Home cooking style food. Great service. The service was good even though the waitron only spoke Galacian. She was happy to be of service. I would recommend this place without a doupt.

This is a bar that has not been touched in 40-50 years. The decor and the lighting is nonexistent. It is authentic and popular amongst locals but if you only have a few days in the city I would skip it. I had the octopus...More

This place is one of the many Spanish bars that have been around since the 50's for the locals and still survived almost untouched. Best time to visit is in the afternoon, as we discovered. We went at night time and it was almost impossible...More
