We went there in the New Year' s Eve and we had a seafood combo which was very good, with a fair quality/ price ratio! Not the best restaurant in town, obviously, but with good food and reasonable price for the amount and quality of the seafood served! The service was excellent, very warm and nice staff!

We went and had the 10 Euro special for that you get starter,main, small dessert, beer and wine and coffee to finish excellent value. The waiter could speak English and did all he could for us like taking photos of table and was helpfully with a big smile on his face. Meal came very quickly and all 6 dishes were... More

This is a small authentic Spanish restaurant. It is one among many but stands out due to the friendliness of the staff, the excellent food and the enormous portions. They specialise in fish and seafood but also offer excellent steaks and a mixed grill for two which you should only choose if you are really hungry! We ate here on... More

Enticed me in with the pilgrims menu and then didn't show it to me when I sat down. Wasn't bothered as I did not want full meal but..... had a salad which had everything in it and still to much for me to eat. The flan was huge and pretty tasty.

We thought the 10 euro daily menu offered exceptional value for money. There is a large selection of starters and mains and a small dessert. The deal also included a large glass of wine (or other beverage), a large basket of bread and coffee. We chose the soup and sauteed chicken breast, both served hot and tasty. Our waiter was... More

Great choice for menu del dia - a lot of different entries, main dishes and deserts for the price of one portion of tapas at many restaurants in Santiago. This is not Michelin star, but the food is tasty, fresh and portions are big. Try pulpo a la gallega as main dish.

Totally indifferent food - excepting the pulpo - served in what I would describe as 'fast as we can and get them out in order to reuse the table'. When fruit salad was proposed for the pudding, I was stunned to find tinned fruit salad in that awful sugary syrup was brought to the table. Help !! This is a... More

My family and I wanted to have some typical food so we went in after having had a look at the dishes board. The waiters were very kind and served quickly. The food was great and the price very good as well. Three menus, lamb chopsticks, drinks, one extra dessert... €51 and smiling waiters for free. It's a restaurant I... More

After reading the negative reviews of Ribadavia, I wondered if we went to the same place because our experience there was a really good one. In fact we went there twice. Maybe it had something to do with what we ordered. The luck of the draw, so to speak. We chose the restaurant because of its location. It is near... More
