My husband and I are visiting Santiago de Composrela from the US and wanted to try something new and we found a jewel in Markesa! The fusion of Japanese and local Galician delicacies were delightfully unique and exquisitely delicious. The service was 5 star and the atmosphere relaxing and joyful. Our server, Sofie was the best!. She was sweet, funny... More

I have been visiting Santiago every year for over 10 years, mainly by walking the Camino de Santiago. I found this restaurant a couple of years ago and have been there every time we are in town (twice a year). Sebastian and his wife are a delight; young, innovative and energetic couple who are not afraid to change and adopt... More

Don't eat Ramen because they make the Ramen soup just with Doha sauce and water!!!!!Everyone knows that the soup must be made with meat soup.If you wanna try just go supermarket and buy a bottle of soja sauce,mix it with hot water then some noodle.Make it!! 非要打中文OK,这里的拉面汤用酱油和开水直接放一起就完事儿了,太唬人了,还卖十二欧一碗,面是泡面,整个一点诚意都没有,是我吃过的最不用心的拉面

After a morning sightseeing in Santiago de Compostella we were debating where to lunch when at a convenient corner near La Salle parking where the car was, we saw an intriguing sign "Izakaya Gallega". Well being fond of the Japanese pub food outlets in the first part of the name we decided to give it a try. Best decision for... More

We were told at 3:00 PM that they were full with no service available for the rest of the day. I've never heard such a thing at a restaurant. Having read some of the reviews, i now understand the comments about poor service. Too bad there aren't many more options for Japanese food in Santiago.

Having walked for over a month on the Camino I was desperate for some Asian-type food and some rice that wasn't paella. This restaurant was recommended and it didn't disappoint. It is small and cosy and the food was delicious. We went there for lunch. I had the Mixed Tempura (prawns and vegetables) and it was fab. Then one of... More

I tried to book a table in advance, but no answer. I called the second they opened, but were told that we couldn't come for another 30 minutes. Some of us ordered a set menu, and some ordered a selection of sushi. The food arrived extremely slowly, and we were never actually eating at the same time. It was way... More

We ate lunch here after visiting the two nearby museums (which are great!). I had the menu del dia which was a great deal at €9.50. It included market tempura (veggies, fish and calamar) which was crispy and perfect. The second dish was a combo sushi plate, super fresh and also delicious. The menu also came with a drink, alcoholic... More
