Had some good seafood. But.. The service was indiferent and they got the order wrong and made no effort to correct it just shrugged shoulders. As a regular visitor to Vigo I will be trying some of the other near by restaurants in the future. .Price was ok.

It was the first seafood cafe we tried in Vigo, and we were not disappointed. We had a seafood plate for 2 (which might have served well to feed four!), it was huge. Blissfully unaware of the plate size we also ordered some other dishes, and ended up almost rolling out of the cafe. I guess it was the only... More

Went for a seafood plate and were not disappointed. Come very hungry, as the plate is enormous. Price/quality ratio is good. Location can't be better.

Located one block from the cruise ship port across the street and up 1 hill street to Calle de Pescaderia. This is an area known for excellent Galician gastronomic dishes. We had great service that provided suggestions for a local wine to go with our excellent octopus dish and the tasty green peppers grown nearby. They brought us FREE of... More

I definitely recommend this place to everyone who is interested in having a nice time and amazing food in a friendly atmosphere! The owners of the restaurant Jose and Maria are wonderful people, they helped me to organize a dinner-surprise for my sister and her husband! Everything was just excellent! Thank you very much!

Fantastic!!! That is the only word that covers it - the service is fantastic as is the food. Come off the Cruise ship and walked here in no longer than 10 minutes!! We are here because it's my fathers 65th birthday today and what an excellent decision. If you're visiting Vigo and want seafood DO NOT go elsewhere!!! You will... More

I saw other posts saying this is difficult to find, so some hints -- close by to the Mercado de A Pedra and behind the Bahia Hotel. This street is loaded with seafood restaurants and the various waiters/owners will ply you to come in to their locale. We tried only Casa Vella, so we can only speak to this restaurant.... More

I had a difficult time finding this place, even taxi drivers didn't know the street name. Just remember "Casco Viejo" Mercado. The seafood was abundant and good. Close quartered with many other fish restaurants, so extremely noisy outside dining and many distractions, try dining inside with limited seating. Not a place for a quiet intimate lunch. It's like eating on... More

The waiter and the owner both made suggestions as to what was good that night and we had a great evening. calamari, razor clams, oysters, scallops, fried peppers, wine, digestivi and cover for...

Choose Our area Located in the heart of Vigo's touristic zone, Casa Vella lets you enjoy the best dishes in a cozy atmosphere that contrasts with the famous and picturesque Oysters Street, full of dynamism and movement. Next to it, A Pedra market and the selling of seafood and oysters make this place one of the most emblematic places of the city. We always opt for products of the highest quality, which we utilize both in our specialties, like grilled seafood and lobster rice, and in simpler dishes and varied 'tapas'.
