If you want a place with good food and quality service than this is the place to go for a quiet romantic meal. People complain about the price but I believe it is worth every penny.

This restaurant is and has been for a long time, a place of reference in the city. Each time, you get a warm welcome and excellent traditional Galician food. For me it is safe value, I know what I expect and they deliver every time. Thank you.
