and all were superb. The meal started with fabulous Bread, Snacks and a Mackerel soup which were complimentary. We also enjoyed the local Galician wine. We strongly recommend A Tafona.

Absolutely amazing!! We had the tasting menu - which was unbelievable value! - and incredibly good, plus THEIR BREAD!! We normally don't eat bread, but i read it in a review and decided to try it here...best bread i ever had - you have to try it. From the tasting menue we specially loved the steak tartar, the canelloni and the desert. Produce, execution, flavours and presentation perfect. Very friendly service, with good wine recommendation.

The appetizer and dessert were amazing and completely out of the ordinary. Also, enjoyed the water choice as well as the fresh bread which was brought. The full menu offered a wide selection of local flavors which was nice, but the highlights---definitely the beginning and the end.
