Ranked #9 of 382 Restaurants in Pontevedra
Certificate of Excellence
Restaurant details
Reviewed 23 August 2017

This restaurant is absolutely amazing. Although the exterior doesn't seem very appealing, indoors is very modern and cozy. The dishes are innovative but with a high quality of the traditional food at the region. They play with flavours and textures and of course with the dish presentation. Portions are very good and price is not expensive at all for the quality. Highly recomendable especially if you want to eat something different in Pontevedra. For our family, it is the best restaurant there.

Their last tapa for "Pontetapas" festival was great. It's good for an afternoon beer and a morning vermouth. They have a daily menu too. Sometimes it look like all restaurant in Pontevedra have the same menu when something becomes trendy.

We really wanted to love the food here.
It's a stunningly beautiful restaurant in the middle of a lovely park. With the autumn leaves falling as we watched, and groups of little kids running around outside playing, there are probably no better places to go in this town on a romantic lunch or dinner.
But the food was a disappointment. The steak we ordered was so full of fat and gristle that we could barely slice or chew it. The fish was not fresh and almost flavorless. The appetizers were uninspired and not fresh. How can a place less than a mile from the ocean serve stale, old mussels and flavorless, dry, shriveled shrimp? We left over half of our food uneaten even though we were famished.
The main saving grace was ironically the tiny piece of food they gave us upon entry, to quell our hunger while we waited for our order. They gave us little crackers with ham and smoky cheese, and some red sauce on top. So incredibly delicious and different than other ham and cheese we'd eaten here that we were excited to see what came next. Only to be disappointed.
