This is a place I would never get in if it wasnt for a recommendation. A local recommended the place as fresh see food, and a place that locals go. Very typical !!
Very simple environment but great atmosphere! Always full, the service keeps being excellent! Food is indeed fresh and delicious.

We had been recommended this place by somebody had been. In our three days in Santiago, we ate there twice. Prepare for having to queue for a table (we waited for half an hour) but you should not be disappointed. Their dishes are simple and traditional but very, very good. The decor is very basic. The prices are unbeatable - the cheapest we found in Santiago! The first night we had a pot of wine, bread, the sausage in red wine (excellent!), soup, and onion-fried liver, and the bill came to 18€. The 2nd time we had the sausage, cockles and crab as well as a slice of cake, wine and a coke - 24€.
You shouldn't miss out on a meal there!

Spent a few hours in here one night. The staff were great, and the atmosphere was tip-top. Prices are good, and all toilets clean. Many thanks Black Cat, see you again. C

One of the two best pulpo a feira in Santiago (the two have different cooking methods: the gato negro is soft and uniformly cooked). Also very good are the chocos en su tinta. If you want to taste an empanada (the thin way) above average, you have to go early, say before 9-930pm. After that time it will most probably be finished... But you would still have good mariscos of all kind. Percebes are excellent and expensive, but if you don't have the possibility to cook them on your own, you should definitely give them a try!
The house white wine is a fair Ribeiro and perfectly fits with the food. The staff is very kind and easy-going. The atmosphere is spanish-country, or better galician-country, but reasonably neat. The room at the back might be a bit suffocating in very hot days, but there is some aircon.

This restaurant is a must in Santiago.

Food was great! First room is a little crowded and hot but the inner room was fine. Fact that the place was packed is testimony to how good the food is. We had mussels and percebes. Very fresh, not a lot of seasoning but that brought out the inherent flavour of our food.
