Reservations are recommended and a must on week ends since the place is very well concurred by mostly local residents of the city. The waitress was knowledgeable, extremely pleasant and guided us expertly through the menu and the fresh catches of the day.... More

We had a wonderful dinner here- a starter of pulpo (octopus), followed by seafood paella and great wine. Our waitress was the sweetest and was very attentive. We passed on dessert, but she sent us home with a piece of cheesecake on the house.

I will recommend as a starter a variety of seafood purchased the same day at the market, the lobster paella and variety of desserts (if you are not about to explode yet). Portions... More

We asked for a recommendation out of the most touristic areas, and O Fado was the recommendation. A complete success. We were quite lucky as it uses to be full, so I do recommend reserve in advance.

We ate in O Fado 3 times. The service (and advice about what to eat) was excellent and the quality of the food superb. We were made very welcome and all three visits were very enjoyable experiences.

The Restaurant is not at all where it is placed on the Tripadvisor map. We gave up after wasting half an hour looking for it. The rating is for the carelessness of the restaurant management, not for the food.

The O 'Fado restaurant is located on the Sea walk near the Acuarius and the Domus, a privileged setting in the beautiful province of A Coruña. It offers homemade Galician cuisine of an incomparable quality.
The specialty of the house par excellence is Rice, prepared in different ways and with the best products coming from our coasts. If you wish, you can take it home. The seasonal dish is the Laconada, star product of the summer.
The O 'Fado restaurant is the best option to enjoy a quiet and pleasant meal overlooking the bay and A Coruña. Hundreds of satisfied customers endorse our reputation. The facilities we have are exceptional. You can count on a spacious living room, with large windows that allow you to observe unique views. And not only stays there, you will also have a garden area at the front of the restaurant and a playground where the little ones can enjoy while you finish your dessert.
